The Gods get bored very easily, and when they are bored they experiment.. And thus the Crucible was born, a collection of worlds linked together in ancient times by the great pillars of the Light, each one bestowing the different planets with different gifts.
Key amongst those was Red Amber, the magical stone that stores energy helping to imbue users with powers beyond compare. Red Amber brought in an age of technological marvels powering untold electrical devices, however where Red Amber took over, the grip of the Gods and magic fell to nothing.
In this new golden age of information where the Light has ended, metaphorically and literally, we have space travel, the InterFlect system and a world of mega-corporations where the exploits of the old-world of magic are almost forgotten.
