Background Edit

Life in the Viceroyalty Edit

Food Shortages Edit

The first three decades of the Viceroyalty's existence, food shortages plagued the lives of the locals, which led a cycle of problems: food shortages causing unrest, making the presence of the Etrandish army necessary to quell potential revolts, which in turn necessitated the diversion of food rations from the civilian population to the army, perpetuating the scarcity of food for the civilian population of Etrancoast.

In fact, in 274-275, Etrancoast was described as going through a "famine". Even though few - if any - people died of starvation, the shortage of "normal" food forced much of the population to temporarily adopt unorthodox diets: urban residents turned to eating turnip soup, "wood-bread" (historians still struggle to find out what it was), "bread" made out of bonemeal, which in turn often came from the rats the starving citizens were forced to eat. Rural people had it only slightly better: most people went out into the forests to either forage or hunt. In the most extreme cases, people ate frogs, snails, slugs, chicory and dandelion roots.

Deaths caused by these new unorthodox meals were relatively frequent, while deaths of actual starvation were very rare, if happened at all to begin with. By 312, when the "military government" was replaced by a "civilian government" the relief effort by Etrand's government has managed to prevent the outbreak of a true famine, and as 38 years have passed since 274, Etrancoast has managed to rebuild it's infrastructure well enough to produce enough food for the bulk of the population. By the 320's, everyone but the poorest have returned to what can be called a "normal" diet that excludes unorthodox dishes like rats and slugs.

Food shortages would momentarily return however, for almost a decade in the 380's, and again in a much more severe form during the Etrancoasti Famine of 411 - the last famine in Etrancoast's history that actually claimed human lives.
