The story is set one thousand years in the future after a war that caused a standstill in technology, architecture and agriculture . During this war, magic has been discovered in order to combat and counter enemy nations, resulting in the disruption in the planet's natural forces, causing parts of the world to become inhabitable to humans, and creating creatures of indescribable horror. These creatures flooded the rest of the world, threatening humanity. The remaining nations form an alliance to drive these creatures out of their respective lands, bringing an end to the war. With most of recorded history lost due to the war, Planet Earth was appropriately renamed Planet Magicae, with magic taught and practiced throughout schools across the globe.
