Before the so-called Declaration of Existential Independence of 22 GE can be enacted, the old jump drive contained within the core of Borealis is fired up unexpectedly: A group of radical technocrats steal the heart of the city to construct with it their own technocratic city called “Miyako Fluxum”, which will later often be referred to as “the Moving City”. They disagreed with the decision to ban the faculty of technamagix, saying that all knowledge is good knowledge, and now their new city jumps from place to place within the Great Land, more openly trading with the Middle Lands, the Yamato Kingdom, and the westernmost city called Altonar, a less developed technocracy. The isolationist Borealis, on the other hand, still hoards much of its advanced technology and only conducts trade by proxy through its way-point outpost Rimcity on Guantil-ya.While being the first technology that utilized spacial bending with an emphasis on advanced gyrometrics rather than raw clockwork magic (though still using magic to bypass certain natural laws), the jump drive made its way into the most advanced magocratic city of Aqualon, Fulgrath, in time.
The great city of Fulgrath has a large district called "the Forge", which is where most of the magic engineers, smiths, and engineers are located. Amazing new machines are invented and realized here every day, though most of the truly monumental research is done in the Grand Academy of Fulgrath in the north of the city.
Though electric carriages had their brief dawn in Fulgrath, the need for a proper mass-transit system to connect the large areas of the city to each other was quickly realized. Scholars of the Grand Academy of Fulgrath and magic engineers from the Forge worked together for months until they received unexpected but welcome help from Miyako Fluxum, the moving technocrat city, which had already become an important trading partner for Fulgrath at the time. Together they created the transit towers, which harness soul energy and spatial distortion based on high-speed soul computation to warp so-called 'travel gates' together and allow people to move from tower to tower in seconds, regardless of distance.
