Welcome to Eirethune

Eirethune was a land created from the essence of the Gods. As divine forces fought for dominion over Eirethune, more gods exploded into being. First, as a land where they would live, and later as a plaything where they vied for control of its inhabitants. Now, after millennia of growing and evolving, the inhabitants of Eirethune are strong, perhaps strong enough now to challenge the will of the Gods.

Introduction and Background

The Eirethune Wiki provides information on the Heroic Fantasy world of Eirethune, a world created over many years for use in various D&D versions. Eirethune continued its development through both narrative and character-driven adventures to provide the observers and participants in the world with the ability to further envision and change the world itself.

This site contains information and narratives, not only about the history and contemporary situation of the inhabitants of Eirethune, but also provides opportunity for future expansion and alternative directions for the world as well.

Nations and Realms

The World of Eirethune

Eirethune

Eirethune has several nation states where characters can originate. There are a few introductory pages to give you a sense of what sort of people live in a nation, what their relationship is with other nations and with regions within the nation, as well as what languages they speak, what gods they generally worship, and what their regional attribute modifiers are. When a player can designate a background from a particular region that fits the sense of that region in some way, they can certainly use the regional attribute modifiers to augment their stats during character creation. The background may also offer additional skill proficiencies depending on what the background is.

The main nations in the current time are the following:

These nation pages have information summarizing the nation, as well as giving information for characters to have their origins and background stories present there. There are benefits associated with and possible inspirations available for a particular nation.

See additional data in the Nations of Eirethune section.

Deities of Eirethune

There is a creation story and history of the gods of Eirethune given in the pages for God-Time in the general history of Eirethune.

Typically in Eirethune, the people worship more than one god. Supplications to gods might be heard by gods, depending on how characters act when viewed by the god. Monks and Clerics perhaps worship fewer (1-2) gods, but if the background story for the cleric/monk is right, they can worship any number as they'd like.

For information about the individual deities, who they are and how they are worshipped, consult the Deities of Eirethune

Languages

Given the spread of peoples over the epochs, the peopDles of Eirethune have developed their own languages. They were nominally based off of the ancient languages of the two proto-races, but the language trees can be a source of understanding on how best communicate with the people of Eirethune.

In Eirethune, there is no single Common tongue, but there are languages which fulfil that need.

See more in the Languages of Eirethune.

Climate

The bulk of the populated area of Eirethune has a temperate climate, especially along the coasts and on the islands to the west.

There are 4 seasons in Eirethune, though they don't vary much between areas at different latitudes.

For the colder seasons, each area can experience snowfall precipitation at various levels of frequency and amount.

  • In the central latitudes,from southern Calandiren, Rhorden and Balmorien, as well as all of Angleside, Teldor, snow can occur in late fall, winter and early spring. Typical snowfalls in the hills and mountains at these areas could reach 1' or more per day during common snowfall. Along the coasts, snowfall typically is only 4-8" per day. The central latitudes have a chance of thawing during the winter at random intervals, allowing the snow accumulation to subside at times.
  • In the northern lattitudes, northern Calandiren, Rhorden and Balmorien as well as Vendratti and Frostmark, snow is fairly common from mid fall, winter and mid spring. Snow accumulation is similar (4-8" in low lands, 1'+ in higher elevations), but since the temperature is somewhat lower, the accumulated snow will remain through most of the year. The southern borders of the Lands of the Ur Lords will also experience similar weather conditions.
  • In the far northern lattitudes of Icereach and the tundra of the Lands of the Ur Lords, snow is common throughout the year. Blizzards are common in autumn and spring due to shifting winter patterns. There is some limited thawing in the summer, but there can be ice and snow found throughout the year. Winter is dark and cold, sometimes too cold for precipitation, but there is never a thaw.
  • The lands of the southern latitudes, Bavarin, Southland, Aden Shahn and Udbotsi, the weather is relatively warm year round. There is occasional snow in winter, but it generally melts after a few days as weather above freezing is common.

In the non-winter months, the world of Eirethune is quite pleasant. Even in the southern latitudes, the temperatures are never excessively hot. There is quite a bit of humidity in the coastal regions of the south, which can make things a bit unpleasant, but generally the weather is still quite good.

Crafting and Farming

Extraction

One fun mechanic that we like is the addition of Extraction. This offers players a bit more mechanics for developing items on their own, more than some of the suggested feat or table style mechanics.

There are also rules for other crafting methods, some of which rely on Extraction. They will allow characters to create their own magic items, though at a cost.

Potion Crafting

I've felt potion making could be extended to be more interesting - and also to use more abilities that are available in the campaign world

Fletching

Fletching is an extension of general crafting, but more complex; however, the benefits of pursuing fletching is quite strong

Scroll Making

Some relatively easy rules for making scrolls; there are prices and availability for buying spells; and importantly, there are rules for reading/using scrolls by any class

Tap Items

These are rules for enchanting items and objects with permanent abilities. Each crafting attempt has quite a bit of material costs.

Class Modifications

Druids

Here are a few different druid circles for Eirethune

Rangers

  • Focused Hunter - a sub-class that's part Hunter and part Monster Slayer

Paladins

Rogues

House Rules

Couple other Rules Thoughts

  • Temporary Hit Points: If a person is unconscious (let's say -3) and they receive 10 temporary hit points, it should be able to bring the person consciousness (i.e.; to ONE hp) if they are able to overcome the deficit. Any additional temporary hit points given over the 1, are lost.

Magic Clarifications

  • Spell casting slot usage: you can always use a higher slot or same level slot to throw a spell. Cleric family or Wizard family of spellcasters both. 5th level dude who has Magic Missile memorized (4-3-2), he can throw Magic Missile 9 times if he wants. 4th level cleric (4-3) who has Inflict Wounds memorized, can cast it 7 times if they want.
  • Spells per Round: You can only cast 1 NON-CANTRIP spell per round, either in bonus action or normal action. You can throw a normal spell and a cantrip in a single round if one of them applies in reaction or bonus.

Very Optional Rules

  • Emergency Spellcasting - attempting to cast spells when you have no spells left. This will not be used by NPCs unless PCs use it first.
