The time has come!

Just now, I launched the patreon page, which means the last piece of the puzzle has fallen into place.

With this I can now start promoting the site throughout my networks and start it all up. I am very much looking forward to you guys reading my book and hope you will consider sharing your experience on our Discord server, or the Community tab on the Patreon site. In time and depending on how popular the story becomes, I may add new community features like a built-in forum and perhaps podcast segments such as fan-interviews or poetry readings.

Until then, I am going to fill out more articles on Aqualon's World Anvil page and finish working through the next chapters.

Enjoy reading and have a great day,

Koray Birenheide

Hello dear readers,

I have excellent news! Or to-be old news, since I have not yet started telling anyone about the site at this point yet. Nevertheless, I am sure future readers such as yourself are going to enjoy seeing the beginnings of this great journey well documented; or at least commented.

As the title of this post may already suggest, the deed is done, and the first articles have begun to populate Aqualon's space on that most marvelous of sites, World Anvil. As you can probably see, there is a permanent link to Aqualon's World Anvil page at the top of this website, and I very much encourage everyone who enjoys reading the story of Aqualon to take a look at the growing base of articles on the world, its characters, its locations, its historical events, and just about anything you could want to know.

The first entries so far are a map I drew for the Middle Lands and a corresponding article describing the area in more detail as well as the first article for one of the locations within the Middle Lands. Additionally, there is the first timline event, namely "The Age of Heroes", which happened quite some time before the story in the book.

At this point I would like to issue some special thanks to Tyrannoninja and I-A-Grafix for graciously providing some really epic photoshop brushes for map making to the public, you guys rock, and I will contact you regarding getting you in on patreon rewards for free as soon as everything is up and running smoothly. Thanks also to GeneralVyse for creating the beautiful worn-out paper background I used for the map.

Here's a peek at the map for you, check out the real thing (which already has one actual, clickable marker!) on the World Anvil page.

Now all that remains before the project can fully start up is to finish the Patreon page. I'll try to take the time to create a video tomorrow. ^-^

Have a great day,

Koray Birenheide


I have now finished working chapter 1 over and publishing it under the "Book I" section of this site. It took less time than I thought, since I already had started correcting and editing the first one to two chapters a few months back.

Before I get to work on chapter 2, I want to focus on the first World Anvil entry and creating an introduction video for my Patreon page ^-^

I wish you all the best of luck and hope you have fun reading the prologue and chapter 1 of Aqualon, Rise of the Broken,

Koray Birenheide
