IMPORTANT
In this past October (2020) the Shifti Community lost Chris "Robotech Master" Meadows to an accident involving an SUV hitting his electric bike and leaving the scene. While we may never know the full story of this event, the administrators of Shifti will work to preserve his account and works here as he'd wish us to. Thank you all for being such excellent people.

Revision as of 21:36, 30 September 2007

Stories in the "modern magic" genre feature a setting that's close to or indistinguishable from the current-day 'real' world, but in which some sort of magical effects are possible. This would include such things as the Xanadu setting, where magic suddenly shows up out of "nowhere", but not alternate histories where magic has always been widely known and has deeply influenced the development of society.

This genre isn't normally a very common one outside of TF fandom, but it's common enough in TF fandom that it seems awkward trying to lump such things in with more traditional medieval-type fantasy.
