This game has been in the works for a very long time. I think I’ve had five restarts on it. Finally making some progress on it.

To truly understand magic one must know the history of magic. Magic was once not a natural product of our world, hard to believe I know. Thankfully the lus na hoíche monks secreted away great vaults of historical documents. While I was never allowed direct access to the vaults the monks went to great risks in numerous meetings allowing me to view hundreds of scrolls and tomes. After a time I felt the risk to the monks was to great and thanked them as we parted ways. I have put down my thoughts and notes below in hopes that one day I may continue my research and complete a full write up of our history.
Earlier I noted ‘our world’, that is not a true statement. We are invaders to this world, brought here as slave armies during the time the Black Towers were built, for what reason I have failed to discover. The true inhabitants of this world were the Elves. Today’s Elves are a spattering of tribes that dot the landscape. They have nothing in common with their ancestors. But I digress as this is on magic, I will however endeavour to write up a more comprehensive tome on the Elevin history and why they have fallen so far.
I bring this up as it was the power that brought these invading armies that flooded the land. Still magic was not prevalent but the world absorbed the power like a sponge and thus the planet was changed overnight. The close of the war left the multitude of races stranded here and they began to build homes and grow communities. It was this time the Gods came.
The Gods were the ones that unlocked the power of magic from the earth, perhaps it was the sheer raw power that drew them here in the first place. The Gods were petty and cruel and the inhabitants suffered greatly. Until they to learned to use the magic, they came together and sealed the Gods away from our world, hopefully to never return. The Gods magic stop flowing with the sealing, it was still there but trapped in the earth.
There are only two races that are able to draw magic naturaly from the ground. The Yeti, a peaceful and intelligent race that unfortunately are believed to be extinct. The other being the Fay, which are highly prized but decidedly an horrendous act to transform a Fay to use their magic.
Magic is broken down into three types. Green or natural magic, Red or strong magic, and Black or illusionary magic. It was the discovery of Aegirine crystals that truly gave magic back to the races. They are used in strong magic. The title of strong magic is a bit of a misnomer. There is no difference in natural magic and strong magic other than it take a very strong will to force the magic from the crystal. Being that it is forced from the crystal it can be bent a bit more than natural magic causing a few spells that we would not otherwise see.
The Fay are the only ones that use the black magic. It is a commonly held belief that due to their small size that they cannot fully absorb the magic thus it does not have the same power leaving the spells a mere shadow of the the real thing. This seems to suit the wee little ones as they use the magic in defense and hiding.
There are many gaps here in my notes that if given a chance I will research further, for now this will end my summary of notes.
How many days left? Can you save the sleepers? And why does your head hurt so much? You’re gona die, but can you solve the problem with no memory. Can you make difference before your clock runs out.
This game I work on when I can’t get on my computer. It is much smaller in scope so maybe done about the time I get ready to do final testing. This game will beta testing only, sorry there will be no public demo.
