- Around this time, the mortal Iomedae joins the Shining Crusade to aid in the struggle against the forces of the Whispering Tyrant.
- Queen Harcatha of Irrisen decides to lower her citizen's taxes by a third, believing that the country's high taxes had been interfering with its economic development. When she later hears that her people have given her the nickname "Harcatha the Kind", she orders her soldiers to cut off the little fingers of the youngest child of every family. Even though she loses her nickname because of this, taxes stay at their lower level.
