    Rosscot Nouverre, a Dhalmanite explorer, was founded by her government to set a camp on an uninhabited area of the southern islands to gather information, resources, and hopefully expand the Dhalmanite control through the archipelago.   Rosscot set out south on 18th of Harvesting of 2981 E.Alz leading a team of 54 people and 18 alzufhar to set up a camp in the north area of the closest island.   The camp operated for two years bringing important information and resources back to Dhalmain, but then suddenly stopped communicating, and all attempts to reach them ended with the sailors never being seen again.

    The epidemy of blackout affected the populations of Stunveldt and Ruh greatly during the years of 3000 to 3002 E.Alz.   In Reaping 23rd, 3004 E.Alz, the plant thorn child was found to be useful in the making of a medicinal beverage against it, which stopped the disease and its spread almost instantly, controlling the spread of it and giving the epidemy an end.
    This cure has, however, a small chance of producing thorns, a short term disease characterized by a blind rage. No cure or preventive measures have been found against thorns, though the creation of thorn cells have helped the control and treatment of the affected people.

    The last death of the High Rust
    Life, Death

    On this day a 35 year old Kartian farmer called Kej died of Rust becoming the last casualty of the The High Rust.   The Kingdom of Karte received a very low impact of the High Rust due to having most of its population on plains and close to coasts, but the unfortunate farmer lived close to the mountains and took his livestock to graze upstream.
    He was slowly affected and by the point he stopped going up the mountains it was too late, as he died due to complications of the organs that were already affected by thr rust.

    Second edition of the Book of Habits and Beasts
    Cultural event

    Veld and their team started working on the new compilation of the Books of Habits and Beasts around 3012 E.Alz.   As the High Rust hit the archipelago and impacted most things in it, it required intense updating and rewriting for a team that was as hit by the consequences of the High Rust as anybody else.   Though many of the collaborators and consulted professionals were lost to the rust, Veld and their closer circle considered the situation to require a second edition even more urgently, as many were using the periodic magazines to get accurate information on the situation of other islands, and sending their own news to Veld's team to research on.   In an incommensurate team effort, the second edition of The Book of the Habits and Beasts was released on 03/03/03 of the new Era of Rust, and the team continued ever since writing, updating and researching, preparing for a widely requested 3rd edition.

    As the second edition of the book was a work focused on gathering the most comprehensive information possible on the Rust and its effects and to make it available as quickly as possible, many on the team felt it to be a rushed work. Immediately after release, they focused on polishing the encyclopaedia and revamping the design, making it a more enjoyable and attractive read. Other areas of the encyclopaedia were reworked on their entirety, such as its timelines.
    Welkinal prominently reworked the zoology articles and polished the artworks, bringing both astounding reference pictures and decorative illustrations. Their advertising pamphlet was reworked in time for the release of the brand new edition.
