The world effectively lost civilization for over 100 years in 2100. Over the next two hundred years, the world barely began to form a coherent society again. Most of the ancient technology, such as computers and technology was lost. Over time, steam engines and metallurgy became to take effect once more. Finally, elleven hundred years later (Today) the Earth has once again become a society that is anywhere nearly recognizable from today's view point. Some indiviuals possess magical powers, and they fight to protect society from destroying it'self as it did more than one thousand years ago. A society has been formed in the past one hundred years to gaurd Earth from people who would manipulate the nations and people to kill eachother.
Meanwhile, in the Heavens, the gods flutter about trying desperately to realize how they had let the Earth destroy it'self. The saying "Don't know what you got, till it's gone" came to mind as the cheif deities of the world had decided to give their mantles over to a chosen successor. These elder gods became known as the Old Ones. Still a potent force in divine politics, they nonetheless are no longer involved in either day to day deific or mortal affairs. You are one of the gods that have been given the mantle of the previous ones.
Will you be able to protect Earth from destroying it'self once again?
Mantle: You may choose any three. No one can have the exact same match. Mantles are the same as "Domains, Purviews" or Forte's that a god has control over. For example Zeus was the god of the Sky, Ares was the god of War, Aphrodite's mantle was love. You get the idea.
For example, there were two gods of war in Ancient Greece, Ares and Athena, but they were by no means similar.
