Crucible

“There is a moderate degree of consensus, with many – but not a majority – agreeing that the period of approximately 1550-1565 was some form of Crucible. The Europeans encountering this phenomenon, the alignment of mystical forces to prompt rapid action, even among the normally stagnant kindred, didn’t understand it well enough to document it though, so there is no way to be certain at this point.”
