The Technomagic Age
Inspired by the freedom to invent, and a god to guide them, artificers began becoming more and more common. Technology developed quickly (and sometimes dangerously) to the point where machines, automatons, and even a form of electricity – power gems – were normal. Nearing the end of the age, sky ships were just starting to emerge from the workshops of engineers.
This was, however, when disaster struck again. Manipulated and corrupted by a star-metal meteorite, and the Far Realm entity within, a group of adventurers set out completing a ritual. Throughout many months they completed stages of it before finally they realised what they had been doing.
It was too late.
They sealed the gods away in the Astral Sea and tore down the barriers to every other plane, including the Far Realm. The man who had orchestrated it all just sat and watched as the world burned.
