| This Year In|
- Mistridge attendees scatter. Nightshade journeys alone to the Americas through the Paths of the Wyck. Sh'zar, Valoran, and Baldric La Salle spread word from northern Europe to Middle East to Asia.
- Seeking the cause of the plagues, shamanness Naioba (daughter of Kola'a Ti) stalks the white ghost through the Mo-Mo Keu dreamlands. There she encounters Star-of-Eagles. Both are nearly slain by the white dream-ghost. Later, she meets Sh'zar and Ali-beh-shaar; seeking an end to plague, she decides to join their Convocation. With her father's help, she strikes a truce between Madzimbabwe, Ngoma and other sects.
- Portuguese voyages to the western coast of Africa reintroduce the slave trade to Europe.
