Vinlandian War

We're going pink for October!

The state of TIAH

October 9th, 2006

in 1117, after a century of somewhat peaceful coexistance, the Vikings and Vinlandians have a small scuffle at Moriksburg that erupts into a larger conflict. Europeans had been drifting over to Vinland since Leif Ericson's discovery of a safe passage to it the century before, and in some areas of North Vinland, they outnumbered the natives. Ericson had kept the peace during his lifetime, but with him dead, the differences between the two peoples boiled over.

in 1946, the hilarious comedy The Iceman Cometh, following the wacky misadventures of a family waiting for the iceman during a heat wave, premiered on Broadway. The author, Gene O’Neill, was hailed with a Tony for Best Comedy of 1946.

in 1972, Dr. Yvette Montclair tells Professor Karl Ainsworth and Officer Xavier Hely that the bear they have collected droppings from does seem to be a type of bear that is extinct. “In fact,” she says, “it's been extinct for nearly 30,000 years. This bear shouldn't exist.” Officer Hely agrees; “Yes, it's very wrong, indeed.” They chuckle, but Officer Hely continues, “Now, how does this help us? We have some strange cult where the members forget their membership in the daylight, an extinct bear, a national treasure with a passageway that is a chamber of horrors; what do we do with this information?” Ainsworth rested hand on Hely's shoulder and said, “We rest today, and then we pay a visit to that chamber of horrors tonight.”

in 1975, peace activist Dr. Jonas Salk of the Soviet States of America wins the Nobel Peace Prize. After retiring from his medical career, he had spent his life pursuing change in the Soviet States, and an end to its aggression towards other nations. While the award is celebrated in Europe, it is denounced by the government of America as “another capitalist reward for a counter-revolutionary.
