– Queen Helga proudly announces her pregnancy with Kah’th, formerly of the Crusaders. She gives birth later that month to 3 Troll Shamans.

September 784
– After thousands march on the Council in protest of the secrecy on Resurrection, the Council releases scientific journals on the magic of Resurrection. It shows that at most someone can be resurrected three times, but it takes a person of great skill to do so, and each time is more difficult and dangerous, potentially causing the resurrector to be lost in the process. It also takes people particularly strong of soul to be resurrected, thus making it clear that very few people can actually be resurrected in any capacity.

October 784
– Samhain returns. The Federational Isles, in exchange for rescuing all of Samhain’s cats stuck in trees, which were actually Felis imprisoned by a Niskaru, were cleared of all Void creatures for one month. This gave the Isles an unprecedented amount of time to prepare and plan for Void attacks.

November 785
– a Day of No Conflict (on Dwarvish New Year) was observed as all allied nations in the Council, Ceres, and Federational Isles laid down their weapons and put a hold on hostile spells for one day in celebration of harmony. Ongoing conflicts resumed the day after, but prisoners of war were released and the injured were allowed escape from the warzones to heal.
– the largest Void assault since the time a random decrepit halfling closed the last one occurred during this month in the Isles, but was fended off thanks to planning during Samhain’s promised month

December 785
– The Queen of Hell meets with the Supreme Elder, but is immediately assaulted by the Holy Triumvirate upon her entry into the Council. She kills many, marking an unknown amount, before leaving. It is believed that she intended on discussing the situation in Kelta regarding the City of Dis still lying there, but no one is sure.

January 785
– Bawerstrom finally rids itself of the demons and the Black Sky Covenant, returning order to the land. Rebuilding efforts are delayed as focus is placed on the near underwater city of Kestral Point, building docks and fortifying the wall around the city, the only thing keeping it from being underwater.

February 785
– Thanks to preparation, a rogue wave hits Kestral Point, Bawerstrom, but is fended off successfully with little ocean water entering the city. Efforts have been made to now ensure that natural light can reach down into the city. Gnomes of Glimlit have arrived and turned the walls semi-transparent so that light can shine through the walls above surface and to provide a unique underwater sight below the surface. This has caused a boom in tourism of the city and an influx of support for Bawerstrom rebuilding efforts.

March 785
– a Fae of Building appeared in Keimin, randomly accelerating the construction process, but also altering some building designs to work in some cases where it shouldn’t have. These “Fae Buildings” are deemed Council property, although already existing tenants continue to live there uninterrupted besides the occasional scientist or enchanter checking the building out.

April 785
– the Council announces that despite population decreases, the world is on a positive mend, although issues of food shortages have been increasing over the two years. Hellgates and the Holy Triumvirate responses have become increasingly the norm, and the Fae are now even welcomed, especially given that Samhain’s recent gift to the Isles was so positive.
– Tohu and Bohu are observed trying to enter a Cullis Gate, but recent updates prevented the Endbringers from making it to Keimin, although the attempt sparks worries about Jormungandr swimming to the continent.
