Over eight hundred years ago, war raged across Amasheer. In an act of unspeakable violence, a chemical agent was unleashed, poisoning the atmosphere. To contain the spread of the toxin, the magic wielding, dark skinned Maju-Orcericians created a perpetual cloud layer to hold the poison beneath it. The Maju-Orcericians took as many people as they could to the highest peaks of the world, above the cloud. The survivors constructed immense floating cities over the next eight centuries, starting new lives and rebuilding the population...and a new era was begun.
But the eight centuries of stability created and maintained by the Maju-Orcericians is faltering. Technology has changed only very slowly over the years. The people have been relying on steam, solar and wind for the majority of their power, and dirigibles and biplanes for travel. The scion of an old family line is employing new technologies, and using them to gain control of multiple floating cities.
A young Maju-Orcerician may represent the next evolutionary step of her people. Unaware of her importance, she seeks her own destiny.
The prospector crew of the former warship Thunderbolt lead fairly normal lives. Yet they have in their explorations uncovered secrets from the surface below that could change life for all above the cloud.
The winds of change swirl through the clouds of authority. The world above the cloud will be forever altered, but no one can predict if it will be for good or ill?
