Magic has flowed into our world before, and whole cultures lost in the distant past relied on magic to function. I’ll leave descriptions and notes about those cultures for future posts. Those cultures perished without a trace when magic failed and the bleak times began. People from these cultures were either scattered to the winds or died trying to find a way to survive a world without magic. For us, the bleak times were normal. Civilizations have risen and fallen for over six millennia without magic to sustain them. The people who lived through the end of the last magical age adapted to an Earth much different to the one they new. Just like modern inhabitants of the Magic Unleashed series have to adapt to the changing environment in Fantastic America and Midwestern Magicians.
Just the same, those cultures left a legacy that survived their demise. All over the world, people will rediscover traces of these civilizations lost to the bleak times. In addition to ruins never explored by archaeologists, some of those traces take the form of relics from that forgotten age. Scattered around the globe just like the people from those long gone cultures, these relics still hold power and pose dangers to those who find them now that magic has returned to the modern world.
