The Plague was a terrible disease that emerged from the western encampments two years after the founding of Hai’grum. The Plague lasted about six years, during which time the local authorities often quarantined citizens. The inherent dangers of trade weakened the economies until after 1110y.
The Plague caused the deaths of about a fifth of the population. Many government officials were killed.
Hai’grum was greatly affected by the plague in 1095y.
The Plague was eliminated in 1100y after a combined effort from the churches, local, and government authorities. It is at this time that Hospitalers become members of standard patrols.
