Treasure hunter x (?)- (Steampunk Fantasy)
The land below the clouds belongs to the “World Eaters”. Dragons. Beasts that crawled straight out of legend and the ground thousands of years ago to lay waste to the world and everyone who lived in it. The surface now belongs to them, while the skies are ours, thanks to a choking layer of ash and sulfur even those fire-spitters can’t get through.
Some have managed to find solid ground on the peaks of the tallest mountains, while the largest cities are held aloft thanks to the great airships that evacuated the surface. Pilots in ships of their own are the lifeblood of the world now, sailing above the Ash and keeping the fragmented world together.
And there are a few who dare to venture back down to the empty Surface. Where barren rock is bathed in perpetual twilight, and assailed by acid rain and abrasive storms of glass and ash. They pick through the ruins of the old world, stealing from the dragon’s claim to bring their treasures back with them to the skies.
