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?

Timber is an island of the Spark Isles by the Anvil Islands. It is rarely visited by people not part of the Anvil Island Black Market or the various crime syndicates it deals with, as it is a wretched hive of lawless arms dealers and wanted criminals.   The forest here is thick and lush with lavender moonvine and laden trees, trying to choke each other out of the scarce sunlit spots in the dense canopy. At night, no sunlight passes through the large leaves, and even the bright moon- and starlight above the Anvil Islands is occluded almost entirely.   The nations of Adamantaya and Tai'incus of the Anvil Islands are famous for their superior gunsmiths, and they supply much of the Ocean Belt with their powerful firearms. Besides the more honorable customers they have established, there is a rather powerful underground lobby, supplying the great pirate houses of the Ocean Belt and the Black Market of Yamato.   These illegal supply and trading operations take place on so-called shell-islands such as Timber, where ruthless arms-dealers have dug into the depths of thick forests like hermit crabs into a shell.  

The Gulch

Here, at the heart of Timber, one can find a steep decline, leading to a plain housing and what looks like a small village. Torches on bamboo sticks light up the cleared forest floor at night, though all around, the trees stand thick and menacing.   All day and night, muscular men can be seen hauling crates filled with metal weapons and implements, rolling cannon barrels, carrying ominous casks.   This is the heart of Timber's arms dealing black market, tied into several large harbors on the Anvil Islands.
