    The Divide

    HOLY HECK THATS SOME SRS BACKGROUND INFO:
    In the beginning, the world was split into two. Those who had magic, and those who had none.

    Those who had magic were few, but happy. They shared their powers, trying to help others.

    But those who did not have magic were envious. They didn’t think it was fair for one group to hold all of the power. So they built weapons, and attacked those who had magic, killing all they could.

    Those with magic were frightened, many gathered up many like them, others who could use magic, and fled from their cities, forming their own towns and groups far from the weapon wielding warriors. But others stood up and fought against them, wielding nothing but their powerful arcane powers against the warriors.

    The warriors fought back, creating newer, more powerful weapons. Ones more efficient at killing those with magic. Ones that couldn’t be so easily blocked. They created guns.

    With these guns and their sheer numbers, they started driving the magic users back, and out of their cities. Forcing them to retreat back to their newly formed tribes.

    The magic users formed together, deciding the needed to create something new to help them win the war. With this, they formed their magic together, creating a new race, known as the Elves. The elves were known as the perfect magic race, being unable to be born without magical abilities, and their lifespans were much longer than the humans’, fueled by their vast quantities of magic, but this overabundance of magic in their system made most of them infertile, and it took them so long to have a child, that their numbers have been low since the day they were formed. But they were considered an invaluable resource to the magic army, winning them multiple battles.

    The techies saw these elves, and made themselves their own breed of super soldiers: the orcs. These violent creatures craved blood, attacking magic users on sight. Alas, their bloodthirst was their downfall, eventually they ended up being slaughtered on the battlefield before they could begin to continue their species, but not before taking down vast numbers of magic warriors.

    Prompted by this failure, the techies worked on a new race, more hardy and less bloodthirsty. A race to help them build up their army. The dwarves. These creatures were deemed the species for the techies. Their knack for building machines, near inability to use magic, and enough strength to withstand much more damage than the average human, kept them as the second most populous race.

    The techies, with their new dwarven allies built up their weaponry, eventually creating a new type of vehicle that allowed them to attack from the air. These plans gave them an express advantage over the magic users, who quickly retreated, planning a new devious plot.
    The magic users stayed back for many months, practicing their magic, perfecting their abilities, and gaining back their strength. Many of the magic user leaders came together to discuss their new plan of attack. A monstrous beast that could fly in the air. Dragons. The magic users created as many dragons as they could, forming them from lizards, humans, and birds. Soon they were ready to fight again.
    Unfortunately, the time the magic users gave, allowed the techies time to prepare themselves as well. They had newer, more powerful weapons, made by a techie who went by the name of Trill. These weapons, exoskeletons that enhanced the user's abilities tenfold, were dubbed PEX Suits.

    Soon, the magic users came onto the battlefield, their army filled with their new dragons. The fight raged on for hours before all of a sudden, a large explosion came from the techie ranks.

    Nobody is sure what happened at the exact moment, but most claim that a young mage tried to cast a protective spell on himself, and at the time of casting, the mage’s power seemed to be draining into the PEX suit. The wizard’s life drained away from him, turning him into nothing but a shriveled husk. The PEX Suit warrior stood victoriously over the wizard’s corpse, before all too soon his suit flashed, turning into a vast explosion consuming the entire battlefield.

    The unfortunate survivors started to mutate, turning grey, and gaining sharp fangs. Long ear-like fins grew from the back of their heads, and their hair started falling out. Those with magic gained red eyes, and those without, and eerie yellow. These new creatures, called goblins, came together, and left for the mountains, never to be heard from again.

    Those who were more fortunate were stunned at what had happened. They stared at the now ruined desert wasteland that used to be the battlefield. Shock went through both sides of the war, all of them mourning all those whose lives had been lost in the explosion. Swearing that this would never happen again, the survivors in charge of both factions met each other in the center and drafted out a treaty, stating that there would be a divide between the two groups.

    A large wall was to be built on the outskirts of the wasteland, going from one side of the continent to the other, with the techies living on one side, and the mages on the other. The drafted rules for this divide:

    Rule 1: All those who use magic must live on the south side of the wall. All those without magic must live on the northside.
    Rule 2: No magic user may cross the walls into the Techies’ side without a permit. Likewise, a techie may never go into the magic side of the wall without a permit. This is enforced under penalty of death.
    Rule 3: Permits given to cross to the other side of the wall are only to be given to those bringing people to the other’s side. While in the enemy’s territory, no technology must be brought in, nor can magic be used.
    Rule 4: The use of necromancy and machinery to revive the dead is forbidden.
    Rule 5: The fusion between technology and magic is banned, under penalty of death.
    Rule 6: Romance between the two factions is not allowed. If this is found out, both parties will be moved to separate, undisclosed locations within their alignment until their behavior is corrected.

    With both parties satisfied with the treaty, the both left to their respective sides. Construction on the wall began immediately.

    TL;DR LAWS OF THE LAND:
    Rule 1: All those who use magic must live on the south side of the wall. All those without magic must live on the northside.
    Rule 2: No magic user may cross the walls into the Techies’ side without a permit. Likewise, a techie may never go into the magic side of the wall without a permit. This is enforced under penalty of death.
    Rule 3: Permits given to cross to the other side of the wall are only to be given to those bringing people to the other’s side. While in the enemy’s territory, no technology must be brought in, nor can magic be used.
    Rule 4: The use of necromancy and machinery to revive the dead is forbidden.
    Rule 5: The fusion between technology and magic is banned, under penalty of death.
    Rule 6: Romance between the two factions is not allowed. If this is found out, both parties will be moved to separate, undisclosed locations within their alignment until their behavior is corrected.
