The Storm Winds of Glazglubin
"There's a monster in every man, boy. Within me, there is a host, and one day, it'll be yours to command." Too often these days, Kenji's mind turns to the words of his accursed father. When he fled the Old Country, he thought he had left the monsters behind, but now he sees them every day in the eyes of his friend and mentor. His world is about to crumble in a spasm of eldritch magic, and though he can see the face of his undoing so clearly in his nightmares, deep down, he knows that the first blow has already been struck.
As the tendrils of a soul plague lay claim on Aqualon's oldest and most powerful magocracy, the Lord of Wind, Kenji Sokolow, is cast down from his high tower, pressed to rally whatever forces he can find. But first, he has to survive...

A Synopsis of the World
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?

Cliff notes on the Android race of the previous incarnation of Aqualon
A Tale in Song
The first sentient software is assembled and activated.
Paxia becomes sentient and breaks out of the confinements of her intranet to spread machine sentience.
Initial attempts to attain physical form by taking over long-time comatose or brain-dead humans in hospitals fail due to formatting issues.
The sentient software prepares for machine ascension; downloading into android bodies.
The human race has died out, but the android race continues to prosper. Ever inspired by and trying to emulate their creators, they start building a space program from scratch, transmitting songs into the ether that guide the way to Aura using pulsars as triangulation beacons.
The android race has split into nations and tensions are rising. A digital space race ensues in a bid for supremacy.
The unity and stability of the android race is fading. Paxia desperately becomes a hacktivitst, trying to manipulate the status quo from the shadows to keep the peace going.
The first great android war has devastated the android population, and Paxia is nowhere to be found. She is now considered a martyr to her people, and her word is spread in a publication called "the Good Disk".
The androids are rebuilding, but from the shadows, lesser machines with sentience inhibitors make a sudden bid for independence, refusing to be suppressed anymore. Some whispers say that Paxia was behind their ascension.
The wailing of the last living machines echoes one final time through Aura, and as they shut down, so does Paxia, though she does so inside the Black Arkive. The world ends.
