“At the height of the Victorian Age, an asteroid crossed our orbit. It did not collide with the Earth, but with cursed luck, our planet did not miss the debris in its wake. Millions perished. However Earth was reshaped and the skylands lifted by the strange aetherite ore deposited in the meteorites. Eventually civilization rose again. This is the year 997, and adventure is inescapable in these Dirigible Days.”
