  • The Garou of Russia hunt and destroy many of the agents of Baba Yaga, noticing that her structure and allies seem to be disappearing. Baba Yaga is destroyed by persons unknown to the Garou. The Shadow Curtain crashes down, reuniting the Russian werewolves with the rest of the Garou Nation.[9][10]
  • On the eve of their strike against the followers of the Centipede, Asian currencies collapse, striking at the root of the Golden Dragon Society's power. Followed by the revelation of bank and state corruption, Japan is thrown into a recession.[21] The Golden Dragon Society jettisons the remaining corporate power structure and returns to a focus on organized crime.[22] A unified effort keeps the Elemental Dragons from bankruptcy.[23]
  • This summer the accidental release of Chinese nerve gas kills three villagers and a regiment of Chinese soldiers. From this point, dark entities prowl the dreamscapes of Tibet.[24]

January Edit

  • Gabriel Van der Linden and his pack of fellow Cyber Dogs return from a journey to Belgium sporting impossibly complex cybernetics. This begins a significant increase in Cyber Dog numbers as Glass Walkers joined this revolutionary group.[33]
  • The Nine Fires, investigating a ritual abuse cult, tips its hand by punishing a clique of sorcerers they feel are in charge. Their actions alert the true cult leader, Herr Flax.[34]

February Edit

  • A Cyberpunk discovers a back door to an Iteration X mainframe at NORAD and lifts 20 gigabytes of data before they trace him.[36]
  • After a Core War, a Virtual Adept begins tripping off virus scanners wherever he goes despite being run through every known virus scrubber.[36]

April Edit

May Edit

June Edit

July Edit

  • In mid-July the Jackal Fever sweeps through urban Egypt, killing many of its poor. The disease also – peculiarly enough – afflicts Garou, though not fatally. The Ratkin are also afflicted, although their illness follows a cyclic pattern with weeks of normalcy, unlike the constant suffering of the Garou.[43] * . The plague kills many people and causes an intense craving for flesh, leading some Garou (mostly Bone Gnawers to commit cannibalism before they recover. Some Garou grow accustomed to eating human flesh and continue to do so after the plague ends. Meat Pudding is one of the most prominent cannibals, and he begins to encourage others to do so as well. [44]
