Despite the tide of dark and frightening events in Fantastic America and Midwestern Magicians, there are many reasons to hope for a brighter tomorrow. Magic is wild and follows rules that people have yet to decipher in this new magical age. There are signs of goodness and light to push back the darkness. Prayer, an early discovery that strong faith can protect people from the dangers loose in the world sustained millions. While those protections are a boon to the faithful, magic users themselves will prove even more potent in pushing back the forces that would tear apart the Earth as we know it. Whether those magic users will have time or be free of meddling by governments around the world remains to be seen.
