The Coming of the Zioth

The Coming of the Zioth


Welcome to a world that has nineteen years left to live. In nineteen years, on the one thousand twentieth year of the Zioth, all five moons will leave the sky for a night, and the world will be destroyed and rebuilt. But who can believe such stories in a world at its prime? Everything is normal. The strange creatures of legend are nowhere to be seen, and magic? A story to put children to sleep.

The Coming of the Zioth is part of an original D&D campaign world that's been growing and changing since 1994. Use the links below or the navigation on the left to explore the game world.

I'd like to thank all the players, past and present, for making this such a fun campaign, especially Nathan Weismuller, former player of Johannesplugin-autotooltip__default plugin-autotooltip_bigMaster Johannes Eltermann

Johannes Eltermann is very tall, and slightly more slender than average, and has a well-defined, delicate bone structure. His hair and eyes are dark brown. He keeps himself well-groomed and clean-shaven, and tends to dress in plain but well-tailored clothing in dark, formal colors. The lack of ostentation flaunts his taste. He currently wears good-quality traveling clothes with matching boots, a belt, from which a dagger hangs, and a cloak.
. He decided to play a scholar, and found the Zioth world a lot less complete than he would have liked. Over the course of a couple years, he fleshed out every piece of geography or history he was interested in. A big chunk of what you'll find on this site was either written by him or inspired by him.

I'll also thank Jason Lomelli, player of Daluarplugin-autotooltip__default plugin-autotooltip_bigDaluar Sulanguan

Daluar is a wiry, coal-skinned Terradian in the gray-and-blue uniform of a Calipperi soldier. He keeps both his face and head clean-shaven, and his leather armor in good condition; he has even tried to shape the rough patches on the collar, vambraces, and headband into regular contours. A rapier frogged at his hip, a quiver and longbow on his back, and a couple of pouches on his belt comprise most of his possessions.
, who proof-read chapters 2-5 and turns 9-83 before even joining the game. The number of embarrassing grammatical and spelling mistakes has decreased drastically.
