History of Fillimet
Attacked by several warships in an effort to drive her from the seas, Grayce Kallako directed her crew to flee into the deep ocean. A sudden, fierce storm arose on the previously calm waters, decimating the pursuing ships until only one remained. The storm calmed as quickly as it had started, leaving the surviving ship to comb the wreckage of the ocean for survivors. Kallako and her ship, the Blackguard, were never seen again, leading officials to list their ship and its crew among the casualties of the storm.
Dahlia Povi declares a quest for the secret retreat of the Heathen Prophet, providing information on its existence and clues to its whereabouts by sharing a letter to the Heathen Prophet from his Aunt Moria. The Heathen Church once again became a popular subject in everyday conversation.
When a possible historical location for Sarkav Borskalux's remote retreat was discovered within the Nomuran Forest the Church was quick to name their quest a success and declare the site holy. A red chapel was built at the remote location and the faithful were encouraged to visit the site to seek the Prophet's blessings and assistance. Church participation surged, as did donations to the chapel's upkeep. A booming tourism grew to support the pilgrims traveling to the site, eventually resulting in a town christened Red Chapel after the small building at its center.
The Church of the Heathen Prophet constructed an annex on their religious site at Red Chapel to house the top Church administration and declared Red Chapel the center of the Church of the Heathen Prophet. Through persuasion of key officials throughout the area Chief Speaker Dahlia Povi also affected the renaming of the Nomuran Forest to the Prophet's Woods, further raising the profile of the Heathen Prophet and his Church. Thus began the true expansion of the Church throughout the Prophet's Woods.
The Cold Stone was invented in Khalembra. Refrigeration was no longer limited to Elementalists but was no available to the masses. Eventually the Runework would be improved upon to allow for the weaker but much smaller Circulators used today to provide household temperature control.
Due to the Domesticated Horse's innate unease traveling through portals the Portal Exchange supported multiple breeding programs to develop a docile animal willing to perform frequent Portal Travel with passengers or pulling carts.

King Durkot II inherited the throne to a divided kingdom, torn apart by the hazards of travel due to threats outside his kingdom's control.

In an effort to obtain access to her rumored collection of tomes on Ancient Magic, Paitr Goldaming submitted himself to Xaladreth's courtship challenges. The seasoned dragon was intrigued by the human who not only dared attempt her feats but actually completed them, and selected him as one of her mates after naming him Dragonkin.
Xaladreth taught Paitr Goldaming her own book preservation spells, advanced techniques which earned Paitr an honored place with the Fillimet Magical Archives and their full assistance in attempting to decipher the ancient languages of the Ancient Magic tomes.
Paitr and Xaladreth's pairing lasted three years before Xaladreth grew tired of the taxations levied against her by the Goldaming Family and broke off the official relationship. As is the custom of most Soulfire pairings the break was amicable and the two kept in touch, sharing knowledge with the other's offspring as is customary.
Explorers to Jyllaru Island discovered a cave full of dragon bones when seeking shelter for the night. The Society of Scientific Exploration and Discovery sent additional expeditions, discovering many other large natural cave systems full of bones as well as signs the caves were once inhabited by the now-absent dragons.
An expedition led by Rolph Duval attempted to speak with the dead dragons at the Jyllaru Bone Caves and use Necromancy to obtain this information directly from one of the dragons. Their bodies were found by a later expedition, faces frozen in pain and fear. Attempts to recover their charred remains resulted in their bodies crumbling to ash and dust.
Once a picturesque island known for its bustling seaports and wool exports, Kogal Island was slowly poisoned due to secret practice of Vitriol Magic at Farscale Tower. Once the trees around the tower began to show their corruption it was too late, despite the best efforts of the island's inhabitants. Many managed to flee to the nearby Bramblewood Isle while others escaped to the larger Martoka Island before the darkness completely consumed Kogal in an event now known as The Calamity. The fate of those who remained behind is unknown.
Grungnat's Garbage Disposal was co-founded by Bob and Grungnat, two best friends seeking to revolutionize waste management. Bob wished to prove to the world, his family, and himself that goblins could become successful without retaining clutter. Grungnat was mainly seeking something to assuage his own self-doubt and determined helping his friend achieve a dream would be a good place to start. Bob named the company after Grungnat as thanks for his unfailing support towards his dream.
The Refuse War was an aggressive interplanar one-day war between the plane of Jannada and the once-thriving city of Freeport. The war could have been entirely avoided had Freeport performed their due diligence prior to awarding their trash collection contract to Grungnat's Garbage Disposal.
The Kogal Taskforce was founded through an agreement between the Goldaming Family and the Society of Scientific Exploration and Discovery, in an effort to uncover the full history of the event and hopefully also a cure for the Calamity.
Upon gaining full political control of the Northern Reach the Church of the Heathen Prophet officially declared Red Chapel as the new capital, elevating the religious backwater city into the political powerhouse of the entire territory.
When a small group of adolescents discovered that Frost Fae in the Lonely Peaks were responsible for the raging wildlife attacking the cities of Arcturia for the last two centuries King Durkot Stormwild IV gained the opportunity to end the War of Generations. He prepared to mount a military attack upon the previously unknown species but Kalia Furstek, after much convincing from the teens, in turn pushed the king to negotiate a peaceful resolution with the fae.
Upon the abrupt end of the War of Generations and the sudden return of safe travel King Durkot Stormwild IV began considering another restructurings of the government, this time retaining democratic elections but returning to a centralized power. With additional assistance from Kalia Furstek he convinced the eight remaining Arcturian cities to send delegates from their own local councils to serve on a national Council.
