Skyfall

Skyfall is a world torn between the legacy of a deeply spiritual past and incredible breakthroughs in technology. In the time of great revelations, they burned most of their world creating technological wonder. It wasn't until the reclamation later that they built the megalopolis, bubbles of maintained landscape around them (pockets of what once was), and became almost fanatically devoted to only "reasonable use" of technology.

Three great cities rise above all the rest, each with a gate to another world: Celle to Kosmos, Dargun to Caust, and Elstra to Tirene. The gate itself lies at the edge of each cities' bubble. During the bubbles regeneration cycle it becomes accessible to the undead that roam the lands outside the bubble. Trade between them and the citizens of the megalopolis' has been established with all worlds.

The citizens of the great cities have a huge demand for rich foods they are not allowed to make because of their spiritual code, and trade high-tech trinkets for it in no small amount. The undead in the wastes are more magically minded, looking for things to enhance their power everywhere.

It is a mandate of their code to make several pilgrimages each year to temples in the wasteland, and dealing with the undead it always a chore. While not dire enemies, the undead aren't above attacking those on a journey to gain the resources they need. Citizens know that essential technology repels the undead, and excess attracts them. (Literally the undead have no use for essential tech)

Pictures of Skyfall


Prowler


A Prowler roams the streets of the towering megalopolis Celle ensuring no one is in excess of the strict moral code.


Bubbles


The land outside each megalopolis is a verdant paradise as maintained by a myriad assortment of amazing automated technology. The people call this the bubble of that city.


Temples


The only thing that still exists before the rampant modernization of Skyfall are the temples scattered in the wastelands between each megalopolis (outside their bubbles). They hold immense meaning for the serene and spiritual people of the land.


Cloaks and Ravens


Outside the bubbles the undead, driven by spiritual energy dominate the land. Only the pennant may journey to the temples safely (or those with suitable armament :D).


The Darkness


In the centuries since the megalopolis' formed, a dark force the people of Skyfall simply call The Darkness has creeped back into the world. These take form as Beasts in the waste that sometimes try and invade the bubble of a megalopolis. Both the undead and the living people of Skyfall are maligned by these monsters.
