An Earthquake Shakes the Mainland

Winterstime, 750 SG

In the heart of winter, in the dead of night, a tremor suddenly erupted from somewhere in the caverns deep below Tonovi. The mountain groaned and the earth trembled. Everyone, from the top of the Dagger reaches to the roots of Talzashaar's Teeth, felt the ground shake beneath them. In the northern cities of Tonovi, Torm and Nurval, windows broke from the tremors in the ground and a tidal wave erupted from the coast of Nurval, tipping one boat and damaging several others in Torm harbor. There were no other noticeable casualties, but many farmers are now spending their days locating panicked life-stock and repairing wooden sheds. Nobody has yet found the cause of the earthquake, but that same night, the shadows in every crook and cranny looked just a little brighter.

As a result, the northern cities have all dispatched teams of investigators to examine the cause of the tremor. A rumor resurfaces, whispers long kept in check by Tonovi Authorities, of something dark growing beneath the city, driving travelers and soldiers insane. The Duchess of Tonovi denies these rumors, just as they deny the interference of foreign investigators on their land.

The following morning, word comes from Antioch of a miracle. The spirit of their former guardian Kyra appeared by the gates, her translucent form glowing with the radiance of the rising sun. She touched the new guardian lightly upon the cheek and graced onlookers with one final warm and inviting smile, before transcending into the heavens above to rest in Jarmila's halls.

A Warm Spring

A VERY WARM SPRING

Springstime, 750 SG

Springtime has finally arrived, and after a chill winter ("though not as chill as the winters we used to have"), nobles and commoners alike are happy to cast off their winter coat and bask in the sun. As temperatures increase far above the normal level, however, people begin to wonder. Was spring always this warm? Surely, temperatures never used to be quite this high? ("Except for the spring of my youth, or thereabouts, of course, when the sun shone so hot it burnt the hair right off my head!") Farmers all around the realm are seeing their crops begin to bloom far too early. Fishermen are also reporting changes in fish migration patterns and in the wilds, animals are beginning to mate much earlier than usual. All in all, though, most people are just enjoying a bit of warmth and peace.


(OOC: You will not see any mechanical changes in the weather, please RP as though it is always at least 10 degrees warmer than the "weather command" tells you, and quite sunny.)

Odin Says: You will notice mechanical changes to the weather command. Use it.
