|This started in the late 1980s as my reaction to all
those roleplaying campaigns set in a feudal/dark ages like world with a
polytheistic society exactly like the monotheistic feudal/dark ages
Europe and on a planet more or less like earth.
Fantasy doesn't have
to be like that.
So, I sat down and started working out my own world. It is not
based on Europe, but more on the world of classical Greece and Rome, but
with bits of medieval technology tossed in. It is a polytheistic
society built on the model of the religions in the classical world --
also a polytheistic society. And, it is NOT set on a planet
orbiting a star, etc. Instead it is set upon an island of reality
created by the Gods out of primal chaos. It is flat, and it does
have an edge.
The first thing I wrote was the basic creation mythology. And,
from that, a few related myths. And then, between roleplaying, and
after the campaign more or less folded, stories set in the world.
This is not a complete archive. Two major stories ("Kor's
Journey" and "Pricing Immortality" (aka The Adventures of Illisri) are
not here. The first one was an outline of an novel for which I got
the first 6 or so chapters done. I doubt I'll ever get the rest
done. The second is a novel, or even a pair of novels, that I am
going to finish and will try to be published. Hence I can't post
But everything else is!
