Mars, the red planet, 4th from the sun, should be a peaceful world. The intelligent race that inhabits the planet is a simple group of people. Tall and thin, hairless with dark red skin, the Martians are a very community-driven people; each gifted with a strong but incomplete magical power, they work together to form beautiful hive-structures, create food and drink of many varied styles, and mold the basic rocks and sand of their planet into works of art.
Sadly, Mars also hosts an odd phenomenon. Periodically, breaches in reality open, and inhabitants and landscape from other dimensions begin to encroach upon the face of Mars. It has been a long time since anyone has attempted peaceful communication with these outsiders, since the different alien’s intentions have been universally hostile. A new class of citizen grew, the wardens, tasked with using their powers to create weapons and destructive magical spells to fight off the invading forces that visit the world.
