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?

Stray in the Void

The background music written for this piece by Koray Birenheide
Where endless waters many-fold
And waves are sluggish trav’ling far
Where time is young and men are old
And trapped beyond a million stars

The dying see it clearly, though
The living they might wander
Deep inside and deep below
As wise men strife to ponder.

Can you hear the bells that chime so bright
In darkness waving endless spume
They call you to the afterlife
Go now or be consumed…

Inside the waters calm and still
Your ship will drift with furled in sails
And perseverance you’ll need and skill
When you drift inside the void; searching for the gate

A dark, empty space and inside there is only the gate
The one that leaves the void
The one that leads to our plane,
The one we keep inside.

Two worlds connected by this ocean,
The one that all know to be real,
The one that shifts in constant motion
And in-between the void, this sea

We drift towards an endless horizon
One that we can and cannot see
Our mind is water, our will is iron
We drift towards the fate we meet

Hush now my friend,
we both will go
Where the bells chime high,
where the drums beat low

we all are stray, stray in the void

And the sky is drawn in endless phantasms
In half-remembered dreams
That twitch like mortal schisms, spasms
So beautiful and mad to be seen

Where the clockwork’s ticking from afar
And endless gears and age old metal
Creek loud and somehow muffled, raw
We seek it, following a fallen petal

There is no wind, there never was
All that is mighty in either worlds
The void has brought to naught
As life itself unwinds, unfurls

Will I wander here forever
On this ship that is my mind
I am an eternal traveler
The drums, they beat, the bells, they chime

The waves that sometimes spill the deck
Are made of nothingness alone
They wash the planks to emptiness
And make my ship creek, moan

I turn the wheel times left, times right
It matters not I know
As I drive deeper into the void
The oar is broken as the bow

And so I go on eternally
The gate seems never far and yet
As the silence beckons me
How am I filled with so much dread?

Yes, we are stray
we all are stray, stray in the void
