Do Not Go Gentle
At the site of pre-Rifts city of Toronto, thrives Lazlo, City of Magic. Originally a tiny community of mages dedicated to developing a new science that blended magic and technology, known as Techno-Wizardry. It has since grown to be the home of over two million beings. All creatures are welcome in Lazlo, all philosophies discussed. Lazlo is home to universities of knowledge and magic, libraries, museums, art, history, law and order, industry, and science. The recent fall of the city of Tolkeen has resulted in a massive influx of refugees, over 300,000, which, while Lazlo was prepared to house such numbers, it has had a significant impact on the economy and politics of the city.
Lazlo is governed by two political bodies that serve as check and balance system of government. They are the Congress of the Electorate and the Council of Learning. The chief Peacekeeper of Lazlo is a Wolfen named Arl Zzzyn.
In addition to dealing with the fallout from the destruction of Tolkeen, scouts have recently been returning with reports of Xiticix outposts appearing in what was western Ontario.
