The infamous Dead Hold is home to the even more infamous Arkarzan the entire island is one gigantic fortress, edged by a fifty foot wall topped with huge warmachines, with no land gate in the outer wall a huge stone floodgate over a canal prevents access to the fortress's port, which in turn is the only way on or off the island.

The internal space is mostly open, the ruins of an ancient city barley visible, no living accommodation for Arkarzan's standing army is needed as they are not living and literally stand waiting.

The only standing structures are a ring of impossibly tall towers, with a central dome which serves as an entrance to the underground catacombs each tower is topped with a conical roof hiding their true purpose and is home to one of Arkarzan's Mortarion guard, each Mortarion is reasonable for sowing seeds of destruction in a different part of the world, and each tower houses both their plans, and a means to travel quickly to their area.

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.
