Actually, the disappearance of the sun would have been a blessing at the time. The Dragonstorm was ravaging mid-Sarvonia. The sun disappearing effectively ended the Dragonstorm.

I suspect it would have been the kind of blessing that takes a while to sink in, though.  Imagine the initial fear and panic when the SUN DOESN'T RISE, for pity's sake!

All their shenanigans woke Ava, and she sent the darkness to CONSUME THE DRAGONZ.

Doesn't that technically mean you have been writing imagining it?

(No idea why I originally wrote 'writing'...)

How is your story going? Have you reached any minor resolutions in the plot? Any major climaxes?

Like the Great Fire of London. Ended the plague, so I hear, but I doubt that consoled anybody as they watched their houses burn. The relief comes later. And small villages may have escaped the notice of the dragons.

The date when the sun vanished is already fixed:


Quote
1649 b.S.       The Vardýnnian Atonement
It is said that the Burning God, Foiros, finally hears the bidings of the human priests begging for the help of the gods to finish the torment of the dragons: At the end of the Caelerethian year the burning orb of the sun descends below the world and returns not before one year has passed, so that a deadly coldness afflicts dragons and humans alike. Many dragons and humans fail to survive this so-called Vardýnnian Atonement in the Year of Darkness.

So, I would say, it was Yearturn.

Hello everyone!

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
