To the typical citizen of Terrainia; Ra isn't inhabited, its simply a domain of Talax, used for farming rare mushrooms, but what they don't know is that's it home to the last of the ancient mythical race of Dryads. Their leader was saved from destruction by Queen Karla Raeger and they formed a friendship that has lasted over a thousand years. The queen found them a new home in return for the protection of their mushrooms.

The only humans on the island are a handful of soldiers and workers that facilitate the shipping of the mushrooms back to Talax, they all reside at the tiny port settlement, on a piece of land that extends from the island to the southwest.

Leadership

Goverment: Theocracy

A form of government in which a god or deity is recognized as the state's supreme civil ruler. Since said god or deity is usually absent from decision making, a self-appointed or elected leader or leaders of the religion of said god or deity will rule instead through personal interpretation of the laws commanded by the god in that religion's written law.

Geography

Geography: 95% Forest
Landmarks: The Lighthouse of Volan

Built ten years before Volan Hoardrin sailed across the Talax Ocean, Volan knew his fleet would need guidance across such a treacherous span of water. He was well aware of the rumours about the island to the north and wanted to steer clear of it.

His solution was to build a beacon so high and so bright it would be seen from such a distance that it would guide his ships on both stages of the journey.

The lighthouse is now redundant due to the more advanced maps and shipping lanes, particularly the use of the water to the south of Ra, the lighthouse has fallen into disrepair, although on the darkest nights and foggy days sailors claim to have seen the lighthouse and used it to stay on course.


Location: Northern most point of Ra
Built (Alliance Year): Imperial year 1482 (Alliance year -25)
The Golden Tree

In the centre of the forests of Ra stands an impossible tree, golden in colour with three trunks twisting around each other until they become one. It?s this tree that changes the solid around its base and allows the rare Golden Mushroom to grow.

The mushroom has a golden colour but is otherwise edible, but it has a renown healing property, when used in the right way.

The tree is the last of the golden trees that used to grow throughout the area, they were being cut down by raiders until Karla Raeger blockaded the island and stopped their attacks, this not only saved the last golden tree but also the lord of the dryad people who had settled on the island some millennia before.

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.
