On Rathlon, wizards are kings and those incapable of magic are nothing more than second class citizens. Until the disenfranchised began to strike out at their overlords. Several riots have burst into the city, forcing arcane police to intervene, only to learn that their magical armors were little protection to a well placed bullet. It is a threat that most of the populace are blissfully unaware of, these weapons have a way of ignoring the defense charms of even the most powerful mage.
There have been a few developments in a type of bulletproof armor that absorbs the kinetic force of the bullet, but there seems to be no real defense against it. The Mayor Archmage has kept this development quietly underwraps, hoping to avoid a civil war. He fears the terrorists behind this uprising of non-wizards threatens the very exhistance of his world. Unfortunately, no matter how hard he tries, rumors have spread throughout the city, and tensions between the two groups are at an all time high. He fears an all out gangwar, or that those clamoring to lock up all non-wizards may gain traction in the senate.
