002 history

Post  vampyre on Sat Aug 15, 2009 6:47 am


002 Arcadia History: that which is known or rumoured (italics):

1131: The Knights Templar establishes a mystery school on Arcadia Isle in the "Land of the Western Star."
1235: The Duke of Tuscany Henri De Lorraine founds the priory and watch tower where a "great repository was stored for protection against the church." The Priory and hidden sanctuary is completed in 1243.
1307-1318: Expansion of the Priory as Templars arrive, fleeing the betrayal of the order by the King of France and the Papacy.
1679: Arrival of the first settlers from England. They record being welcomed by monks from a priory and given land in which to settle. The founding of New Providence, New Arnhem and Arnhem settlements.
1685: Arrival of the Duke of Marseille, the De Lorraine family from Languedoc with settlers from Languedoc, Tuscany and the Holy Roman Empire. The building of Chateau Montsegur.
1703-1742: Arrival of more settlers from England. New settlements established in the hinterland as farming, forestry and mining become established industries.
1747: Arnhem is razed to the ground during conflict with "Canadian rebels" It is rebuilt 1750.
1748: The only pass through the mountains is protected by watch towers after the raid from Arnhem the year before.
1888: The University of Arcadia is officially granted status by the Government.
1941-1945: 5,488 citizens serve the United States in World War II. 1,645 are killed or wounded in action.

2008: Collapse of the U.S and world economy begins.
2010: the year of the demon spawn: the region is attacked by many demons breaching the defenses at the pass. Many thousands killed and the region is saved by U.S soldiers stationed in the province and aided by Protectorate forces from the House of Lorraine.

2011-14: Civil disobedience ensues as shortage of food, oil and resources brought about by the attack begins to affect the region. The Governor is removed from office after protests and "isolated" from the U.S Government, town meetings throughout the province implore the House of Lorraine to assume power and create a stable system of government.
2014: Signing of the Arcadia Accord between the city/town mayors and the House of Lorraine. On Oct 20, the Princedom of Arcadia is founded. "We have not heard from federal or state authorities for 4 years." A comment made by a senior official of the court later that year. "This was one reason for creating our own independent land…to ensure a stable government for the citizens and to provide future direction for the people." The Council of Representatives is formed with citizens electing of 15 delegates as well as a new Governor whose responsibility is to resume and maintain contact with the U.S. Government. The Templar Guard that protects the House of Lorraine is expanded into a military force with former U.S military personnel wishing to remain as citizens. Those U.S military personnel wishing to return to their homes leave on the USS Faraday. The new defense organization becomes known as the Protectorate Defense Force (PDF). The rebuilding of the Princedom begins with assistance from the Canadian Federation.
2014-2018: Construction of the shield walls to guard both passes, assisted by engineers from the Canadian Federation. The Prince proclaims the reason for the shield walls is to protect the independence of the Princedom and the rights of its citizens from corrupt political and corporate forces that "Has undermined the United States government and also to protect from the possibility of another attack from the demon spawn." Mention is made of independent governments forming in New Hampshire and Maine.
2022: the House of Lorraine invests considerable wealth into arming the PDF with military equipment/hardware from the Canadian Federation, Europe and the UK and also into infrastructure of the 3 regions.
2028: Governor Michael Harding meets with two representatives from the U.S. Government. In an interview one representative informs that the U.S is recovering from "great hardship" and the President, Cynthia Myers, has accepted the Arcadia Accord. Trade deals are negotiated as well as a means of communication between the Governor and U.S government.
2036: Fishermen discover beyond the shoreline at the 14 mile mark, a permanent grey mist that sits there unmoving that begins where the mountains meet the sea in the north and extends out 14 miles then south before extending to the southern shoreline at the mountain border. Those that investigate do not return. The Archbishop of New Providence proclaims the mist is a creation from the Lord "…to protect the souls within from demonic and corrupt powers that exist in the world outside."
2042: The Canadian Federation establishes a consulate in New Providence and begins importing goods and equipment, arriving on merchant ships on the 21st of each month.
2050: The Governor meets a delegation from BAMA (Boston Atlantic Metropolitan Axis) and trade deals are signed, to improve public transport and replacing of aged vehicles and increasing inventory of spare parts.
2051: The Canadian Federation deploys by a carrier battle group, two infantry/mechanized divisions of military personnel to assist the PDF in defending its borders including the Shield Walls 1 &2. This deployment is replaced every 18 months.
2056-61: Building and expansion of Camp Pendleton and Fort Marsden to accommodate the arrival of the Canadian divisions and increased recruits to the PDF.

2081: Arcadia University celebrates it’s 850th year since the founding of the institution as a school of the ancient mysteries and wisdom. The royal family, De Lorraine, who founded the Princedom as well as the university so long ago opens 3 new libraries including a religious library at the famous St Magdalane that dominates the eastern foreshore of Arcadia Isle, where the university is located. The student and faculty numbers have swelled from 10,000 to 19,000 in the last 40 years, with growing numbers arriving from the Canadian Federation for esoteric, philosophy and theology studies.
2085: OMICRON, the most powerful corporation in the Princedom founds five new medical and geological research facilities at the newly constructed Humane Futures Research Institute. The institute is owned by the Hartford and Winchester families, two of the Hierarch families.
2086-2090: The PDF undergoes major re equipment programme with new aircraft, naval vessels, and armoured vehicles to supplement rebuilding of defense and coastal facilities. BAMA defense contractor, Lockheed Martin and Argyle Naval Systems are contracted to replace the aged coastal vessels, aircraft and helicopters.
2086: First recorded incident, but not known publicly, of a possible supernatural nature at the Arcadia University. The Interconnectivity Agreement is signed by the Council of Representatives and the Prince. This paves the way for Interconnection of public computer systems to home computer users. The system becomes known as the Internet.
2088: Farmers at Twin Forks and New Mission report mutilations of livestock…rumours of supernatural forces at work surface in the media.
2090: On May 16, 21, 25, 27, citizens at Arnhem and fishermen out at sea see strange lights in 8 triangular patterns flying in a V formation over head at great speed. Each of the witnesses report no sound and pictures taken are handed to the police. One photograph does make the cover of the Arnhem Gazette.
