Eternium - An Afterlife Plane

Eternium is the most widely known resting place for those who pass from the material plane, this is in part because the vast majority of sentient life on the material plane is inherently good, and their faith, however minor, is encouraged by the priests or clerics of the various churches of the civilised world.

This faith and education not only promotes the truth to their worshipers but it in turn feeds the pantheon with the energy of prayer they need. Due to the faith that these mortals hold; when they reach the end of their lives and pass on to Etherium, the ethereal plane, their lives are judged by the Universe. If they were good of nature and no evil taints then their soul transcends from the Ethereal plane and on to Eternium. But, if they are judged to be evil, then a whole different fate awaits their soul in Infernis.

Paragons were once mortals. Upon death, when judged by the Archons of Etherium, those of the purist of soul are elevated into Paragons. These elevated souls still experience the harmony and peace of the realm while ensuring others also get to.

Subtype (Name):

Archetype:

Malignitas

Voidshard

Voidspawn

Eternium

Malignitas are full of spite, they exist in the space between the pockets that contain the resting souls. In this space they are insignificant, but they will try to breach the minor barriers to get inside.

Should they do so then the souls within are in great danger of being destroyed by the Malignitas, for not purpose other than it's own revel.

Appearance:

Black crow like creature, although it's wings are more like shadow.

, Contemptor

Subtype (Name):

Archetype:

Class:

Native Plane:

Contemptor

Voidshard

Voidspawn

Eternium

Contemptors hate being stuck in the space between the pockets of peace occupied by the resting souls, so they seek to break the pocket itself.

A Contemptor is massive, it's jaws can open wide enough to bite into the pockets. It then violently shakes and thrashes, eventually it will shatter the pocket and the souls within will be destroyed.

Appearance:

Black oily shark, formed of shadow but with clear inner form.

, Misiconda

Archetype:

Class:

Native Plane:

Misiconda

Voidshard

Voidspawn

Eternium

Misiconda are dormant Voidshards, they exist in the space between the pockets of peace where the mortal souls rest for eternity. Nothing seams to wake them except the breaking of a pocket.

When one is torn open the Misiconda seek out the souls that are adrift in the ether, consuming them as they pass through their gullet.

Appearance:

Black worm like creature, barbed along the body with circular rows of teeth.

Inhabitants Role: Voidshards serve no purpose
Planar Influance: None

Voidshards are nasty little creatures, spawned from the shards of Saiyiden upon her death, these hateful creatures are practically impossible to catch, let alone destroy.

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.
