Chapter: 1 Introductions - Travis
Have you ever thought about how cool it would be if you have magic? Well imagine that instead of making progress on machines us humans made progress on using madyik (mah-jik) or what we call magic on our world. From 1450 to 1750 people from all around the world have been participating on what we know as the witch hunt. Countless people were killed and tortured if they were using or learning magic. What would happen if those people weren't killed and figured out the secrets that lurks within our selves? 
"It doesnt matter what we use humans will keep killing each other no matter what we do"
Although some kids were born with more talent and unique abilities or more mana magic was always used for everyday lives, from cooking to cleaning, doing the laundry and etc. Magic was a harmless thing, it was used for making our lives easier. Famous magicians such as Newton figured out the incantation for levitation, The man that made the incantation for fire, Edison made lives easier for everyone and Uzumaki combined magic and science to create machines that allowed everyone to build houses and infrastructure much easier.
The Seven great wizards one from each region acts as the president of the continent all agreed that research on magic that can harm others was banned. But the ruler of Antartica, Freljord ordered his men to research and find a way to take over the world to make him the king. The Antians specialised on using ice magic to fight. In one night Freljord led his army and took over Australia in one fell swoop with their ice magic. Without the knowledge and spells to defend themselves taking over Australia was an easy task for the Antians.
The remaining 5 countries were told about the declaration of war from the antians and were forced to take sides. Europe, South America and North America sided with the Antians starting the first Great magic war. The war went on for 4 years, 3 months and 1 week. 17 million people died, 7 million civilians died and 10 million soldiers died from the war, it was one of the deadliest conflicts in the history of the human race.
Centuries past, a new generations of wizard kings rules their region. Each region has now made a school for people that have talent for magic, they are called magic schools. Every year only a couple hundred get in the magic school and almost everyone is from a royal family or with unique abilities.
"Do you think we'll make it?" A girl's voice said
I started to open my eyes and wondered what was going on. I saw a girl beside me but I couldn't figure out who it was, my vision was too blurry.
"Thank goodness your awake!" The girl spoke again "You've been out of it for a few hours and Leo and I are having trouble fending of other candidates"
I remember now, Leo and Sophie is on my team for the trials. If I remember correctly this year's trials is the same as last years but on a forest. Each member of your team gets a head band, a Head band is worth 1 points and the leaders head band is worth 2. To pass the trial you need to have 6 points
"The head band! Where is it?!" I croaked
For some reason my throat was sore. I dont remember how it happened.
"Dont talk yet T" Sophie warned "One of the candidates casted a silenced spell on you making you unable to cast spells earlier" 
"Wheres Leo?" I asked
"He is setting traps around this cave to protect us" Sophie answered "I need to grab some food for dinner too I'll be back"
I nodded in reply. I tried to remember what happened, After a few minutes I remembered everything that happened. I was so useless, they snuck up on us and casted a silence spell on me. We tried to run away but they trapped us between a crevice. We casted spells at each other, at first sophie overpowered the enemy but the third member of their group used the confusion to cast an invisibility spell and knocked me out with a force arrow and snatched away my headband. Getting what they came for the enemy retreated unscathed.
Sophie said that I've been unconscious for a few hours. We don't have much time The first phase of the trials only last for one day. We spent a few hours trying to find other candidates and an hour battling one team and we got delayed a few more hours because I was unconsious. Damn it, we lose two points because I was careless.
