Updates for the years 1013 and 1014 AC: Since the Isle of Dawn Treaty has been put in effect, all Thyatian officials and troops have been removed from the isle (they were either sent to Aegos or back to mainland Thyatis). The capital of Paganica has since been a ghost town, as has been Rainbow Park.
After the departure of the Thyatians, the petty barons that had been granted dominions by Eusebius have fought over the land, trying to become the undisputed rulers of the whole isle. Intrigues, plots, assassinations, wars, alliances, betrayals are all common. Trade is nearly nonexistent, and famine is also feared because crops have been destroyed in many places. The country is in a complete state of chaos and anarchy, but Thyatis and the NACE don't want to intervene and break the treaty for such an unimportant land. Ne'er-do-well's thieves, however, may find that the isle suits their needs, and may help a baron of their choice by smuggling weapons for him, in exchange for the right to use the isle as another haven for their piratical activities.
