Chaos and war has erupted on the surface of the Earth bringing about poverty to every nation. The Kingdoms of the Humans, and Elves are controlled by greedy rulers vying for control of the planet. These lords have placed heavy restrictions on the use of steam-powered and magical airships alike, stopping many from returning to the sky cities above. However such laws have never stopped those who wish to break them.
Many years ago people used to live above the earth in floating cities. These cities were powered by magic crystals constructed by ancient wizards. Together with steam technology these crystals created enough power to sustain large cities and keep them in the air. This same technology was used to power other machines such as airships, which came in various sizes, and that depended on the size crystal that powered it. However, the technology has been lost over the years and most lack the ability to create such ships.
You are a commoner, born from a long line of thieves and mercenaries. Like your fathers and mothers before, you have been taught the way of the blade, firearm, and magick. Despite this training you are just one person and the rule of law keeps you pretty much in your place. However things are destined to change, and you must gather your allies and rise to the challenge.
Chapter One: Reach The Sky.
You awake in your bed aloft the pub that you and a couple of your mates have ownership. It appears you've slept through the day, and its nearly time for you to take your evening shift. You make your way down the wooden steps from the loft and enter the pubs' kitchen. The cooks are hard at work making the "soup of the day" which is the same every day. The smell is enough to make you gag, you dare not taste it, and so you move on. The bar is noisy and full of strangers, none of the regulars appear to be around. Anyway business is business and you begin your duties.
