View Full Version : Fantasy + Fallout, a world-building discussion.

I have this Idea of a post-apocalyptic fantasy setting. basically tensions between the two major powers in the pre-war world at the height of an arms race unleashed a weapon that renders the planet's ley-lines (or whatever source of magical geography) inert, making magic uncontrollable. (think wild magic and dead magic zones everywhere) Now years after the catastrophe civilization is pulling itself back together. Now, this brings up questions. How have the "magical" creatures live in these conditions? Has pre-war magic survived in any main form? or more importantly. Where will we find the next safe place with clean water? Do we have enough food for tomorrow? So a little bit of discussion and a healthy dose of fallout references will give me a better Idea of what I want in such a concept.

How did they render inert the Ley-lines/nexus' without wiping out magic completely?
