Event 1 2022
May 12 - 15
The Grand Conjunction is upon us once again. Every 7 years the three main Spheres align and it is the actions of the population that will influence which Sphere will dominate for the next 7 years. Will the Evil sphere once again become dominant or will the Neutral or Good Sphere replace it. Should the Evil Sphere become dominant for a third successive time then the world of Orin Rakatha will forever be the playground of it’s evil aligned inhabitants. It is also a time of great change. The Mystics have chosen the time of the Grand Conjunction to influence Orin Rakatha and it’s people but what have they in mind? They made this world and they can do with it as they wish but what does that mean for the people of Orin Rakatha. Only time will tell!
Event 2 2022
July 7 - 10
And so the Mystics have decreed.
All nations have but a short time to gather their belongings before they are declared homeless. Where on Orin Rakatha will they now choose to live, if they choose to remain here at all.
Will they choose a land rich in a particular resource, or a land with a node that closely aligns to their own.
Will they choose a land next to those they consider allies or those they consider enemies. They have but a relatively short time to decide.
With the change in format for the summer Fayre which factions will provide entertainment for their neighbours and earn the Favour of the Mystics and who will win those events.
What of the Celtois ? They are here to ensure the Evil sphere takes dominance and are starting to appear en mass, but where will they strike. It is clear they are attempting to destroy those nodes aligned for good, but which one will be first.
The dark sorceress Skathatch, leader of the Celtois on Orin Rakatha, has yet to make her appearance but it is known she carries with her an artifact of great evil. What form does this take ? If it is allowed to exist it would greatly aid in the domination of the Evil Sphere
Time will answer these questions, as time always does, but what impact will those who call Orin Rakaktha home have on the months to come ?
Event 3 2022
September 8 - 11
So the node of Battle is safe, its destruction at the hands of Skathatch prevented by the nation’s unity.
As the battle-weary adventurers begin packing for the long walk back to their peoples, word filters through that Skathatch is still encamped close by and even now is reinforcing the Celtois numbers.
Of course! The node of Knowledge, also aligned to the Good Sphere, can also be found in this area.
She must be preparing for an attack on this node.
The node of Knowledge must be found, must be defended (or Skathatch aided depending on your nation’s preference).
Can she be beaten once again and this time removed from Orin Rakatha, or will she succeed in her quest and steer Orin Rakatha even closer to the Evil sphere?
What of the Shatttered? Were they responsible for bringing the Greater Hepath onto Orin Rakatha or was it a coincidence they were in the area at the time? They made mention of The Ritual of Artak but what is it? And why are they so sure that “the end is near”?
Finally, who are these people who wander in a dream-like trance, who fall asleep where they stand? Is this linked to either of the other occurrences or is this something else the nations will need to investigate?
Event 1 2023
The Time of reckoning
Following a long period of unrest and uncertainty upon Orin Rakatha, the Shadowsrise have finally declared a Time of Reckoning to be held. This is the last opportunity for nations to make their claim for lands, both old and new. One of the Oracles of the Mystics will be present to take the nations pledges. Who will make their claim, and who may be lost?
And what of those nations who haven’t chosen a land to settle? Let it be said they were warned… With the Mystics once again releasing the Mistweavers into the world, foolish are those who believe they can resist their will.
So much was left without end as winter drew in… The increase in Hepath activity is of great concern but what of the Ritual of Artak? Why hasn’t it been re-built?
The Celtois have now settled on Orin Rakatha but what are their plans for the coming warmer seasons? Do they intend to continue their wanton destruction of all that is good on Orin Rakatha or are they simply happy to have found a home?
The “Dreamers” are still abroad. Often have they been found wandering the lands but why? And how have they come to be in this state?
How do the nations now gather sufficient resources to allow them to create and empower? Will the Order of the Crystal honour it’s agreements and help the Nations recover the resources from their lands?
Event 2 2023
A new day
As the dust settles following the events of the Time of Reckoning, nations must adjust to their homes – new or old. This meeting provides opportunity to rebuild alliances or confront new enemies. However the shadow of a threat has begun to creep its fingers across the land.
The spectre of plague stalks across these new lands, and the newly formed Spiritualists call for aid from all of the nations in combating this mysterious new threat.
Behind all of this still lies the mystery of the unknown traveller and his so-called Heralds.
Event 3 2023
The Rising Tide
With many nations still adjusting to their new environment, the rise in attacks on various nations has been most troublesome. This last meeting of the year may provide an opportunity for nations to discuss their problems and seek aid from others. Perhaps even to notice the ever creeping shadow…
The attacks continue and whilst the disease that spread through the populous has faded, it has not vanished completely. A new concern has drawn attention though. The rising tide of magic brought to the lands by the wizards has begun to destabilise. The current anchor, Professor Carsus, is becoming weaker with each passing moment. What will be done to save magic upon this land?
