The Awakening is a world-wide event that occurred in 2011 that is used to begin the start of the Sixth World; a world where Magic was returned to the world. Although the event took place over several years, even decades, many attribute it to have started - and ended - on a single date. Many scholars declare that the Awakening is still happening in the present day. It is during the Awakening that the process of Goblinization occurred and introduced the metahuman races of Orks and Trolls, however it didn't occur until a decade after the Awakening had begun.
