About the Artwork:
The illusion magick known as “War Circus” has been banned in all battlefields since its inception in 2122 BS (Before Singularity). However, during the Queen’s War of 6768 AS (After Singularity) it was discovered that the Jesters Court Battalion had been livestreaming the enchantment into the soldiers’ helmets. It is quite devastating once the enchantment is broken. The gleeful “sport” they’d been participating in revealed to be actual battle as the magick fades away.
