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
