1904 World's Fair
The Louisiana Purchase Exposition, also known as the 1904 World’s Fair was a public exhibition held in St. Louis, Missouri. The main attractions were the national pavillions, but many technological advances were presented at the fair as well, including air conditioning, incubators for premature infants, and many others. The Sons of Ether, then known as the Children of Ether, were primarily responsible for the technological exhibitions.
Other supernaturals from all over the world also visited the fair. The Pavillion of Fine Art, later to become the St. Louis Art Museum, was run by the Toreador, but vampires from all over the world, even Kindred of the East were present. Changing Breeds and Fey of all types attended as well.
The extreme reality deviations provoked numerous attacks by The Technocracy. The primary technological attraction was the airship competition. Children of Ether, Dragon Mages from the east, fey Knockers, and mortals alike all entered, but the race was cut short by another Technocracy attack. This resulted in a pitched battle between The Technocracy and the supernaturals of the Fair, who formed an alliance out of desperation.
