With midsummer passed, the last few weeks have seen a most unusual decline in the weather. Temperatures across the Gray Vale have been dropping steadily, and Winter seems to be coming early .... far too early. Travel has not yet become impeded, but crops across the land are destined to freeze and die before harvest leaving the entire area under the threat of starvation.
