Katrinix

Katrinix Kat-rean-ix is a cruel and malevolent being, hatred born tens of thousands of years ago still burns within, every action she takes is a means to an end and that end is always borne from hatred of the metallic dragons. Her followers are granted terrible powers, for which they pay a huge price, unpayable by some so she consumes them for failure, spitting forth a Spidron, half spider half humanoid abominations. Once the most powerful chromatic deity; that title has since passed her by, but she still wields a tremendous power. When the other dragons signed 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.

she flew into a rage, declaring she would not be ruled by those she considered inferior.

Her first act of revenge was to use her divine power to whisk away a huge portion of Elfinihiar's elves and use her power to dominate their minds and remove all of what they were and replaced it with a thirst for power, and she has ever considered all the other elder dragons her enemies.

Deity Portrait

Katrinix Symbol:

Her self-stylised symbol contains reference to her domination of those that worship her, and to her blood price taken as payment for her blessing.
Coveted by clerics and sorcerers, feared by the others, all Nelvari know the symbol from an early age.

Orders of Katrinix

Order of the Hidden Veil The Inner Circle

Katrinix has followers across the globe, all manner of races and from all regions, although the Nelvari are the largest individual group that dedicate to her, they are just a fraction of the overall number. It's only the Nelvari that see her as her true self, other races see her as a powerful entity that offers any who worship a divine connection. One thing her followers have in common is their desire or requirement to be underground, large cities of Nelvari reside under each region of the world, and those followers that hide their allegiance within other settlements often use the underground areas for their activities.

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.
