CORE: Crystallis Rising
Important Dates and Events
“The world of CORE: Crystallis Rising takes place on Earth in the year 2011. However, it is not the same Earth that many of us are used to. In the year 1957, the people of Earth uncovered one of the greatest myths and fables: the discovery of the underwater city of Atlantis. Inside were vast manuscripts filled with powerful secrets and technology. Fifty-four years later, the world that men live in is filled with anti-gravity vehicles that soar through the skies, colossal starships that traverse our star system, and psychic and supernatural abilities that lay at the command of men. Below is a timeline or important of interesting events that shaped the world to its current state.”
1957 USSR and US Halt Launch ICBMs
In late 1957, both the United States and the USSR called a cease-launch on the Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles project due to the global shock of the discovery of the ancient city of Atlantis.
1959 X-27AT Makes First Flight
The “X-27AT Rocket” Aircraft made its first flight from an original B-52 Bomber in 1959. The plane set many speed records, obtaining a top speed of Mach 10. The X-27AT was used to test many concepts used in later space programs.
1962 Ata-Explorer Chi-I Launched
On January 31, the US, China, and Germany put their first collective project-the first satellite based off of Atlantean technology, “Ata-Explorer Chi-I,” into orbit around the earth. It was the most powerful and ultra-sensitive satellite to date.
1963 USS Enterprise NC01 Launched
The USS Enterprise NC01 was the first aircraft carrier to be powered by crude experiments of fusion technology. The fusion reactors freed the Enterprise from the need for refueling.
On December 27th, the Atlantean Military Technology Armament Corporation was founded by Nobel Prize winning physics scientist Donald A. Glaser and Vice Chief of Staff, U.S. Army, Creighton W. Abrams Jr.
1976 The Mind’s Eye
In-depth Atlantean analysis of ancient manuscripts reveal deep psychological study by the Atlanteans. Once translated, mankind discovered techniques to harness latent psychic abilities through Atlantean regiments and medicine.
1978 A New Era
President Jimmy Carter officially declares the Information Age over and leads world technology into what was then called the Fusion Age as 78% of global technology was functioning with fusion-energy based science.
1980 The Triad
The Californian cities of San Francisco, San Jose, and Oakland form one unified city-thus renaming the city Triopolis. The original metropolitan city names are used as the names for the three main sectors of the city instead.
1985 Arcanum, Divininus
Further discovery of Atlantean text reveals methods of homosapiens controlling atoms to their will. Thus, “magic” become a legal term and many institutes and schools started to emerge; offering a safe and educational place where gifted and/or interested individuals could develop their powers. Many of the institues were government controlled and funded.
1988 Luna Soleis
The first colony on the Moon becomes a city named Luna Soleis (or Luna to the locals). Transit between Earth and the Moon becomes commonplace, and interplanetary spaceports start to emerge in the transportation market.
1992 Dreams of Flight without Wings
With the successful discovery of gravity induction and mass reactors, Japanese Prime Minister Kiichi Miyazawa declares the world into the Gravity Age. Most of modern technology then relied on the phenomenon first set forth in Einstein’s Theory of Special Relativity. The creation of gravity inducers allowed the human race to manipulate personal and external gravity.
1999 Mankind’s Elite
The first of AMTAC’s S.T.R.I.D.E.R. (Special Tactics and Reconnaissance and Information Detection Regiment) squadrons became active. These elite specialist group of selected individuals came from various backgrounds, nationalities, and faiths. Much controversy arose due to the S.T.R.I.D.E.R.’s ability to act without restraint above the law if need be.
2004 Hello, Adri-N
The first jump gate, Adri-N, was deemed a complete success. Travel to (but not back from) Mars was shortened to a matter of hours. Later, in 2008, a sister jump gate was created (called Adri-X) which allowed the beginning of colonization on Mars.
2008 One World
AMTAC’s influence and global real estate reaches an all time high as over 88% of the world’s technology, military armaments, and medicine are of AMTAC license.
