    Excerpts from On The Lords Of The Sky, unknown author:

    "...for it is Them who rule this Earth from Above: They, who were once Mortals, took to the hallowed Skies with Unearthly power, when the World was young, and made the Skies Theirs..."

    "...boisterous and merry, the Scarred One welcomes any and all Challengers, rejoicing in honest Battle; He bears no will towards anyone, even His most bitter enemies..."

    "...even now, the Priests of the Nameless travel through the Whole of Usea, their faces always hidden from Strangers. Like their Master, they offer sage Advice to every Man in this World, driving them towards Greateness..."

    "The Eternal, unstoppable as Death itself, is worshiped by almost all Men, and even the flock of the other Lords of the Sky render due Homage unto Him, for the Eternal selflessly braved countless Dangers in the name of Justice. In memory of his Deeds, courthouses bear the Symbol of the Eternal, a Ribbon with only one Side..."

    "..but that would not be the End of the Burning Phantom, He who was once a dark Demon and rained Death upon the Land; no, he would return once more, as a great Hero, when the time was right..."

    "The Demon Lord, praised and reviled across the Land, appears in three forms in the legends: that of a savage, hellish Warrior, the literal Demon Lord represented in the Belkan tragedies; that of a cold-hearted Soldier, who sacrificed Innocents in the name of Duty, the Demon Lord that manipulated the denizens of Hell at his own Whim; and that of a brave Knight, protector of the Meek and Savior of the World, Demon Lord by Right of Conquest over Hades..."

    "...for in the halls of the Golden King there is a magnificent painting of his Nation's protector: The Winged One, the Bearer of the Talisman, at the vanguard of a Host of Light, charging towards the jaws of Death..."

    "...the Southern Cross is the name given to those four Stars; in Southern myth, they are the emblem of their greatest Warrior, Nemesis of the Evil that once scoured the World, for whom lies are Anathema..."

    They say the Demon Lord had a companion: a one-winged fairy, always sitting at his shoulder. Despite his diminutive size, he was almost the equal of the Demon Lord in martial prowess - and in some obscure legends, he even challenges his friend in single combat, a bittersweet duel the Demon Lord barely wins.

    Like the actual Ace Combat setting, it's just an alternate Earth, no supernatural events involved. And more than setting building, this thread was more to bounce around this "the events of AC as mythology for another world" I've had for some time.

    That being said, you could make this Fantasy Ace Combat by giving everyone access to winged cavalry and air units of all sorts (the aforementioned griffons and wyverns, drakes, unicorns, hippogriffs, floating islands for superships, etc.)

    I've got no idea of what kind of system would it take to run it, though - modern air combat games are niche enough as it is, and this is even more off the wall.

    From the Chronicle of Forgotten Arms, by Gennette the Scribe:

    "The Fandi Fictor was said to have been sent to Earth as punishment for humanity's sins, but it is not natural to expect men to stand still against utter destruction. Thus, they forged many great weapons of steel and thunder and fire, that they may avoid their fate; but while the world was not destroyed, the Fandi Fictor scarred the land horribly, as testament to the wrath of Heaven; and men of dark hearts used the sacred weapons for their own petty purposes. So begins this chronicle."

    The whole poem from the game might work:
    "When history witnesses a great change Razgriz reveals itself.
    First as a dark demon.
    As a demon it uses it power to rain death upon the land, and then it dies.
    However after a period of slumber Razgriz returns.

    As the demon sleeps, man turns on man.
    Its own blood, and madness soon cover the earth.
    From the depths of despair awaken the Razgriz.
    Its raven wings ablaze in majestic light.

    Amidst the eternal waves of time.
    From a ripple of change shall the storm rise.
    Out of the abyss peer the eyes of a demon.
    Behold the Razgriz, its wings of black sheath.

    The demon soars through the dark skies.
    Fear and Death trail its shadow beneath.
    Until Men united wield a hallowed sabre.
    In Final Reckoning, the beast is slain."

    "The Host of Light charged towards fair Gracemeria to rescue their lord, the Golden King, and his people; and it was there that the Winged One faced a dire Warrior, whose arms were blazoned in Midnight and Crimson, in single combat, for lesser men were cast aside by the Winged One's shining halberd and the cowled fiend's necrotic blade. Courage faltered amongst the Host as the Winged One staggered under the foe's relentless assault, but not even powers from beyond the grave could deny He Who Bears The Talisman. The Warrior of Midnight and Crimson was finally broken, and his men were scattered to the four winds."

    "And though Gracemeria the Fair had been liberated, and the Golden King had returned to his throne, the Host of Light was restless, and took no part in the feasts and celebrations, and mounted watch all night. Blessed be their vigilance, for the enemy had stolen one of the sacred weapons Men forged to fight the Fandi Fictor in the olden ages, and the Candles that Burned the Earth fell from the night sky like hailstorm; yet the Host of Light hacked and slashed at them, with the courage of lions, until the Sun rose and all the Candles were snuffed.

    For 'rule of cool' you have /tg/'s own Dive in the Sky homebrew game. It was originally based on the Strike Witches anime, but it can work with anything using air combat.

    For 'realistic'... perhaps In Harm's Way: Wild Blue would do. It's about mercenary pilots in the modern world, and it can also do ground vehicle and infantry action.

    Know this then, Gryphus was born to a peaceful land, then beset by war by a neighbour whose bloodthirst had been borne out of plague and famine. They unleashed a score of evils to his peaceful land, and so Gryphus took up the Southern Cross and did battle with those foes.

    First he fought against the Gleipnir, giant and invisible, and with a single one of it's ten fingers, whole hosts could be blotted out, and it's lance of light could pierce even the strongest of armours.
    Gryphus suprised the beast in a snowstorm, and cut off each of it's ten fingers, he then persued it by it's tracks in the snow until it came to a village where he slew the beast and threw it's remains into the river...

    It's turrets would hurl magic arrows of infinite number at it's foes, and the enemy had suffered great bloodshed to take the tower. Now however, ancient magics had enbiggened the towers fearsome defences, and now each tower shone a beam of light that cast death upon all it touched.

    But Gryphus cared not, and nimbly danced between the shafts of light, and with a single swing of his weapon, broke each turret one by one.

    And as the turrets fell silent, the furious enemy tried to destroy the tower outright with their siege weapons, but Gryphus cast their stones and bolts out of the very sky with his blade and seeing the day was lost, the enemy turned craven and fled.

    With their King saved and the land now liberated, the people cheered and rejoiced..."

    They fought over land, and over sea, and in a cave in the straights of Danern they found the Kings stockpile of ancient fire magic.

    When they finally faced the dark lord in the fortress of Archelon, he was flanked by the Knights of Alect.
    Each who rode the dogs of Fenrir, abominations that granted invisibility to themselves and their riders. The knights fell upon Gryphus's men and exacted a grievious toll, but the hero saw their weakness, for in the moment of their attack they became as clear as day, and in that single moment of chance, he slew each knight one by one.

    Seeing their knights defeated, in the end the people of Lesanth turned on their king and tore him into a hundred pieces.

    And Gryphus, who weilded the Southern Cross returned to his quiet farm, to live out his days in peace."

    Traditional song sung as an exiled person regains his honor and returns to the village in the country of Osea

    Attributed to Oka Nieba


    The journey begins
    Starts from within
    Things that I need to know

    The song of the bird
    Echoed in words
    Flying for the need to fly

    Thoughts endless in flight
    Day turns to night
    Questions you ask your soul

    Which way do I go?
    How fast is too slow?
    The journey has its time within us

    If a man can fly over an ocean
    And no mountains can get in his way
    Will he fly on forever
    Searching for something to believe

    From above I can see from the heavens
    Down below I see the storm rages on
    And somewhere in the answer
    There is a hope to carry on

    When I finally return
    Things that I learn
    Carry me back to home

    The thoughts that I feed
    Planting a seed
    With time will begin to grow

    The more that I try
    The more that I fly
    The answer in itself will be there
