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 Travel Gates of Fulgrath

Before the so-called Declaration of Existential Independence of 22 GE can be enacted, the old jump drive contained within the core of Borealis is fired up unexpectedly: A group of radical technocrats steal the heart of the city to construct with it their own technocratic city called “Miyako Fluxum”, which will later often be referred to as “the Moving City”. They disagreed with the decision to ban the faculty of technamagix, saying that all knowledge is good knowledge, and now their new city jumps from place to place within the Great Land, more openly trading with the Middle Lands, the Yamato Kingdom, and the westernmost city called Altonar, a less developed technocracy. The isolationist Borealis, on the other hand, still hoards much of its advanced technology and only conducts trade by proxy through its way-point outpost Rimcity on Guantil-ya.
— From the Green Book, by Sagamund Greenhorn
  While being the first technology that utilized spacial bending with an emphasis on advanced gyrometrics rather than raw clockwork magic (though still using magic to bypass certain natural laws), the jump drive made its way into the most advanced magocratic city of Aqualon, Fulgrath, in time.
  The great city of Fulgrath has a large district called "the Forge", which is where most of the magic engineers, smiths, and engineers are located. Amazing new machines are invented and realized here every day, though most of the truly monumental research is done in the Grand Academy of Fulgrath in the north of the city.
  Though electric carriages had their brief dawn in Fulgrath, the need for a proper mass-transit system to connect the large areas of the city to each other was quickly realized. Scholars of the Grand Academy of Fulgrath and magic engineers from the Forge worked together for months until they received unexpected but welcome help from Miyako Fluxum, the moving technocrat city, which had already become an important trading partner for Fulgrath at the time. Together they created the transit towers, which harness soul energy and spatial distortion based on high-speed soul computation to warp so-called 'travel gates' together and allow people to move from tower to tower in seconds, regardless of distance.

Miyako Fluxum

Miyako Fluxum is one of the two High Technocrat cities, the other being Borealis at the South Pole. It is the seat of technamagix. The city is underground and changes location regularly using jump drive technology, which is why they are often called "The Moving City". This jump drive, technamagic in design, was originally the heart of Borealis, until the Declaration of Existential Independence1
On this historic day, the Council of Faculties of Borealis, decided to use the newly available DVF Suppression technology to permanently turn the city into a clockwork exclusion zone.

This was done for two reasons:
Firstly as an ultimate deterrent to secret technamagix research within the city proper.

Secondly, autonomy from the direct influence of the Great Clockwork, which was by then believed to subtly influence mankind using its massive Base DVF.

The generators were constructed, installed, and activated over the course of 3 years, after which the technocrats of the south had freed themselves from destiny with nothing but their own ingenuity. Whether for good or bad remained to be seen.
