The Setting

ÆRENA is set in 1955, on an alternate Earth whose evolution differs greatly from our own. With the discovery of Æther in 1899, this world was propelled into a new age of limitless progress, fueled by the incredible power contained within the tiniest of Æther drops. In what became known as “The Æther Wars”, Earth’s nations built immense flying fortresses and deadly warships, battling each other for control of Æther extractors in the sky. Æther’s limitless possibilities caused rapid advancements in science and technology, but humanity’s lust for it triggered an environmental meltdown. Global warming ensued, the oceans rose, and cataclysmic floods ravaged much of the already scarred and burnt landmass.

In 1947, with Earth on the brink of oblivion, the United Nations was founded to save mankind from itself. Control of the Æther extractors passed to the UN, which was tasked with determining ownership. Ingenuously, the UN invented “The Games”, whereby the Earth’s greatest Champions battled in arenas placed atop the very Æther extractors they sought to control. To the victors went the spoils, but the thrill of conquest was fleeting; in 12 months’ time, The Games would commence again.
