This Shard is similar to Aquarius to an extent but came to be for completely opposite reasons. For this Shard to come into existence, it required two things: a serious upheaval to the world due to supernatural events experienced by billion of people and a relative ‘blank slate’ to the supernatural afterward.
With both normal and supernatural societies in shamble, this left it open for a new order to emerge. Mankind began the study of the supernatural with both a scientific and mystical point of view, seeking to understand the principles behind cosmic forces. Worterburgh was rebuilt and expanded into a massive metropolis solely designed to study these new powers, mostly via….teenagers. For some reason. The city is neutral ground for all the nations of earth, who now regularly compete with each others by pitting teenagers in superpower death match because hey this is what civilized people do, right?
Yes, its basically ’what if Worterburgh was a crappy Light Novel of the likes of Infinite Stratos, Magical Index, Irregular At Magic Highschool or The Asterisk War.
