Nazzikor

Nazzikor Nazz-e-kor is currently the most powerful chromatic deity, his power surpassed that of the others when he tapped into the energy of the dead. Nazzikor had created the first undead accidently when he drew on the negative energies of the world to bolster his own, the power he sought also absorbed into other creatures, partially reviving the dead and partially killing the living.

He is responsible for the creation of the original Avatars, in an act of collaboration not seen for thousands of years Nazzikor and his siblings tried to use these avatars to control the sentient life on the material plane, for more control means more power, although it was ultimately their own distrust that allowed the avatars to be thwarted.

The symbol had many forms but always stay true to the idea; death always wins.

Orders of Nazzikor

The Mortarion Guard The Death Seekers

Nazzikor followers fall into one of four distinct groups: First there are the those that seek power, they don't have a connection to the undead, but Nazzikor grants his power to any who will follow, they come from all races and can exist anywhere, these are often the most dangerous for they know not where the power comes from. Second are those that seek power and are knowingly following the reaper, they often use his negative power to raise the dead themselves, many from this faction seek to overthrow those in power and rule over others. Third are those that have become undead, wither through desire or misfortune, those powerful enough to retain their identity are often champions of Nazzikor, and go on to wreck terrible destruction in his name. Lastly there are the undead masses, living on pure instinct and need to feed, those killed by such creatures often join them, now imbued with their negative energy. They are mindless, but Nazzikor treasures them as his own.

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.
