| This Year In|
- Naioba 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.
- Siege of Doissetep. While its leaders are engaged in their own internal struggles, Don Terro Gonzaga of Aragon and Duc Francis Nevers of Languedoc (both of the Order of Reason) attack Doissetep. After a long battle, its Earthly aspect falls. During the fight, Hermetic magi (including a young Porthos Fitz-Empress) shift the main keep into the Otherworlds (specifically, the Shard Realm of Forces). Cheated of their prize, Daedaleans massacre everyone left behind. The attack signals the true onset of Fall for mystic paradigms, and the first time the Order of Hermes realize they're facing a new threat.
