| This Year In|
- Gratiano de Veronese joins the Anarch Revolt and leads the attack on the Castle of Shadows, resulting in the destruction of Lasombra the Antediluvian. Afterward, Gratiano convenes the Friends of the Night and announces his deed, but rejects the position of clan founder and calls for a restructuring of the clan. Most of Clan Lasombra join the anarchs, though a few led by Montano go into hiding and become antitribu. (See the Anarch Revolt article for notes on contradictions in dating.)
- Airship Agamemnon explodes while carrying un-Awakened passengers. After a conference, Celestial Masters decide to follow Captain Bernardo Marzani's example. They secretly built a Skyrigger fleet and train special crews for it.
