If the world you knew changed overnight, would you be the same? With new powers suddenly at your fingertips, would you do what was right? Twelve years ago, when magic awakened in this world, many faced that question. Chaos reigned as crime waves surged and the government sought to control, shape, and harness this new power. Through their research, society gained Magitronics, powerful tools and conveniences powered by magic, and an Academy for the training of new Casters. Yet even now, others known as OutCasts refuse to bend to the government’s control, using their powers as they wish. Which is the proper use of magic? Which faction would you agree with?Explore this lengthy, battle-action story across six different perspectives, with new scenes and new opportunities opening up as you delve deeper into each character’s life!
