The world is new but first principles are not. Mankind has just learned to live differently. To build differently.

No longer does transportation consume net energy- it now generates net energy. The kinetic energy generated via traversal along this innovative transportation grid is used to power the grid, and leaves adequate surplus to power entire cities.

Each neighborhood of a city puts forth a team of racers everyday to generate the energy quota for sustaining daily transportation. These brave racers are called the Quizan and speed through different parts of the grid everyday. The Quizans big gains lie in successfully executing off-road jumps in free space, allowing them cover certain routes nearly friction free.

Some neighborhoods, unfortunately, have gone rogue. Their racers are the Panatin. While skilled racers themselves, the Panatin offset their distaste for covering distances by preventing the Quizan from reaching their daily goals. Using interference as a tactic, the Panatin gain when they lock on to a Quizan pod long enough to leech energy.

Who are you?

The Game

In the first part of the twentieth century, space inhabitation was advocated as a means to tackle our population growth. However, an obscure scientific firm in San Francisco, California saw things differently. They figured that the earth itself could be a new core for us to develop vertically. They argued that sea level infrastructure was a thing of the past, and high altitude development was the way of the future.

Their proposal was sanctioned by all powerful governments globally, and soon after, they got to work on the first anti-gravity civilization platform. This new framework of buildings and transportation relied heavily on harnessing our collective kinetic energy. Everything they built was based on this simple premise.

Each of these units of civilization was developed, owned and operated by this single corporation: Xanadu Heights, Inc. They made motion a necessity, and energy became the new currency. The continued existence of a civilization now depended entirely on the levels of energy they were able to supply back into the XH Grid.

Naturally, the bravest members of each city came forth to help generate enough energy to stay afloat. Some civilizations simply couldn't do it, and were submerged. Most did just about enough to remain a part of the grid. However, a few of these civilizations really pushed the boundaries of generating energy. They understood that this WAS going to be the new world order, and wanted to do their bit to insure continuity of their people, long after they were gone.
