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?

The Lands of Inferno

Between the Walls of Weltenend lie the Lands of Inferno, a pressure cooker of volcanic and tectonic activity, filled with searing heat, lava streams, noxious gases, and smoke. With almost all of Aqualon's northern hemisphere being extraordinarily tectonically stable, the pressure below the planet's crust has to vent somewhere; This is that place. Very few people have ever tried to venture here, and pretty much none of them ever made it back. The entire region is considered uninhabitable.
— From the Aqualon Grand World Atlas, 2nd Edition


The Lands of Inferno are separated from the rest of Aqualon by the Walls of Weltenend, enormous mountain ranges, to the east and west, by the Iron Belt to the south, and the Snowzone to the north.   From east to west, they are comprised of a rocky wasteland filled with uncountable volcanoes, rivers of soot and lava, and large gorges and crevasses formed by severe tectonic activity.   While the planet's northern hemisphere is remarkably tectonically stable across all of what is known as "the Great Land", all instability that builds up from convection streams below its crust are shunted towards and vented at the Lands of Infrerno. This turns it into an incredibly hot region, dense with noxious gasses, smoke, ash, and soot, utterly uninhabitable, and nearly unsurvivable by all but the most technologically or magically advanced; and even then usually only for limited periods of time.   Towards the southern edges of the region, however, dense, churning glaciers rise above the metal surface of the Iron Belt, stretching out into the southern Transglaciatic Sea, blocking entry from both the Corsic Ocean and the Iron Belt itself. In the high north, the Snowzone is pushed back slightly by the intense heat, but ultimately settles down into a sooty, slushy rim that turns whiter and whiter the farther up north one goes.

Natural Resources

While the intense volcanic activity likely creates and/or unearths many rare minerals and crystals that might be of interest to some, the cost of actually mining them would be so exorbitant that any value gained would be expended a hundred-fold or more.
