A brief history of Starsire
The continent of Starsire exists in a world in which magic and technology are in constant conflict. Since the introduction of the Aethernus Pact, the forces of good, evil and even Fey have kept close eye on the deeds of man with their own chosen ones in those gifted with magic.
One particular focus of the elemental powers has been the exponential advancement of technology. Since the Dwarves of Kraz'kun developed alloy steel, the advancement of technology has begun to call into question the hierarchy of magic that has hitherto been the only distinction between the Uperclass of the archmages and the Labour Classes of The Pits. One such technology that has been largely controversial is the invention of gunpowder, which has allowed the Labour camps to look after themselves without the need for magical protection. After knowledge of this spread, the first Great Mundane Revolt began against the established magical class now named "The Touched", a conflict which still rages on in some parts of the continent.
