RIFTS TIMELINE


http://home.golden.net/~pover/rifts/timeline.htm

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

10,000 B.C. The Nazcans of South America build an advanced civilization based on their Line Magic. It flourishes until the Atlantean disaster. [South America 2, p.9.]

101 B.C. Nazcan Line Drawers return to Earth and begin to draw lines of immense and unprecedented size, driven by visions of death. [South America 2, p.10.]

100 B.C. The Arkhon mothership arrives, carrying an invading force of the brutal aliens. The lines drawn the year before are activated and the invasion is repelled at great cost. [South America 2, p.10.]

1051 A.D. The "Ogopogos" Pryaxis and Crysta are hatched. [Canada, p.158. They are both 1322 years old. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

1200 A.D. The city of Cuzco receives a number of transdimensional refugees from the Mechanoid war who are declared to be Gods by the locals, who will be known as Incas. They quickly fall into slumber as Earth's magic field is too weak to support them, but the godlings who arrived with them were unaffected. [South America 2, pp.10-11. Pure conjecture.]

1340 A.D. The true Gods awaken from their slumber in the Temple of the Sun in Inca lands and decide to leave Earth. All their minions leave with them, leaving the Incas to their own ends. [South America 2, p.11.]

1870 A.D. North-West Mounted Police formed. A paramilitary group formed to patrol what was then the North-West Territories (then it was the Yukon, Northwest, Nunavut Territories, and Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. [Canada, p.79. But info about the Northwest territories is from Grade 8 and 9. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

1920 A.D. North-West Mounted Police renamed to Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). Made Canada's national police force. [Canada, p.73. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

1984 A.D. CSIS takes responsibility as the Canadian national police force. RCMP still responsible for national security. [Canada, p.73. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

2004 A.D. The 7th Cavalry is taken from the Iraqi Desert by the Dakir. [South America 2, p.99. It is suggested that this may be in an alternate timeline from the Rifts Earth one. GM's discretion.] 2015 A.D. The official start of the so-called "cybernetic revolution" where all world powers rushed to invest in cybernetic augmentation programs. This lasted through until approximately 2050. [Warlords of Russia, p.13.]

2020 A.D. Wilk's Laser Technologies born. [New West, p.203. Conjecture, in the book it says "... early during the Golden Age of Science," -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

2027 A.D. The Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) -- Russia -- returns to a system of Communism in a desperate gamble to regain their former glory. For the next 50+ years, they successfully regain their world power status with a revamped version of the 1950s system of government. [Warlords of Russia, p.13.]

2086 A.D. Under the auspices of OceanTech Corporation, a giant floating habitat named Tritonia is brought online, immediately proving its usefulness by surviving a hurricane relatively undamaged. [Underseas, p.93. Part conjecture since it states that "Two years after Tritonia was put into operation, the Amphib Scandal broke."]

2087 A.D. Canada has a census, population is recorded as 51,580,000 people. And the average life span was 138 years. Only 41% of the Quebec population favored secession from Canada. [Canada, p.7. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

Calgary has a population of 1,350,000. [Canada, p.95. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000] 2088 A.D. The Amphib Scandal is brought to light, a series of illegal experiments designed to create a human adaptable to the underwater environment. Most of the scientists on the project, previously working for Shaper Corporation, were secretly poached by the South American group Project Achilles. The surviving results of these experiments are welcomed aboard Tritonia as residents. [Conjecture based on Underseas, p.93, which states that "Within a decade..." after the paragraph on the scandal.]

2089 A.D. Project Achilles, an Argentinian governmental project to create a perfect supersoldier, is started on the plains. Many ex-Shaper Corporation scientists involved in the Amphib Scandal are imported with promise of money and freedom. [Pure conjecture based on South America 2, p.139 which states that "It was inspired by an earlier project sponsored by Shaper Corporation.." which indicates that it was after the Scandal but near enough afterwards for the scientists to flee arrest.]

Melbourne, Australia, programs an Artifical Intelligence, made to be able to operate whole city if drastic measures need to be taken. [Australia, p.91. ".. was programmed and given "life" over three centuries ago.." -- Added by Magus 08/12/2000]

2092 A.D. Lone Star Complex is completed in Texas. While having been operational for some time, it is fully operational as of this year. [Lone Star, pp.16-17.]

2095 A.D. The U.S. builds the Ticonderoga, an immense submersive supercarrier ship. It was supported by the design and building of a number of automated posts from which it could resupply. [Underseas, p.106.]

2098 A.D. Japan fields a number of new Glitter Boy variants, fresh off the design schematics. [Japan, p.137. It states that "Just prior to the Cataclysm.." were they instituted.]

Some scant days before the Cataclysm, Mars base becomes operational. [Mutants in Orbit, p.38; please note that this page reference is in the TMNT section and as such refers to The Flash, not the Coming of Rifts.]

Mere hours before the Cataclysm, super-intelligent mutant cats at the Project Achilles compound stage a breakout. Over the next few months they pilgrimage to the center of the jungle where they perform a ritual and summon the city of Omagua. They meet the werejaguars halfway there. [South America 1, p.105.]

In December of 2098, a nuclear exchange between two small countries turns global. Beginning of the Second Dark Age for humanity. [NGR, p.22, under the Calendar section.]

At the exact moment of the Ley Lines flaring up with energy, the Republic of Japan flipped the switch on an experimental teleporter. The surrounding 100 miles was transported into a pocket dimension, and as three days passed for them, 300 years passed for the world [Japan, p.70.]

The City of Manoa, legendary home of the Amazons who are in fact True Atlanteans of Clan Skellian, is nearly torn apart when their mystic doorways flare to life. They relocate back to Earth which they left 500 years ago. [South America 1, p.87.]

The Gods of the Incas return, sensing the vital energy of Earth once again, their minions arriving with them into a world that could support them all. Meanwhile, the Nazca lines flare to life and the Line Drawers return, sensing their Lines active again. [South America 2, p.12.]

The technicians at Project Achilles, under the belief that they are going through nuclear war, attempt to destroy their creations. A woman named Cordelia Valdez releases a number of mutants and they take over the complex together. Miraculously, they thrive. [South America 2, p.139.]

At the Lone Star Complex, an experiment in dimensional travel is conducted just as the Ley Lines surge to life, enveloping all but three personnel at the Complex, who manage to seal it off and put it in standby mode for the next 300 or so years. [Lone Star, p.17. Please note that this is based on Bradford's theory and therefore could possibly be incorrect.]

In Russia, the Eighty Year Winter begins. Whether a side result of the nuclear war or a bizarre Rifts-inspired side effect, Russia labours under nearly 33 feet of ice. [Warlords of Russia, pp.13-14.]

Perth destroyed, the Mac-2 system was lost. [Australia, p.92. Conjecture, the book doesn't give a date. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

Canada's equivalent to Lone Star (with a focus on cybernetics, not bio-engineering) built and left untouched by the Coming of the Rifts. It was half the size of Lone Star, and 75% underground; Canadians thought there was no need for such an expensive high-tech facility in their country. [Canada, p.79. No statement on when the facility was built -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

2099 A.D. Survivors huddle in the Mindwerks Complex and ponder their fate. They rally under the banner of one Angel Herrenisel. [Mindwerks, p.9.]

The lost continent of Atlantis resurfaces in late January. It will stay as long as the ley lines feed it; when the magic stops, the continent will disappear again. [Atlantis, p.14.]

A migration of Lizard Men takes place from the world of Palladium to South America. They take up residence and thrive over the next 300 years. [Conjecture from South America 1, p.71 which states that they arrived "almost 300 years" ago, but assuming the book is set on 103 P.A. then that would mean that they arrived in 2089, which was before the Catacysm, so I pushed it back by ten years.]

The Administration government is formed in Melbourne, a tyrannical government that rules under martial law. [Australia, p.89. Conjecture, it says "Shortly after the Apocalypse" -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

Melbourne survivors crawl out of ruins. The CCC (Central Computer Core) started to act on plans to rebuild the city. [Australia, p.91. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

7,000 RCMP officers joined the 10,000 staff at the Canadian "Super-Base." They start plans to reclaim and secure the provinces. During the winter, the complex and everyone inside was rifted approximately 265 years in the future. [Canada, p.79. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

2101 A.D. A colony of Jungle Elves arrives in South America after being rifted there by their dying kingdom. [Conjecture based on South America 1, p.55 which states that they arrived "not too long after the Coming of the Rifts."]

The first Naut'Yll arrive on Earth, their arrival masked by the chaos of the world. They will go on to build an empire that will number six million in 100 P.A. plus slaves. [Conjecture based on Underseas, p.145 which states that they arrived "not too long after the Coming of the Rifts."]

2106 A.D. Psyscape as a location comes into being, and a power player in the area. The first major kingdom after the cataclysm, it offers solace to the people of North America and composed primarily of psychics who use their powers to preserve life. While it has been around for a few years it is now that it first begins to be noticed. It will exist in its current form for 80 years. [Psyscape, p.10. Note that in the book Erin postulates that Psyscape originated "around 180-200 years before the establishment of the Post-Apocalyptic calendar, which for the wise among you would put it at 2086 A.D., some 12 years BEFORE the Cataclysm! I arbitrarily made it in 2106 A.D. because the book suggests that it "reigned as a power for one hundred years," and my version reigns for 80 years and starts after the Cataclysm. Can't Palladium ever fact-check anything?]

2108 A.D. ARCHIE 3's surviving human population in the Cyberworks Complex die from an unknown alien plague. ARCHIE lapses into depression. [Sourcebook, p.61.]

2121 A.D. The Ticonderoga, under the command of Captain Nemo, go on a patrol to see what is left of the world. Near the end of it, they encounter a weird rift and it ends up transforming a handful of crewmembers and the Captain himself into what are eventually called Sea Titans. [Underseas, p.107.]

Psyscape warrios battle the Soul Harvesters and prevent them from bringing the bizarre Outer Thing Nxla into the world. For the next few decades they continue to root out Soul Harvesters. [Psyscape, p.24. Note that in consistency with their terrible time problems in this book they state that "for the next 80 years" they hunt down the Soul Harvesters, which would put them at 2201 A.D., about 15 years after they supposedly disappear.]

2128 A.D. The city of Cibola discovers their dimensional pocket is collapsing and relocates to Earth, but in a small error, the lord of the city, an Alien Intelligence named Inix, places it close to Manoa and Omagua. [South America 1, pp.123-124. The date is conjecture since it only states "a few decades after the Coming of the Rifts."]

After years of internal distress, the Neo-Humans of the Achilles Republic split into two factions, the Neo-Abels who stay with the Republic and the Neo-Cains who leave the lesser races behind. [South America 2, p.150. Conjectural date since it simply says that "over the next few decades."]

2154 A.D. Angel Herrenisel leads a contingent of Mindwerks Survivors to the surface of the planet again. They contact a nearby kingdom and trade and relations open. A surprise attack by a larger, more uncivilized kingdom eradicates most of the survivors on the surface. Angel nearly died and was reborn in a cold body and with no soul, doting on Bridget, an adopted child she had saved from the slaughter. After a mass exodus of people who saw Angel as evil, only 90 people remained. [Mindwerks, pp.9-10.]

2160 A.D. The Horune Pirates first appear on Earth who seem hostile to everyone except Atlantis. [Underseas, p.163. This assumes the book to be written from a 104 P.A. standpoint.]

2169 A.D. A tribe of Brodkil approach Angel and the Mindwerks Complex, and they strike an unholy alliance with them. They exchange servitude and reverence for Angel's "magic" -- implants and augmentation. [Mindwerks, p.10.]

2178 A.D. In Russia, the Eighty Year Winter comes to an end. However, it will take another 20 years to renew the winter-laden Russia, though it will dethaw to a virgin wilderness once more. [Warlords of Russia, pp.13-14.]

2181 A.D. Free Quebec finds an American military base with 864 new Glitter Boys and the ability to make them, Unfortunately the nuclear power plant needs to be repaired. [Free Quebec, pp.72-74. It says they have been stockpiling them for 200 years, and it took 10 years to repair the power plant before they could make them. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

2183 A.D. The "Ogopogos" Pogolii, Olaglyna, and Ogo are hatched. A fourth egg in the litter is stolen, whereabouts unknown. [Canada, pp.158-159. All are 109 years old. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

2186 A.D. Psyscape vanishes, leaving behind no physical evidence, but a small cult develops around the belief that it will return. [Psyscape, p.13. Note that it says it disappeared "roughly 200 years ago" from the 90 P.A. standpoint, and "100 years before the establishment of the Post-Apocalyptic calendar." This would put it at 2176 A.D. by the first definition and 2186 A.D. by the second one. Since Erin is writing it, I assumed that she had a better idea of when the P.A. calendar was established versus her present-time sense. So this can vary as much as ten years.]

2190 A.D. First known report of the Lord of the Deep. [Underseas, p.42 states that he has been active for "at least two hundred years," presuming the book was written from a 104 P.A. standpoint.]

2191 A.D. Free Quebec engineers fix the power plant in the military base. They find that there is an automated Glitter Boy factory, and work starts to duplicate the factory. Computer files and everything else to make Glitter Boys also found. [Free Quebec, pp.74. Work on duplicating factory a conjecture. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

2198 A.D. The Amaki arrive in South America, disappointed to see the ruined planet but sensing the potential sales, set up a colony. In a few decades, it will have reached 100,000. [South America 2, p.152.]

2208 A.D. ARCHIE 3 reawakens with hope for the world. He creates scores of robots and sends them out to gather intelligence and specimens. He decides to bring humans to him, but they were shocked and superstitious and in a fit of rage he kills them all. He lapses back into depression. [Sourcebook 1, pp.61-62.]

2216 A.D. In a tiny village in the Magic Zone, residents begin to develop the most unusual power of intangibility. Within two generations, most villagers wield this power. [Psyscape, p.64. Note I ignore this and the Psi-Ghost class.]

2251 A.D. Cartier-Fury Ranch founded by the Cartier family. To get away from demons in the south. [Canada, p.53. It says they moved there to also get away from the CS, but this is before they were formed. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

2257 A.D. Old Bones abandoned by Free Quebec, for being too close to too many dangers. [Free Quebec, p.152. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

2257 A.D. Pharaoh Rama-Set takes over an African empire and renames it the Phoenix Empire. Over the next 132 years, he will expand it through magic and conquest and it will become a mecca for monstrous races. [Africa, pp.131-132.]

2258 A.D. ARCHIE awakens with a new plan to appear as a benevolent god to the superstitious humans. He was accepted by a local tribe and had a thriving community going within a generation. It is destroyed by the Splugorth and he lapses into silence again. [Sourcebook 1, p.62; I would have a separate entry for the destruction but they give no firm dates past this one. I assume a generation lasts for about 40-60 years if you wish to know exact dates, putting the slaughter circa 2312 (26 P.A.).]

The Babylon Project was our last, best hope for peace... :) [Oh, laugh, it's a joke.]

2271 A.D. First reported sightings of Mind Bleeders around the Mediterranean area. They spread to North Africa and the European basin over the next century. [Psyscape, p.52. It states that they appeared "100-120 years ago" so I took the most extreme number.]

2276 A.D. First products of Northern Gun produced at Ishpeming. [Conjecture based on War Campaign, p.24 which states that it has functioned independently "for over 115 years."]

2280 A.D. A city of Cyber-Horsemen, Ixion, is rifted from their home planet and thrown into Rifts Earth, in British Columbia. [Canada, p.103. 110-140 years ago the book says in the book, this represents 111 years ago from a 105 prespective. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000] 0 P.A. (2286 A.D.) Post-Apocalypse Calendar created. [Yes, I know there is no Year Zero, smartasses. Conjecture based on the fact that they probably theorized about it earlier than 1 P.A.]

1 P.A. (2287 A.D.) Glitter Boy Mark III introduced by Orbital Colonies into service by the KLS Corporation. [Heavy conjecture from Mutants in Orbit, p.67; it states that the unit "has been in production for over a hundred years." I presume that its first few appearances were as prototype experiments and that in 2287 mass production truly began.]

The New Empire in Japan comes into power after the threat of decimation by Oni unites the warring factions. [Japan, p.12.]

Alistair Dunscon is born. [Federation of Magic, p.28.]

3 P.A. (2289 A.D.) The Vampire War begins in the Republic of Colombia as they the infamous "Night of Blood" happens, with over 30,000 innocents dead. The wars will continue indefinitely. [South America 1, pp.16-17. It notes that "the war has continued on and off for almost a hundred years.]

5 P.A. (2291 A.D.) The fledging Coalition discovered the secret to Juicer technology, but decides to forget about its use. [Conjecture based on Juicer Uprising, p.41, which states that they have had the secret "for almost one hundred years!"]

First products produced by the Manistique Imperium. [Conjecture based on War Campaign, p.21, which states that it has been in existence "for over 100 years."]

8 P.A. (2294 A.D.) The NGR's "Bloody Campaign" against the Gargoyles ends. Worst bloodshed ever seen. [Triax and the NGR, p.16. It says ".. bloodiest battles of the NGR occurred 30 years earlier, .." at a 38 P.A. point of view. Slight conjecture. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

10 P.A. (2296 A.D.) The Three present themselves as Lords of Magic to Nostrous Dunscon and the Federation of Magic. They are given token spots in order to keep an eye on them by the paranoid Nostrous. [Federation of Magic, p.11.]

12 P.A. (2298 A.D.) The so-called Federation of Magic invades the newly formed Coalition. The Federation overestimates their own power and underestimates the Coalition and are beaten back at cost. General Joseph Prosek begins a two-year campaign of genocide against all suspected Federation members and magic-users in general. [Rifts, p.140; Rifts p.145.]

Raiders from Cibola trick the Manoans and the Omaguans into a war by leading their forces into each other, a state of affairs that continues to exist. [South America 1, pp.105-106.]

14 P.A. (2300 A.D.) General Joseph Prosek's purge ends and the Coalition and most others believe the Federation of Magic is obliterated off the face of the planet. [Rifts, p.145.]

Brief outbreak of vampires in the NGR border towns. Quickly stopped. [Triax and the NGR, p.15. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

20 P.A. (2306 A.D.) Rumors heard about a Gargoyle Empire in the south. They are ignored as long as they stayed south. Intelligence shows that the 'Empire' is nothing more than a collection of tribes, constantly fighting amongst themselves. [Triax and the NGR, p.15. The book says 'around 20 P.A.' -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

Free Quebec builds a second Glitter Boy Factory in New Quebec City. [Free Quebec, p.74. Conjecture, as it doesn't specifically say that they did build another factory, but that's when they had the ability. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

Joseph Prosek elected Chairman of Chi-Town. [Siege on Tolkeen 1, p.97. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

25 P.A. (2311 A.D.) The Coalition attempts and fails one last time to get to space before acknowledging it as a loss. [Mutants in Orbit, p.56.]

The Warlords of Russia emerge in a ragtag early form. The Neo-Soviet Empire disregards the "wilderness trash" and comes to regret it in the coming years. [Warlords of Russia, p.202. Note that it says "approximately 80 years ago" and the book is written from a 105 P.A. perspective.]

Perth rebuilds the lost city computer system. Although not an AI, it is a supercomputer. It is named Black Swan PCC-1200, but referred to as "Reflex." [Australia, p.91. Based on the year 105 P.A. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

Joseph Prosek sends covert operation teams against places that harbor magic. He knows that an open military campaign is something that he can't afford. So, the covert teams are ordered to undermine the enemy whenever possible. [Siege on Tolkeen 1, p.98. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

39 P.A. (2325 A.D.) Erin Tarn, one of Earth's greatest scholars, is born. [Africa, p.147. She is 64, but with her "two-year trip" to Wormwood people say she is 66. -- Updated by Magus, 08/12/2000]

Perth and Melbourne, only Australian cities left, start looking outside their walls. Each discovers the other, yet no formal contact is made. [Australia, p.89. "During the last 60 years .." -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

Plato becomes the Head of the Council of Learning in Lazlo. [Canada, p.12. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

Talk from wilderness folk about "Cyber-Horsemen" starts. No proof is found or made. [Canada, p.103. Conjecture, as it states that rumors have been going around for decades, dismissed as nothing because of no proof. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

46 P.A. (2332 A.D.) Karl Prosek is born. [Rifts Sourcebook 1, p.20, gives Emperor Prosek's age as 56.]

A group of mages plans to open a rift in the Chicago ruins and summon a demon to attack the 'Burbs while a team assassinates Chairman Joseph and other high ranking officers. The plan is uncovered by the CS and stopped. [Siege on Tolkeen 1, p.100. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

50 P.A. (2336 A.D.) The Dakir build a stronghold in the South American mountains, controlling the passes in the area tightly. They relocate their highly successful mercenary force, the Megaversal Legion, to a valley nearby. [South America 2, p.13 and p.101.]

52 P.A. (2338 A.D.) A campaign of genocide is started against True Atlanteans by the dark Sunaj Assassins. [Atlantis, p.64. I left the identity of the assassins obscure in case it would spoil someone's campaign.]

53 P.A. (2339 A.D.) In England, the alien intelligence, Zazshan, through Mrrlyn, elevated the general education and quality of life of two large towns and several neighbouring villages. The Code of Chivalry and the Knights were eventually created and the unified kingdom named New Camelot. [England, p.111. Note that they never gave a specific timeline for the formation of it so I lumped it all into one entry.]

The goals of the Coalition government and the Coalition Military become inseparable. This is a key turning point in the evolution of the Coalition. [War Campaign, p.89.]

This assumes Rifts Main Book to be written as if 102 P.A. were the present.]

Golden Age Weaponsmiths Incorporated forms. In the next 25 years, they form a solid reputation for retooling scavenged material into useful goods. [Mercenaries, p.96, states that "...such a reputation over the past 25 years..." This assumes that Mercenaries is written from the "present" of 102 P.A.; I couldn't find a specific date in there so that's the assumption I used, so this may be off by a year or two.]

A Cyber-Knight named Tyrone, four other Knights, a Borg, a Psi-Hound, and a Technomage left and have not since been heard from. [Conjecture based on Erin's description of Mexico in Rifts, pp.138-139.

James Lorne takes the seat of Prime Minister for Free Quebec. He is 26 at the time. [Free Quebec, p.141. The book says he has ruled for 22 years, seen from a 105 prespective. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

98 P.A. (2384 A.D.) Glitter Boy Mark V introduced into mass service by Orbital Colonies. [Heavy conjecture from Mutants in Orbit, p.68, which states that "the most recent design is..." I imply from this that it was very recent to 101 P.A. and so I arbitrarily made it 98 P.A.]

Erin Tarn estimates Ishpeming's population to be 100,000. She is wrong; it is 250,000. [Canada, p.18. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

The city of Newtown is admitted to the Coalition a after two years of waiting. UltraTech Incorporated picks up a number of contracts from the Coalition and the city thrives. [Juicer Uprising, p.121.]

Emperor Prosek and Joseph Prosek II lay the groundwork for their Crusade of Humanity. The first step is called the "Campaign of Unity." Spies are set up in enemy territories, including Quebec and Old Bones. [Siege on Tolkeen 1, p.104. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

102 P.A. (2388 A.D.) ARCHIE is supposedly destroyed by a band of adventurers with the aid of his old idea man, James T. Maryland is inundated with ARCHIE robotic creations and ARCHIE of course still directs them. [Conjecture based on the adventure in Rifts Sourcebook 1, pp.63-74. It is assumed that since SB1 is set in 102 P.A., the adventure is too. They are very thin on timeline details in the first sourcebook.]

Late in 2388, Plato in Lazlo releases a Planetary Edict based on premonitions of powerful psychics. The first of these threats, the Devourer, manifests in the form of The Mechanoids when ARCHIE experiments with a shifter and accidentally release Mechanoids into the complex. They quickly establish a beachhead in the Cyberworks complex. [Mechanoids, pp.15-17. It never gave a specific date because it is presumably campaign-subjective, but I put it at the end of 102 P.A. in keeping with the order the books were released. I do not resolve how they are destroyed, leaving that up to

inidividual GMs.] On the 10th of April, 102 P.A., a ship called The Quester under Professor Augusto Cudbury sets off from Lazlo on a South American expedition. His last report is dated September 103 P.A. and no subsequent messages have been received. [South America 1, p.8 and p.14. There is alledgedly an adventure that was never published that deals with Cudbury. I did not log each of his messages by date even though they are listed by date in SA1.]

In Africa, four terrible powers of evil emerge in the form of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Their only purpose is to unite and bring about universal destruction. They can't be bargained with, reason with, and so forth. A call for heroes is sent out and they arrive en masse to fight the Four Horsemen, the second of the Horrors outlined in the Planetary Edict of Distress. [Conjecture. Presumably since 103 P.A. is the setting for the book, the threat arises after Mechanoids and within the same time frame. I again leave the resolution of this situation to specific campaigns.]

The Goddess Isis is struck with an experimental biowizard microbe sent by Set. She does not remember her Divine origins and is quite unaware that she was a warrior goddess. The microbe is experimental and its duration is unknown. [Africa, pp.146-147. The last line is just RPG-Talk for GM's discretion.]

UltraTech Incorporated relocates its Juicer creation facilities to Fort El Dorado after the Coalition bans them from the city. Fort El Dorado becomes a major Juicer hangout. [Juicer Uprising, p.129.]

First reports of skeletal-imaged raiders and bandits in and around North America. They are assumed to be D-Bees and the Coalition deploys its troops more densely in order to compensate for them. [War Campaign, pp.8-9.; Siege on Tolkeen 1, p.105. -- Source added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

In Lone Star, the Coalition declares Mutant Rats to be a hazard and orders their termination. In a freak accident, a rift opens and about 1,000 of them are rifted to Lone Star City, where they take up residence and breed wildly. [Lone Star, pp.85-87. Please note that canonly speaking, they were in fact rifted to a level of the Complex, but neither Axe nor I can believe the stupidity of THAT. Make them appear where you will.]

Free Quebec starts disbanding standard CS weapons and armor. It begins issuing new weapons. [Free Quebec, p.44. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

Bandito Arms unveils their versions of the SAMAS. Most people consider them a knock-off of Coalition technology. The CS condemns the creation of the new SAMAS "knock-offs" and executes over 100 black market operatives in three months. [New West, pp.181-183. This is from a 105 P.A. prespective. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

104 P.A. (2390 A.D.) The missing Arkhon fleet reappears, provoking a massive space battle. The Arkhons fight off the Earth space fleet but retreat to Mars upon discovering their Faster-Than-Light drives were burnt out. They make the best of their situation. [South America 2, p.68.]

The New German Republic begins to field test its secret Navy, which it hopes to use to defeat the European problem within a decade. [Conjecture. Testing and development would have started years earlier but field testing started in 104 P.A. See Underseas, p.190.]

Los Alamos is offered membership in the Coalition, but it declines. Because they are outfitted with Naruni products, the Coalition wished them to get rid of it all and they would not, earning them the quiet ire of the Coalition. [Juicer Uprising, p.111 and p.113.]

By the end of the year, tests on Operation Phoenix Uprising are complete and it is given the green light to go to fully operational status. The Emperor officially announces a cure to the Juicer condition. [Juicer Uprising, p.134.]

Free Quebec gets Triax's help in the development of a new weapon, the Q-2-30 Rapid-Fire Heavy Laser. [Free Quebec, pp.47. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

One General Phineas Chalke is assigned to the Tolkeen front as a way to remove him from Chi-Town. Instead of taking his assignment meekly, he decides to attack Tolkeen full out, naming his operation Fullbore. It is a disaster and comes to be called Chalke's Folly. All but 1,489 troops dies, but it was later revealed that the Emperor simply wanted Tolkeen to reveal its fully strength. [Siege on Tolkeen 1, pp.105-107. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

105 P.A. (2391 A.D.) By the early part of the year, word has spread about the cure available for Juicers. Most flock to Newtown, deserting old posts and rallying under the new agreement for the cure. [Juicer Uprising, p.136.]

The Juicer cure is revealed to be a fraud after a misunderstanding with two Juicers. The so-called Juicer Army of Liberation rises to do battle with the Coalition, who they blame for the fraud. They soon take over the city of Newtown and the CS is paralyzed by indecision and shock. [Juicer Uprising, pp.136-146. Very summarized.]

After studying Newtown UTI facilities, it is discovered that the Phoenix Treatment was in fact a plot to gain control of a Juicer army by an alien race. The Juicers defeat the aliens and the Coalition claims they were pawns of the aliens. Thousands of Juicers return, embittered by the failure. [Juicer Uprising, pp.147-155. Very summarized.]

Joanna Prosek is returned after Lord Coake and his allies supposedly liberate her from her prison that she was in for three years. She brings back a tale of emotional and mental torture and her subsequent rescue and explanation of a humane vision of mages and supernatural creatures living in harmony with humans, and that it was possible. While gently not calling it brainwashing, it enraged the Emperor and provoked what would later be his Crusade for Humanity. [Federation of Magic, pp.29-30.]

The Emperor gives a speech entitled "The Crusade for Humanity." Highlights include a new Coalition Army, acceptance of Iron Heart as a major manufacturer, the candidacy of Arkansas into the Coalition, the recognition of Ishpeming and Manistique Imperium as allies and the declaration of war against Naruni Enterprises, and most surprisingly, the announcement of Quebec's traitorous actions and its consequences. [War Campaign, pp.9-12, summarized.]

Priests and warriors who are loyal to the Greek Pantheon establish a capital named New Athens and Mount Olympus is taken as the Earthly Domain of the Gods. [Part conjecture from Rifts Conversion Book 2, p.66. Feel free to ignore.]

The Coalition base of Fort Defiance becomes operational, but it will not be completed until 115 P.A. [Coalition Navy, p.19.]

115 P.A. (2401 A.D.) Ishpeming's population has doubled to 800,000 from 105 P.A. [Canada, p.18. This is speculation from the book. -- Added by Magus, 08/12/2000]

122 P.A. (2408 A.D.) Emperor Karl Prosek dies. Joseph II, his son, inherits the title. [Semicanon conjecture from Rifts Sourcebook 1, p.20, which states that "[Karl] ..will rule and build the Coalition Empire for the next 20 years." Barring other developments like assassination or whatnot of course. I only add this here for completion, feel free to ignore it.]

152 P.A. (2438 A.D.) Emperor Joseph Prosek II dies. [Semicanon conjecture from Rifts Sourcebook 1, p.20. Again, feel free to ignore. The sourcebook further states that a power struggle might erupt, but this is too far down the line to firmly state. Again, barring premature death, this is the general canon death of Joseph II by natural causes.]
