I have a sci-fantasy world where magic exists. It's set in roughly our era of time, and I'm trying to determine how this sorcery would factor into our daily lives even if we ourselves were not mages. There aren't elves or dwarves or many of the fantasy standard intelligent races in this story, but there are gods, and their agents (Ie, angels, demons), wizards (A group of eight archmages for the eight elemental groups; Fire, water, earth, air, life, death, light, and dark, as well as all others who have the ability to use magic.) Humans only rarely have the ability to use magic. Out of the 7.6 Billion humans on the planet, only about 5 thousand are able to use magic. The Eight Archmages are semi-immortal. They will live until they are killed, and age at a much slower rate. Perks of being the ultimate mage of their element. I won't go into detail about how the magic works (Because if I tried to explain the physics and mechanics behind telling the laws of physics to kiss my *ss, we'd be here a while.), but basically the mage in question takes control over and manipulates the forces involved with fulfilling what they are trying to do, which is powered by mana, that exists in everything. I'm thinking that Mana=Dark Matter, since so little is known about it and it is related to the big bang, so it would make sense that the gods and other magical entities responsible for the creation of the universe would have used it as fuel. Each mage only has a limited amount of mana at their disposal at any given time, and when they run out they can no longer do magic until their mana has restored. Their body draws in mana from the world around them to fulfill this restoration, but with training a mage can increase the mana at their disposal. I'm wondering how said magic would factor into modern society. What would our cities look like, if we can get a group of mages to build towns in a day? What about household appliances that harness magic? Do you think magic would have military applications, since it is so rare for a human to be able to use it? What would out technology look like that harnesses magic and science simultaneously? A lot of these questions I have a vague answer to, but I feel like a lot of people are gonna have a lot of questions, so I wanna hear what you guys think.
