The Story So Far... A new era has begun on the world of Zethrex, known as the Magic-Industrial era. Magic has always been a part of life, but the Circle of Magi in the kingdom of Qortic were the first ones to discover new uses for it besides combat and conjuration. Now, magic is being woven into almost everything in society. New inventions previously unheard of are being created with these new discoveries. Factories powered by magical energy are being built. Technology and magic are breeding new innovations, and improving the quality of life for all.After these new discoveries, the Circle of Magi were heralded as heroes to the kingdom, and were even praised by other nations of the world as their discoveries were spread around the world. The Magi soon became drunk with their fame, and sought to garner more fame and power still. Soon, they used their intellect in the ways of magic and technology to create something that no one thought possible, the legendary Fountain of Youth. They presented it to the elderly King and Queen of Qortic, who were quick to congratulate them on yet another stunning accomplishment, and used it to stop the effect of aging. Word was quickly spread of this feat, and praise yet again was showered unto the Magi. They continued their research, trying to find the next great thing.However, it was soon discovered that the Magi had much bigger plans...Several years past by, and much of the world was well on its way into the Magic-Industrial Revolution. Soon the time again came for the King and Queen to revitalize themselves with the waters of the Fountain, but when they sought to use it once again, they discovered that it had run dry. This was the day that the Circle of Magi made their move, and easily overtook the throne. Their thirst for fame and power had driven the Magi to deceive everyone, and take control of Qortic for themselves.The Magi had developed an army of mechanical soldiers to do their bidding. Within weeks, the Qortic military had surrendered to the Magi, and they were declared rulers. But they weren't going to stop there. The Magi sought even greater power, turning their sights to the horizon. What started as a civil war was about to become a world war. They would not stop until they had all of Zethrex under their control.But even this was not the extent of their plan...In fact, it was only the beginning. The Magi believe they have found the means to make themselves into gods. To go beyond the limitations of technology and create life from nothing. To create worlds even. And that is their true ultimate goal.There is of course, a resistance to the Magi. While some of the weaker, smaller nations are declaring allegiance to the Magi, there are still those who stand against them. Many of the greater nations of Zethrex have united against the Magi, calling themselves the Alliance of Zethrex, and will stop at nothing to see them defeated.War is coming... Who, or what, will you fight for?
