Thaiek Thai-ek views the world differently from his siblings, he firmly believed their sentient lifeforms should be taught directly by their creators, instead of being allowed to gradually realise their potential. It\'s this view that made him instil an innate knowledge of the world into his dwarves, like the depth of rock and how different metals interact with each other and the other elements.

When Abixlion corrupted Thaiek's dwarves Thaiek retreated into himself, the slow loss of power while his dwarves were taken to the edge of extinction further compounded his isolation. It took monumental effort for him to regain a divine connection with the material plane once more.

Deity Portrait

Thaiek Symbol:

The original symbol of Thaiek was a beacon of hope for the few remaining dwarves.
Its crossed hammers represent the two hammers first created by the diety, gifted to the dwarver race to forge tools.


Servants of the Lost King
Keepers of the Hammer

Thaiek's followers are exclusively dwarves, this is a side effect of the deity losing a world influence, only after he regained a connection was he able to channel his power to his followers, and those are few and far between. Only a handful of dwarves exist beyond their mountainous homeland, these few only have a remnant of information regarding Thaiek. Those in the homeland are fighting a war they lost long ago, Thaiek works hard to keep them from passing into myth.

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 nineteen 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.
