The "Song of Time Project" is a series that revolve around characters from different countries who go through different experiences. The series usually consists of songs that have two versions: One version featuring Chinese human vocalists and the other featuring Chinese VOCALOIDs. However, there are instances where there is only a human version of the song. The human versions feature a variety of characters whot are voiced by various singers, while the VOCALOID versions use the same VOCALOID characters but with different clothes to tell them apart. It should be noted that while the human vocalists have assigned character roles, the VOCALOIDs do not and different VOCALOIDs can portray the same characters.
The series is based on an accompanying novel.
The God Most High was born in nothingness. When He woke up, the world was a desert. He shrouded the planet with divine power, blocking out the devastating cosmic rays. Then there was water, and then there were grass, insects, fish, beasts, and birds.
And then tens of thousands of years passed, with life evolving as expected. Until an accidental space-time crack, a violent energy invaded the entire planet. Divine power collided with this energy and fought each other. In the end, the God Most High suppressed this energy and sealed it in the deepest core of the planet. God fell into a deep sleep because of the great power consumption. When He woke up again, He found that there was a creature on the planet that was completely different from other kinds: mankind. It turned out that after the God Most High fell asleep, there was a trace of external energy that slowly expanded outward from the interior of the planet, eventually forming an energy crystal, "Seva" (瑟瓦), on the surface. A group of apes obtained Seva inadvertently. Under the influence of it, the population of apes had evolved rapidly, and finally became the intelligent creature "mankind" walking upright.
The God Most High tried to drive away this horrible energy again. But during His sleep, the entire planet has been assimilated by energy. If the energy were removed, the planet would collapse immediately. Thus, the God Most High reluctantly accepted the reality. He integrated divine power into the energy of centrosphere, and slowly directed the energy mix to the surface, forming Phantom Light Flowers (幻光花) and Shahua Gems (莎华宝石). Most of Phantom Light Flowers grow in the densely forested land in the east. When the flowers bloom, they will cause strong fluctuations in divine power. They are beautiful and elegant but transient. But Shahua Gems were only found in concomitants of various veins, and their energy was more peaceful and stable, but are buried underground and unknown. As lives promoted by the power of Shahua, human beings are naturally sensitive to the Phantom Light Flowers. And the first to get this power was a lucky slave: Saint Haran (圣者哈兰). He integrated all the Eastern tribes with absolute power and formed the first country: "Wong (楻)". He created a calendar and set this year as the first year. The era of magic opened.
Since then, human society entered a period of rapid development. People began to frantically collect all kinds of Phantom Light Shahuas (幻光莎华), and tried their best to get the power in it. After countless successful or failed experiments, three forms of power were eventually formed:
- Very few people could directly eat Phantom Light Shahuas, and by them, different divine power was generated. They are called: the chosen ones.
- Some people regarded Phantom Light Shahuas as a belief and as a totem. They worshiped them and carry them with them. During the long-term contact with Phantom Light Shahuas, their bodies also changed and gained part of divine power. They are called: fanatics.
- There are still some people who cannot get divine power directly. They took a different approach and mixed Phantom Light Shahuas with a variety of other substances and derived a variety of exotic effects. They are called: alchemists.
The chosen ones and the fanatics were very dissatisfied with the behavior of the alchemists who abuse Phantom Light Shahuas. So they gradually stopped offering Phantom Light Shahuas to the alchemists. After a plot to steal Phantom Light Shahuas was discovered, the chosen ones and the fanatics teamed up to expel the alchemists. They were forced to leave their homeland, wandering, and finally settled in the northern plateau and developed into a new kingdom: Agnesa (艾格尼萨).
In 1776 CE, the sage Watt finally broke through the shackles of energy and invented the magical engine. In the following decades, various types of magical machines came into being, and technology entered a period of the explosion.
In 1802 CE, the first magical airship was completed. Relying on the transportation power of the airship, the Aegnesians successfully crossed the boundless Western Death Desert and reached the new paradise: Fersares (弗尔萨瑞斯). As time went by, the Aegnesians gradually indulged and fell and degenerated in their pleasure. Instead of producing, they rely on the tribute from Fersares to maintain their luxurious lives. The Fersares were infuriated by the increasingly greedy material requirements of the Agnesians in the north.
In 2418 CE, a civil war broke out. The war lasted for nearly a hundred years. In the end, due to the lack of energy and materials, Agnesa had to recognize the independence of Fersares. They were forced to leave the Western continent and return to the increasingly cold and harsh north.
In 2567 CE, the catastrophe of the glaciers in the Far North engulfed nearly half of the Northern Continent. The Aegnesaws gathered all the alchemists and created five huge floating cities. The king of the north was hidden in the heavy snow, licking the wound and waiting for the opportunity.
The development of science and technology had also affected the ancient country of the East. The sophisticated mechanics from the north have sparked young people's fever of pursuit. Among them, the bottom-level people who are not favored by divine power accepted these new things most quickly. They were racing to buy books from the caravans in the north, and they are eager to learn the science of magic power. This phenomenon triggered the vigilance of the upper echelons of Wong. The lesson of former alchemists were still vivid, and the conservative Eastern powers did not like these diabolic tricks and wicked craft. The different ideas of conservatives and reformers had sparked long-term debates in the Eastern continent. This dispute continued until 2833 CE. The reformers' magical fleet found extensive archipelagos in the Southern sea. It is rich in natural resources and has a fascinating climate. This discovery elated the reformers. A large number of immigrants were sent to the South Islands, where they opened up barren hills and built towns and ports. In the end, most reformers chose to join the New World. They established their own country in the South Island: Tarpaz (塔帕兹).
In response to the growing energy crisis, the Western Fersares Academy of Sciences successfully developed a light energy conversion system, which could effectively convert solar energy into Shahua Energy Gems with large-area light energy mirrors. This technology was first applied to the Magical Puppet Factory (魔傀儡工厂), and a large number of low-energy, sustainable-operated mechanics were continuously produced and assembled, and they were incorporated into the various legions as a standing force. As a result, the contradictions between the conservatives and the radicals on how to use the puppet soldiers intensified, and the entire upper class in Western country broke up into two camps of Council of Elders (长老院) and Army Headquarter (军部).
In 3820 CE, Fersares Council of Elders ignored Army Headquarter's protests, formed a direct armed puppet corps, and brazenly started an undeclared war with Agnesa in the north. The puppet corps that required no sleep and logistics quickly broke through the desert outpost, and the north and the west launched a fierce offensive and defensive battle under Fort Arcadina (阿卡迪纳要塞). At first, the continuous offensive of the flooding machine soldiers caused great trouble to the northern defenders, but as time went by, the weak points of the low intelligence and slow response of the puppet soldiers became more and more apparent. After the powerful airship formation of Agnesa joined the battlefield, the tightly controlled airspace slowly pulled back the tilting war balance. This sudden war had been deadlocked for a while...
In 3828 CE, the sawing war between the western country of Fersares and the northern country of Agnesa, which lasted for more than eight years, ended in a dramatic way. The sudden explosion of the divine power of the impregnable Fort Arcadina shocked the world, and the space-time fissure left by the chaos of divine power evolved into a black forbidden area. Monsters from the alien land came to the mortal space through the cracks, causing disasters everywhere. In view of this, the military in the western country launched a call to the people, formed a mercenary union, and gathered people with lofty ideals to fight the fierce alien monsters. The rapid development of the union was so astounding that they soon established branch bases in the North and East countries. The warrior mania spread throughout the continent, and innumerable people responded. In this vigorous mercenary wave movement, the southern country had maintained a weird silence, but the fleets that traveled increasingly between the west and the south seemed to indicate the undercurrent flowing under the peace. The energy crisis was still going on, and the stalemate between the north and the west had not changed. Under the shadow rest a behemoth named War.
Time came to the end of the summer of 3836 CE, when a high school exchange student in the south country took a sailboat back to the capital of the country, his youthful eyes carrying a future with boundless hope. However, fate was slowly approaching him slowly and silently...
