| This Year In|
- 1455-1487: The War of the Roses between the houses of York and Lancaster, both contenders to the english throne.
- Diplomate Luis is assassinated by a Solificati rival. Without him, the Tradition collapses, leaving vacant the Seat of Matter on the Council. Some Solificati defect to the Order of Reason; 12 are sheltered by the Order of Hermes; most shun both Orders and go into hiding. The remaining Traditions form Wards within Horizon, sequestering themselves away from others.
