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.

A Synopsis of the World

Seventeen centuries of peace have allowed the people of Aqualon to flourish. Since the Great War, now known as 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?

The Island Paramani of the Nyingma Island Group has deep holes in its center, where men have mined the rock for centuries, unearthing precious quartz from the ground, which has had a million uses over the course of history: A crystal prized by many different nations for quite varied applications.
— — From the Aqualon Grand World Atlas, 2nd Edition


The island of Paramani is about 3 kilometers in diameter and up to 344 meters high at its highest point. A volcano takes up much of its 330 hectares of approximate surface area. The stratovolcanic layers of Paramani are laced with different types of quartz and sulfur, and during the roughly one hundred year long dormant periods of the volcano, pools of slightly sulfuric water form natural hot springs in various places within and around the caldera.   While the mountain itself is relatively barren, in part due to the excessive mining operations, the thin strips of verdant forest around the southern coastal line house some unique versions of animals found only on the Nyingma island group.

Natural Resources

The natural resources of Paramani are various gemstones but mostly quartz, rose quartz, and amethyst. Additionally, large sulfur deposits are stored within the caldera.   Limestone deposits are also littered across the eastern coast of the island, and its location within the Corsic Ocean and extensive reefs that formed around volcanic rock make the area a treasure trove for fishing, crab fishing, and mussels.
