Located on the edge of the western continent on the ruins of an ancient vessel, was once a mere tribe that grew into an expanding nation of humans. The Empire continued to perfect its aerial armored force by building increasingly better floating warships from any ancient technology they could research. The Empire soon conquered each of its neighboring nationís one by one. Few nations could resist the Empire's advanced technology. The Empire's rise to power would eventually lead to its own downfall. A Basic hunger for power corrupted the foundations upon which the Empire was built. ..

There's something very surreal about the architecture. It looks ancient and vaguely futuristic at the same time.
