The 1904 World's Fair
Among the changing breeds, the war of rage, the garou’s genocide of the other were creatures, continues unabated. The other changing breeds hide among the humans and in the wild places of the Americas to escape the purge.
The Technocracy has just lost most of its female employees because they decided Marie Curie winning two nobel prizes was too much of a reality deviation. Even though she was one of their own, they tried to assassinate her. A huge number of scientists left the confederation and formed the Children of Ether, a new sect of will workers. They are currently in talks with the Tradition mages to join their fight against what was once the Order of Reason, now called the technocracy.
The fey left on Earth are threatened by the technocracy as well. With the strongest fairies still in Arcadia, long blocked from Earth, the changelings try to stay out of sight.
The ancient war between the Camarilla and Sabbat vampires is put under a shadow, for the strongest undead can feel the antedeluvians stirring.
