The World of Gaile is a Campaign Setting for Dungeons and Dragons that I have worked on for several years. This current incarnation is adapted for use with the Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 rules and incorporates supplementary materials I find suited to this setting. In developing this world, I borrowed heavily from the myths and legends of Europe, and from the rich fantasy worlds created by authors such as J.R.R. Tolkien and Fritz Leiber, in order to create a setting that would be familiar, yet intriguing, to my players. Most of the cultures in this world, particularly on the continent of Estegalle, are based upon European, Slavic and nomadic Asian cultures. The technology level of this campaign ranges th th from that of late 11 century among the Tribes of Vors through that of late 15 century Europe in the lands of Caerleon, Kashgar and Mauridia. Reading the descriptions of the Lands of Estegalle, you will notice that humans are the dominant race of Gaile; that their struggles and triumphs now resound th throughout the Lands of Estegalle. At this time, the 575 year of the Gaile Common Year, humans have driven their non-human neighbors into seclusion, to those lands that no man finds hospitable, or into lands shrouded from their eyes.

In the days following Gaile’s crafting of the world, the children of Jenia and Aluin were overwhelmed with its stark beauty. The great sphere of rock, named after the first daughter of Jenia and Aluin, was fashioned by the Ardillon according to their desires; just as their sires had fashioned the gods’ celestial dwelling in the days before they were thought into being. This making of the world has not been completed; for its ending will come with the end of all things. The gods’ shaping of things in time and the passing of events, both glorious and fell, are the stuff of history. Here are some events that make up the known history of Gaile and their estimated dates (Pre-Common Year):

First Historical Period: The Days of First Awakenings (Pre-Common Year)
30,000 PCY: The gods fashion the elder fey, such as treants, dryads, nymphs and fossergrim, and giants from the fabric of the world to serve as its stewards. Aluin breathes life into these beings and Gaile helps to nourish them under the guidance of Jenia. Tension crops up almost immediately between the immortal fey and the mortal, tempestuous races of giantkind. Conflicts over territorial control lead to bloodshed that, in turn, feeds the growing animosity between the gods of the fey (Faendre, Gerian and Naeril) and the patrons of giantkind (Moloth and Theros). Over time the majority of giants come to worship Moloth and the lesser god Baloth, who they revere as lords of battle. Only good and neutral-aligned giants hold to the worship of Theros, the Stormlord, and of Gaile. From the union of elder fey and godlings known as Silathae, or servitors, the mortal elven race is born. The first lines of elves awaken beneath the stars, on the shores of the Western Sea (Ulmar Avandai) and migrate northward to the great mountains of the west, Arn Illandir (Moongates), and eastward towards Arn Haldari (Sungates), settling in the forests and along the shore of Lake Naeril in central Gaile. Faeries and the mortal race of gnomes are created as guardian spirits and watchers of the forests by the gods of nature. Unlike the elder fey, elves, faeries and gnomes are not bound to a specific grove, spring, or forest and migrate throughout Gaile. Elves establish vast forest realms and settle along the coasts, laying the foundations for their great citadels at Asgiroth and Esgavule. The eldari of Asgiroth (Whitecliff) are corrupted through the machinations of the Silath Falgur, fell servants of rebellious gods bent on the domination of Gaile’s mortals. Narveg, Moloth and Illichor craft Illariun, a magnificent white opal, and present it as a gift to the eldari queen Aenori. This magnificent gem, set upon a mithril crown, is said to grant her great insight into, and influence over, the minds of her subjects. The realm of Aenori and her consort, Prince Kharec, prospers under their rule and, gradually, the Kingdom of the Asgiroth encroaches upon the Arvecir realm of Celindale. Niriel, daughter of King Halengir of Celindale, warns her people of the dark influence that has gripped the elves of Asgiroth and foretells of a great war between the elven kingdoms. The Sundering of the Elves results as the Eldari of Asgiroth begin annexing Arvecir lands and leads to a massive war between these two kingdoms of elves. The war is fought upon Ulmirdon (The Golden Sea), a vast field bordering the western expanse of Celindale. Aenori flees from her battle-ravaged kingdom and seeks the shelter of Narveg, Lord of Lies. As years of civil war threaten to destroy these two most powerful of elven houses, Narveg fathers the first of the race of dark elves with Aenori. The Silath Falgur use the magic of Illaruin and the first daughter of Aenori, Tiandra, to create the goblinoid races, breeding these mockeries of elves as warriors and slaves. Tiandra, raised to status of quasideity, is still revered as a mother-goddess by the goblinoid people. After years of warfare hundreds of goblins rise from Borukhel and slaughter the few high elves remaining to garrison the gates of Asgiroth and raze most of the city. Ulmirdon serves as the grave for over 20,000 elves, including the Forest King, and is renamed Olmad Nolgr (The Sea of Corpses). Moved by the suffering of the elven people the god Lucien frees the elves of Asgiroth from the fell influence of Narveg and Illariun. Driven mad with guilt and grief, Kharec refuses to call back his nearly decimated forces and continues his war against the Arvecir. In order to save the besieged city of Asgiroth and wrest control from his mad father, Osriel leads a revolt against him and is forced to slay him at Amryll’s Well. Osriel then petitions Niriel, Queen of the Arvecir, for peace. Osriel’s people are pardoned by Niriel and, finding their city nearly destroyed and overrun by goblins, begin their long march West to the shores of Ulmar Avandai. Illariun shatters from the dark magics used in the creation of the goblins, its darkened shards hidden away deep beneath the earth in shrines dedicated to the Dark Servants. The line of Osriel settles Esgavule (Whitegull). Goblins, in the meanwhile, gather in great numbers in the bowels of Borukhel and amid the ruins of Asgiroth. As Gerian created the treants in the earliest days of the world Moloth now creates trolls as protectors for the race of goblins and as elite warriors for the Silath Falgur. Dumador wars with Moloth over this bastardized creation in The Great Rending; a horrific war responsible for earthquakes and volcanoes throughout the western lands of Gaile. During this clash comes Dumador’s creation of the dwarves from the very stone from which trolls were formed. With armies of these dwarves under his command, Dumador drives Moloth into hiding and drives the race of trolls to near extinction. Dwarves begin their migration from central Gaile to all corners of the vast continent. The first meetings of elves and dwarves at Arn Ilandir and Arn Haldari leads to a series a small skirmishes, as the races argue their claims to these mountains. Outnumbered and disgusted, the dwarves embark upon their Trail of Sorrow, toward Asgiroth and Tol Gorog (Grim Peaks). 1

15,750 PCY: 15,250 PCY: Dwarves drive goblins from Asgiroth and most of Tol Gorog under the leadership of Daroc Morudson and Baldrim Greybeard. The dwarves divide into ten clans and search for more territories to claim as their birthright. Illichor corrupts Duergrid Angreddin, head of clan Angreddin, with a shard of Illariun and its promise of power. Duergrid, paranoid and driven by greed, kills his clan of 200 with the aid of his 10 sons and an avatar of Illichor that has assumed dwarven form. Duergrid’s descendants are the progenitors of the dwarven subrace of duergar, while both Duergrid and his sons are doomed to become the first line of dragons, cursed to hoard wealth but never to enjoy its splendor and to always hunger without hope of succor. Baloth, planning to conquer the divided races of Gaile, brings The Wasting, a terrible blight, to the forests of Gaile. Treants and the elder fey suffer unrelenting agony and die in great numbers. Other forest dwellers suffer as the blight kills most sources of sustenance and causes pestilence to spread throughout Gaile. In Gaile’s mountains dwarves wage ceaseless war against hosts of troll and goblin armies. The gods, lamenting the fey, elven and dwarven races’ inexorable ties to the fate of the land and fearing their demise through unceasing, bloody battles against the foul creations of The Dark Servants, set out to create a new race. From the blood of slain godlings the “Child Race” of mankind is created. To this race is given the gifts of fertility, adaptability and ingenuity. Over the next millennium, the races of dwarves and elves guide the “Child Race,” teaching them much in the ways of craft and lore. Many battles are fought by the united forces of humans, dwarves and elves against the corrupted races of the Dark Servants. Borukhel erupts with thousands of goblins. Trolls, led by Moloth, and undead forces, under the command of Ulgren, assist in the bloody campaign. Nearly 100 years of fighting follow, involving all of the races of Gaile as well as the Silathae (Servitors). Widespread death and destruction makes central Gaile into a veritable wasteland. All races are driven to near extinction in The First Great War. Survivors of the war fall to the famine and pestilence that grips all of Gaile. The races of Gaile recover from the devastation of the Great War. This era is marked by great cooperation among the races of Gaile, with great exchanges of knowledge, culture and goods taking place. This period of time is called The Great Migration, a time when races of humans, elves and dwarves sought new frontiers and explored that far reaches of Gaile. Small wars erupt over disputed territorial claims, but these are minor compared to past wars. During the relative peace of this era, the pursuit of knowledge and the arts leads to great technological and social changes throughout the realms of Gaile. Cities grow mighty along the coasts, rivers and trade routes that link the realms of the three races. Theological and scientific studies lead to the study of Arcanology in the major cities of Gaile. Once shrouded in mystery, the manipulation of magic becomes accessible to those academics who immerse themselves into this burgeoning discipline. The use of magic leads to leaps of knowledge, productivity and creativity. Both construction and destruction are aided through its use, as magic is employed in all manner of craft and upon the field of battle. Over time, practitioners of magic, called Archons, are increasingly at odds with the priests of The High Gathering. Those whom the gods had granted powers consider wizards to be abominations, who seek to deify themselves through the use of magic. The Sect of Aethrude acts as intermediary between the Archons and priests of The High Gathering, trying desperately to quell the rising storm caused by this conflict. Seizing this opportunity, Moloth, Narveg and Illichor emerge from long years of hiding and send their avatars into the world to gather those hostile to The High Gathering. Desperate in their struggle against the majority of the gods, the Silath Falgur with the aid of Avellior, “the Mad God”, reach beyond the gulf of time and space in order to contact primordial powers known as The Sleeping Gods. Disciples of the Silath Falgur are charged with the task of creating gates to the “elseworlds” that are home to these powers in order to channel their power. To bring practitioners of magic into the dark gods’ service, The Tower of Sorcery is erected in the greatest city of Gaile, Tarn Hirrod. Its adherents, The Assembly of Sorcerers, spread their arcane knowledge, and their opposition to The High Gathering, throughout the lands. Over time, the influence of The Assembly of Sorcerers leads to religious upheaval and political turmoil, as the corruption of the Fell Gods turns the lands’ rulers against the Church and each other. Servants of The Tower of Sorcery establish gates to an alternate Prime Material Plane ruled by illithid servants of The Sleeping Gods. Meanwhile, the monstrous servants of the Silath Falgur renew their attacks upon the strongholds of their ancient enemies. The Great Wyrm, Chrysophyllax, terrorizes the Kingdom of Edanil and weakens its defenses against the waves of inhuman marauders that ceaselessly attack its northern borders. The Second Great War pits the priests of The High Gathering against The Sorcerers, kingdom against kingdom, and the unholy creations of Baloth, Moloth, and Narveg against the races of mankind, elf, and dwarf. Years of unremitting warfare follow, ending with a cataclysmic meteor strike that obliterated much of central Gaile, splitting Gaile into the continents of Avandunil (The Western Lands) and Estegalle (Eastern Gaile). The epicenter of this catastrophe is the city of Tarn Hirrod, which is located on the southeastern shore of Lake Naeril in what was central Gaile. The worst devastation fell upon the people of Eastern Gaile, while those of the westernmost lands were spared from the worst of the gods’ wrath.

Second Historical Period: The Age of Darkness (Pre-Common Year)
6,000 PCY-2,000 PCY: Once again, the races of Gaile fight their way back from the brink of destruction. The Men of the West (Avadain) unite the peoples of Avandunil and rebuild great kingdoms out of the ashes of The Second Great War. In Estegalle, savagery and chaos reign over the lands, as starved and desperate tribes wage war over fertile lands and hunting grounds. Small clanholds are the only semblance of civilization during this period of time. As the kingdoms of Avandunil grow mighty, the people of Estegalle start to form petty kingdoms that are locked in constant war. In 1035 PCY, the Tribe of Maurid, followers of Shardan the Wise, establish the Kingdom of Mauridia in the banks of the River Sahavim, beyond the Sheltering Sea. The first waves of Avadain conquerors begin arriving in 12PCY.
