Magic has gone awry. Nine years ago the people of Roc’s Way noticed an increase in the presences of elemental magics. Seven years ago the magic storms from The Triangle has started bringing the Newcomers to Roc’s Way. The magic storms are a mixture of shadow and prime magic. There are four epicenters of elemental magic on Roc’s Way. The rest of the world has been effected by magic, but not as strongly as Roc’s Way.
Astral Travel is severely limited (i.e. teleportation does not work). Summoning is still functioning, but elementals summoned have altered stats based on where they are summoned.
