Alishar - The Celestial Plane

Alishar, known by most mortals as the Celestial Plane, is what many believe to be the home of the gods. In reality most deities occupy the Elemental Planes, while the celestial plane is home to the Celestials. Celestials were once mighty dragon spawn which roamed the Material Plane, their souls, full of positive energy, ascended to the upper plane when their mortal form died.

Celestials spent many millennia in paradise, they needed nothing, they wanted nothing. Each had free reign to shape their new world, and were content for an age. Free of their mortal form, they move around as formless beings of energy, much like The Entity

The omnipotent lifeform that stopped the Void consuming everything and inadvertantly created the planet within Terrainia

did before them, but with a tiny fraction of it's power.

That was until Abixlion tried to steal the power of Eternium; the Celestials became abruptly aware of their forbearers accension, and more importantly his intentions. Collectively realising the consequences of such combined power the Celestials decided to act, and together they fought off the ascending deity and halted his claim on the souls of Eternium.

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.
