| This Year In|
- Christopher Columbus arrives in The Americas, starting one of the greatest massacres the world has seen. His flagship, the Santa Maria, is a blend of caravel and carrack called a nao.
- The Conquistadors start to conquer the Americas. Wyrm influenced Conquistadors plunder gold of South American empires, as this symbolized the corruption of the purity of the Americas. One of the Conquistadors eventually becomes Lord Steel, the Duke of Hate, Maeljin of Abhorra, Urge-Wyrm of Hatred.  The Native Garou do not realize the threat until the Europeans arrive on the east coast, and the sheer weight of their numbers overwhelms their magical wards.
