Go To

Look outside your window. Can you see the war which rages every minute of every minute of every day? Can you hear the cries from the front line as it shifts back and forth across infinity? Of course not - mages are more subtle than that. You may glimpse the casualties - Mrs Kim, who spontaneously combusted in her apartment, the businessman who turned a corner one day and apparently vanished from existence. For the most part, the mystick warriors use magick to veil their conflicts. It is also true that clashes are as often philosophical as they are physical.
Mages call this invisible, universal conflict the Ascension War. At stake is the fate of humanity, our Earth and all of reality. The winners of this war will do more than merely rewrite history - they will draft the future.
