Searchers of the Ather Skies

Submitter: Bob Bersch
Description: The Ather Skies is a vast space of breathable air and floating planetoids (some with small orbiting 'suns' others in 'solar systems'). Every 'planet' has life on it. Some people are born with the ability to make devices that can tinker with the very fabric of reality, making basically magical devices. Given the tech level I'm seeing a kind of steam punkish kind of setting with Ather Zeppelins of various types allowing for exploration, trade, etc. between the floating states. There are wars and battles at various places but in general it if very peaceful on the surface.
