Action RPG “Ordy”
- Neatpower — use it instead of mana

Year 2022 one of magician named Emily Ray was showing some levitation, telekinesis and fire emitting trick. Also, she was claiming she can teach random people to do similar tricks. She was calling some random person from the crowd, hypnotizing the person and making them to repeat her tricks. The strange thing was happening, after returning home the person was continuing to be able to do what they learned during the show. Also, they were able to transfer the ability to other people.
In the middle of 2023 almost whole Earth population have supernatural abilities. World has changed.
In 5 years supernatural becomes a new norm. Almost everyone has telekinetic, levitation, telepathy, fire-generation abilities. Very small percent did not get supernatural abilities, they at this point were considered as “disabled”, and got the nickname “ordinary” and later it shortened to “ordy”.
Cars, stoves, chairs, beds, elevators become obsolete. Car are abandoned, and laying on the side of the roads collecting rust. Roads also not in use, they are covered with cracks and vegetation is growing through cracks. Some companies started making new appliances, for example stoves did not have any connections to the gas, because people could make a fire out of thin air.
Mobile operators need to start collaboration with the cellphone manufactures to be able to disable the phone on the certain altitude because people were flying on the high altitudes and overloading the cellular network.

The hero story
Darkness. Why it is so dark here? You realized your eyes are closed. You are slowly opening your eyes. Not only that, but you can see a worrying face of Sophia.
— What just happened?
Sophia does not say anything.
— What just happened? — you ask again.
The girl gets the tablet and typed on it:
— You died in the terrible accident, you were flying very low in the city and crashed on the skyscraper. We called for the necromancer to resurrect you, but all necromancers were busy, it took 11 days to find a necromancer.
— But necromancer cannot resurrect after 10 days of death? — you asked.
— Yes, this is true. We begged the necromancer to at least to try. He tried and look, you are alive.
— Why you are typing on the tablet, why you are not using your telepathic abilities?
