Last Year's Events: The Thyatians established the Barony of Canium on the Isle of the Dogs, in order to expand their influence, mostly through economic dominance, in the Norwold region. The barony successfully repelled an attack by Ersenbal, and its presence was acknowledged by the Heldannic Knights and Alpha, and by the petty dominions near Oceansend. The barony began a process of establishing trade agreements with several regional dominions, small and large, and of influencing others.
