Between Event Schedule
Market isn’t the only time things happen at Age of Ashes, for those who want to spend XP, interact with the organization map, rewrite or create new characters, the Downtime is the period for this! Typcially at least eight weeks are between events, and different actions close at different times so that staff can properly prepare for next market!
