Welcome to Eirethune

Eirethune was a land created at the whim of the Gods. First, as a land where they would live, and later as a plaything where they created different species to compete. 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 the past several decades for use in various RPG systems.

Created in the late 1970s, Eirethune developed over the past several decades in both narrative and empirical content to provide the observers and participants in the world with the ability to further envision and develop 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.

History

Languages

Given the spread of peoples over the epochs, the peoples 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.

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.
