"There's a monster in every man, boy. Within me, there is a host, and one day, it'll be yours to command." Too often these days, Kenji's mind turns to the words of his accursed father. 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.
As the tendrils of a soul plague lay claim on Aqualon's oldest and most powerful magocracy, the Lord of Wind, Kenji Sokolow, is cast down from his high tower, pressed to rally whatever forces he can find. But first, he has to survive...

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?

Which Element is Your Soul Attuned to?

There are five elements tied to the Great Clockwork of Aqualon: Water, Fire, Lightning, Earth, and Wind. Each one of them is embodied by one powerful ur-soul that permeates the world and that people can connect to with their own souls to make elemental magic happen!   But if you were to perform magic, what kind would it be?   There are certain traits that are closely related to ones attunement and that can actually shift when one manages to change it; a difficult progress which usually involves many months of intense meditation.   To discover your most likely attunement, add up the elements from these questions:  

The Elements

Water Fire Lightning Earth Wind

Elements to Taste

Which of these kinds of foods do you like best?
Red Meat

Vistas of Power

Which of these places are places you'd love to explore?
A remote island with waterfalls and crystal clear waters.
An autumn forest.
Ancient ruins during a thunderstorm.
A mysterious canyon.
The tips of a windswept mountain range.
The empty streets of a city during a torrential rainfall.
The caldera of a dormant volcano.
The vast stretches of the Rusty Shore.
A fruitful orchard.
A vast, windswept plain.

Might and Moderation

How would you ideally wield the power of your element?
Seeking a greater understanding of the world around me.
Keeping it under control and projecting it inward.
Release it into the world to make it move forward!
Use it to reshape the world in my design.
To travel far and wide and see new things.

On the Spectrum

What is your favorite color or it's base hue?
Blue or white.
Red or yellow.
Purple or black.
Green or brown.
Any other or none at all.


Which of these gems or metals do you like best?

So, what is your attunement?

If you have collected three identical elements in the questions above, that is your attunement! The element will come very naturally to you, and you may exhibit elemental magic during your childhood. During childhood, when the imagination is the strongest, spontaneous magic can manifest itself in some.   If you collected only two identical elements, you have a good aptitude towards that element. You will still have to attune yourself through rigorous training, but will have it especially easy when attuning to this element.   If you have collected all five elements, your proclivity may go beyond elemental attunement, enabling you to perform unusual kinds of clockwork magic, maybe even nullmagic if you are properly trained or discover the art on your own.   If you have actually collected the same element five times, you may be powerful enough to become a Guardian or even be born as the Keeper of that element! Your chances of reattuning to a different element are slim though, even if you meditate intensely. Your soul is strongly tied to the ur-soul of this element.
