The Empire is officially ruled by Empress Sadhana Serra,but theday-to-day governance is handled by the House of Lords.TheEmpire’s power comes from the navy and the blooded noblehouses,as well as control of the small rocks of land that floatthroughout the Wild Blue.The Empire lays claim to all stable worlds floating within it’sterritory and regularly sends skyships out to investigate newrocks that have dropped from the upper Blue or surfaced from thedepths.

Every book from every world in the Blue is here.Even more sub-versive material—like
The Empress Eats Puppies
and other CrimsonSky propaganda—are kept in secure rooms by the curators.When you need a book,this is the place to go!

The Empire is not always present or welcome in the Expansion.Only half the worlds here have any established imperial presence.Food is scarce and water is scarcer.The poor live on the bottomside of worlds not big enough to create full gravity on the under-side.Children are tied down to the ground to make sure they don’taccidentally fall—or get pushed—into the depths.The really poorlive on the bottom of worlds so small they don’t even have any realgravity of their own.Here,floor repairmen can always find work.

Located on the bottom of a world not big enough to have it’s ownsignificant gravity,Bottom ’s Up is attached at the ceiling and fea-tures many transparent floor sections for viewing the sky below.This is a great place to grab a drink,watch a sunset,or catch oneof the thrice-daily squid-watching cruises.Cruises are guaranteedto find a sky squid or you get another cruise free.Sky squid are ac-tually quite majestic creatures when they’re not tearing your shipapart.Nearby are giant jellybird matings grounds.During matingseason they create quite the spectacle,refracting the light and col-ors of the sun and the depths to create a fantastic show.
