I am at my phone now but, that are some things I guess that may influence this topic.
As I was analyzing the cards, I notice that the factions of Talich don't have ANY Abilities cards with the subtype that indicates that they use magical abilities.
The factions with magical abilities were the CoV and DoD (Exiles has one magical ability - demonize) and, later, OoS.
Although, FD has various characters and card abilities that counter magic.
So, I was thinking too that is something missing here. We have a world of magic (Reisch) and other of technology (Talich) that did not officially crossed paths before so,, how FD did start so fast to have counters for spells (magical abilities)?
OK, cards like Tinkerer Aleta tell us that some did knew about the other dimensions (GI Aleta knew it for more than a thousand years) and this can maybe justifies that some characters came in contact with the other worlds somehow and could explain characters like Hermit and Pras but... The gap stills there... How FD could counter abilities (magical) of a world only a few knew? I guess that are some possibilities to explain that.
Will back here later for more.
