As the civil unrest that marked the end of the millennium intensified, corporations became alarmed at the state of social and political affairs. Fearing to trust their assets to governmental military forces, they began arming their own security personnel with the finest equipment available and hiring professional mercenaries. As the tide of civil disobedience and urban violence began to engulf every nation on the globe, the corporations began transferring their paramilitary assets wherever needed.

Food riots of the late 1990's reach their peak in New York City, during the three month truckers' strike. Thousands are injured as violence spreads through the city.

* A 3-month truckers' strike causes food riots in New York.
* A Seretech truck hauling infectious medical wastes on Staten Island, is attacked by a mob in the mistaken belief that it carries food. Seretech security forces use lethal force to protect it. 20 Seretech employees and 200 rioters are killed.
* The Supreme Court upholds Seretech's actions as responsible for saving thousands of lives, rather than costing hundreds.

A precedent-setting ruling on The United States vs. Seretech Corporation, the Supreme Court upheld Seretech's right to maintain an armed force for the protection of its own personnel and property.

Scientist are surprised to discover a distinct new species of ferret in North America. Dubbed the Century Ferret due to the time of discovery, it is later concluded to be a "Spike Baby", a premature awakening.

In a landmark case, the Shiawase Decision (The Nuclear Regulatory Commission vs. The Shiawase Corporation) firmly established the extraterritoriality of multinational corporations in international law, by giving them the same rights and privileges as foreign governments.

* The Shiawase court decision establishes extraterritoriality for megacorps when a radical eco-group called TerraFirst! attacked a Shiawase nuclear power plant. Though the attack was repelled, the corporation used the incident to convince the Supreme Court that major multinational corporations need the ability to protect themselves. To this end, the Supreme Court granted major companies extraterritoriality. (TerraFirst! manages later to acquire evidence that the attack was in fact a setup with the intent to force the courts into granting sovereignty. However, before the group can act on said information, their headquarters is destroyed and key members killed in what is considered to be one of the first shadowruns.)
* Aug-Oct: NASA Mars probes photographs pyramids and a skeleton on the surface of Mars. The information is given the highest classification (Top Secret: Veil).

Angry that the government has leased additional Indian lands to United Oil, SAIM commandoes capture the Shiloh missile facility. They launch a Lone Eagle missile towards the Soviet Union, bringing the world to the brink of nuclear war. The crisis ends when the warheads mysteriously fail to detonate.

* The resource rush
* May 5: United Oil receives rights to 25% of national parklands and 10% of Indian lands.
* Sovereign American Indian Movement (SAIM) seizes the Shiloh launch facility in Montana. Delta Team retakes the site, but not before the terrorists launch a Lone Eagle ICBM at Russia. The missile never arrives at its destination. The reasons for this are unknown by the public.
* Re-Education and Relocation Act (Nepean Act in Canada) round up Native Americans into "reeducation centers".
* Native Americans are spared the worst of VITAS because of this internment, ironically.
* King Charles III is crowned in Westminster Abbey.

The Year of Chaos. Governments began to topple, famine stalks the world, nuclear power plants suffer meltdown, with extensive radiation fallout. The dawn of the "Awakened world" begins.

The first mutant and changeling children are born, signaling he start of the UGE (Unexplained Genetic Expression) Syndrome. The news media dub these new beings as "Elves" and "Dwarves."

On December 24, thousands of Japanese witness the first Dragon, Ryumyo, to reemerge from dormancy on Mt. Fuji. The same day, Daniel Howling Coyote, Prophet of the Great Ghost Dance, leads his followers out of the Abilene Re-EducationCenter.

Beginning this year, political chaos begins to engulf the planet. In 2011, the Federal government of Mexico dissolves in riots, while Tibet regains indepenence as magical defences seal it off from invasion and render the region incommunicado.

* Pope John Paul IV denounces metahumans as abominations in the eyes of God.
* England's Sizewell B nuclear power station suffers critical meltdown, resulting in a total death count of 17,000.
* A nuclear power plant in Dounreay, Scotland suffers a meltdown, creating the Scottish Irradiated Zone.
*July: Operation Discovery, an 8-man Mars Mission, makes planet-fall and begins its survey.

Daniel Howling Coyote announce the formation of the Native American Nations (NAN), with the Sovereign Tribal Councel at its head. The Dancers claim responsibility for the eruption of Redondo Peak in New Mexico; Los Alamos is buried under 100 meters of ash. A federal force sent in to retaliate is destroyed by tornadoes called down by the Ghost Dancers.

New U.S. President William Jarma issues the infamous Resolutions Act, sanctioning the extermination of all Native American tribes. In responce, the Indians began the Great Ghost Dance. Freak weather and other uncanny events destroy or disrupt U.S. military bases hosting troops slated for use in the Resolution Action. On August 17 in responce to the Ghost Dancers' growing power, Mount Hood, Mount Ranier, Mount St. Helens, and Mount Adams erupt simultaneously just as government troops are finally about to begin their attack.

First-generation ASIST (Artificial Sensory Induction System Technology) is created by Dr. Hosato Hikita of ESP Systems in Chicago.

The Treaty of Denver is signed. With this agreement, the federal governments of the United States, Canada, and Mexico acknowledge the sovereignty of NAN over most of western North America. The document outlined a ten-year population adjustment plan, that would relocate all non-Indians off lands belonging to NAN. Seattle remains as an extraterritorial extension of the U.S. as does most of California. Denver itself was set aside as the "Treaty City," under joint administration by the signing parties.

The U.S. spaceplane, America, with its secret military payload, disintegrates in orbit. The wreckage lands in Australia, killing 300 in the small town of Longreach.

* Aztlan invited to join the new Sovereign Tribal Council (STC) of the Native American Nations (NAN). As a member nation, it participates in the Treaty of Denver.
* The Treaty Of Denver resolves the dispute between the United States of America and the Native American Nations.
*Denver is divided between the US and four members of the NAN: Aztlan, Peublo Corporate Council, Sioux Nation, and Ute Nation.
*Denver and the surrounding territory becomes the Front Range Free Zone, a technically sovereign state governed by the Council of Denver.
* 1st-generation ASIST developed by Dr Hosato Hikita, ESP systems, Chicago.
* Civil war in China results in yet another fractured nation: Manchuria, Xinjiang, Guangxi, the Canton Confederation.
* The spaceplane America disintegrates in orbit, crashing in Longreach, Australia and killing 200.

Shiela Blatavska establishes the Atlantean Foundation.

Goblinization. On April 30, 10 percent of the world's population suddenly began to metamorphose into new racial types, known today as Orks and Trolls. This transformation, popularly known as Goblinization, marks another threshold point in the reemergence of magic on Earth. Humans react violently to the presence of the metahuman races in their midst.

* Martial law and concentration camps in the US.
* Yomi Island (Philippines) in the Japanese Empire.
* England's King George VII is declared dead, rumors persist that he was killed when he began changing into a troll.

Severe race riots continues all over the world in responce to the phenomenon of Goblinization. The U.S. governemnt declares martial law for several months, while reports trickling out of the Soviet Union indicate deaths on a mass scale. Many changed beings go into hiding or withdraw into separate communities.

Only another outbreak of VITAS quells the radical violence, leaving another 10 percent of the world's population dead in its wake.

The term, "Awakened Beings" is coined to describe the metahumans and other emerging life form

* Cuba, Jamaica, Grenada, Bermuda and the Virgin Islands join together to form the Caribbean League.
* Los Angeles is rocked by gang warfare, eventually suppressed by National Guardsmen. The city's worst slums are walled off, soon renamed "El Infierno" by local residents.
