Physical Setting
-always twilight
-night and day formed by the cycle of Vale’s energy, no time zone differences
-glowing ground
-glowing plants
-no sun
-nights are nearly pitch black apart from the city

Technology
-steampunk
-handheld things dont work as well at night, since they work off limited reserves of Vale, but most buildings and such are on a power grid powered by a plant that has a more direct connection to the Vale. A device can be charged at an outlet in about 20 minutes.
-powered by “Vale Callers,” which are devices that draw power directly from the Vale.
-no fossil fuels (no fossil record, either)
-trains, planes, automobiles, fit a 20s-30s aesthetic, with a bit more flair for coolness.
-planes can’t fly terribly high before losing power, as the further you are from the planet, the less power is able to be collected.
-space travel exists, but lacks the ability to get far off world. Rockets are powered by giant reserves of Vale energy
-normal physics and normal chemical properties apply
-Vale Callers have been getting more efficient and smaller over the years, allowing for handheld devices and the like.
