Worlds of Beru Draft

by admin published Jun 21, 2015 09:38 AM, last modified Jun 21, 2015 09:38 AM
This is the draft version. The more complete and updated version is found in the main site navigation. Here you will find useful information (not related to specific group adventures, for those adventure logs, see the Forum section of the site) about the Worlds of Beru setting to provide a high-level overview about this extremely flexible multiverse setting. This is an intentionally highly derivative setting, unashamedly directly borrowing from existing mythologies, legends, histories, literature, and many other sources.
Worlds of Beru Overview by admin — last modified Jun 21, 2015 09:41 AM
Here is an overview introduction to the home brew multiverse campaign by Hawke Robinson, "Worlds of Beru". This is an intentionally highly derivative setting, unashamedly directly borrowing from existing mythologies, legends, histories, literature, and many other sources.
King Arthur's Regnum Sapientium by admin — last modified Jun 21, 2015 09:41 AM
One area that I have used as a starting location, is a mythical Arthurian setting. This section provides a brief overview of this area. Note that it is intentionally NOT a copy of our modern version of the settings, rather it is a split of the multiverse that has many aspects that are comfortably familiar from the Arthurian legends, but have significant differences (for example the Elven empire is a close analog to the Roman empire in decline, but not by any means identical).
Elves of Beru by admin — last modified Jun 21, 2015 09:41 AM
This information applies mostly to the elves in the surrounding areas under Arthur's rule. The Characters may not have information about the elves in other lands (sea elf characters would be more "worldly" than most of the other races).
The Dragonspine Mountains by admin — last modified Jun 21, 2015 09:41 AM
The Dragonspine Mountains are immensely rugged sharp jagged peaks, with several active and semi-dormant volcanoes. Portions of these mountains were formed during the last great battle with the Drow that reshaped much of the local lands.
The Far North by admin — last modified Jun 21, 2015 09:41 AM
In the realms of the great ice kingdoms far to the north is the land the land of the Norse gods.
Other Places and People of Note by admin — last modified Jun 21, 2015 09:41 AM
This is a placeholder of many other places of note. I have far more details than posted here, they are meant as teasers for the players, your characters may have heard tidbits about each place, or maybe nothing more than a name, but this provides some hints as to what exists, which are meant to be discovered over time through adventure.
The Great Sundering Sea by admin — last modified Jun 21, 2015 09:41 AM
Perilous to leave site of the coasts, the great mists of the Sundering sea can cause many a captain to lose their way if they do not stick to the few known safe paths, otherwise they end up in waters and lands completely strange and may not be able to return the way they came....
Magic in Beru by admin — last modified Jun 21, 2015 09:41 AM
Magic is treated differently by different cultures, and in areas that are closer to other multiverses, how magic functions might even vary...
Dwarves by admin — last modified Jun 21, 2015 09:41 AM
Found in all lands to greater and lesser degrees, and in various forms, Dwarves are generally rugged wherever they may be, whether noble or shady.

Human Barbarians by admin — last modified Jun 21, 2015 09:40 AM
Most of the humans from the World of Beru are pretty much considered "barbarians". There are a few pockets of "civilized" humans here and there,but they are by far the minority.
The Great Glacier of the North by admin — last modified Jun 21, 2015 09:40 AM
The north of Beru seems to be experiencing an increasing ice age. This means the “Great Ice” glacier capping the north, is slowly growing farther south. This puts pressures on those living along the northern boundaries, whether they are humans, elves, dwarves, gnomes, druids, orcs, or giants, all species are impacted by this change.

The woods bordering the east side of the north road, east of the Druids, and South of the Woodelves, remains an uncontrolled wildland.
Draoi Geata - Druids' Gate by admin — last modified Jun 21, 2015 09:40 AM
Is actually two sets of walls and gates in parallel, mostly running east-west from the road, then later the western half veering north along the inside of the forest border, and the east side veering south in the Wild Woods.
