In this alternative world steampunk machinery and technologies are heavily intertwined with alchemical spells. People have learned to control elemental spirits, and use them as a power source, intermingling divine powers with gears and mechanisms, creating gigantic ships and enormous trains. But the spirits were to break out, if the alchemical chains were to be corrupted or mechanisms happened to be destroyed. This gave birth to the whole new way of leading combat and developing battle tactics.
