Alantor is a warrior nation, fuelled by honour and a distinct code of chivalry to protect the innocent and uphold the law. Total faith in the monarchy to keep them safe is compounded by a devout faith in their deity Victirus, who many believe has blessed their king Ralor with eternal life.

Although the nation is strong and the people feel safe, two evils plague the nation. The first is a long time enemy which rose three thousand years ago, the lycanthropus of the under realm known as Urmona.

Another powerful enemy was once hero of Alantor, Salithria, corrupted by the void her demonic form a far cry from the human she once was. Her sister, Selena married Ralor as his first wife, and is the mother to his children, she has since passed, her death at the hands of her sister.

This construction is subsidised by the crown, although it is not uncommon for many of the highest ranking nobles to customise it with modifications. The Seneschal, as its name implies is a mostly defensive ship; it is designed to patrol the coastal waters of Alantor.

[ Approx: 50 ]

Ship Class:Alantorian Victory The Victory, is one of the most eponymous of Alantor warships. Designed to charge full tilt at the enemy lines and deliver the killing blow to left and to right of it. Its commanders despite what you might first imagine are not impetuous youngbloods seeking greater glory for themselves, but seasoned veterans, who realise that a fast attack is often the key to breaking an enemy?s spirit and forcing them from the field, and in the process saving your own subjects from certain destruction. The victory itself is a solid-looking ship with thick armour and two decks or ominous looking weaponry stowed beneath the decks.

[ Approx: 25 ]

Ship Class:Alantorian Drakeslayer The Drake-Salyer is sleeker than one would expect of most Alantor ships, designed to engage in aerial combat against foes such as drakes. Its ballista is forged in the city of Berkit and blessed by the priests of Victirus in that city. The final result is designed as a sleek vessel for a lord or other to take the fight to the enemies of Victirus and the Grand alliance.

[ Approx: 10 ]

Flagship:Kings Ark Heading many of the fleets of Alantor, is the King?s Ark. These ships are authorised for construction by King Ralor Masif himself. At first glance they are under-equipped compared to other ships of the same size, however, they hide a secret weapon; a cohort of Knights Templar

Alantir frees a host of captured Griffons, including the alpha male of the flock, who in return helped Alantir free the island.

Over the next two years the slave rebellion withered down the Zariger until only the Zar was left, the rebellion leader, Alantir strikes him down in single combat and proclaims the land free once more

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.
