Nelwë is a world that has been divided into two opposing philosophies. The philosophies are Nature and Science.
The philosophy of Nature preaches a return to Earth and it's ancient traditions. All technology is to be destroyed as technology is harmful to the environment. Communion with the environment and a greater respect for the balance of nature is fundamental to the philosophy of Nature. The harmony followers of nature seek comes no notion of progress.
The philosophy of Science is completely focused on progress. Science has mastered steam, electricity, flying machines and alchemy but this is seriously harmful to the environment. The progress followers of science seek still hinges on nature whether they realise it or not.
