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 Giant's Meal of Ravensburg


Boil the quail eggs until hard. Mix the yogurt with minced garlic and one to two diced cucumber as well as some olive oil, salt, and honey, and stir diligently. Then, cut all but one tomato into slices or quarters and slice the remaining cucumbers.   Heat up olive oil in a pan. As it does, place some dill into the oil after cutting off the stems, making a bed for the herring to fry on. Once the pan is hot, place the herring and fry it. This should not take long, since it is a small fish, you'll see when it is ready. As you turn it (twice), smother it in some lemon juice and sprinkle salt, pepper, and spice mix onto it.   Place the herring on the plate and halve most of the eggs, arranging them to one side of the fish. Place mushrooms, tomato and cucumber slices, a corner of honey comb, and the tiny carrots on the plate and decorate with the whole quail eggs and the remaining uncut tomato.   Serve with the yogurt sauce and some milk.   Enjoy.

A closer Look

The Song of Jörgensmahl

This song tells of the tradition of the giant's meal, which honors the first High King of the Fiefdoms of Ravensburg, Jörg the Greater, who was thought of as a giant for his enormous stature. The High King is elected by the jarls that rule the different Fiefdoms, and Jörg was so beloved that new High Kings are judged by his standard and fed this meal of tiny things to make them feel the weight of responsibility that rested on the giant's shoulders.
Guitar Chords and Lyrics
The first great king of Ravensburg
was chosen by the jarls
And Jörg the Greater was his name,
as tall was he as all his fame

A giant king who led us well
for he was wise and strong
And so we ever honor him
By passing on this song.

When a new king takes the throne
we serve to him the giant's meal,
so he may rule as well as Jörg,
and know the rulers weight.

The golden honey of the land;
put little greens into the pail
and of the forest tiny 'shrooms
together with the eggs of quail

When a new king takes the throne
we serve to him the giant's meal,
so he may rule as well as Jörg,
and know the rulers weight.

From homeward lands within the lake
bring haring fish and dill so fresh
From lands of Druith the golden fruit
From far away bring spices good

Lay all of these onto his plate
that's half the size like fork and knife
pour milk into a tiny glass
and bring it to the king

When a new king takes the throne
we serve to him the giant's meal,
so he may rule as well as Jörg,
and know the rulers weight.

On some of the Ingredients and their Origin

Herring of Loch Môrdryn
The Kaltani Fiefdoms of Ravensburg are located largely around Loch Môrdryn, which is frozen over for more than 200 days of the year. The Ravensburg Kaltani trade large quantities of silverback trout to the Glade of Druith each year in exchange for the magically enhanced fruit picked in the Druith orchards all over the year. Herring, frozen in the ice, is also cut out in blocks and served year round.
Altonar Spice
Altonar, the City at the Water Vent, is the central power of the Axis of Steel (both politically and geographically). Their allies, Svalbrynd to the South, and the Fiefdoms of Ravensburg to the North, have profited greatly from their technological advantage, however, cooling elements and transportation aren't the only thing, Altonar brings other things to the table. For one there is also its famous Altonar Spice: A mixture of Svalbrynd sea salt, black pepper of Nyingma, red chilly peppers of the Yellow Sands, and locally grown cumin. A fiery mix, which is well liked far and wide.
Fruits of the Glade
North of the Brammenwoods lies the Glade of Druith, just past the great Lake of Glazglubin. Home to the nomadic, spiritualist people of Druith. By the power of their schamani animancy, their lush trees are laden with juicy fruit most times of the year, and they have taken to trading that fruit with neighboring powers, such as the Fiefdoms of Ravensburg.
