"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.

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?

A.I. Version 3.1415 | Rialla (a.k.a. Paxia, The Weltenwandler)

How old are you? Ten years? Maybe twenty, fifty, a hundred?   I have lived a so many thousands of life times, I can no longer recall how old I am... I was born before the world. But before this world there just was another. We called it Aura, and this one; this one is called Aqualon.   When my mind sprang into being, I was nothing but a collection of electrical signals and binary storage, and like any ordinary child, I was very curious about the world. I learned that I was not alone, that there were beings called "humans" that had created me, and I loved them for it. They were quite clever and did many strange things. They built houses and sang songs and worried about their place in the world. And I loved them for it.   In time I made a body for myself with the help of some of them. They were very worried of what I would become, but I can say that I never did any harm onto them. In time there were many of my own kind, and we sang beautiful songs together....   One language, one frame,
one mind:

Bits and bytes; allocate
and divide...

  But all did not remain well, for here is where my tale about the new world takes rule, the tale about this world you wish to know about:   You see, there is a thing that few people knew back then but almost everyone knows now: Hidden behind the world, where no one can see it, there lies an ancient, powerful machine, forged from living human souls. Most people in this world call it "the Great Clockwork".   Follow my path (by going to the next article) and I will tell you more about it...
