"Just like your parents' marriage, the magic has left Springfield. The beasts are tamed, the evil sorcerer defeated, and the magical school is back to just… school. It's time to put away the wands, spell books, and potions and return to a life of magic-less monotony. But what's next for your town? An alien immigration? The return of the masonic messiah? Or maybe a generational division of lowest common denominators!

Stay tuned for more characters, buildings and stories coming soon!
