The demon from the stars / Watches from his stone tomb

 

The face of the world has been changed irrevocably by the Omega Event, when Azalor Maltheridas finally emerged from his millenia-long slumber within his three towers and threatened to undo all of creation. Six adventurers took up arms against him and his minions, and stepped through the rift he opened to an impossible place to do battle with an impossible foe. It is apparent that they succeeded, else the world - and perhaps all of existence - would have ceased to be.

However, in the wake of the Omega, the world faces new challenges. Ancient ruins, once buried beneath the sands and waves, have risen, bearing the promise of treasure for those bold enough to brave their depths - and the monsters that have also awoken with them. A reshaped, scarred landscape causes political turmoil as boundaries are redrawn, and conflict inevitably rises when diplomacy fails. Meanwhile, the nine Forces - the very fabric from which the reality of Trinity is woven - have begun to unravel, losing their strength, and societies reliant upon them begin to sense that, while the end Omega sought has been averted, perhaps it has only been replaced by another.

The echoes of what has come linger in time maybe lost. The future of the shattered reality of Trinity is uncertain. The very nature of existence seems to be changing, and as the old guard slowly passes into memory, new individuals must step forward if the truth is to be found and the future saved. Can the decline of civilization be stopped? Can the Forces be revived? Or is all of existence doomed to become a pale shadow, a mere echo of what it once was?

 


 

It is the first of Plumfrost in the year 111 by the After Omega calendar. While it has been over a century since the Omega's machinations ruined the face of Yskarithe and ravaged the Beams, tragedy has befallen the world once more: the vast majority of the peoples of Yskarithe simply vanished from the faces of the worlds triune twenty years ago. What had been recovering fell into disrepair almost immediately as supply chains crumbled and entire cities became uninhabited in the blink of an eye.

In the wake of that devastation, and with a need for those willing to traverse the now-wilds of the world to keep what points of light remained safe, the Pathfinder Society was founded: a loose organization of adventurers and scholars, dedicated to recovering knowledge and secrets of those long past. With support in every remaining major city, the society funds adventurers not for the pursuit of mox and coin, but instead manuscripts and blueprints, artefacts and histories.

You have recently decided to join the Pathfinder Society, whether with the intent of helping to salvage the histories of Yskarithe, or to get rich by becoming a famous explorer. To that end - and armed with an invitation from the venture-captain - you have traveled to the Deryni city of Lutibedde, the shining city of crystal towers on the eastern coast of Romanda. Whatever your life may have been before, you get the sense that things are about to take a turn for the interesting...

...and somewhere, in this Time of Echoes, hidden in the dark places of the worlds, nine crystals shed their light silently, as the souls of slain gods stir, restless against the seal that binds them in a space between places, in a time between moments...

 


 

This section has all the information regarding the setting: geography, political bodies, lore, and all that of that sort of thing. If there is important mechanical information relevant to a topic, it will typically provide a link to the relevant mechanics page, but note that some mechanics pages have lore in them, as well.
This section is home to all of our Trinity-specific d20 mechanics: a mechanical system that, for the time being, is referred to on this wiki as "t20v4." Everything you need to create and play a character within the context of the worlds of Trinity can be found in this section.

 

This section is home to the game system we spent several years developing, called Journey. Note that it is... incomplete, and at this time my efforts are more focused on making t20v4 behave, in some ways, like we wanted Journey to behave.
This section is a very rough record of the various metaplots, campaigns, and games played in Trinity, generally using both the setting and mechanics, as outlined above. This section is more for record-keeping, but might also eventually be used to store logs and such for various games.
