Points of Darkness
Agriculture was once the basis of Kefala’s feudal society; wars were fought over the continent’s rich farmlands. While rural citizens of the empire were often shunned or openly mocked by more urban residents, their necessity as producers of food protected their rights.
However, in recent years the Elves have managed to find a way to magically generate food in mass quantities, efficiently enough to render agriculture obsolete. Almost immediately, laws were passed to restrict the rights of those who lived outside of cities, and former farmers were strongly encouraged to move within the bounds of the cities.
Naturally agriculture in Kefala dried up overnight as villages emptied out into the growing cities. Each day, more arable farmland is paved over to build yet more expansions to Kefala’s massive urban centers.
