There is more to know beyond what is written here. What is contained here is just the basics to get you started.



Magic & Humans - With magic returning to Earth this means that humans, and to an extreme lesser degree broods, may develop magical abilities. This can manifest as full blown casting of magic or innate magical abilities that the person is born with, like being able to hide in shadows, having a knack for speaking with animals or having some form of minor natural ability that is somehow magical in nature.



Broods - Broods are fairly unknown species on Earth, except to few humans. Broods are half cat and half human. They can shape shift into any cat form and all have some natural form of psionics. Some have more powerful psionic abilities than other broods, they are called auguries (regardless of being in the brood military branch of the same name). They are highly honor bound, militaristic with a society that is similar to feudal Japan. They live on a hidden Island in the Caribbean Sea called Sanura. They distrust humans and rare venture off their island without a reason for they are hunted by humans that know and hate them.



Brood Hunters - Brood hunters are humans that know of broods and hunt them either to kill or to capture and study. There are freelance hunters, that have formed their own groups and government controlled hunters that work for the U.S. CIA. Freelance hunters are more likely to want to kill broods while government controlled hunters desire to capture and study broods. Brood hunters employ psionic tracking radar that can only monitor major cities; mostly North and Central America and have develop specific weapons to disable and kill Broods. This is why it is dangerous for Broods to visit the mainland.



Utopia - Utopia is a magical fantasy world in which the broods relocated to for a time. The world itself is magical, sentient and worshiped by elves, and other nature or magic users from Utopia that aren't Shadow Mages. Utopia was made by Elendir, their Creator, as a paradise it was soon invaded by Shadow Mages who were jealous and hated the Elves and sought to subjugate them. War rages for thousands of years that resulted in much of the Elven Kingdom being enslaved by the Shadow Mages.

Anyone from Utopia wishing to travel to Earth must have a high magical ability and have specific knowledge of a place on Earth they want to travel to, like having actually been there before otherwise they would have to petition the brood Ambassador, Alieria Spellsong, to travel to Earth. Because of the low magical field on Earth those on Earth that know of Utopia and want to travel there can only do so through the use of psionics which is only available to the broods.



Shadow Mages - They are evil, decadent magic users that invaded Utopia thousands of years ago. They inhabit the lower half of the Lekian continent that is known as Capriel desert or The Great Desert. They were at war with the Elves for thousands of years until the arrival of the broods which turned the tide for the elves. After several successful victories by the broods against the mages they negotiated a truce between the mages and elves, if an uneasy one. The mages were no longer allowed to actively acquire new slaves, but were allowed to keep the ones. They use elven slaves to do just about everything, including using their life essence to magically power the shields that prevent the magically harmful environment of the desert around them from destroying their cities. Their society is filled with constant in-fighting and betrayal that is overseen by their Emperor, Toralin Estrauliss.



Werewolves - Werewolves are rare on Earth, having long ago been hunted to extinction they only now exist as having been brought over from Utopia by the shadow mages to hunt broods. On Utopia they were created and bred by mages and when they were brought over to Earth they rebelled and broke free of the mages yolk.



Utopia Humans - Other non shadow mage humans live on the continent of Lekian, that is similar in size to Earth's Australia. They are of low technology and mostly live in medieval/fantasy type Kingdoms, Empires and City States. They are more magically inclined than Earth bound humans which can manifest itself in numerous ways. For example: casting of magic or innate magical abilities that the person is born with, like being able to hide in shadows, having a knack for speaking with animals or having some form of minor natural ability that is somehow magical in nature.


Magical Creatures - Are made up of three different groups, angelic and demonic heritage and demi-gods. Due to their highly magical nature currently all magical creatures come only from Utopia. Angelic heritage characters have either angelic blood in their near ancestor or goodly divine blood further back in their ancestor. Demonic heritage characters are the opposite. Demi-gods are extremely rare and are half man half god with both magical and psionic abilities. They usually have some specific abilities about them depending on their divine half.



Elves - Elves live on Utopia, with some having emigrated to Earth and live solely on the Brood island of which they are allied. They resided peacefully on Utopia, developing advanced art, literature and architecture until the arrival of the shadow mages. The mages desired war and to subjugate them and conflict raged for thousands of years until the arrival of the broods which turned the tide for the elves. After several successful victories by the broods against the mages they negotiated a truce between the mages and elves, if an uneasy one. The mages were no longer allowed to actively acquire new slaves, but were allowed to keep the ones. Most elves worship Utopia, their goddess of nature and magic.



The Plot - The year is 2019 with magic slowly returning to Earth. Currently the plot is conflict driven with the shadow mages learning of Earth and slowly making their way here. They are aided by a rogue brood called Tessa, whom the brood call the Abomination. Because shadow mages have no knowledge of Earth initial travel to Earth is only possible through Tessa, who uses psionic teleportation but once being on Earth for a time they acan teleport from Utopia back to Earth as they like. Due to Earth's low magic field travel from Earth to Utopia is only possible by Tessa, thus she is an essential key character.

The broods have learned of shadow mages being on Earth and are hunting down leads on where they are located while the mages search out allies for their plans, which can vary between destruction of the broods to taking of Earth completely.
