The Tides of Hiroshima
Tides of Hiroshima
On August 6, 1945, the Little Boy nuclear bomb was deployed onto Hiroshima. This was the first time in history that a nuclear weapon was used for purposes of warfare. This was the end of World War II. It was the beginning of something even bigger though. On August 2, 1945 in Hiroshima, Japan, a mysterious group of practitioners tore a hole into the Nevernever. A portal of this size was dangerous and unprecedented, the fallout of the spell permanently changing the island, mystically speaking, and releasing legions of Wyldfae into the mortal realm. Xiangliu, a powerful water dragon banished centuries before was also released that day. The fierce monster decimated the ecology of the island everywhere he went, leaving nothing but gullies and marshes devoid of plant and animal life.
The story is that someone high up in the government, someone “in-the-know”, pulled some strings behind the scenes and an atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. The blast was devastating and paid no heed to man or beast, good or evil, woman or child. No one knows who this was, if it was an individual or cabal of some sort. Either way a group of powerful wizards, Fae and other supernatural kin decided to rekindle the long disbanded White Council of Wizards to find out what happened and make sure such a decision like the one at Hiroshima will never be made lightly.
