| This Year In|
- Default starting date for Dark Ages: Vampire (also Dark Ages: Mage, Dark Ages: Inquisitor, Dark Ages: Werewolf, and Dark Ages: Fae).
- 1208-1244: Albigensian Crusade against the Cathars in France continues. The war results in the complete destruction of the cultures of Provençe and Aquitaine.
- The Astral Reaches are notably empty, echoing with the loss of Rome, Alexandria, and Byzantium to anti-intellectual forces. Many concept-spirits aren't seen again until the Renaissance, some are never seen again.
- Matthew again writes to his Masters. The rebuilding of the town the Tremere destroyed goes well, but he finds their request for a "specimen" unfathomable. Regardless, he will do his best to retrieve a vampire for study.
