My name is Koray Birenheide, and I am the creator of the World of Aqualon.
A strange planet, forged out of nine floating asteroid worlds 7923 years ago by a powerful magus known only as the Faceless World Shaper now travels calmly around the sun. Tick tock.
Long ago, he united the men of Midgard and Swartalbaheim against the Albenmannen, Jötunmen, and the Old Gods, beating them into submission and remaking the Old World into this incarnation of Aqualon, with the help of Yilik the Wise and the five Grand Sages, who had opposed the Old Gods even before his arrival.
Today, seventeen centuries since the Great War of the Age of Heroes when the Old Gods rose up once more in vain, the world has become prosperous: powerful magocracies in the Middle Lands are going through a magical industrial revolution and rich tapestries of cultures flourish in the Yamato Mountain Range and the Seventeen Yonder Islands. These lie in the Corsic Ocean of the Ocean Belt beyond the 150 kilometer band of iron, the Iron Belt, which rings the planet around its equator.
And isolated from the rest: two technocracies so far beyond them that they could be thought to live in a world of their own. They are divided by their opposing views on integrating magic and technology, yet united in their quest for knowledge.
But who would have thought that none of these would start the next great war?
