Crystal-powered technology is magic and technology utilizing the power of newly discovered crafted crystals. The Magistrate facility Deepwerks became the source for many new crystal-powered inventions. A crystal powered revolution overtook the Realm, the uses were limitless and the Realm's future seemed brighter than ever.
But soon there were accidents and horrible misuses of power. Tragedies the Magistrate feared would send them back to the chaos and destruction of times past, causing them to ban crystals from common use.
While some agreed with this choice, others feared or distrusted the Magistrate. A group rallied behind Valera, leader of the former Paladins. They stood opposed to this decision, believing crystals had the power to improve the lives of everyone. Together, they formed the Resistance, and after weaponizing crystals, they went to war with the Magistrate.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Not every purple crystal is explicitly related to the Abyss, but many crystals that are related to the Abyss tend to be purple, as revealed here. It's unknown if Abyssal crystals are those that originated from the Abyss, or if they're normal crystals that somehow became infused with Abyssal energy.
- While these types of crystals are stated to be a new discovery in the A Realm Divided lore cinematic, Karne can be seen wielding some form of crystal prior to this in the same video.
