I like this - and it almost feels like its at the edge of how the Cosmic Era feels to me. It feels closer to other Anime worlds -a bit of Ghost in the Shell and Full Metal Alchemist. This is not a bad thing :) Go to Comment
Small identical wooden or metal discs with a strange pattern engraved upon them (do not appear to be coinage). The discs can be found all over the continent; a farmer typically overturns several dozen when ploughing a field. Though they are unnaturally hard to break, they have no known use and are widely used as good-luck charms: almost all households would have them on the doors and on mantle pieces; many people carry one or more on them, bound on to a belt, necklace or sewn on to their clothes.
