Events Edit

January Edit

  • January 2: WTOJ broadcasts an intercept from an unknown sender via amenti.org. The author, as per the council’s request, I bent a considerable portion of his efforts of late to the task of getting a hold of Count Tjeby. As the Avenger knows, Tjeby has always been good about heeding both the will and the call of the council, and I had expected this occasion to be no different. After he had grown sure that conventional means would simply not suffice, he endeavored to discern Tjeby's location through mystical means. What he was certainly not prepared for, however, was the utter failure of those means as well. This turn of events leads him to a single, inexorable conclusion: "Our esteemed brother is no longer among the living. This would be no cause for concern, but for the current state of affairs in Duat. If our old friend was indeed forced into a death cycle now — with Neter-khertet the way it is — I fear greatly what may have become of him."[9]
  • January 7: WTOJ intercepts a radio broadcast at 23 MHz: "Help us! The sky has broken open over Ar-Ramadi and the sun is blotted out. It rains blood and fire. Demons walk the streets and speak the name of Vaniel, their master. Most of the population has been enslaved and made to tear down their homes to build a grand citadel to the Dark One. They’re coming for me—"[10]
  • January 8: The island of Hawaii was destroyed today in a massive explosion, as the volcanoes Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea erupted with more force than even the 1883 eruption of Krakatoa. The eruptions are the latest in a series of freak volcanic eruptions, as active, dormant and even presumed extinct volcanoes across the globe erupt in full force.[12]
  • January 11: An unprecedented rave takes place simultaneously at nearly every location in San Francisco tonight, drawing almost every resident into its wild revels. The so-called "Avatar Trance" was sponsored by two groups, the Waydown Viktae and the Bay Area Bacchantes. Police and FBI attempts to shut down the city-wide dance party fail completely, and authorities are baffled by malfunctioning equipment and the "conversion" of officers and agents to the ecstatic vibe.[9]
  • January 14: The crew of the American Antarctic coastal station has vanished shortly after a desperate email was dispatched to Washington, DC. The text of the email was simply, "The blood gods are here." Communications with Palmer coastal station have been similarly silent.[11]

February Edit

March Edit

April Edit

  • April 15: Lily meets a really nice guy in the Surfside Diner. When she tells him she has to leave, she feels like Cinderella.[15]
  • April 16: Lily meets up with the guy from the diner again.[15]
  • April 24: Lily brings E back to her apartment. He tells her he's going back home soon.[15]
  • April 25: E kisses Lily, and she can't stop herself from drinking his blood in response. She drinks too much, and gives him some of her blood to save him. When he awakes, she tells him what she's done; he tells her he never wants to see her again.[15]

May Edit

July Edit

September Edit

October Edit

  • October 15: The situation on the Elizabeth Dane seems normal, with nothing unusual to report.[15]
  • October 17: Two of the Elizabeth Dane's crew appear to be missing, perhaps gone overboard. Lt. Stygian has attempted to contact their families, but the radio isn't working. Additionally, the crate holding the sarcophagus appears to have been opened.[15]
    • A John Doe's body is moved to the Santa Monica Medical Clinic morgue. The Doe was found with only one pint of blood in his body. Foul play suspected.[15]
    • D. Perry's body is moved to the morgue. Perry apparently choked to death on ham and cheese.[15]
  • October 18: The Santa Monica Cathayan remarks that Cainites are curious and fragile, using their immortality for fleshy gain. He supposes they'll pose no threat to a takeover.[15]
    • G. Abobo's body is moved to the morgue. Abobo's wounds suggest being beaten to death with a baseball bat.[15]
    • D. Falz's body is moved to the morgue. Falz was severely beaten to death.[15]
  • October 19: Three more of the Elizabeth Dane's crew have gone missing, coinciding with the appearance of blood on the upper and lower decks. The Turk is curled up in a ball in his cabin, muttering something even he can't understand. Lt. Stygian and the radio technician were among the missing crew. A shortwave radio is found, but all calls for help have gone unanswered.[15]
  • October 20: The captain of the Elizabeth Dane leaves a haunting final entry in his log: "I leave this to whoever may find it. THIS SHIP IS CURSED. May it sink to the crushing depths of Davy Jones' Locker before therhbnkhjljsdlkajkl". The ship later turns up off the coast of Los Angeles without any crew.[15]
