Finally… Finally, it was football season again. Last season and the entire last year was the weirdest the world had ever seen. It began when the entire world’s population was magically transformed into centaurs. During the Super Bowl, it became worse. A magical event took place that permanently changed the world. It was Brianna’s Call, and it struck the Earth just before half time.
Brianna’s Call was the sum of all of Earth’s magic. It was hurled out into space thousands of years ago and traveled like a comet ever sense. When it returned, it struck the face of the planet with microscopic magical dust particles.
There was pandemonium everywhere as people began accidentally using magic. During the second half of the Super Bowl, the referees imposed penalties for magical transgressions. There was already a rule in effect to allow for the transformed centaurs. It was implemented because several of the players had developed horns, tusks, talons, claws, hooves, mandibles and antlers. But, there were just too many variables to allow the inclusion of magic.
