Elfinihiar

Elfinihiar Elfin-ih-ar was the first to create a sentient race, and as such was the first to discover the power to be gained from channelling the worship of those dedicated to her, it was this power that allowed her to still communicate with the most devoted after her ascension. At first she didn't agree with the Intervention Laws

The Intervention Laws are a set of rules laid down by the elder dragons upon the realsation they could effect the course of the world even after ascension.

as they would limit the power she had on the material plane.

With some serious convincing from Rayis she eventually joined the others. Its these laws that made Elfinihiar create the relic beneath Dasima and bind her people to it, for reasons known only to her.

Orders of Elfinihiar

The Sentinels The Bowreapers

Almost all followers of Elfinihiar are elves, even outside of Dasima only a tiny fraction are non-elves, but there are thousands of temples across the grand alliance territories due to the number of elves seeking out life beyond their homeland and the offspring scattered about. Elfinihiar keeps an ever watchful gaze over her people, especially those that have left the safety of Dasima, she often finds a hero amongst the masses and instructs them to set up or join an order, these orders usually have a single motive or goal.

ABOUT US

THE CONCEPTION

Terrainia started off in 2004 as a single island for a role-playing game (using a well-known and popular third edition rule set). This island became wonderfully detailed, players would recognise who they were dealing with when suitable miniatures (made by another well-known table-top games company) were placed on the table. But eventually the players finished the campaign, and managed to slay the dragon, or so they thought.

So with the campaign over, but the desire to continue burning ever bright, further areas were designed and planned, and over the course of five long but enjoyable years the world grew exponentially. At its peak of these five years there were six regular groups, around forty players, two dungeon masters, and a world as large as Earth drawn up and with huge levels of detail.

THE EVOLUTION

While that is where Terrainia was born, now twenty years on and the development hasn’t stopped, we began to construct this website in 2010 as a resource for our players to use, then in 2020 (during the world wide pandemic) our founder took the opportunity to flesh out the world even more and add this to the website during which thoughts turned to sharing Terrainia with the rest of the world.

It was at this time that the founder began to commission artists, budgets were low, it took time to find the right artists with the right style, but over the next few years the main cast got made, the deities, the primary heroes and villains, then monsters. it was important for the founder that all artwork was theirs, monster design was theirs, and in turn game systems were theirs, we did not want to copy or reproduce existing systems

Along with the game world, contributors are writing novels and designing games, all set within Terrainia, at the time this page was last updated there is no less than seven different games/books in production, and soon will have link to these games/books for you to immerse yourselves within.

So that’s us, we hope you enjoy the site, if you want to give us some feedback why not .

THE FUTURE

After this first wave of games and books who knows? but one thing for sure is there is plenty of material and our aim will be to share this world with as many fantasy fans as possible.
