Events Edit

  • A British platoon encounters a local tribe. Soldiers begin to go missing during the night, replaced with Fetish Statues.[1]
  • During this century the thus-far Indian and Chinese Khan begin to breed with the English that have arrived in their homelands, largely out of respect for their ability and ferocity.[3]
  • The inbred Bubasti Bastet become stronger due to new blood from European genes.[3]
  • Agents of the Wyrm begin sowing seeds for the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia.[7]
  • Wendigo spread south, all the way into Mexico.[8]
  • Most modern magick colleges are founded in this century.[9][10]
  • The field of "psychical studies" comes about as an attempt to scientifically quantify the paranormal abilities of humanity.[14]
  • Julian Spence begins a self-study of the long-term effects of opium on the brain.[16]
  • Japan's feudal period lasts until this time.[17] As Japan industrializes, water pollution causes many native kappa to sicken and die.[18]
  • The Void Seekers have nearly completed their work, as most of the Earth has been explored.[27]
  • Accounts of large quadrupeds with long necks and tails come out of the Congo. These creatures are dubbed mokole-mbembe.[30]
  • Many of Myanmar's "Karen" ethnic group are converted by Baptist missionaries.[33]
  • Two things keep the Artificers busy during this century: following up on industrial processes and the obsession with refining the previous generations of analog computers.[42]
  • The Baruti begin to fear that the destruction of ancient traditions is starting to outpace their ability to salvage lost information.[43]
  • Horatio Alger writes a series of children's books where heroes go from rags to riches through hard work, luck, and good deeds.[45]
  • Some shamans still practise in some small towns in Europe as late as this century.[46]
  • Although the Muse of Horror has been around as long as mankind, it is only this century that one of the most gifted poets of the Western world gives her a name: Lenore.[47]
  • Russian military records describe what they call almas and kaptars in Central Asia. Historians will later realize they're surviving populations of Homo habilis.[49]
  • Some Technocrats examining governmental forms become enamored of the ideas of Proudhon, Bakunin and Kropotkin, which come to be called the anarchist movement.[50]
  • Reports begin of some sort of spirit/ghost/demon/thing which attacks people through mirrors after a light goes out.[52]

Early 1800s Edit

  • By this century, due to corruption and complacency, a dedicated Daedalean will almost certainly be killed as a threat to the "greater good."[62]
  • China's population has swelled to 300 million by this century.[65]
  • By this century, French excursions into the Mekong threaten Siamese sovereignty.[66]
  • Pittsburgh and its surrounding communities grow at an extraordinary rate.[69]

Mid-1800s Edit

Late 1800s Edit

  • 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.[80] Awakenings increase as people grow dissatisfied with industrialism.[81][82] Among those who benefit are the Verbena's Moon-Seekers.[83]
  • Experts believe the Mafia is imported to America by Italian immigrants at the end of this century.[86]
  • The original Dithyramb tablets disappear from the walls of the temple to Dionysus where they've laid for the last 2600 years.[97]
  • A Virtual Adept describes magic by comparing it with sight. Some have perfect vision, some don't, and a rare few are entirely blind.[98]
