Historic Timeline

This is a rough timeline spanning more than a century of progress beginning with the heretical experiments of Baron Victor Von Frankenstein through Thomas Edison’s first trip to Mars in 1870, up to present day.

(Game note: much of the first part of this history is taken directly from the the Savage Worlds book Space 1889 Red Sands specifically, and the original Space 1889 game in general. If you want more detail about these origins, feel free to refer the players portions of these games, but please try to avoid “GM” level parts if you can. Some of the events in this adventure may be an adaptation of the the Red Sands adventure content.)
