    Discharging the Kirinal Pit
    Metaphysical / Paranormal event

    The first attempt by the Archmage Chagroth Durinhelm to tame the chaos and wild magic surging out of the Kirinal Pit. The necromancer Dolgathan interrupted the ritual, drawing off a portion of the wild magic to empower a kaiju zombie made from the Dead of Kirinal. As the Lords of Greystone fought the Dead he used the distraction to accomplish his real goal, his transformation into a dracolich.   In the end, after the Dead were put back to rest and the new dracolich driven off, the ritual succeeded, stabilizing the Pit, for a time.

    The Kirinal Explosion
    Disaster / Destruction

    Five years into the War Against the Far Realm, the forces of Erathia suffered their worst defeat. Multiple planar breaches opened simultaneously in the Kirinal Pit, causing a massive explosion that destroyed the fortresses on it's rim an widening it from 20 miles to 30 miles.   All magic in the world failed for 24 hours, the Day of Dispelling. All portals closed. Wards and enchantments everywhere, some that had stood for millenia, ended. When magic came back, the portals reopened and the hordes and armies from many worlds poured out.   Internal fighting amongst the invading forces gave the defenders of Erathia enough time to organize a defense and form a new line.

    Founding of the Embassy Cities
    Construction beginning/end

    Eight cities were established five miles away from each of the eight fortresses around the Kirinal Pit. They served the needs of the soldiers in the fortresses, bringing in food and providing a fallback position when the Pit Wall and the Fortresses were overrun.

    For decades after their establishment, the "Embassy Cities" were seen as a death trap and assignment there was a punishment. Once the Orrery of Worlds began functioning, that changed.

    Naraky's Second Egg
    Religious event

    The god Naraky repeated his very first trick, Naraky's First Egg.   He exchanged the unborn abomination inside the world with the contents of a hen's egg and lured the Elder Gods of the Far Realm away from the world.   Naraky tricked the Elder Gods into thinking that a hen's egg was the world egg. When they marched on the hen's egg, the gods closed off the world to all deities.   Both stories are true.

    The Gods Withdraw
    Religious event

    The gods left the mortal realm, dragging the Great Old Ones along with them. They locked the world of Erathia behind a Divine Gate. No being with the power of a god may abide in the mortal world. The power of the Gate draws them into the Outer Planes where they belong.

    Signing of "The Hell Week Accord"
    Political event

    The High Table of the Bulwark of Light presents the other Concordance for Survival members with the "Hell Week Accords."

    They propose "Hell Week", a negotiated week expanding the alliance with the Nine Hells. If the Kirinal Pit manifests with the Nine Hells for a week, the chances of inimical planes manifesting on Shatter could be reduced to almost zero.
