The Mad Tree

He dwells in a tree of a house, or a house of a tree, however you choose to look at it.  In quiet. The years have been unkind to him and he is mad. His speech is constant, like an overflowing cup. But it does not matter, for he possesses the knowledge you need. ~ The World of Aihrde

From the Dark Water

They are found south of Gurthop Falls, where the two rivers converge. There the land is forever flooding and bogs become small ponds and ponds become lakes. There the beast dwells, for it finds comfort in the cool waters. ~ The World of Aihrde

The First Light

As he stood thus, with the Arc of Time flowing about him, the ground rumbled and exploded. In the great column of fire which rose above the land he saw the beauty of his creation. But the fire burned out and he was dismayed... The World of Aihrde

Safe Harbors

The moon reveals a tower. It lies beyond a gulch of twisted blackjack oaks and young pines, squatting on a heap of rock as if set there by happenstance. It is dark and hollow. What harbor it offers, if any, is yours to decide. ~ The World of Aihrde 

The Great Dwarven Kingdoms

Thousands of years ago, before the Winter Dark, before the Dwarf-Goblin Wars that decimated their numbers and ravaged their race, the dwarves were the dominant race upon the world of Aihrde. They built grand kingdoms, above and below ground alike, and had a vast seafaring empire.

Today, these great kingdoms lie in ruin, their halls dark and deserted, save for foul creatures of the depths that have invaded their once glorious chambers, great halls, and streets. In the depths of these ancient, abandoned ruins, it is whispered that great and vast treasures await. What glory and wealth might be found within these black chambers? Will you risk death--or worse--at the hands of the undead, goblins, and servants of Ornduhl, Unklar, and other black deities that infest these places to find such lost knowledge as the scrolls that chronicle the history of the world in those ancient days, or even better--the lost secrets of the Language of Creation itself?

These and many other epic adventures await in the World of Aihrde!

Dwarven Doors

In the snow-capped heights they built their holds. Clever people, they hid them in the mountain's rock. But magic leaves scars and blackens and it is said that their doors can be found where the rock is blackest. ~ The World of Aihrde

Of Stone Bridges & Mountains

They spanned the cliffs with bridges of stone, making their holds as one. There they remain, high in the mountains of the Lands of Ursal, forgotten remnants of an age of glory and wonder. ~ The World of Aihrde

Air so Still

Fresh-fallen snow swaddles the valley and hill where the castle stands. The stillness draws you into a momentary state of calm.

It does not last.

What comes behind you must be stopped with steel and sorcery, or at the very least, the valley and its Lord must be warned . . ..
