6 Month Summary through Sarenith 4716
1,200pp kingdom wages for each of us. This is much higher than usual. I withdrew more BP during 2 KTs because our treasury is overflowing and I was about to build a bunch of Unrest-reducing buildings.

Abadius, 4716. The Greenmark takes advantage of an unusually mild winter to explore and trade. The Circle of the Acorn claims the remaining southern marches of the Greenmark. We encounter the giant Munguk, who joins our army for the promise of dwarven liquor.
     Greenmark renews its luxuries trade route with Absalom. From Absalom, merchants trade our dwarven single-malt whisky, juniper mead, fine fur garments, mirrors, and magic items throughout the world.

Calistril-Pharast, 4716. Construction begins on Shrikethorn's Artisan District. A local council of arts patrons, backed by the Doss bards, requests that we build an opera house in the Green District. One of the patrons offers to donate her noble villa to the cause. It is converted to the Greenmark Opera House.
     Issa grants patents of nobility, with accompanying grants of land and gold, to several members of the Circle of the Acorn and their allies:

Greyfeather, Patriarch of the Greenmark and Lord of the Temple of the Elk
Ganelin, Palsgrave of Candlemere
Corax, Margravine of Heathwick and Constable of the Realm
Bede, Lord Marshal of the Realm
Fang, Lord Sheriff of the Realm
Kesten, Lord Captain of the Realm
Oleg and Svetlana, Margrave and Margravine of Leveton
Galrin, Margrave of Trollgrad

Gozran, 4716. Continued research results in the amazing discovery of _____!
     Greenmark renews its raw materials trade route with Cassomir. Grenish barges laden with timber and ores ply the Sellen southward.

Desnus-Sarenith, 4716.
A coalition of zealots in Shrikethorn plots both openly and covertly for the ouster of poor Minister Kini! "She's been minding the fey too much, and the people not enough!" they say. The Queen shames them into submission while Ganelin and Corax hunt for the instigators, but popular sentiment still runs against the Minister.

8 Month Summary through Kuthona 4715
400pp kingdom wages for each of us.

Desnus-Sarenith, 4715. The Grenish War of Independence. Issa is crowned Queen.

Erastus, 4715. Troll warbands raid the southern marches of the Greenmark. With great sacrifice, the Queen wins a pyrrhic victory against the trolls. The Circle of the Acorn tracks the trolls' leader, Hargulka, to an old dwarven hold, from whence the Green Lady sent him to pillage the realm.
     Greenmark continues its trade in beef, moon radishes, and other foodstuffs to Caliphas, though growing demand among our own populace may soon limit our ability to export food.

Arodus, 4715. A huge owlbear attacks Shrikethorn, breaching the western walls and destroying several building in the Hammer District before being driven back by the dwarves. The Circle of the Acorn tracks the owlbear back to its lair beyond the Little Sellen. A gang of cutthroats had been using a magic ring to send the owlbear against us. I suspect the ring to have been made of the hair of the Green Lady. We captured the owlbear and constructed a menagerie in the new Green District to house it.
     Our depleted armies reconstitute and train new recruits.

Rova, 4715. Following the recent troll and owlbear raids, the brave Tanyons veterans of the Grenish War of Independence request permission to build a fort to protect their homesteads. The Queen appoints a new Marshal, Kini, to oversee construction.

Lamashan, 4715. Construction of Fort Tanyons is complete. Greenmark renews its arms export agreement with the rebel government in Tamran, Nirmathas. Fine Grenish steel remains in high demand throughout Avistan and beyond.

Neth, 4715. Olomanteion researchers make a breakthrough discovery about the First World!

Kuthona, 4715. Construction on a new military garrison district, the Spears District, begins in Shrikethorn.

6 Month Summary through Gozran 4715
300pp kingdom wages for each of us.

Neth, 4714. Although the cult of Gyronna was ferreted out earlier this year, hag's eye graffiti is found on buildings in Shrikethorn. Investigations by the city watch find that the culprits are merely unruly teenagers who painted the symbol with no knowledge of what it represents.
     The keelboats Crackjaw and Tatzlwyrm are christened at the Shrikethorn shipyard.

Kuthona, 4714. Greenmark begins negotiations toward a military alliance with Restov and Mivon.
     A castle is built on the cliffs above the Temple of the Elk.

Abadius, 4715. Jhod Kavken, priest of Erastil, is discovered to have stolen money from the treasury while in office. Investigation by the Circle of the Acorn reveals that Jhod was being blackmailed by someone from his past. The Margravine sentenced Jhod to penance at the Temple of the Elk. The blackmailer will never be heard from again. Dwarven merchant Galrin Copperglove is appointed treasurer.
     Greenmark allies with House Medvyed.
     The keelboats Fossegrim and Manticore are christened at the Shrikethorn shipyard.

Calistril, 4715. The Greenmark formally allies with Brevic houses Orlovsky and Garess. Maegar Varn invites the Margravine and her retinue to a feast in his capital.

Pharast, 4715. Greenmark completes the alliance with Restov and Mivon, reuniting the estranged houses of the Swordlords.

Gozran, 4715. Mineral Consortium resentment over the selection of Galrin Copperglove to the post of Treasurer bubbles to the surface in a chain of ugly social scenes. The Margravine summons Galrin and the Guildmaster of the Consortium to the Emerald Palace to sort it out. She points out Galrin's mercantile experience. He acknowledges the Consortium's superior expertise at mining (shocking, coming from a dwarf). Egos soothed, the status quo is maintained.
     The airship Tempest is christened in the skies above Candlemere.
     The Circle of the Acorn, accompanied by Ollamh Geirmund, attend Maegar Varn's feast at Varnhold. Representatives of the Swordlords and the houses of Brevoy also attend, including Noleski Surtova's sister, Natala.

Desnus 4714. The Dancing Lady reveals that during Issa's missing decade, she was kidnapped by an Eldest of the First World. The Margravine debates what fate should await the bloodthirsty fey; Ganelin makes the problem go away. Political calm descends on the Greenmark--but it is the calm before a storm. We seize the opportunity to establish embassies with Brevic houses Orlovsky and Garess, who, along with our allies in House Medvyed, are most likely to form a bloc against Surtova.

Sarenith 4714. New settlements spring up in Heathwick and Aurochs Canyon, markets for grain farmers and aurochs ranchers, respectively. The dwarves of Clan Copperglove continue to fortify Shrikethorn's Hammer District and gather a unit of elite ultraheavy infantry dubbed the Bronze Phalanx.

Erastus-Rova 4714. We renew our agreement to export Grenish grain and livestock to Caliphas, capital of Ustalav. Fisheries along the Tuskwater and its tributary rivers augment our farms and ranches. We raise castles and other fortifications to protect the outlying settlements in Heathwick, Aurochs Canyon, and Candlemere.

Lamashan 4714. A wilderness fort in Trappingrounds hides under the eaves of Narlmarch Wood. Under Captain Dorley, the alchemists of Candlemere establish their own guildhall and recruit additional grenadiers. Envoys establish an embassy in neighboring Mivon and renew arms exports to Nirmathas.
