So my boyfriend and I (he writes, I draw) have had trouble with this for a long time where we can't seem to find the best category to simplify our story when describing it to people. To start off it contains the following elements: - Adventure - Fantasy - Sci-Fi - Action - Drama - Political - Psychological - Philosophical The dominating themes for the story are drama, political and philosophy. The setting majors in fantasy with a minor in sci-fi. I guess a comparison world would be Final Fantasy 14 however, it's not "high fantasy". We don't go as crazy with the creativity aspect. To give a brief overview of the world. The world used to be a global technocratic empire but internal strife tore it apart and it slowly, slowly dissolved into smaller and smaller parts over the course of a thousands and some years. Arguably still continuing to present day. Most knowledge of engineering, physics and what not that allowed the empire to be as technologically advanced as it was was lost due to the empire's control of that knowledge in a "scholarly" class. Thus as those people died, so did most of the knowledge. Things broke down and no one knew how to fix them. However the concepts remained so when they started rebuilding they were able to get somewhat of a head start through various means of back engineering and experimentation. Today the world globally exists somewhere between the medieval period (16-1700's) and the early industrial age with some knowledge of electricity depending where you go. Magic is also a known and widely practiced part of this world also depending where you go. The story follows the current world and the many factions within struggling for dominance. It's important to figure it out because I have to sort the story by genre on comic websites.
