I don't have a problem moving forward in time instead of backwards as long as we can come up with a reasonable history to build out of it.  My biggest problem with another meteor strike is that the first one already strained credibility and I think that a second one is just going too far.  Can you come up with some other sort of reasonable-sounding calamity that can still happen well after the first strike and leave all the players and factions starting off on a relatively even footing?
That is the whole reason I have it i hit the B&F city Directly.  It is a sign from the OTG.  It instantly gives them tons of credibility with the masses.   The fact that they are wiped out makes the Banner that much more fanatical.  Makes all the Heretics and old gods people hide in fear.   Gives much greater reasoning of the hidden and secret nature of the CODO
Having a big "sign" like that from the OTG sounds like it would effectively eliminate the worship of any other God.  The reason there are multiple Gods to worship is in part because there's no irrefutable evidence for any of them, thus allowing contentious arguments to arise.  If nothing else, if the OTG strikes down one religion then who's to say all the others aren't in obvious extreme peril as well, and how do you get adherents in that situation?

It sounds rather unsustainable to me, rather like having "religions" for and against the fact that gravity works.  How can the "against" religion convince anyone of their beliefs?
