What is Skyreach?
Skyreach is about roleplay in a world where the discovery of a lighter-than-air crystal, Arium, has lead to the rise of flying battleships dominating the skies, while the nations controlling these powerful warships contest with each other for dominance in a pre-WW1 quasi-Europe with steampunk elements. It is a nation-based roleplay, focused mostly on politics and warfare between nations vying for dominance.
Note- While the region has some steampunk elements, it is important to note this is not a true steampunk RP in the common sense; a lot of things normally found in steampunk aren't found here. So if you were looking for clockwork automatons and victorian-era magic, you will be disappointed.
What genre is this region?
Good question. This region doesn't really fit any definite label; it's loosely described as extremely low fantasy with a hybrid blend of steampunk/dieselpunk elements and inspired by Ghibli films. Even the founder is not really sure.
What time period is it set in?
Loosely? It's set pre-WW1, in the time when the European powers were engaged in a massive post-Industrial Revolution arms race and the Old World was a hotbed of nationalist tension.
However, a lot of technology from that time is missing, and some tech and ideas from the future are present. But generally, it's pre-WW1, roughly 1890-1910.
It's an imaginary world in which flying warships are a thing and an element that can't possibly exist does. The dates aren't going to match up well if at all.
