Rodinia is a small fantasy RPG campaign setting. Covering the World of Rodinia, the known reaches of which only equate to about one and a half times the size of modern Europe, this gazetteer aids the curious explorer of Rodinia in getting to know the world and its inhabitants.
The known World of Rodinia is split into three main continents: Khemit in the west, Rodinia in the centre and Lucarcia in the east. Rodinia is the largest and holds the most significant civilization known on the planet, that of the Empire of Rodinia which ultimately gives the world its name.
As a place to adventure, Rodinia is rich and varied with many different cultures to savour, myriad ruins to explore and countless dangerous creatures to face and overcome.
Rodinia is a humanocentric world with the majority of settled and civilized lands being controlled by humans. There are nations of other races, notably elven kingdoms hidden in the large forests which swath the landscape and dwarven strongholds dug deep and secure underground, but the large majority are human lands.
Outside the civilized lands, in the heights of the mountains or the depths of dark forboding marshes lay the lairs of many a foul creature. Dragons roost in extinct volcanoes, orc chieftans control areas outside the patrols of king or emperor and undead lords claim dominion over lands no human would care to settle.
Magic is a force to be reckoned with in Rodinia, with arcane sorcerers and holy priests wielding great power and able to make the fantastical and unnatural happen at their whim. The common man fears and respects these great magic users and is all too aware that such people have control over things which are best not dwelled upon by mortals.
This web page serves as a gazetteer for the world, allowing the interested visitor the chance to stroll easily along the busy streets of a hot, dusty Khemit bazaar, to drift through the lazy and peaceful countryside of Albion's feudal kingdom. The powerful and civilized empire of Rodinia can be explored, following the legions across their conquered lands, or the exotic lands of Honshu can be seen through the eyes of a devoted samurai warrior.
