Trinity Universe: 2054
- November 2: S. Helbig, FBI Director, sends a message to C. Barnett of the Omaha Office. Barnett is approved for a raid on the Hastings compound, and is authorized to use any means necessary to bring Calvert Wycoff into custody.
- November 3: Minutes into the FBI raid on his compound, Aberrant Calvert Wycoff, leader of the Prophets of Jehovah, immolates himself in a Taint-ridden explosion that affects most of the American Midwest. Although the effects are not immediately apparent, the detonation has rendered most arable farmland useless. The area comes to be known as the Blight.
- Shortly after the Wycoff explosion, South America closes its borders, erecting the "Necessary Wall."
