Events Edit

January Edit

  • January 2: WTOJ broadcasts an intercept from an unknown sender via 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."[10]
  • January 5: WTOJ broadcasts an intercept from Witness1 over The message is simple: "The time for our new world has begun."[11]
  • January 6: In Palermo, Sicily, members of the cult calling itself the Society of the Nascent Flood today claimed credit for a mass kidnapping, claiming that those abducted would be used to feed the thirsts of their undead masters.[12]
  • 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—"[11]
  • 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.[13]
  • January 9: WTOJ broadcasts a message intercepted from Kuro-sama via an unknown source. "Honored Bone Ancestor: In these darkest of times, I find the call of the Hundred Clouds has grown so loud I can no longer ignore it. The cycle is over. I move on."[14]
  • 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.[10]
  • 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.[12]

  • April 24: Lily brings E back to her apartment. He tells her he's going back home soon.[16]
  • 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.[16]
