The Troubling Times is a period of confusion and uncertainty for the community. The New Sarovian Empire is standing, guilds are crumbling, and people are panicking as to which direction the community was heading. It can be said that the Troubling Times started when the Free States fell.
Most notable of the movements during this period is the "People Against Sarovia Movement", simply referred to as PAS. PAS was labelled as a resistance against the ever-growing Sarovian Empire. The movement was primarily headed by Paw Vivre but several guilds and organizations revolved around the movement as well.
