i think thats a little under. All the indications are that FASA's
'master timeline' is mapped out far into the future on their basic
ideas about what will happen. Books seem to be written more like 4-5
ahead of those published. Obviously though they are refining as they
go, but 'H' warns about wraiths being the future all the way back in
PAE, and until we sas ED list them in the 'astral threats list Wraith-
bugs-horrors' and horrors in SR well. And the latter was only really
sorted when HB finally came out.

Best guess 2061. ok the way books are comming out, and some are here
already but there is a reason for that date in a sourcebook.

havn't read otaku yet but there are indications that if FASA decide
we don't win and put them, off for at least another 1000 years that
it is tchnology not 'the magic to hide' which will save us. Harlequin
admits 'we don't have enough magic to hide yet'. Considering the
cycle will peak after 4200AD it could be quite a while before we do
though all the 'big' magic is really pushing things along.
The veil Tir na Nog
reforestation Tir Taingire and Amazonia
those temples Atzlan.
Tibet its inside some sort of magical shield maybe even better than
the Tir na Nog's ! [but we have no more data on that]

like folks in atzlan are plain outright saying they are due. ok so
they use yet another name but...
