RPG Synopsis, Universe Facts and Our Story Thus Far
This RPG takes place in an alternate reality where magic wielding people (Magi) are quite normal and live amongst their non-magical counterparts (Nons).
November 1946- It's been a little over a year since the end of World War II and the United States has found itself in turmoil. Following a corruption of government, President Truman has been removed from office replaced by a powerful Mage bent on pushing his own agenda of Magi supremacy.
After decades of living side by side, Magi and Nons are slowly but surely being turned against each other. Violence against Nons is becoming common. Nons are being forced to register. Some have just disappeared completely. Many have fled their homes looking for the safety of anonymity. Their best hope is The Resistance- an underground rebellion made up of Nons and Non sympathizers determined to return the balance of power between the two. But as enemies and danger mount alarmingly high, many wonder if there is any hope at all.
Notes about the Universe (Will be updated as things change or are decided upon):
-Magi look just like everybody else with no outer marks distinguishing them from Nons. No mutants or other magical, fantasy-like creatures exist in the universe.
-There is no record of Magi being created. They have always lived beside Nons. As far as Magi Supremacists are concerned, Magi came first and Nons are incomplete beings born of them. Of course, nobody knows for sure how Magi and Nons came to be.
-Magi are born with only one power and it is typically a unique power that no other living Magi shares. In rare cases, a Mage may be born with the power of one of its parents.
-Typically a Mage is born of Magi parents, a Non is born of Non parents and the child of a Mage and a Non could go either way. In rare cases Magi parents may produce a Non child and in even rarer cases Non parents may produce a Mage child.
-As far as we know in the universe, though Magi and Nons live across the globe, the United States is currently the only country where the backlash is happening. Many Nons have been attempting to escape over the boarders into Canada and Mexico. Legal international travel for Nons has been banned.
