The Known Lands
Welcome to the Known Lands!
The known lands is a Dungeons and Dragons campaign that uses the 3.5 version of the D&D Rules/SRD. It’s what you would term mid-fantasy. Instead of going all High Fantasy where you fight to save the world or die trying, this is middle fantasy.
- Macro-ly The Known Lands are set on three Continents about the size of Europe, Africa, and Asia.
- Most Campaigns are set on the Isles of Caithness.
- The Isles of Caithness are about the same size (and same latitude) as the British Isles.
- The campaign is designed for both Rolemaster and Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 Editon (d20 System).
The Known Lands were once ruled by the First Ones or the Founders in the unknowable, mythic past. Three races descend from the First Ones: they are the Humans, the Eladrin, and the Orcs. Sometime during the Mythic Past, the First Ones were involved in an Interstellar War with one of the Illithid Empires.
The First Ones (or the Founders) defeated the Illithids, but the Eladrin and the Orcs were forced to relocate from the worlds of Arborea, Outland, and Archaeron back to the world of the Known Lands during the war.
The rest is ancient history.
