A disk the size of a modern metropolis hovers over the Ninth World, darkening the sky and the lives of those below it. What secrets lie within this mysterious artifact of the prior worlds? What power keeps it above the world, a flying shin in the night? Questions like these plague those who have seen this remnant of the old civilizations of Earth. Some are even inspired to invent or find some way to join the socalled Skyscrape up in the heavens and bring its treasures back down.
