The Uncharted Skies
A fragmented realm of countless islands drifting through a boundless ether.
A sourceless glow from the skies above that warms the Kingdoms of the Kin and keeps the Children of the Dark at bay.
A hidden world below — a shadowed dominion of lethal dangers and ancient enemies.
The potent force of elemental power that forever blows from the Dark toward the Light.
The Explorer Knights
A powerful cadre of scholars, warriors and elementalists who explore the shadows, de- fend the Kingdoms and defy the Dark.
The Ancient Technology
Arc-powered wonders scavenged from the remnants of the long-vanished Masters of the Wind.
The Twilight Frontier
The shadowed realm of ancient ruins and lost science — the final battleground between Kin and Child.
