Adequately Advanced Magic is set in the city of Falcon's Reach, a city in which magic is mass produced for everyday use.
Single-cast spells, known as MagiTech, are powered by compact crystals of magical power known as Magetite. While MagiTech has led to advances in technology and worldly comforts for some, it has also created a drastic divide between the haves and have-nots.
Some of the old world remains. Monsters have adapted to their new urban surroundings and some have become surprising adept at survival. Meanwhile, those who are innately gifted with the ability to cast natural magic are even more rare as compared to the past, with much of the knowledge of how magic works either forgotten or carefully hidden.
Otherwise, Falcon's Reach is dominated by skyscrapers, dragon-led corporations and, occasionally, floating-disk hover car traffic jams.
Nifty things to know:
Falcon's Reach is dominated by five corporations. The central one (both literally and figuratively) is Solstice Industries, which focuses on MagiTech. FalcoCo focuses on energy and Magetite; JYMO on food and water; Wolf News on entertainment; and Valdivian offers security.
Each of the corporations is led by a Chief Executive Dragon (CED), with one exception.
The outskirts of the city -- East and West Overia -- are especially impoverished. Even then, living inside the city does not guarantee any better quality of life.
By some standards, the transition from the high-fantasy medieval era was not so long ago. Some residents with longer life spans can recall the days when magic was much more rare.
