Late 1800s

  • The squalor, overcrowding and disease rampant in this century cause the Masses to lose faith in technology, so they turn to spiritualism, giving the Superstitionists a big boost in the waning years of the century.[81] Awakenings increase as people grow dissatisfied with industrialism.[82][83] Among those who benefit are the Verbena's Moon-Seekers.[84]
