The Breaking

The main gist of my world is that the party will be be playing 75 years after The Breaking. The millennia prior to The Breaking was the pinnacle of magical enlightenment. Nearly everything was done with magic – food was magically harvested (if not just conjured), buildings and whole cities levitate, magical lights, teleportation, etc. And then magic stopped working, which became known as “The Breaking.” Approximately 90% of the world’s sentient population died. Communication has been cut off. The world became filled with monsters and magical aberrations and most people were forced to live underground and towns are now nearly impossible to find. Magic’s consequences are considered to be too great, if not completely evil. If people are found practicing magic they’ll likely be executed or at least kicked out of town. Although Racism is at a high (they all blame other races), they’re somewhat willing to work together to do the difficulty in managing to survive.
