It is very important that those wishing to play are aware of this information. No matter where their character is going to originate from, unless of course they’ve spent the last 5 or so years underground away from everything or were in a coma for about that length of time.

- On Oct 31, 2028 two large asteroids and a micro singularity nearly destroyed the world. One asteroid mostly slammed into New Persia, Iraq/Iran, wiping out a large part of the Middle East, while other pieces of the asteroid and parts of its buddy slammed into other parts of the world. The micro singularity tried to seriously relocate the planet, but thanks to great sacrifice among the mages that was kept to a minimum.
- A good portion of the world population retreated to underground long stay shelters that are more like scifi underground cities, while on the surface the atmosphere recovers from being nearly ripped away, and the planet resettles itself.
- There has been many advancements and improvements to the world. The world no longer relies on petroleum, nuclear power, or coal. Battery technology has improved for rechargeable batteries, making it safer and more efficient. Vat grown meats help supplement the world’s meat supply and lessen the need for larger and larger numbers of cows, pigs, and chickens.
- The floating islands survived the shake up and with the inclusion of a force dome can still be inhabited safely.
