Ector's Suspicions

The Announcement

in 1891, at the appointed hour of 10AM, troops from all the surrounding states begin moving into Kansas, and the Union forces in Kansas City and Concordia begin marching on Topeka. 'Sockless' Jerry Simpson and the Farmers Council receive desperate cries for help from all four sides of the state. Simpson had been fairly confident in the ability of his people to fight off the Union soldiers, but the news of their collapse all across the borders frightened even him. They ordered all their border guards to withdraw, and were answered with large-scale defections – most of the volunteers guarded the borders because they lived there, and they didn't want to abandon their homes.

in 1999, Prime Minister Kay Ector reports to Queen Gwen that the last few providers of arms and supplies to the vestiges of the Central European Empire have agreed to cut off their former allies. “Congratulations, Sir Kay,” she says to him. “Your success has brought us victory in this great struggle, just as much as those fighting on the battlefield. We salute you. We would make you a lord, but then you could no longer be our prime minister.” The assembled court chuckled at the queen's little joke, but Ector felt decidedly uncomfortable. He had seen the secret reports that a few dedicated royal servants had gathered for him; the king's drug use, the suspicious circumstances of Dr. Mordred's death, the queen's closeness to Sir Lance – all of these little facts, capped by King Arthur's coma, added up to something decidedly ugly about Her Majesty. Prime Minister Ector was already formulating a plan to depose her, should that become necessary.

In 2003, Cal Griffin remembered his dream of chaos; voices screamed for him to strike. Griffin raised the bejewelled sword high and rammed it between the Corporation President's wings. The Magic Time was over.

In 1945, General-san Douglas MacArthur led a peace and reconciliation mission to the devastated city of Tokyo. Prayer vigils were held for the victims of the atomic bomb. Shortly after dawn, some happened that would change the world forever. Something wonderful.

In 1760, the once great continent of Europe has been depopulated by the plague known as the Red Death. But a very few survivors of the Caucasian race remain, including the seven current stowaways on a Chinese Junk and an Arab Dhow. Coincidentally both merchant vessels have a convergent trajectory in the Atlantic Ocean. The ..

This ground breaking decision will of course yield plentiful new copy for the next installment of his auto-biography. And he can get a bit of peace and quiet to enjoy the World Series again. Its a re-run of course, no one has played baseball or indeed any other sport since life was extirpated above ground by the nuclear confrontation which started with North Korea.

In 1940, British Prime Minister Oswald Mosley and King Edward VIII tried hard .. Erwin Rommel

Across the English Channel, German forces under General Erwin Rommel are executing advanced plans for the D-Day Landings on the South Coast of England. Closer to home and potentially more unsavoury, Aleister Crowley aka “The Beast”, “The Man We Would Most Like to Hang” and "The Wickedest Man In the World” inter alia had proposed a repulsion plan which you could rightly describe as unorthodox. To say the very least. The British Heads of State and Government were struggling to work out which of the two threats are forcing them to drink and smoke so excessively.
