Ok here is my idea, and I would love some feedback. WARNING: Spoilers to Book 11 Turn Coat, and Book 13 Cold Days. If you have not read them, be warned. If you are a player in Sactown Blues, *STOP READING THIS IMMEDIATELY*.
Here is and idea I am mulling around for my "Sactown Blues":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaigns/sactown-blues game, set in Dresdenverse but not officially cannon.
My campaign calendar is currently set in September of 2012, and in just a few months, the Mayan Calendar will come to its conclusion. Obviously nothing perceptual will happen as far as mortals are concerned, life will go on as before (similar to events in the real world).
bq. Various astronomical alignments and numerological formulae were proposed as pertaining to this date, all unequivocally rejected by mainstream scholarship. A New Age interpretation held that the date marked the start of a period during which Earth and its inhabitants *_would undergo a positive physical or spiritual transformation_*, and that 21 December 2012 would mark the beginning of a new era.
-from "Wikipedia":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012_phenomenon - I marked the relevant statement as *_bold and italicized_* above.
What if the transformation were wholly on a supernatural level. And what if it were not so "positive"? What would this "new era" entail?
I am kicking around a few ideas, and would love to hear your ideas.
