Current Events

This page documents current events and significant plot developments that characters are assumed to be aware of. The ongoing fallout affects the grid and may be a point of roleplay.

  • 1208-Present: The Black Cross openly attacks D'Angelines and builds support in other nations who resent Terre d'Ange as a soft land corrupted by demonic influences. The extremist movement gathers aid from unknown sources to weaken D'Angeline interests abroad and targets prominent individuals for assassination, including dukes and duchesses.
  • 1210-1211: Vralia invades the Flatlands on the northern border of Terre d'Ange. In response, Terre d'Ange votes to go to war and attacks the Skaldi-led mercenary forces. Foreign aid helps bolster the Royal Army and provincial levies. However, by war's end there is no clear victor in the conflict.
  • 1211: King Augustine levies increased taxes on the provinces to pay for the Flatlands War. On Longest Night, all scions of the Companions felt their powers restored in a surge of powers and some experienced the emergence of greater, new abilities.
