Read the description below and leave your thoughts, concerns and expressions of interest below, if you would be so kind. At the beginning of the 21st century, technology appeared that changed the status of magic from fantasy to reality. Of course, through history, elite organisations have been known to use a crude but potent form of Ancient Magic, such as the Shinobi, and the Mayans. The issue with this magic though was that it was highly unpredictable and volatile and required decades of training to master. Magic was made possible to the general masses once it was discovered that magic works in a very mathematical way. Each spell consists of 2 components – the Activation Sequence, and the Magic building Sequence. The Activation sequence defines most of the spell's base principles, while the Magic building Sequence constructs the spell and adds the more precise details. Previously, the Activation sequence was an incredibly complex step which only the greatest minds could master. Fortunately, the Activation sequence is a binary process, meaning it can be replicated by technology. The Magic building Sequence is dependent on the user's skill level, rather than mathematical ability. With the exception of those wielding Ancient and Spirit magic, magicians use devices called CADs. These are small computers which store the Activation Sequences along with variables and can trigger these sequences through various means – pressing a button, typing in a code, occasionally even voice activation commands. They usually take the form of a bracelet-like device or a smartphone. Each CAD can usually store around 20 different activation sequences, meaning that if the user wishes to change their arsenal, they must re-program their CAD. Most CADs are generalised devices, so they are programmed to be used in multiple ways. The military generally use gun-like CADs which are specialised to 1 or 2 spells, but contain the code and variables necessary to provide incredible power to those 2 spells. A typical military device might look something like a semi-automatic machine gun with processing power capable of casting the same activation sequence 3 times in almost instant succession. These are usually combined with speed-type oscillation spells – essentially, bullets of energy that ignore armour and move at near sonic speed. A key thing to take note of is that only Activation Sequences can be run by machines – Magic building Sequences require a magician, meaning that many soldiers are still equipped with physical bullet weapons. In the current day and age, 2210, the spellcasting world is dominated by speed-type spells, leaving Ancient Magic in the dust, used only as completely untraceable ambush and assassination spells. Even taking this into consideration however, most mages develop their own style by creating their own activation and magic sequences. 90% of humans are either unable to use magic all together or are weak in comparison to the 10%. Of these elite 5%, there are the Grade 1 mages who are recognised as being exceptionally talented, and the Grade 2 mages who, while still of phenomenal ability, possess less that a half of the skill of a Grade 1. There are also 2 other devices. An incredibly rare mineral called Antinite that can only be found in very specific conditions, capable of negating spells by deconstructing the activation sequence as it's being run, and Sorcery Boosters, a highly illegal mechanism that is essentially a brain in a 2 foot cubic box that has the effect of increasing the potency of a spell. These 2 resources have caused World War 3 to break out in 2155, and lasting for 20 years, and many officials suspect that World War 4 will break out in the very near future. Additionally, many countries have turned to being dictatorships, forcing their countries into a state of dystopia in a power-crazed attempt to obtain ultimate control over the world. It is rumoured that a third device may exist – a Relic named the Philosopher’s Stone. In ages past, the stone acted as a catalyst for the conversion of base metals into gold, and it is suspected that this means that this item is capable of storing and creating Magic building Sequences. Such a resource if replicated would advance technology by several decades, and undeniably end all wars. Combining a specialised CAD, a Philosopher's Stone and a large number of Boosters, one would be quite capable of constructing machines of infinite potential. If, by using just 2 stones, a country can create a shield that can negate any attack, and a super weapon more destructive than a nuclear bomb, they would be unbeatable. The race is on. Whoever can find and decode the stone first has essentially gained control over the entire world, perhaps even the universe. At the same time, all countries are under strong bombardment from enemy forces, trying to hinder their foe's investigations. These invasions demand the full attention of the police and the military, as well as the Master Clans (the ten clans who throughout history have supplied the most powerful magicians to their countries), leaving anti-magic terrorist organisations to run amock. Chaos has descended upon all nations, while students attending Magic Academies have been left to defend the inside of their lands and search for the Stone.
