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 Rahn Cottage

This cozy little cottage is built in the foothills of Mt. Tokerei at the beautiful Rahnbach river, one of the most pristine locations around the great city of Aquaris. It has a sort-of water gate with a little dock inside, where a boat can be kept as well as a gorgeous upper level with a wide living room and balcony.


The water gate and dock in the bottom floor used to be a hall designated for practicing water magic, but Jochen Ballini converted it into a sort of holding area for a small boat he had purchased, and it has been like this since then, undergoing a number of renovations, though the sturdy construction of the cottage has kept it in solid shape for a long time.   After the poet Andrew received ownership of the cottage, he painted the old magic engine tugboat Ballini had reclaimed as a river boat green, renaming it "The Esmeralda", a name that references the color of the boat and the name of the vaguely-romantically-involved shipbuilder who originally constructed it.


Built from locally sourced timber using squeezing, a process that involves water magic and an alchemic primer to make the wood extremely durable against weather, water, and old age, the cottage has stood at the side of the Rahnbach river for over twelve hundred years. Alchemic primer has to re-applied to the walls every three hundred-ish years to prevent degradation, though owners usually do one per generation to be on the safe side.


This historic cottage was built in 420GE by the water magus Juliano Krupp, who had studied at the Spire of Rahn, working as an educator there for a large portion of his life. In his later years, he, his wife Hildegard, and their son Jochen Ballini started work on the Rahn Cottage.   The cottage passed down to Jochen Ballini's family with the death of Hildegard Krupp in 505 GE and went further down the family line over the centuries. It is now standing empty, owned by the city of Aquaris and is up for sale, though few people are aware of this.   Put up for sale with all contents as is, this cottage actually contains some very valuable, dusty manuscripts from professor Krupp on water magic and other academic subjects. It was bought as such by a wealthy philanthropist named Uwe Gartenwachtel and given to the famous poet Andrew for his participation in a private poetry challenge Gartenwachtel organized.
