From ThornsWiki

Welcome to Rainy Season 2720!


The Rainy Season encompasses the months of Loshis and Hamis, each of which are 40 days long. This season runs out-of-character from July 1st to August 30th, 2020, but Thorns plans to be flexible due to uncertainties and difficulties in real life during this time.

Please note: players are welcome and encouraged to thread through all of 2719 without requiring a memory thread label. However, at this time, any new threads in 2718 or before are considered memory threads.

Season Overview

Loshis inaugurates Mugroba as the Symvoul, or the seat of the Six Kingdoms’ politics. Politicians — and students, and academics — from all kingdoms, including Anaxas, flock to Thul Ka, leaving Vienda and Brunnhold sparse. Thul Ka is in its Flood Season through Loshis and Hamis, seeing a great deal of rainfall and flooding along the Turga, and readying itself for its planting season. The Flood Season is a time of celebration for Mugroba.

Still, travel difficulties, culture shock, and the turning of the Symvoul are all sources of tension. Trouble brews back in Vienda, too. With the capital absent of some of its most influential political players, whispers of upheaval grow louder and louder.

This year’s rainy season is particularly volatile, sweeping in with heavy thunderstorms and flooding toward the beginning of Hamis. Trade suffers around the coast of Hesse and along the Vein, and travel is difficult.

In many ways, tension has begun breaking; no one can guess how the summer and ensuing months will play out.
