“...they come to us, these restless dead,
Shrouds woven from the words of men,
With trumpets sounding overhead
The walls of hope have grown so thin
And all our vaunted innocence
Has withered in this endless frost
That promise little recompense
For all we risk, for all we've lost...”
> In a mechanical world that breeds hatred and greed... He is frightened of them. Scared that they would become something that would haunt him for the rest of his life. So he banished them. Killing them ruthlessly with a machine. What kind of man was he? He didn't use his own hands to wring the life out of others. He was a coward, no. He was a smart man by using tools to do his bidding. He became a thing of evil who lost sight of his long-forgotten dreams.<
P L O T
In the olden world, magic ran high and low. The humans born with magic were called 'Mages', and the people who were born without magic were called 'humans'. These two groups of people lived in harmony with each other, until persecution occurred. Suddenly, humans were denied the right to run for a government job and were forced to work in low class jobs. They couldn't get a decent education and was denied health care/insurance. The 'new' generation of Mages were spiteful and haughty, looking down on these humans who couldn't even fight back. Yet, the Mages were wrong. The humans fought back, eventually toppling the once strong mage-run government. One particular man, who is only named "President" took over the city and turned it to a dystopia.
The high position Mages were thrown into jail or executed, while Techs flocked to take up their positions. Whole families of Mages were wiped off; the survivors being thrown into the same hellish place the Techs used to live in. History once again repeats itself.
50 years after the coup d'etat, the Mages are now fighting back at these humans who have re-named themselves as 'Techs'. You are either a Mage who is trying to fight for equality, a Tech who is trying to suppress the Mages, or a traitor/spy.
Who will win? What will happen after? The rest is up to you to decide.

Magic is divided into four main elements; Fire, Earth, Water, and Air. There will be side branches, so you are allowed to use electricity from fire, ice from water, etc. However, please keep in mind of Rule #6. I will not tolerate any person who abuses their magic powers.
Technology is quite advanced in this world. There are robots or un-manned tanks that are being manufacturer at a fast rate. Basically everything is made from mechanical creatures, from the city's army to your general mall. Weapons will also be high-tech, and there are mechs that can be controlled by humans (inside). Also, people can replace their body parts with a mechanized version of their part.
I shall provide several pictures/terms!
> Mage Handcuffs (M.H)
These handcuffs are used against a Mage to void off all their powers for a certain amount of time.
A group that is intent on rebelling against the Techs. The leader will be played by me while the Vice will be played by xKarnival. Their mission is to release influential Mages from jail and help Mages in need. Members of the Arcane wear white masks and black/white clothes to help hide their identity.
Humans with technology. Fascinating. Continue on with your life.
They also have a specials ops group called "Jaeger". They specialize in combating against the Arca.

History: Her parents are strong believers in magic and got arrested first when the law about no magic came out. Megumi then got arrested herself on purpose to bust her parents out, but was too late and her father was already executed. She barely made it in time to save her mom and bust out. From then on she wears a mask when she goes out which isn't uncommon. She lives with her mom in hiding now. Her mom became unstable after her dad died, so she took over her mom’s place in the group called Arcane.
Skill: Megumi hones her skill specifically for fire. From fire she sometimes uses the smoke that comes from burning materials as a covering for her to escape or to limit the air for the techs to breathe in. She also learned to control the temperature of the fire to make it hotter or cooler for certain circumstances. But one thing is that the hotter she raises the temp. the more energy is sucked out of her. She also is starting to learn how to use lightning, but it is very dangerous when she uses it. It's also very hard for her to control lightning and requires a lot of concentration. She mainly sticks with fire.
