Welcome to the Continent of Pherae!
Pherae is the overall setting for our campaign. The government is ,colllectively, referred to as the Organized Provinces of Pherae or the OPP. It consist of 5 States, and a 6th, unsettled area.
The states split into two when the industrialized nation of Crimea broke off with the agrarian state of Laus and decided to form their own independent state. The break was primarily brought on by disagreements over how the other states were using resources produced by Crimea and Laus, who were to unite to form the Greater Crimean Empire.
The 5 nations, briefly,
Ostia- The Capital of the OPP. Known for its political clout and its adherence to tradition. Ruled over by Lord Hector Ostia( LN). Known for its efficient bureaucracy and home to the great universities of the OPP, excluding the military colleges.
Zeltennia- Known most for its Magic City of Gariland, this nation is responsible for the magical developments of the nation. Also, the location of the main settlements of the gnomes with the OPP. Very secretive, almost wasnt involved in the war, with the exception of its war magic college. Aside from Gariland, it is the 2nd most religious province and is primarily rural and agrarian.
Karsh- Known for its military Colleges, ruthless tactics, and , due to the war, its new and improved more efficient industry center. Very spartan in nature.
Laus: Religious and Agrarian capital of the OPP. It is home to the center of Worship to The Sun King. Led by His Holiness Reginald R. Paul. Torched by scorched Earth warfareduring the rebellion, many of its citizens are leaving for the East.
East: Wild, unsettled, inhabited by natives. The settlements that are out here from the West are primarily settled by former Crimeans and Lausite yeoman farmers just attempting to eek out a living. A low Priority on Ostia’s law enforcement, still attempting to rebuild the devastated Laus and Crimean territories. More information on the war will be found here,eventually.
Our heroes have all arrived at the major trading hub of the East, Winchester, where rule of law is non-existent, simple farmers and ranchers live in fear of their fellow settler, in addition to the sometimes hostile natives. And our heroes, if you can call them that, have to decide what their role will be.
Can they bring peace to the East? Can they survive? Will they become kings of the East, or simple footnotes on history, dust on the lens of something much greater. Are they the heroes of the stories, or villains?
Welcome to your wiki!
This is your wiki Main Page. It serves as a starting point for your wiki. From here you can begin organizing your campaign!
To get you started, here are some examples of what you can do with the wiki. To see how these work, edit this page and take a look.
Creating a new page
To create a new page, just make a name and surround it with double square brackets like so: A New Page. When you save the page, the link will show up and you can click on it to create the new page.
Linking to existing pages
To link to existing pages, use the same double square brackets. For example, here’s a link to the this page: Main Page
Linking to a page with different text
If you don’t want to use the page’s name as the link text, you can specify your own text by placing a vertical bar | and the link text in the link like so: The Text To Display
Linking to characters and items
To link to a character or item, use the same double square brackets, but also use a colon. The text to put in the brackets is the slug for the character. Here is an example: Retread
If your character has no slug, you can use the ID number, like so: Retread.
For PCs and NPCs in your campaign, you can just use the PC/NPC Link Lookup in the sidebar to the right. It’s quite handy!
Linking to characters and items with different text
Just like wiki links, it’s possible to link to a character or item using alternate text. Here’s an example: James Rhodes
HTML and Textile
To style things how you want, you can use either HTML (with some restrictions) or a simple formatting language called Textile. It’s up to you, but Textile is pretty easy, while simultaneously allowing for lots of customization.
