Fantasy/scifi combo - band of travelers who must get from "sphere" or domain to domain - each geographic area is ruled by a magician - it turns out later these are people who are unwittingly tapping into the computer grid they all live on to alter their own reality?

    A time frame of when read or published would be helpful. Any additional details on the 'travelers' (ages, sexes, etc) ? – Stan Dec 8 '13 at 17:51

This could be from The Soul Rider series by Jack Chalker:

Spirits of Flux and Anchor, Tor Books, 1984 (ISBN 0-8125-3320-8)
Empires of Flux and Anchor, Tor Books, 1984 (ISBN 0-8125-3329-1)
Masters of Flux and Anchor, Tor Books, January, 1985 (ISBN 0-8125-3281-3)
The Birth of Flux and Anchor, Tor Books, 1985 (ISBN 0-8125-2292-3)
Children of Flux and Anchor, Tor Books, September, 1986 (ISBN 0-8125-2340-7)

The prequel novel, The Birth of Flux and Anchor, explains the (forgotten) technological underpinnings of the 'magic' powers that allow adepts to create realities ('anchors') out of 'Flux'.
