Real-life Events Edit

Classic World of Darkness Events Edit

  • 2003
    • Weekend concert-goers at a music festival report seeing an itinerant prophet who promises "salvation for the children of Seth and Cain" for those who accept the "path of Golconda." According to witnesses, the prophet had a third eye in the center of her forehead, as well as hands that wept blood from stigmata that appeared as she extolled onlookers to "accept the path."[2]

Trinity Universe Events Edit

  • 2000
    • Robert Schroer, a moderate Republican representative from Colorado, is elected 43rd President of the United States. Schroer began the Republican nomination process as a virtual unknown; his platform calls for continued economic reform and a return to so-called "common-sense" values. He wins a narrow victory in the general election over Vice President Gore, in which the Reform and Libertarian candidates also take sizable proportions of the vote. Following Schroer's win in the primaries, and escalating with his election, many of the GOP's far-right elements (the ones who had backed ex-Presidential son George W. Bush's unsuccessful bid for the nomination) divorce themselves from the party to found one more appealing to their agendas, the American Eagle Party (perhaps on the ashes of the Buchanan-ized Reform Party).[3]
  • 2001
    • Caestus Pax announces in a press release that, as of this morning (around 10:00 AM), the members of all five "families" of the New York City Mafia have been arrested by a joint task-force made up of Team Tomorrow, the FBI, and the NYPD. Pax assures Wolf Blitzer and Cokie Roberts that the charges will stick.[4]
    • Newsweek reports on the "End of the Five Families" of the New York Mafia, all of whom (from the capo di tutti capi down to the lowest button man) were busted by a Team Tomorrow/FBI/NYPD task force.[5] By the end of the year, the organizations of Camparelli and Zukhov are virtually all that remains.[6]
  • 2005
    • The first surgical trail of a complete spinal cord reconstruction is performed. The trial is a glowing success. Funding is provided by the Triton Foundation.[7]
  • 2102
    • Alex Cassel says in an OpMail to his girlfriend Ellayne Chen that "the Phantom" who keeps sending him cryptic messages is clever; the messages only come when he's alone, no matter what system he's on, and can't be saved. He feels he's going crazy, but knows he isn't. He thinks the Phantom has met its match.[8]
