Imagine the real world BUT there is also magic and fantastical creatures like elves, centaurs, and orcs. This did not change history or culture in the slightest. Like, aside from there being orcs and magic, everything is literally identical. The Alamo happened. Crazy, huh? Now there’s a crystal ball, which is like an artillery strike, but it can also do useful things. Maybe not like grant a wish, but still it’s pretty useful. However, only special people called Dims can use crystal balls. In this world, a crystal ball winds up in the wrong hands and everyone is after it. Guns are involved.
