Under the Veil
Only a small portion of the world’s population has remained living in the areas above the Edge. The Highlands is a specific portion of the world wholly outside the influence of the Storm: the exclusive towers built in the Peaks, villages that crowd the Great Shelf, and the Temple of the Sun.
While most of the world relies on crude engineering, a couple of Ancient technologies have grown to become essential to the life the highlanders lead. These include the communicator, and the elusive sunsails. The communicator is actually two things; a pair of metal bands that, when worn, allow instant communication across long distances. The two elected most powerful and wise among the Seers possess them and use them only in times of great need.
