The Meteor Shower ravaged the earth at midnight on January 1st 2016. It was the beginning of an oncoming war.
When winter hit the year of the meteor shower the land had been picked of all it's resources. Game was scarce and with the bitter cold came the death of the plants. With the impending famine coming the humans began fighting amongst themselves for control of the food sources.
March 14th is the day that the Vampires and the Werewolves set aside their differences and decided to rise up against the human who had long suppressed them.
The war of 2018 was only a five month affair. The Vampires and the Werewolves made quick work of over throwing the human's rule on the land. By December of that year the war was over and the supernaturals had taken charge of everything, forcing the humans into concentration camps.
When the witches realized that the vampires and the werewolves were going to succeed in their endeavors they immediately pulled themselves and their families out of what came to be known as Hawthorne and relocated to an island off the coast which was spelled to only allow witches to step on the lands.
In July of 2019 a group of survivors that had escaped the fate of the other humans met up in the rocky mountains of Colorado. They traveled together south to Pueblo where they made their home and brought any other survivors they found. It would come to be a very large resistance that would eventually start to rebel against the Supernaturals.
Eventually a second village formed in Nuvier's Northern Barren Lands. Much smaller than Pueblo's resistance is Veritas, but strong and willing nonetheless.
