Legends of War: Synnefopolis, the Cloud City

The Stygians had only a few centuries ago gained Steam technology, which is seen quite rarely, except for a single city, a city built from that technology, and then lifted into the skies, carrying along with it thousands of Stygians, most of which are engineers, working daily to sustain this marvelous piece of technology, and then there are hundreds of warriors, armed with the state of the art armor & weaponry. This ship has been airborne for less then a century and it was designed and lead by Michanikos, the Stygian who had developed Atmomichani, the Stygian version of Steam Technology. The land of Stygia does not have any gunpowder, so they are lacking in rifles or cannons, but instead, the brilliance of Michanikos had lead him to utilize the power of the Sun God himself, so he constructed huge Mirror Towers, to harness sunlight & focus it into a beam of pure burning energy.

But even though this city is stationed high above the clouds, it did not have a smooth ride. Many times did Garmaria, Chaos followers, and even Dwarfs try to take the city and claim it as their own or destroy it, but the city had managed to survive, it was even known as a trade port for some friendly(-er) Gnomes or Dwarf fliers and even a rare Dragon. The closest time Synnafopolis got to destruction was when a huge fleet of Cyro Ice Barges attacked at night, so the Mirror Towers were useless. Many Elementals reached the city and the cities defense force tried to fend them off. It was a bloody night & it was thought that the city would fall, until the Sun God blessed them with a very sunny day. At Dawn, the mirror towers were capable of blinding the enemy, at Morning, the Ice Ships had started to melt at their light, & finally at Noon, the Mirror Towers were capable of slicing the Ice Barges in half with ease.

By the end of the battle, the bodies of the fallen Chaos warriors had been dropped from the sky, on to a cloud, but little did the Stygians know, is that just below the cloud was da 'oly 'ead, and later that night, the Trolls had a larger then normal ritual dance. But after that incident, the city did not have many major conflicts, & had been sailing through the clouds smoothly.
