Last Year's Events: Foresthome helped Arkan defend itself against Stonewall, until it became clear to Queen Kikania that it was a lost cause. Thus she negotiated her withdrawal from the conflict, in exchange for control of the town of Arreghi. Foresthome started a bold project of canal-building to link its major waterways, notably its great lakes, including Crystal Lake to which it has gained an improved access.
