The rise of magic, the fall of technology, or is it the final balance. You could say that magic and technology are like fire and water, nothing is directly created by combining fire and water, but as a result they create steam which can be harnessed. Well in the same way when you combine magic and technology nothing useful can come from combining them, but when you do it creates rifts to a plane of magic (as said by the book Soot Of The Gods). If you could harness these rifts it would be possible to contain the spent magic (magic expelled from these rifts) in a substance such as mithril, creating a sort of magic battery not to produce electricity but magic. If people started using these rifts as a source of magic, it could also start the downfall of technology, and start again the rise of magic. Going on this idea it would be possible to make new magical items, self recharging staves, more powerful swords, bows that create magic ammunition. I mean just picture creating a bow that can shoot arrows made of pure fire, ice, poison or what ever you could think of.
