Sex Mage World: Early Timeline

SEX MAGE WORLD
TIMELINE OF SIGNIFICANT EVENTS

Updated Again: I first put this together a few years ago, in my first real attempt to hammer down a continuity for the setting of the Sex Mage World. Concepts have developed further since then, with new ideas along with expansions and clarifications of older ones. I figured this was due for an overhaul. This is still somewhat incomplete, and subject to further revision.

This latest update follows a new canon that decisively removes most of the connecting events and characters to my other worlds like Civero and the Centurions, since while I like the idea of such a meta-continuity, I also think the Sex Mage World should stand on its own, and if I just add more ridiculous elements like demon gods and space wizards, it distracts too much from the SMW setting. Plus, I still like the idea of a variable continuity, with the origins and endings being up to interpretation.

Ergo, these are the major, Sex Magic specific events of the timeline, from the Magic’s first appearance, to the point at which the future diverges heavily depending on what ending you opt to go with.


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.


THE GODDESS ERA

0 G.E. / 2010 A.D. – Sometime between August 29 and September 6, Sex Magic appears on Earth. 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 September, 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 haphazard restructuring of many corporations, and the sealing of borders, the global economy destabilizes severely.


1 G.E. / 2011 A.D. – Most Revolutions have died down by the end of January. Numerous terrorist organizations and rebel factions 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 balance as some trade resumes, and more stable countries offer some relief aid.

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 cultural value.


2 G.E. / 2012 A.D. – Some minor cults and new religious sects form 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 in government 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 in Brazil 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 in the United States, 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 in the United States, with similar organizations forming world wide, in an attempt to discover if other forms of magic work. The results are frustratingly negative.

Later this year, Super Power Wrestling is also established in Mexico.


4 G.E. / 2014 A.D. – The first official Boy Boarding League is formed.

The Lust Energy Dynamo is invented by the Pandora Research 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 still inefficient, and depends on certain magic techniques that most women do not have mastery over, 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.


5 G.E. / 2015 A.D. Metis Academy is founded in Canada as an experiment to see if girls can be boosted and trained into Archmages using an extreme femdom society simulation. This also serves to test the psychological effects of such a scenario.

The global economy begins to re-stabilize, and civil unrest dies down as countries manage to get used to Sex Magic’s presence.


6 G.E. / 2016 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 retain a sizable portion of the population, as much to keep industry and services running, as anything else.


8 G.E. / 2018 A.D. – 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 increase in solar and electric technologies, fossil fuel-dependent technologies are rendered nearly obsolete, save for large-scale shipping needs. Many nations 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 pseudo-immortality. This is considered worth embracing, due to continued conflicts and hardships around the world, and the drastic reduction of new births causing a slow, but steady decline in the overall human population.


10 G.E. / 2020 A.D. – 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 initiates the Cascade Event, threatening to wipe out all human life as she induces a hyper-charged arousal wave that infects and spreads from man to woman to man via their connections through Sex Magic. This locks most of the population of the planet into a comatose state. The Created then begins to feed upon the energies of whole towns as she walks across North America. Deprived of the Magic healing them, but left comatose, whole towns die in the wake of the Created’s passing, not to mention millions dying in accidents as they are knocked unconscious by the Cascade.

The Cascade lasts for nearly a week, but during this time, several dozen women find themselves transformed by the energies of the Cascade, awakening to new levels of power magnitudes beyond those of other women. These women later become known as the Megami. These survivors quickly group together, figure out what’s happening, and use their combined might to confront the Created and attempt to reverse the Cascade.

Realizing the Created actually needs constant Lust Energy to survive, several Megami fly her into space, throwing her into the Moon, where she disintegrates. From there, the Megami manage to awaken the surviving population of Earth. Most people don’t remember much about the Event, just their own highly eroticized dreams, but the impact of the disaster is impossible to ignore: Only three billion humans remain.


11 G.E. – Following the devastation of the Cascade Event, 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.

Most Queendoms maintain an isolationist policy, completely sealing their borders through the use of Tease Zone Barriers and sheer distance. 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 such as multi-national corporations.

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.

Despite this, the populations of the Queendoms are strictly controlled, both for the sake of managing limited resources, and the hope that smaller, more segregated populations will prevent anything like another Cascade from happening again.

The Pact of Non-Interference is formed to ensure the Megami remain autonomous. Populations, once settled, are effectively locked in. Only very tiny, isolated communities exist outside of Queendoms, only the barest of trade exists between certain Queendoms.


15 G.E. – Despite their best efforts, resource wars break out between some Queendoms.

This prompts a trio of Queens to attempt off-world colonization projects, using miniaturized crews carried in special small-scale facilities, carried through space by Megami astronauts. Successful temporary colonies are formed on the Moon and Mars.


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 appear for quite some time, all generations after this are closer to Archmage levels, even if they lack higher-level spells, and Glitches are almost unheard of. Men, likewise, become able to produce higher levels of Lust Energy.


The Future – As the years go on, society slowly evolves to one where men exist purely as pets, playthings, and resources for Sex Mage women. Less and less women are born, as they are able to use Magic to live indefinitely, and prefer to create more men to ensure a surplus of magical power.

At some distant point, perhaps centuries later, humanity has become almost unrecognizable. The Megami have become nigh-immortal Goddesses, many partially

existing in inhuman forms, with populations of shrunken men and servant women living inside them in fantastical organic environments. Many such Megami have left Earth and now fly freely through space, possibly seeding alien planets with new life, or spreading the power of Sex Magic to alien civilizations.
