Syka Calendar Of Events Spring 517 A.V.

✨Spring 517 Calendar✨



Spring in Syka is really no different than any other season other than the fact that storms roll in from the Suvan more often. Year round, Syka enjoys mostly the same temperature from the high 70's to the low 90's. The mild weather turns slightly warmer and everything begins to flower that wasn't already in flower throughout the jungle. Insect activity is on the rise. The sea seems busy with its interaction with the land in the forms of turtles coming ashore to mate and lay eggs as well as crabs and other creatures the settlement doesn't seem to see that often.

The Veronica will find herself making three trips this season. Her turn around is about twenty days so if individuals have orders for needed items they can make them at the mercantile (use a singular post) and collect them on the dates The Veronica returns. On her first turn around, the Veronica brings the completed saw mill and all its parts the founders had ordered from the mainland. All the citizens of Syka must do is set it up and find someone to run it. A supervisor from the company that made the saw mill will also be along to help to set up the final equipment and do a test run of the facility after its built. This man or woman should arrive on the fourth Veronica turn around.

As the ship comes and goes, new visitors will join Syka and some of the original settlers will have vanished or perished. Such is life. Enjoy it in paradise where things can be beautiful and deadly all at once. Mathias brings in a healer, and the bar The Tidepool sees an extensive expansion.

The new healer, an Akalak, immediately begins to put together a medical clinic since that was what Mathias talked him into doing. He recruits the denizens to help him with the building and when he finds out the saw mill Jansen and his brother will assist with that project as well.

Syka is growing, slowly but surely, and as people come in the city gets stronger and more and more of its mysteries slowly are uncovered.
