In the wake of the Wind Tower flaring green, the oppressive wind and rain covering the city and surroundings of Wind Reach slowly fades, leaving clear skies and pleasant, mild weather that persists for the rest of the season. The fallen rain does not abate immediately and much of the lower elevation areas outside of the city remain flooded for a time. The Sanikas River has become a raging rapid that has overflown and swamped the Sanikas Road, making traversal difficult until the waters subside near the middle of the season. The rains of the previous season have served to enrich the surrounding environment, and animals and plants return with fervor. The surrounding mountains bloom with life and even the least religious among the Inarta offer grudging praise to Zulrav. Despite damage the storms caused, it's undeniable that the land now prospers. The weakest of the Inarta have starved, leaving food for the strong, and the storms have washed away the dead growth that has persisted through last summer into the sea. The people of Wind Reach who have survived can now look towards the future with brighter eyes. As if in celebration of the end of the brutal Winter, three Wind Eagle chicks hatch, one after the other. This sends a frenzy of competition through the Yasi, with all of them struggling to catch the chicks’ eyes.

However, even as the land prospers under the brutal rain of the previous season, it's undeniable that the mountains still suffer from Winter's absence. The most notable effect is seen in the great mountain of Skyinarta herself. The mountain trembles and quivers as the pressure of the lava within her builds. The rains of the previous season tempered the volcano’s rage, but with clear skies and an absence of snow cooling her depths, Wind Reach suffers from frequent quakes and untimely eruptions of lava. The reimancers of the city band together to work on solutions to the problem, but a growing unease still lingers. Until Winter finds its way back to Mizahar the situation will only grow more grave with each passing season, and any solutions found are only bandages on a deepening abscess.

Several days after the storm passes, the group of missing Endal believed to have been lost the previous season return, minus one member. Their return is heralded joyously, but the haggard and beaten group speak in hushed tones when telling their tale to the Valintar. They claim to have been willfully stalked by a flying beast in the wilds, though they are able to offer no description of it as it only struck during the darkest and most terrible parts of the storm. According to them, the monster killed and disappeared with both an eagle and its rider, then vanished when the storm passed. The Valintar immediately orders all hunters to keep an eye out for the monster. Several of the Flights organize scouting missions and hunts in an attempt to find and slay the beast. And all residents of Wind Reach, regardless of caste, keep a wary eye on the sky.


Weather and Wildlife

1st-20th - Mere days after the end of the storm, flowers bloom and wildlife emerges from hiding to feed and give birth to their young. The majority of the animals seen are various types of deer, goats, and wild sheep, but the rare Sky Wolves are heard in the mountains surrounding the city. The weather is excessively pleasant during this time, with mild temperatures and only the rare showers. The Sanikas River continues to flood during this time, making the Sanikas Road impassable. For the moment, the mountain remains quiet.

21st-40th - The weather remains pleasant, but the mountain begins to grumble. Animals are easily spooked by the rumbles and more wary than usual, and a few small landslides block roads and must be cleared by Dek.

41st- 70th - The earthquakes grow more intense, and the reimancers begin enacting plans to keep the mountain in order. By this point the flooding of the Sanikas Road has abated and is technically traversable, but the quakes coming off the mountain send small landslides to cover the road from time to time and keep the Dek busy. The winds are heavy during this time, but not enough to hinder Wind Eagle flight.

70th-91st - Heavy rains quiet the mountain somewhat, though these rains are nowhere the intensity of the previous season. The flooding has gone down by now, and the reimancers are given more time to work on solutions for the trembling mountain.

??? - The beast lurks...somewhere.

Events

1: Market Day - The first market day of Spring is celebrated in decorations of pastel pinks, greens and blues.

Even the Wind Eagles join into the celebration.
