The End of the Great Fae War
Rain fell around the New Calendale residents as they pleaded for the lives of all of the Fae across the entirety of Adraveth. Soaked and shivering, several lent their voices to support the right of the Fae to exist. The last Sylph, though righteous in his anger, listened to all for and against the Fae.
The Sylph thought long and hard as those around him spoke or remained silent. Eventually he made a decision: the balance of power would be restored to the Fae of both light and dark, and the war would cease. The Fae would be given one last chance.
Given clarity by what was the equivalent of a god themselves coming to them and telling them to stop, the fighting nearly stopped overnight. (In addition to the fact that superior innate strength was no longer an advantage that the Dark Fae held.). In addition, Trolls seemed to have the curse over their forms lifted.
Since then, nearly all Fae have retreated to the Fae Realm to rebuild their homes and realm. Some are still remaining in Adraveth, having built lives or made friends there. The future is unknown, but one thing is certain: The horrors of the Fae War seem to have finally come to an end.

The Winter has been a bitter cold one so far, and as the year turned, the Oracle named it “The Year of the Prism.” Many have begun to speculate upon just what this might mean.
In the northern wastes, the elemental city of Straloset has been housing and taking in those northern tribes that were displaced during the city’s arrival. Were it not for the efforts and advice of several tribesmen hailing from the New Calendale area that Straloset delegates met with (and the subsequent spreading of the message to their kin), many would have frozen to death without proper shelter over the winter.
The Shavali within the city of Straloset have ceased any and all fighting with the tribesmen, although the tribesmen still look upon them with anger.
The sickness that was spreading virulently when the city first arrived seems to have stopped its spread. Those who weren’t killed by the sickness ended up with odd quirks and symptoms of their infection. Unfortunately, no cure has been found to remove their strange symptoms, although the Church of Attalia and The Scarlet Scarves are investigating the situation in earnest.
Larigmoore continues to heal its wounds after the war. Solinaria has proven to be earnest in its promise to assist in the healing and rebuilding process.
King Leopold’s physical condition has not improved. The rumors of the Leopold’s tendency to remain in the Dream Realm for extended periods of time has turned out to be true, and the newly established Order of the Sleepwalkers continues to guard his presence in the Dream Realm and this one. He has embraced the title that he’s heard others use when referring to him: “The Sleeping King.”
