Sins of the Past
2014 started as any other year, with lots of parties, fireworks and celebrations. It was fairly uneventful day on June 6th, 2014 outside the scientific community, but astrologists were fixated on Venus and the beautiful solar flare disturbances during the current solar cycle’s solar maximum. The transit of Venus started around 3:00 PM eastern standard time and was the scientific sight of the century as the solar flares launched magnetic storms thousands of miles into space when they struck the surface of the molten planet. Around 6:00 PM eastern standard time California reported a small tremor and started a city wide preparation for a stronger quake. Soon the whole Caribbean and Eastern Coast of South America were reporting massive quakes. The devastation was on a scale no one had ever seen; whole cities crumbled and tidal waves bombarded islands nations like Japan. The source causing the world wide devastation was soon found; an enormous smoke stack was soon spotted rising out of the Pacific Ocean. A volcano had erupted deep under water and was pumping out massive amounts of lava and causing massive planet wide tectonic catastrophes, all but shutting down functioning societies but for for disaster relief and production services. The eruption and resulting disastrous effects went on for almost 80 years.
About two generations after the Eruption, reports started surfacing of horribly mutated infants and children mutating during their teenage years when their hormones reached their peak, as well as a marked increase in people with “Psychic” powers. The psychic reports were ignored by most as speculative insanity until the Grayson Incident in the 30th year after the Eruption(Y.A.E.). This new phenomena was eventually proven and dictated as The Force since most early instances were primarily object manipulation. The mutations were explained as genetic anomalies caused by the increased radiation in the atmosphere coming off of the massive volcano. People who were mutated like this were called Genetic Aliens
A world war broke out in the 57th year of the eruption, World War III, and it all but devastated what was left of the world’s resources and governments. The results of this war, combined with the destruction before it, formed new world powers and started a new age of hostile peace agreements based on accumulated powers and sometimes genetic purity.
This age continued and new governments, agencies, covert groups, terrorists and a new world order was created from the ash and rubble of the old world. The year is now 2376 or 284 PEand the universe has dictated the world be changed again.
