- Winter's Stirring: First contact after the war is made with Lancereaux. Survivors are found, rallied under the banner of Valentine Delacroix, reportedly a surviving daughter of Count Adhemar Delacroix, who proclaim themselves independent from the Alliance.
- High Winter: First contact after the war is made with Ibarran. The western coast appears to have been occupied by Sahradian goblins.
- High Budding: An expedition to Fordheim is successful; reports indicate the old capital has been overrun by Yotunaar and the Fringe.
- New Sun: The vanguard of an invasion by Queen Valentine's Lancesian forces is repulsed at the fortress of Wolfsgart.
- High Sun: The first sighting of a Legion soldier since the Fall brings the Order of the White Aegis from the frontier to destroy it. With the possibility of the resurgence of the Legion threat and the ineffective rulership of the Advisory Council, they enforce their authority to act outside of the Treaty of Carnthor and assume control of Andermark and the Alliance. King Constantin is placed under house arrest.
- Harvest's End: Lord Brynmor, adviser to Lord Loghlin, is arrested and executed on charges of treason against the Alliance. Lord Loghlin goes into seclusion soon after.
- Winter's Stirring: The town of Vierhaven is struck by a virulent plague. Governor Orthoria leads the endeavours of the elves, immune to the illness, to help until the plague is lifted. Rumours stir of divine intervention having saved Vierhaven from a demonic plot, and the involvement of a Godtouched figure.
- High Winter: Queen Valentine's armies, against all odds, march on Andermark from the east, through hundreds of miles of woodlands thought to be Fringetouched. The forces of the White Aegis, Andermark, Damryn, and Theroux's Lancesian loyalists rally to defend the kingdom. Princess Melanie goes missing in what is assumed to be a Lancesian plot.
- New Budding: King Constantin murders a Marshal of the White Aegis and flees Starkholm. Princess Melanie is later found not in the hands of the Lancesians, but in his company. Reports indicate the King had lost his senses and attacked his own daughter, and only by the presence of Ascher's Outriders was she saved - but at the price of King Constantin's life. Melanie ascended to the throne of Andermark as Queen Melanie I. Lord Loghlin, in the face of the White Aegis' continued rulership of Andermark, calls for a Kingsmoot to settle the matter of ruling the Alliance.
- High Budding: The Kingsmoot of the Alliance of Carnthor is held in the Palace of Starkholm. Lord Loghlin, the Duke of Geitrim and heir presumptive to the throne of Caer Brennan, assumes the mantle of High King of the Realm of Man.
- High Sun: King Loghlin's expedition to reclaim Damryn departs, making contact with the dwarves of Kordurren.
- Harvest's End: The expedition to Damryn is delayed due to foul weather condition in the Kordurren Mountains.
- Winter's Stirring: First contact is made with survivors of Damryn, inhabitants of an isolated village beset by demonic forces.
- Winter's End: Caer Brennan rediscovered by King Loghlin's expedition. High King Riagon found to be alive, Caer Brennan and the surrounding regions inhabited and prosperous - but beset by demons and apparently rejecting of faith in the Gods.
- New Budding: High King Loghlin and High King Riagon meet in Caer Brennan. King Loghlin rejects legitimacy and rulership of King Riagon due to heretical abandonment of the faith. Expedition travels south.
- High Budding: High King Loghlin's expedition returns to Andermark by ley-vault. Outriders granted the castle named Ashenheart Rise on the Damryan-Lancesian border, and reformed under High King Loghlin's command as the Kingsriders.
