Fantasy, Science Fantasy, and Science Fiction; Aqualon intersects all parts of this spectrum, presenting itself as a world both rich in magic and advanced technology, if you know where to look. But while the most powerful mages will boast of their might, the most advanced technocracies hide their superiority behind cautious isolation.

About Me


Hello there,
my name is Koray; welcome to my world!
Since I've been a little boy, I have been enthralled with the written word, working my way up the reading ladder from children's books to proper novels as quickly as I could, sinking my teeth into the many scifi and fantasy novels in my father's collection. Having to commute from our little village all the way to Frankfurt Airport where he used to work before moving to Belgium several years ago, he would use his time on the train to read the newest novel he had gotten his hands on, and while some of it would trickle down to me via recommendation, often I'd just stare at the wall of often beautifully covered books in his bookshelf and take my pick. I learned reading and writing before elementary school and started writing crude poetry at the age of 7, fascinated by the harmony that rhyme and meter could evoke in the medium of language.
