Nephodacha Neph-o-dach-a was just a egg during the great war, stolen from Mathandria during an encounter and cast into the forest of what is now known as Talax, the impact caused an early birth and the young hatchling found herself alone. Hidden from the skies above she was forced to learned quickly and make a home for herself, her wings did mature like the others and so she was forced to live on the ground. Her forbearer Mathandria pined for her lost child but was unable to make contact with her. Nephodacha spent the first two hundred and fifty years trapped within the forest, but in that time her power awakened, a connection with the forest at its core, she helped it grow repair damage done by the war above, nurturing the forest animals, protecting them from being caught in the crossfire.

Eventually her power became strong enough for Mathandria to find her, but it was late on in the war, the dragon population was devastated, Mathandria was overjoyed to have a young dragon by her side once more, but Nephodacha longed for the forest home, so still spent many a day beneath its cover. When the war was over and the elves began to populate the surface some found their way to Nephodacha. She welcomed them in and taught them the way of the forest, although at this point they were still elves, just attuned the forest. After a few millennia Nephodacha grew tired and passed form the mortal realm, her people honoured her memory with a great party that lasted days and each anniversary would hold the same party and she was not forgotten. Once her ascended form awakened her connection was immediate, her people looked to her for guidance once more, and the diety of the forest was born. Nephodacha drives her followers to rid the world of the undead and their blight upon Terrainia wh

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.


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 .


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.
