The New World
North America has been pulled through The Rift at the start of the Revolutionary War. Now it is all alone and has no need to fight for its independence. Unfortunately, there is a whole set of New Problems.
Already a factious and contentious epoch, the divisions are only increasing. While The Leaders attempt to retain power and control, the future remains very much in doubt.
The magical energies released during The Rift wrought great changes to North America and its inhabitants. The vast majority of the populace was changed according to their emotional nature becoming The Transformed.
In addition, many wild and even domestic animals became exceedingly violent, reckless, and tough, earning them the name, The Enraged. Most of the insane and mentally unstable are similarly afflicted.
