Gahkthun of the Golden Lightning Steam Edition-POSTMORTEMNov 18
The year is 1908. The 20th century is still young.
An unfamiliar 20th century – in an unfamiliar world.
This is a world that experienced a 19th century very different from our own. A world filled with innumerable steam-powered Engines.
The unnaturally rapid development of this steam civilization has left the world’s skies shrouded in grey… and its seas dyed in shades of black.
“Sea” – Once, the word suggested an expanse of blue. Today, it refers to something dark and putrid.
The former harbor city of Marseille in the European Kingdom of France looks out on a sea as black as any other. But these particular waters are home to something that can’t be found anywhere else on Earth…
A massive artificial island, solid and imposing as a fortress. A city in its own right, but also a school; a place bursting with life and color.
Its formal name: The Marseille Offshore Academia.
