The general properties of the Plane of Dreams were already covered in a previous post, but there’s a lot more to this unusual plane than mentioned there.

Magic and the supernatural in Tarosir

No Comments
As a d20-based setting, Tarosir has many different types of supernatural forces. The four broad categories of supernatural power are magic, ki, psionics, and mythic power. Magic is further subdivided into several subcategories. Mechanically, this post also gives an idea of what player classes exist in the world, though it’s not completely comprehensive - classes with …

The Tarosir Main Pantheon

No Comments
The pantheon of Tarosir can be divided into three main parts: the primordial pantheon, some of whom are now deceased; the main pantheon, worshipped by most humanoids and even quite a few non-humanoids; and a collection of minor deities. This post only covers the main gods. The appearances described here are those normally used when appearing …

Annûtawar (sometimes called the West Country) is almost entirely forested; the boundaries of the country correspond to the boundaries of the forest, though there are one or two large open areas to be found, and some stretches of the coast also have few trees. The forest stretches from the Dragon’s Teeth in the north, right down …

The World Snake - a Tarosir Creation Myth

No Comments
There are multiple creation myths in the world of Tarosir, but one of them has the distinction of being based in fact. It also has the distinction of being mostly forgotten. This is something of a work in progress, and I may edit the post periodically with revisions. On the other hand, I might make a …

As a note, any magic traits also apply to psionics unless specifically noted. This applies to the traits in the previous post as well. Inner Planes The Inner Planes …

This post will summarize the planes; later posts will go into greater detail on specific planes. Outline of Cosmology The setup is quite a bit simpler than the Great Wheel of the standard …

Narathion

No Comments
Narathion is a monarchy nestled primarily along the river Narith, between Annûtawar and the Backbone. It does spread out a fair way from the river, though, and there are some settlements near the border of Annûtawar and even a few in the foothills of the Backbone that count themselves as part of Narathion. The capital city …
