EDEN CITY CHRONICLE: PART II
The year is 2017, in a version of Earth very different than your own. Humans are born with a special gene that allows them to develop superpowers as they age. Around the beginning of their teenage years, children become able to access their powers, which are passed down their genetic line. Some become spell-casters like their parents, or way-masters like their uncles, or sand-men like their great grandmothers. There are hundreds of these “power-types”, some very common, others so rare they are considered sacred. Amidst it all, there is one very certain thing: This is all natural. Since the dawn of time, people have had these powers, and have never questioned them. Consequently, society is altered by them. Technological advances have created power-dampening barriers, keeping anything within them from using their abilities. Each individual has a unique “Aether-Trace”, a sort of finger print sent out by the use of their power that can be detected with a variety of devices. Weapons and tools called “Gear” are produced, to enhance, amplify, and extend the uses of the powers of those who use them.
Those whose powers are fully developed, who have trained and practiced and become skilled, who have tempered their powers to their farthest capabilities, are given the title “Archon”.
Eden City is the capitol of the United States of America in this alternate version of your world. It is located on the east coast, about where your world’s New York City is found. Peace is maintained in Eden City not only by the police force, but by the Archon Assembly; Eight talented Archons who willingly face any threat that would endanger the city, while working in a variety of humanitarian and philanthropic projects.
