A city built on technology and powered by steam, Lodan is a city that many neighbouring cities grow jealous of for its vast array of knowledge. The home of many humans, it is a playground for merchants, inventors, engineers and visionaries alike. However, in such a popular and powerful city, lies a dark secret; humans are not the only ones to call Lodan 'home'.
There lies another race, banished away from the rich society and condemned as demons, this race is named "Andersweltlers". Originally hailing from another realm, the race sought safe refuge in Lodan; as their home land was being destroyed by a terrifying force, a force that managed to wipe out a large handful of their numbers. In desperation, the Andersweltlers' most powerful mages opened a portal to the nearest safe haven; the portal chose Lodan, much to the distaste of the Humans upon being invaded by these 'Demons'.
The invasion caused an uproar, Humans refused to share their city with these strange beings, despite their human-like appearances. Battles were fought, Humans & Andersweltlers were killed during the war and eventually, the royal family called a halt to the killing; demanding that a peace treaty be signed as there was more strength in numbers. However, this peace treaty came with one condition for the Andersweltlers. They were to seal the portal to their realm, closing off the connection that allowed the force that had almost driven them to extinction, to possibly threaten the city of Lodan next.
The condition was agreed and using the best mages they had, they sealed the portal; making sure that no one could leave or enter the opposite realm, including those still fighting off the terror.
Now 100 years in the future, Andersweltlers are more accepted amongst the humans, but they are still seen as a lower class; most of the Andersweltlers living within the slums of the city and hired to do lower paying jobs. The Andersweltlers agree that it's not a perfect life, but they have safety; although, they have been building on their strengths and biding their time.
Magic utilizes the energies of Nature, defying its laws, therein protecting it.
Technology utilizes the resources in Nature, obeying its laws, but destroying it.
This is Lodan, where Technology and Magic are at war.
