In the WAAPT universe (er, multiverse), things happen. So it is probable that your character knows or has heard about some of them, or he/she is even indirectly or directly affected by notable plots that have happened.

This is a listing in construction of notable events that comprise the WAAPT lore's background. It is also intended for newcomers to check their character's background against and avoid entering interaction in the main roleplay as a "blank slate".


This page is (temporarily?) sorted by region and deals primarily with events in the Original Timeline unless otherwise noted.

(To be done: provide links to relevant posts where adequate for people to read about events of their interest)
