Last Year's Events: The Milenian Empire was the site of protests following the various events that rocked it recently, including the Zargosian resurgence, the disappearance of the Red Sun, or the scandal with the Midwives. The Merry Pirates used this instability to prey upon the empire's rich cities. Thanks to the intervention of an oracle, the Milenians gained clues to the existence of Lothar from captured Heldannic Knights, before the prisoners escaped.
