* KillSat: The Skyhammer is pretty much what it says on the tin. The IDS Ace in the Hole in case the locals got rowdy. [[spoiler: Unfortunately for them, by the time they decided to use it, the locals had TheAce on their side.]]

Added DiffLines:

* FictionalSport: The simply named 'Airball'. It's basically Tennis played with magic - hitting the ball physically is not required, and if the ball hits the ground, you lose the point, making it a bit less forgiving. People either rely on Kinetic Magic or SuperSpeed to play.

Added DiffLines:

* NoodleImplements: Peter once submitted an expense report for [[http://pastutopia.com/?comic=comic-for-monday-march-20th a toy remote control plane, a replacement television remote, sixteen feet of barbed wire, a fifteen second ad slot on a local network, two fancy suits, and a mouse trap]] (though Kally's pretty sure the mouse trap was just him screwing with their boss)

''[[http://www.pastutopia.com/ The Far Side of Utopia]]'' is a webcomic set TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture in an UrbanFantasy world where magic and technology seem to be merging. It seems that at least some the cast are {{Dimensional Traveler}}s and there at least several worlds/dimensions involved.

It largely seems to follow the various students of Levinworth Academy (seemingly a {{Magitek}} [[WizardingSchool mage school]] - the known programs are "[[FunctionalMagic Magic Use]] and [[{{Magitek}} Engineering]]" and "[[{{Magitek}} Magic Technology]] and Theory"...).

There is Peter, a [[RogueAgent rogue]] [[GovernmentAgencyOfFiction IDS (Interdimensional Security)]] agent with an unknown agenda, and his group. Tyler, the head of the MSB (Magic Security Branch) which is either a [[GovernmentAgencyOfFiction government branch]], an [[SchoolClubsAreSeriousBusiness afterschool club]], or [[SchoolClubFront seemingly both]], and Kally, an active IDS agent who is supposed to be keeping on eye on things. In addition, there is an increasing (possible to the point of never ending) list of background characters that show up, quickly going into [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters Loads and Loads of characters territory]].

* {{Magitek}}: While not the only form of magic, seems wide spread. Autocasters are seemingly widespread and seem to be a cross between a computer, a wand, and gun (though it seems to vary which the lean the closest to).

* RogueAgent: Peter went rogue before the start of the story for nebulous reasons; if it's just a cover, IDS Headquarters seems to want to talk to him real bad.
* SuperToughness: At least one of Mium's abilities seems to be this, if the result of him jumping off the building was the concrete below coming out the loser from the fall is any indication.

* GovernmentAgencyOfFiction: The IDS is this, as is likely the 'Bureau' and maybe the MSB (which seems to be a branch of the Bureau), with the later two being from a different government than the IDS.
