Last Year's Events: Notrion was seriously hit by the economic troubles that spread inside Nayce. The kingdom was on the verge of bankruptcy, and the market for grain (Notrion's main industry) was not showing any sign of improvement. The disputes with Veroth, and the loss of land to the newfound kingdom, only worsened an already blight situation. There seemed to be no end in sight to the downward spiral.
