Ships of Merior
Third Age 5670: Arithon is crossing the Fourth Lane on Spring Equinox when Kharadmon presses him into service. Arithon uses his mastery of music and ties to the land to bind the Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Lanes in harmony. This allows him to tame the Lanes and end the unnatural winter brought about by Morriel's attack on Athera (but only within the boundaries of Rathain).
Third Age 5924: Dakar enacts a plan to plant one of the True Sect's stolen copper rods at Caith-al-Caen. This draws lightning from seasonal storms to the Fourth Lane and triggers hallucinations in The Hatchet's men across Daon Ramon Barrens. The Fellowship mitigate the latitudinal bleed off by warding Seshkrozchiel's hibernation location and protecting Desh-thiere's wards at Rockfell Pit.
