        Jeff, thanks very much for the clarification. Much appreciated.

>> 	The only way to reconcile the two that makes much sense, is that the Bat attacks precede the Fall of Whitewall by some time. While the timing given in the CHDP is wrong about the year the Bat attacks, and wrong about length of time between the Bat and the fall of Whitewall, it may be at least partially correct, in that there is a gap between the unsuccessful attack of the Bat, and the successful attack that brings about the fall of Whitewall. 

> The Bat attacks Whitewall in 1620 - no specific date is given as of yet. The Bat is defeated by the defenders of Whitewall - which frankly is one of the biggest defeats the Lunar Army has experienced in a very long time and triggers lots of other activity in the Provinces. There is an article in the coming edition Wyrms Footprints detailing the Military History of Dragon Pass from 1602 to 1625 (considerably expanded and corrected version of the original article that appeared in Different Worlds a few decades ago).
	Pavis, Wyrms Footprints, new KOS, Glorantha Guide, so much to look forward to this year. I am looking forward to buying every bit of it.
