Maelstrom takes place in a steampunk setting where a precious resource called Flagesium powers the remaining bastions of humanity. As far as anyone knows, all humans either live in one of two cities, the floating utopia of Elesium, or the smoggy city below, Dusk. Flagesium is acquired from a great mine called the Delve, where mutant slaves extract raw Flagesium and ship it to Dusk, where it is refined and flown to Elesium to keep the City in the Sky afloat in return for clean food, water, and medicine. This is necessary because a perpetual, extremely potent, toxic canopy called the Maelstrom resides over Dusk and the wasteland that surrounds it. This symbiotic relationship has kept the civilization alive for centuries, but as is the case with every system, some people have been benefitting from it more than others, and many of those that have been getting the raw end of the deal would like to do something about it...
