Speculative Fiction: The Core City

Posted By brya23456 on Entertainment - I wrote this for a class, but I basically used it as a world building assignment for a book I had once considered writing (and will now use the idea to post short stories from that universe to the site). The main civilization, The Core City is the biggest city in the world and is the home to the most powerful entrepreneurs, politicians, and royalty/aristocrats. It’s also home to some of the most downtrodden outsiders. Think New York, but with magic and stuff.

Instead of humans, the dominant species in Genesis are the Crux, a species of human-like magical beings who are made of and exist solely for magic and power. The kind of magic or “Gift” that one is born with is typically determined by genetics.
