War continues to plague the south, and springs up in the east.
- While the fighting pauses in a stalemate in southern Medoere, the Spider’s forces leave their rampage in the north to invade Diemed.
- William Moergen calls to his allies that the time to liberate Osoerede is now, as he leads a mixed force of Mercenaries raised in Rosoene forward. Already Aerenwe has answered the call – who next will see the rightful regent on the throne?
- Boeruine and Avanil are at peace for the moment, busy getting their own houses in order. While Boeruine accepts Talinie’s vassalage quietly and without complications, Prince Avan’s investiture as liege-lord of Taeghas, Brosegnae & Mieres is slightly delayed by an attempt on the Prince’s life. Though the assassination fails, the truth behind the assassin’s origins remains a mystery, leaving a dark stain on the supposed loyalty of the new vassals.
