From every corner of the realm, shamans and farmers, diviners and hunters are saying the same thing. Colddays will be long, hard, and if the realm does not prepare... deadly.

Prices of foodstuff and supplies has already started to skyrocket as cities buy up extras and begin to stock pile. But will it be enough?

The people are not impressed. The colddays always come, the snows always come, and the Aurilites aren't making demands and the coming season hasnt been effected with magic...

But there is something in the air...

The harvests have begun, and the farmers are overjoyed. Every shipment, every wagon load, and every spare scrap has been purchased by the powers that be.

It may well be a hard winter, but it seems that because of the warning, everyone will be well stocked for it.

As the first snow falls the people rest, knowing they are safe and secure.. Until..

In the early evening, the soldiers watching the walls in Tonovi rang an alarm. A horde of rats descending from the north. Within an hour the entire city is a battle field as rats destroy and eat everything in sight. Adventurers arrived to help, but it was a pitched battle.

While the rats have been cleared from the city, a great number more were seen heading south through the wilderness..

The rampage of vermin continues, now wiping out Shadow and Tharis of foodstuffs. Swift action from adventurers and standing armies has avoided the loss of life seen in Tonovi, but could not save the stores.

With people desperate for any food, cities not effected by the rats are now flooded with refugees and dangerously hungry people. The temples cannot keep up with the demand for more divine methods of feeding the people, and still the horde of rats is out there...

This looks interesting Smile Also, if you (or any other Imm) has plot type stuff you'd like to include in the login news, let me know. I'll be happy to add it.

The constant food shortages have prompted riots across all cities. While temples try to provide, the sheer amount of people to be fed can't keep up. People are dying and only a select few are seen as saviors.

There were rumors of a convoy of galleons, cutting the coast and waiting.. the last of the food, safe from the rats.. and now, a notice has been posted in Tharis:

To the citizens of Tharis! Of every race, age, sex and creed! Rejoice for
House Rilynath, with the equal aid of Temple of Tempus, has purchased
enough food to provide for all citizens, humans and elves alike through
this famine! Hail House Rilynath! Hail Tempus!

Signed, Verbannon of Tempus

Because of Spring did this plot just become obsolete?

I would assume there would still be some shortages on food til the major harvests (usually summer/autumn). Some seasonal foodstuffs may be available in spring to make matters less dire, but the main crops are later in the year. And who knows... the rats that ate all the grain may have eaten the seed for the year's crops as well. I'd check in for final word from Loki, just don't assume the realm is back on track just yet Smile

While the rats have fled or died.. the cause of them still unknown, the grip of winter has left the realm and food shipments are slowly coming from other regions..

While the ramifications of this event are still being felt both politically and spiritually and the echos of it will spread into other events, without the rats, or the investigation into who brought them, the famine is done.
