Who needs land, anyway?
"No land... just water below, skies above, and the stars after that. There used to be land, a long time ago when the world was a lot cooler. It's gone now, though, no helping that. Thankfully, someone had the bright idea to make entire islands of land float into the sky. No one knows how it was done anymore, but that suits us just fine. We make our own land out of cloth and magic... I'm an Air Captain, you see... one of many, trying to make my life on the open skies... 'fame and glory, kid' like the old tapes used to say... heh... I love those old tapes... what about you, eh? What've you got for the sky to see...?"

"Valiance" - The religious capital of the world. Known to house worshipers of every religion known to Palmiere, even to those who are the only member of their particular religion. It is completely lawless - fights happen in the streets among rival religions, and it a popular spot for rowdy air captains.
"Babela" - A tower jutting out of the sea. There seems to be no entrances, only windows. It is the greatest magical research facility in Palmiere, and offers tutorship to many young mages. Those who live and work here tend to be obsessive about their magic and machinery, and explosions are common occurrences...
"Transaal" - The good ol' art capital of the world! Situated on a great deal of pontoons floating in the slightest breeze, this massive circus of fantasy and delights of every kind is hard to miss - it's the largest man-created island in all of Palmiere! You can find every single thing that suits your fancy here - anything.
"Prairie" - A series of floating islands in the north-west corner of the world. Their capital is Prairia. A large variety of dog-people live here, and they aren't often seen elsewhere. The land used to belong to the cat-people, until an upheaval brought them to near-extinction. The cat-people resent the dog-people, and often act as pirates, violent towards them. They have no military, but a very efficient police force.
"Bolts" - Canisters of various sizes, filled to the brim with magic, a lot like batteries. These are used to power the various machines of the world: engines, guns, elevators... while there are specialized bolts that add effects, like imbuing what they power with Fire or Lightning, etc, most just produce power.
"Guns" - The world does not have enough metal to produce bullets. In fact, most guns are fashioned out of wood! A "Bolt" is placed into an opening in the bottom, allowing the "Gun" to fire out a lazer-like beam.
This is a freeform RP based in on the Magipunk (Magic + Steampunk) world of Palmiere. I don't have much except for what I have up, so feel free to get creative. We'll see how a plot brews up from what you've got. Remember, however, that I have ruled that "Metal is hard to come by"... so work with that as you will. Let's see what Iwaku can bring me, eh? Use whatever character sheet you're comfortable with.
