The Secret Garden
Also known as the “War of Ruins”, the Ascension War is a conflict between various factions of mages. It ranges across time and space and has been known to alter timelines through the course of its conflicts. The Ascension War has been blamed for the demise or disappearance of several powerful magi and the deterioration of various magical groups, effects and locations across the world.
The current phase of the war and the storms in the Schism date back to November 1998 and the death of an angel in the umbra. This conflict escalated and culminated with something called the Giza Continuum in May 2000
