Sex Mage World: Crossover Timeline

SEX MAGE WORLD
CROSSOVER TIMELINE

Updated: Over the years, I ended up adding all sort of ridiculous science-fantasy schlock concepts to the Sex Mage World, mainly in the various ways that it crossed over with my other erotica settings. This is no longer canon, as it pulled the Sex Mage World too far away from what was supposed to be the point of the setting. Nonetheless, I did end up putting a good amount of thought and brainstorming behind this, and most of the stories I’ve written that hint to a bigger continuity used to follow this one’s logic.

I suppose in the greater Sex Mage Multiverse, this could still be canon in that old DC Comics Earth 1/Earth 2 sort of way. Or maybe this Timeline actually describes a work of fiction within the Sex Mage World itself, perhaps a TV show or comic book that attempts to add superhero elements to their world while still factoring in the magic. Either way, though, it’s no longer a timeline I wish to pursue.

Pre-Sex Magic History

Prior to the appearance of Sex Magic, the history of Earth in the SMW almost exactly mirrors our own in terms of the formation of cultures and countries. The exact dates of certain major events may have shifted, or certain people may have risen into powerful positions instead of others, but by and large, these differences are but minor details in the wide tapestry of human history.

As far as humanity as a whole is concerned, however, there is no hard evidence that any form of magic or psychic powers actually existed prior to Sex Magic appearing. Although the appearance of Sex Magic would indicate magic and psychic phenomenon were previously possible, never before had such things been documented, proven, and accepted to such an irrefutable degree as Sex Magic. Ergo, for all intents and purposes, Sex Magic is the first true supernatural phenomenon to occur on Earth. As such, its influence causes the history of that Earth to radically diverge from the world we will experience.

However, it is worth noting that humanity is not, in fact, alone in this universe. Extra-dimensional and extra-terrestrial worlds and entities do exist. They just don’t know about Earth, or vice versa, and even if they did, almost none have any way of reaching or contacting it. There are, of course, a couple of exceptions:

The Fae Realm
The biggest notable exception are the Fae, ethereal beings from the formless reality of raw quantum potential known by some as the Fae Realm. For extremely brief fragments of time, Fae creatures have managed to penetrate the dimensional barriers around Earth, mostly to observe, but occasionally to manifest as strange creatures. Attracted by the dreams and imagination of sapient life, they took forms based on the myths of humanity, and for a time re-enforced those myths through brief, often impossible to confirm sightings.

Earth’s connection to the Fae Realm is so weak and tenuous, however, that the Fae ultimately had extremely little impact on the world, so little that modern humans regard them as purely fiction. The main impact of Fae visitations involved abductions of humans, usually one at a time, but sometimes entire small populations were taken. Despite this, no physical evidence of Fae interaction can be found. Many of history’s unexplained disappearances are due to Fae abduction. Many such abductees have been used to populate the Centurions Universe Realm.

Nearly 50,000 years ago, an entire population of a human sub-species was stolen from Earth by the Fae. No evidence of their existence remains, but like Neanderthals and Denisovans, they were a sub-species of humans, just one of dozens that, presumably, went extinct after the rise of modern Homo Sapiens.

These humans were transported to the magically-rich planet of Civero, as part of a long-term Fae Lord project. However, this occurred so long ago that no one in existence is aware of this connection. The Fae Lords who started the project are long deceased, the Maji were never aware of it, and modern humans haven’t any clue, the magical alteration of whole species and geography making any reasonable attempts at accurate archeology impossible.

Temael
Temael is a radically different entity to any of the Fae, a Dark God that is a Living Dimension unto itself. Whilst incapable of entering the normal universe directly, Temael can send beings and magical influence across dimensions. Temael desires to collect worlds from this and other universes, literally drawing whole planets into Himself, setting them up in customized solar systems, and elevating the species that pledged loyalty to Him.

One reason humanity hasn’t managed to contact alien life? Temael has stolen nearly every planet in the galaxy holding a sapient species, often before any civilization reaches appreciable long-distance space faring capabilities. It is unknown just how many worlds have been stripped from the universe to satiate His avarice, but He has stolen a galaxy’s worth of stars to support them all.

Earth is next on His list.


50,000 B.C.Homo sapiens noa, an unknown human sub-species, are stolen from Earth by a collective of Fae Lords and transported to the magically rich planet of Civero. No trace of their existence remains, and no one on Civero is aware of their connection to Earth.

20,000 B.C. – Jahi surrenders her planet of Hellacia to Temael.

900 A.D. – The Dark War occurs on Civero, begun when Echidna, Herald of Temael, convinces the rogue Maji Zane to betrays his fellows on behalf of humanity. During the War, Jahi is banished the Centurions Universe Realm.

1943 - 1990 A.D. – Fae Lords observing superhero fiction on Earth decide to create their own superhero universe in the form of the Centurions Universe Realm.

2005 A.D.Zane, Archangel of Temael, appears on Earth. Under various guises, he influences the creation of several different Cults, predicting a time of great civil unrest, where spiritual answers will save humanity from themselves.


THE GODDESS ERA

0 G.E. / 2010 A.D. – Sometime between March 29 and April 6, Sex Magic appears on Earth, courtesy of Zane. First appearing in New York City, USA, the magic spread to every woman on the globe within three months time. During this period, thousands of women were independently discovering and refining the many abilities of Sex Magic, so it’s impossible to tell where certain techniques may have originated.

By the end of July, the Revolutions have begun in the Middle East. By the end of November, smaller Revolutions have cropped up throughout parts of Asia, Africa, and South America. In other countries, female criminals use their magic to break out of prisons, causing riots and a rash of crime sprees. Many multi-national corporations suffer as the result of takeovers and power plays.

Foreign aid is unavailable to any nations as all countries deal with mass shifting of positions of power and the fallout therein, and must deal with their own civil unrest. Massive numbers of suicides, murder sprees, riots, and terrorist attacks break out in parts of the world as the year stretches on. Aside from Revolutions, small scale ideological wars break out in less developed countries.

The borders of many nations are sealed in a failed effort to contain the spread of the magic. By the end of July, nearly the entire world has been empowered by Sex Magic, save for extremely isolated communities. Such communities are sought out and entered by empowered women to ensure the magic’s spread, and by the end of the year, it is assumed that all have become empowered.

Between the many outbreaks of violence, the destabilizing of many corporations, and the sealing of borders, the global economy destabilizes severely. Over the course of the next decade, 1.5 billion lives are lost as a direct or indirect result of Sex Magic’s appearance. Almost a full third of these are lost within the first year.


1 G.E. / 2011 A.D. – Most Revolutions have died down by the end of January. Numerous terrorist organizations have been dismantled and new female lead regimes have formed, but many countries still keep their borders closed to control continuing civil unrest. The global economy maintains a precarious stability.

By the end of December, people note the sudden radical decrease in birth rates around the world. This leads to the theory that Sex Magic grants women subconscious perfect birth control. From this point forward, every adult pregnancy only occurs if it is deliberate. Due to the many misgivings over having children whilst Sex Magic runs rampant, the birth rate stays low, even in countries where having many children is a culture value.


2 G.E. / 2012 A.D. – The Cults begin to take root and expand in membership as those still unable to deal with the magic, yet not willing to give into suicide or violence, turn to spiritual answers. Hundreds of new and revived spiritualities arise, most “neo-neo-pagan” in theme, even as some older religions, particularly the Judeo-Christian faiths, lose many of their worshippers. Among these converts are many atheists, who are dismayed that science completely fails to explain Sex Magic in any way.

Many nations that had not undergone Revolution maintained a majority of males in office, protected by special service women. However, many are not re-elected, with women taking over positions once the men’s terms are over. Likewise, many men in higher paid industries struggle with keeping jobs or getting new ones, as Sex Magic renders it difficult for men to be trusted in positions of power. By the end of 2012, women control the vast majority of positions of authority and business.


3 G.E. / 2013 A.D. Several long-term experiments confirm many basic facts of Sex Magic, such as the minimum age of 19, the contagious element of the magic, the use of Sex Magic healing abilities to cure previously incurable conditions and slow the aging process, the innate ability of birth control, the differences in power levels between some women, etc. Several facilities are approved to further experiment with Sex Magic on a scientific and social level.

The Tlazol Correctional Facility is founded to test extreme methods of effectively brainwashing large numbers of highly resistant men to be more accepting of subservience to women, then released back into the public. The hope is that a more docile and compliant male population will lessen the amount of civil unrest, and re-stabilize society. The facility also serves as prison for the worst of male criminals.

The Pandora Research Facility is founded, attempting to blend magic and science in the pursuit of creating new technologies, medical advances, and seeking an explanation for how the magic works. Virtually all experiments result in dead ends, save for some success at cloning and genetic manipulation procedures.

The Paranormal Investigations Bureau is founded, with similar organizations forming world wide, in an attempt to discover if other forms of magic work. The intent is to keep this study separate from relations with the Cults, but most of these organizations become linked with Cult activity, compromising the integrity of their research, and breaking up the organization within a couple years.


4 G.E. / 2014 A.D. – Contact with the Centurions Universe Realm is made. Four superheroes of the Centurions Sigma Team appear on Earth, are briefly captured, but manage to escape back home. After this encounter, Commander Gennedy DeVray begins to investigate similar possible events of supernatural and extra dimensional incursions onto Earth.


5 G.E. / 2015 A.D. Metis Academy is founded, officially as a social experiment to simulate and predict the outcome of a hyper-femdom society. Secretly, the Academy is also used to test the viability of creating an enhanced generation of Sex Mages.

Close to the end of the year, Devika Sai becomes the first Megami, and makes contact with the demon-goddess Jahi. This results in the cataclysmic First Cascade Event that nearly wipes out all human life throughout Afro-Eurasia. Jahi uses her powers to halt and undo the damage of this event, erasing most peoples memories of it. She then leaves Earth, but not after informing Devika that Sex Magic was created by a modification of her own sexual curse spells. Jahi didn’t bring Sex Magic to Earth, but someone did.

Devika seeks help in preparing for a possible incoming invasion. She very quickly connects with Commander DeVray, and together, they begin to assemble the Special Task Force.


6 G.E. / 2016 A.D. – As a result of the First Cascade Event, several thousand women are boosted or triggered into Megami level power. Early 2016 marks the first public acknowledgement of their existence. The current power ranking scale of Sex Mages is officially acknowledged, with Standard, Archmage, Megami, and Glitch rankings.

Initially, many Megami are slow to accept the responsibility of their powers, but over the course of the next few years, many start to elevate into positions of power in business, government, and among the Cults.


7 G.E. / 2017 A.D. – A societal migration slowly begins, with people moving to smaller communities, where more like-minded individuals coalesce, as a means of mitigating conflicts brought on by the ideological differences in magic use among the populace. This trend leads to towns where the majority of women have the same approach to the magic, whether used for kindness or cruelty.

Nonetheless, large cities and their suburbs still maintain a large portion of the population, as much to keep industry and services running, as anything else.


8 G.E. / 2018 A.D. – The global economy begins to re-stabilize, and civil unrest dies down as countries manage to get used to Sex Magic’s presence. The Lust Energy Dynamo is invented by the Pandora Facility, with the hopes that this new technology will help supplement the energy needs of various nations, easing the potential crisis brought on by strained trade relations. However, the technology is dependent on certain Special Abilities that most women do not have, and thus do not see wide-scale production. Still, a hard push towards solar power and electric vehicles helps ease the strain of fossil fuel dependency.


9 G.E. / 2019 A.D. – The first Sex Magic-powered space missions are performed, with miniaturized crews carried in special small-scale facilities by Megami, who physically fly them through space. After two successful short-term test runs are performed on the Moon, a mission to Mars is sent to make an indefinite colony, overseen by three Megami.

Just as it seems that human societies have reached a new equilibrium, Zane returns to Earth, and prepares the Cults for the “Prophesized Battle.”


10 G.E. / 2020 A.D. – The Cult Wars occur throughout the world. Hundreds of seemingly independent Cults break out into fierce skirmishes, fighting one another in a supposed Holy War, many following what they claim to be a prophesy. Armies and National Guard are brought in to contain the situation, but the violence also causes a global outbreak of riots and rebellions. As the battles take place in major cities, civilian casualties and collateral damage are enormous. Even as some skirmishes and riots are suppressed, more continue to break out elsewhere.

Nearly every Archmage and Megami in the world are forced into the conflict, some Megami leading the cults, others simply defending their nations, others grasping at opportunities for power. In the end, the Cults are nearly wiped out, and the War brought to an end, but not before the death toll is nearly doubled from the last ten years. By the end of the Wars, nearly three billion human lives are lost due in some way to Sex Magic. With the massively declined birth rate, only four billion humans remain.

During this time, the Special Task Force encounters Zane for the first time, as the archangel uses the massive death toll as part of the ritual to summon Temael. Devika Sai sacrifices herself to destroy the portal and end the ritual prematurely, stalling Zane’s plans. Zane retreats from the fight, to set up his next attempt. The battle, however, results in the formation of the Terror Zone over the remains of North Korea.


11 G.E. – Following the devastation of the Cult Wars, the Megami decide the only way to save society is to conquer the world. The Megami divide up and take over territories, eliminating the old geo-political landscape, and creating the Queendoms. With the global community in ruins, and many countries on the brink of collapse, there is very little resistance to this plan. With this accomplished, the Goddess Era calendar is retroactively applied.

The ruling Megami accept worship and tributes from their subjects in exchange for keeping the peace. The devotion of thousands or even millions of subjects causes the Queen Megami’s powers to reach even higher levels, making them literal living goddesses worshipped by their people. The Queens maintain an iron-clad dictatorship over their subjects, knowing that something like the Cult Wars can never be allowed to happen again.

Most Queendoms maintain an isolationist policy, completely sealing their borders. In many cases, this includes the internet, with most Queendoms either entirely locking out access to data from other countries, or allowing only minimal contact. Some resume tenuous international and trade relations, but by and large all Queendoms are completely independent, and no longer subject to the influence of global organizations.

Technological development largely stalls or even downgrades in some countries, and the new nations become more dependent on the Magic for medical, energy, and military resources. Greater and more frequent use of magic leads to women on average becoming slowly stronger in base power level.


12 G.E. – The mystical fallout of the Cult Wars has resulted in a weakening of the dimensional barriers around Earth. To the dismay of the Queens and the Special Task Force, several entities and forces from other dimensions begin to leak into the world. For now, such outbreaks are relatively small and contained, and lack of communication between Queendoms means most of the world remains completely unaware of this.

During one of these incursions, Doctor Genesis, a Centurions Universe supervillain, conquers the former Hawaii, kicks out its Queen, and creates a force field to shield his nation using mad science devices.


13 G.E. – The first large-scale Lust Energy Dynamo Power Plants come online, greatly mitigating the energy crisis some Queendoms are dealing with. Along with previously established solar and electric technologies, fossil fuel-dependent technologies are rendered nearly obsolete, save for large-scale shipping needs. Many Queendoms follow suit in adapting the LEDs.

Long-term studies of Sex Magic health effects lead medical professionals to posit that Sex Magic could potentially be an avenue of immortality. This is considered worth embracing, due to the near halving of the human population, and the drastic reduction of new births.

By this time, nearly 80% of new births are male. Some speculate that this is a subconscious desire from women, or possibly indirect influence from the Queens, to bolster the amount of men as a resource, reduce competition among women, and to further empower women as more men per woman means an overall excess of available energy, further increasing women’s power.


14 G.E. – The Pandora Research Facility creates the first life form purely through Sex Magic. This results in a female humanoid entity called "the Created." This proves to be a disaster, as the Created demonstrates Sex Magic abilities at Megami levels and can easily breach other women's immunity to Sex Magic. The Created, despite being telepathically fed information and common knowledge to hasten her mental development, lacks morality, and proceeds to use her own Sex Magic powers to experiment with everyone in the facility, knocking all staff and test subjects into irreversible comas. She then proceeds to walk towards nearby towns and unleashed the Second Cascade Event, threatening to wipe out all life in the Americas.

A joint effort by several Megami and the Special Task Force manages to stop the Created, with the Megami hauling her off to the Moon, where she dies and disintegrates from a lack of Lust Energy. Back on Earth, the Special Task Force use a massive barrage of missile strikes to kill those affected by the Cascade Event, barely preventing it from spreading out of control. This creates the Blasted Zone, and the old Pandora Facility is scrapped and rebuilt into a maximum security prison for the worst of female criminals.

Future experiments to expand uses of the magic beyond immediate service to society are officially outlawed in all Queendoms, though some continue researching in secret.


15 G.E. – The Special Task Force is nearly all killed by the insane Queen Kazyr, who sought revenge for the destruction of her country during the Second Cascade Event. The STF are reduced to only four members before Kazyr is finally driven off by sudden assistance from Dr. Genesis, who ensares the surviving STF into a devil’s bargain.

Desperate to recover her forces, Commander DeVray illegally creates Project: Centurion, using Pandora research. Cloning tech from Dr. Genesis, and the DNA of the four Centurion superheroes to create superhuman clones. Only one subject, Rika, is successfully created, before the project is shut down. Gennedy is incarcerated for crimes against humanity.


19 G.E. – The first generation to grow up entirely in a Sex Mage World obtain their powers. This new generation fully embraces Sex Magic and female dominance, to a greater degree than previous generations. Moreover, this generation seems even more powerful on average than any that came before. While no further Megami seem to ever appear, all generations after this are closer to Archmage levels, even if they lack higher-level spells, and Glitches are almost unheard of.

This is also the first recorded appearance of a Radiant, a man who produces far more energy than most men. Almost immediately, every Queendom enacts procedures to locate and snatch up any Radiant that appears, resulting in almost all of them being horded by the government or powerful independent Megami.



20 G.E. –The Apocalypse. The Archangel Zane makes his second push to bring Earth into Temael. He forms the Death Spirit Men, a small army of males abused by Sex Mages to the point of insanity, to be his troops on Earth. Granted immense powers through Temaelian Magic, the Death Spirit Men enact massacres rivaling the worst of the Cult Wars, annihilating entire Queendoms. In the end, Gennedy DeVray, who had been released from custody to deal with the problem, realizes the only way to spare the Earth of further destruction is to surrender to Temael. A few agents refuse to give in, but can do nothing to stop Earth from being taken. Zane spares their lives, leaving them behind to join the Sex Mage colony on Mars.
