Expanded Timeline For After Chaos (AC) Part 189

Year 189 AC
A drought runs through Ariella, with crops dying and many animals dying.  Many of those who farm ask for aid from their leaders, but they can do little, either.  The leader of Notitia asks for aid from the north.  He gets some, in the form of food and mages to clean water, but it costs more then normal, nearly bankrupting the city state.

Lumber prices go up this year because of ogre and other monster attacks at a lot of the logging locations in the Tsalagi Mountains.  Nearby cities and towns try to send help, because lumber is so important, but they just aren't enough.  A call for adventurers is put forth, with small to large bounties promised for results.

Year 187 AC
A small magical battle between two Gods happens off the west coast of Ariella, well out in the ocean.  Though no one was sure if anyone was harmed, the blow back was felt across the world.  Magic becomes weird and unpredictable for some time after the event and priests were unable to contact any of their Gods during this strange period.  The Gods involved are not known, though some speculate Targon and Lokar, but no one is positive.

Expanded Timeline For After Chaos (AC) Part 186

Year 186 AC
A large city is uncovered in the southern deserts of Ariella.  Strange noises and lights are heard and seen, though few have been brave enough to venture into the ruins.  There have been several expeditions of brave scholars and adventurers to venture in, but none have returned.  The rumors of gold and treasure, though no one has actually returned from the city, are spurring more people to venture in.  No one is sure what civilization made the city.  Clearly it is from the time of Chaos, though some wonder if it is a city from the future that has been blown into the past because of some great calamity.

Year 185 AC

Expanded Timeline For After Chaos (AC) Part 184

Year 184 AC
This years gathering is postponed because of a huge tornado which goes through the town of Gathering.  It is odd, for the terrain is not set for tornadoes and many think that a mage or rogue druid caused the damage.  Though disappointment at having to wait until the following year to have the gathering is felt, the fact that the mercenaries in the area are being hired to find the magic user still makes them happy and their purses full.

A group of bards starts working on a way to get news around the country.  They decide to use the runners, but also start working on a magic that may allow people to talk across great distances.

A quick snow melt and heavy rains in the southern reaches of the Tsalagi Mountains affects many of the nearby villages and towns, but also uncovers and old mine system.  There seems to be little ore or gems, but there are strange writings and equipment discovered near the mouth.  None of the locals want to explore much further in, though.

Year 177 AC
A man, speaking a language no one knows, washes up on the eastern shore of Taina near Marshland, just a little south of Karoon.  He clearly was a sailor, but his dress was odd, made of material softer and finer then any had seen.  He dies soon after being rescued, but scholars from all over come to see him and his attire before he is laid to rest.  No one is sure where he came from and it becomes a large mystery for several years, fueling fireside tales of lost cities in the sea and sending many treasure hunters to their deaths.

A stock of amethyst is found in a cave in the southern reaches of Ariella.  A group is sent to mine it, but they are not heard of after a few weeks of work.  Another group is sent to check  in on them, and they are not heard from as well.  The nearby cities and villages ask for help in finding out what is going on.

This year the crop of apples is so great that the year is called the Year of the Apple.  Apple celebrations are held in many places, and even though other foods may be in short of supply, the apple crop sees many villages through the winter.
