no, Horrors are from another planet/plane of existence, and create astral
bridges when the magic level on a planet is high enough to support their
life...they are not traveling through time, but are just longlived (like
Harlequin) and have been waiting for the magic to rise again...
this brings up an interesting point that no-one seems to have brought up
yet...if the magic level is rising, shouldn't more and more people become
magically active? maybe shadowrunners can start to develop special innate
magical powers like earthdawn characters have based on character class.
also, maybe spells, with strong astral backing, are becoming more powerful,
and that mage who used to cast a force 6 fireball is finding that the astral
energy is becoming more powerful, and he has to figure drain as if the spell
were force 7 or 8? maybe mages will have to move towards thread weaving and
astral spell matrices so that they won't burn themselves out with the
increase in magical energy in the world...
just some idle thoughts...
