Calendar Events

Hey, y'all!  This topic is to keep people apprised of upcoming events in the setting of Shaintar that might be of interest for games.  I'll keep it updated to the current official timeline; please feel free to chime in with any approved major events that happen in your games as well!

[Edit: Moved it to a more appropriate forum.]

As of November, we're into the months of Raining Leaves and Harvest Moons!

Lunar Events

All three moons will be full on 33 Harvest Moons: a great time for anyone planning a big ritual.

Setting News

In the Wildlands, the cold war between the Trells (Nortrell and Montrell) has heated up into a full-blown threat: the current ruler of Montrell is intending to unify all the Wildlands through conquest, and both Trells have abruptly forbidden Ranger presence.  Nearby outposts do not need to concern themselves directly, as the Rangers of Silverport are assigned with taking care of the issue, but there is a definite disruption of trade, and lots of unrest and worry, particularly in the areas immediately surrounding the Trells.

(This event will be resolved before the final week of Harvest Moons.)

In the Prelacy, things are getting a bit shaken up during Raining Leaves: 

  • Baron Renfare in southern Camon has been found to be a traitor. Troops sent to arrest him were wiped out entirely, and the Baron and his family have escaped.  This will obviously have a severe impact on the availability of troops in the area.
  • A small-town cathedral was invaded in the central Camon area by outsiders, including a massive ogre, an elf, and a stolen golem.  Local troops were wiped out; again, an impact on local troop availability.
  • A high-ranking Inquisitor has vanished while on the job in the tunnels beneath Camon, apparently arrested and presumed killed.

Now that it's December, we're headed into the month White Stag!

Lunar Events

None in particular.  Everyone's recovering from their big rituals on the last day of last month. -_^

Setting News

In the Wildlands, there's been a strange group of necromantic vigilantes moving through from the southern coasts.  They call themselves "the Freemen," and follow a distant, mysterious leader known only as "the Visionary," who preaches a religion of salvation through Darkness.  These people are known for attacking bandits, killing them, and removing their eyes, then animating the cadavers as foot soldiers.  Additionally, higher-level priests of this cult wear masks of black wings covering their eyes, operating through use of the Mind's Eye spell.  

Another event in the Wildlands is a cavalcade moving through the areas.  If you are looking for a fun place to send your rangers, you could do worse than a travelling fair!

I so heart this. We need to get this back into more active promotion once the Bible is done.

"There is no heroism without sacrifice. For this, I am terribly sorry."

I agree Sean and I think if we update the Shaintar Calendar it will help us keep focus on these cultural events and celebrations.
