life springs up in gentle rains and you plant your crops.
Sea season is the time where your farmers are busy planting your crops. As your ring members will tell you, it isn't a good idea to go raiding in this season, if you do, expect your harvest to suffer this year.
|“|| In Fire season, the fields take care of
themselves and the warriors cry for battle and a chance for glory.
This is the season to go steal cattle and plunder your enemies' tulas. Beware, though, you are also likely to be raided in this season.
|“|| In Earth season, you put aside the
sword and take up the scythe.
This is harvest time, as in Sea season, your food stores will suffer if you go pull the farmers away to go raiding.

of the reach of blizzards and ice demons.
During the wintertime, your weaponthanes might refuse to go raiding, and both trading and exploring will be very dangerous because of the snow.
|“|| In Storm season, all things are possible, but nothing is
Storm season is unpredictable, but it isn't a bad time to go raiding, especially if your ancestral foe is the Warlord of the Ice Tribe.
|“||And, at the end of the year, there are two magical weeks when you return to the timeless realm of the Godplane. You, and all other intelligent beings, perform the Sacred Time rituals that heal and recreate the world, allowing the wheel of Time to begin again with a new year.||”|
