December 25, 2012. Christmas. An annual Terra Firma holiday before the new year.
But this was not for celebration, religious contemplation, and gifts under a green, twinkling tree in someone’s house. Humans, however, were recovering from the Wave’s devastating, life-altering effects that could get worse by the minute.
Terrans appeared all over, demonized as living weapons and studied in hopes for a cure. The United States gathered the bodies of the enthralled and plan to refill government offices to retain national security. The European Union races to prevent widespread hysteria against magic. Remote towns and villages were cut off, vying to find meaning in this new world while most of the major cities were damaged by the crystals and their populous, unclear how to rebuild. All the world’s religions were questioned what is truth and what is not after the affirmation that magic and extraterrestrials were real.
Heavy uncertainty on all human and terran shoulders.
