Skyland is the world what came form a great and mysterious cataclysm, that pulled the Earth apart into countless floating chunks of earth adrift in open sky. The floating landmass are like islands. Movement between islands are done by aircraft. Mapping on this world is made difficult do to the way landmass is constantly drifting, breaking apart form impacts or erosion, or merging form impact or clumping. Without a natural means to collect and hold water (no rivers, lakes or aquifers), fresh water is a precious resource.
