Year 575 of the Second Age

The Year of the Shovel

(243rd Year of the 6th Unknown King of Duinnor)

The Yellow Death reaches all of the Realms and spreads throughout the Dragonlands. One in five of the race of Men die, and one in three of the Dragonkind, but the Elifaen are not affected. In the west, heavy snowfall and severe cold kill many who are weakened by the years of plague. In the spring, the Osterflo and other rivers flood their banks, destroying many towns and vast areas of cropland.

In the east, Glareth is severely damaged by the flooding Osterflo. The Yellow Death plagues the Eastlands and Tracia, and, in the south, Altoria and Masurthia suffer terrible losses due to the fever.
