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?

Tale #1: On the Signing of the Null Concord
Senator Cadmir dabbed his forehead with a white handkerchief, furling his brow at his mirror image. Today’s proceedings had been intense. Having representatives all the way from Guantil-ya over in the Senate Halls was equally exiting and terrifying. This was indeed the time to make history… But giving up on the most extreme reaches of magic research? As a former educator at the Grand Academy, he could not in good conscience condone signing such a clause. And besides: If any of the Keepers went rogue against the forts of the Middle Lands, who would be able to stand in their way if there was no magic powerful enough to match theirs? Certainly the Null might be able to suppress the most dangerous uses of such magic, but what about the technocrats? Who could properly keep them in check but themselves? And how were he and his people going to trust that they would? It seemed to him as though something moved in the corner of the mirror reflection. Surprised, he jumped around. “Who’s there?!” “No one… perhaps…” came a disembodied voice. It was as if it seeped out of every shadow in the ostentatious room. Doing rather well for himself, lavish carpets and curtains laced the walls and floors, but as he had never married, he was quite alone in this large house, and all the textiles around him suddenly seemed to smother him. Why had he not made more light? “L-leave me be, whoever you are!” he yelped. “I am a senator of Fulgrath, don’t you know?! You cannot intrude into my place of living like that!” “Cadmir… I can intrude wherever I please. Your house, your closets, your office, why even your dreams. Me and mine have a message for you. Will you hear it, or must I torment you some more?” A sickening odor of rotting lilies washed through the room and Cadmir stumbled backwards, tripping over his chair. “No! Speak, for gears sake, what do you want?!” “The same thing everyone wants, Cadmir. Peace… Wouldn’t you like some peace too? Well, people listen to you, so you should choose your words carefully. You may think it is good and right to make magic bigger and more powerful, but look at you now… cowering…” Cadmir’s eyes darted around. Where, where, where was it? Who was in here and how?! “We’ll be listening, Cadmir… We’ll know everything you do… This treaty will happen, or you’ll get your own personal taste of… high tier magic…. Ha-ha-ha!” The oil lamps blew out like feeble candles, and it was dark and quiet in his room.
