The Shattered Isles are the broken remnants of the world following the cataclysm a thousand years ago. The cataclysm cracked the sun and cast the world into perpetual darkness. It also broke the Gates of Death, unleashing vengeful spirits and demons on the world. Humanity huddles in crowded cities protected by a combination of industrial marvels and fantastic magic like the lightning towers. Inside, the cities resemble the crowded industrial centers of the 1870's complete with rampant crime and corruption, as well as desperate living conditions. These cities are ruled over by an immortal emporer and the most wealthy of their residents. The lands between these cities are vast wastelands full of supernatural horrors, choking vapors, and desolation.
