It's the November of 1928. The Last War has just concluded. The power of Magic, once seen with wonder and awe, is now feared by all. Mage families, who have traditionally ruled society, are now reeling from the terrors of magically-enhanced war.
Through its isolation from the Northern Continent on which the Last War has taken place, the Gestahlian Republic has risen to become the world's global power. Yet even as clouds of dust collect on the fields of Gestahl, so do ill portents cloud upon this nation of unprecedented reach.
The gap between mages and non-mages has now widened, with the shrinking middle class caught in between great luxury and great loss. Violent insurgencies and counter-insurgencies plague impoverished rural areas. Espers fear being hanged and shot on the streets simply for looking the way they look. Necromancy has recently been outlawed, causing a boom of persecuted and unregulated magi to take to the streets as warlocks.
Business is booming.
unreal city is a roleplay based on Final Fantasies 6 and 7. In a world with magic, the haves and the have-nots still persist - the haves just have superpowers to boot. This causes all the problems you'd expect it to cause, and maybe even more. You can, of course, play as a have; in fact, it's the default option.
