Antebellum is the world in which The Network Series is set. Antebellum is made up of five "networks:" The Northern Network, the Southern Network, the Eastern Network, the Western Network, and the Central Network.
The entire population of Antebellum is made up of witches-- those who have the ability to use magic. Once, they had coexisted with mere mortals, but the latter were driven out of Antebellum during the Mortal Wars. After this, the witches destroyed what was once known as the Almorran race, making them the only race to exist in Antebellum.
