Civilization has managed to survive a mere shadow of what it once was. The countries and continental boundaries vanished as magic united the continents again. Pangaea, whole once more became host of three new powers which arose from the ashes of the world. What was once known as North and South America became an entire state of its own called Nexus the capital of this new State taking the name Novus Magus a place where the technology of the Americas combined with the new magic of the worlds most accomplished mages. The other power forming what was once Europe and Australia became known as Avalon taking its capital being Fortuna became a more mystical place embracing the new state of the world and casting off the technology of the past. Finally the areas of Asia, Russia, and Africa formed into Empyrea the capital being Forge.
For a while during the rebuilding of civilization peace was tense with each State trying to keep war from breaking out among the people. Tenuous alliances formed with all sides agreeing to first focus on the rebuilding and to share all discoveries of magic between the other nations. This uneasy truce lasted until the year 2017 where a small shortage of food drove all sides into a desperate war for resources. This was the first war of the Mystics. Humans fighting with powers they barely understood they had. Cursed ones formed on all sides as they succumbed to their Manifest Destiny. The term coined for when someone overuses their magic and becomes fully consumed by it. The victim takes on the living form of the spell they were casting and strongest emotion they felt at the time of corruption. The war and the effort of putting down the Cursed took a heavy toll on each State. With the end result being each side retreating within itself barring out any outside forces and restricting free travel between roads.
Nexus focused on its technology preparing for another inevitable war constructing mystic weapons such as the massive satellite that hovers above the city to this day. The satellite an SS class weapon nicknamed the Dragon’s Fang. While the other two States focused on studying the new world and the magic that now encompassed it. Avalon discovered several places along its borders that held high concentrates of Magic geysers that shot the energy straight into the sky where it filled the atmosphere. Both Avalon and Empyrea attempted to send recon teams to each site yet few have returned from such expeditions into the unknown. Those that borne the marks of Manifest beginning to take root and raved about Prophets and old gods made flesh. Only time will tell inevitably what these ravings could mean and where the final fate of the world shall ultimately become.
thoughts ideas anything welcome. This is kinda just something I threw together in a few hours with some help from King and Wynn. Could still use some work I think but figured I'd share and see if anyone would get interested in it
