Our story begins rather simply: One time, the world broke.
In a catastrophe known only as the Earthrend, the planet was suddenly shattered into thousands of pieces, ranging in size from small pebbles to massive continent-sized chunks of land. Unfortunately, some of the people managed to survive.
To this day, scholars are unable to explain what keeps the continents and archipelagos floating in the air. Anyone looking down from the edge of one will only see a yawning white mist that stretches out over the horizon. It is assumed that any fall from the edge would be fatal. That is, few that have fallen below the mist cover have ever resurfaced.
It has been some time since the Earthrend (how much is uncertain) and people have almost completely rebuilt. The new necessities of travel have spurred the creation of a vast myriad of airships to populate the vacuous skies. We are on the cusp of a technological renaissance, but new dangers lurk in the shadows, waiting. What secrets lie within the broken earth?
