A massive airship called the Volatere. It is a symbol of power, a cruise liner and a battleship. The Volatere is the ultimate in engineering and architectural achievement, it is the flagship and harbinger of the Unborn, the gods incarnate.
The Volatere provides inspiring views and grand accommodation to its guests, and represents the hand of the Unborn as it travels the globe inspiring worship and loyalty to the Unborn and their administrators. The aministrators are called the Shaidaran Priests and they have an entire section of the ship dedicated solely to their needs.
The City in the Sky
The Volatere’s central promenade overviews the city at its core, itself a wonder to behold. Great statues and landscaped architecture inspire all who visit on nearly every level and deck. Massive apartment complexes and recreational areas see to it that all are made comfortable.
The Harbinger of the Unborn
As a battleship, the Volatere has a permanent contingent of Alphon Class Security Constructs and a full division of lancer shock troopers aboard. It is an envoy to the various areas of the First Empire, and it has been known to end conflicts merely by its arrival.
The Depths of the Ship
The needs of this city in the sky are great. A massive warehouse and recycling facility Holds in cold storage provisions enough for the citizens to live in comfort for nearly any length of journey.
Massive Engines provide lift
Two Massive engines and a number of smaller stabilizer engines keep the Volatere airborn. Bending elementary physical laws and energy states, they provide enough power to keep the ship flying with ease despite its great size.

So far the journey has gone smooth and rather pleasant for you, with opululent quarters, grand views, elegant architecture, and many attractive women aboard and ample time to pursue them. Yours is a blessed life it seems…
Mahule was once a Shaidaran Priest. In spite of his great stature it seems that he wanted more than to be the hand of the Unborn, but aspired to be a god himself. At least thats what the Shaidarans teach as the accepted cause of Mahule’s rebellion. Regardless of his true motives, Mahule and his followers seek to usurp the Unborn, but one cannot oppose those who have ruled for thousands of years easily or without great cost.
