The World of Rodinia
is a fantasy setting which began life in 2000 with the The Kingdom of Albion
as a place to locate a fledgling D&D campaign. Over the years further campaigns were run in Albion until I decided to expand the world and detail more of Albion's neighbours and beyond. Thus was the World of Rodinia born.
I decided to create my own WAMP set up and wrote pages of code to access a mySQL database which held all the details of my world. This took a lot of time and effort to maintain, not just in terms of the actual world information but also in terms of maintaining and developing the code base to display the world.
In 2012 I wrote and published my first novel, Reynard's Fate
, which I based in the previously undeveloped Lucarcian Continent
. This was followed in 2014 by Kita's Honour
, which followed the adventures of The Crew of the Javelin
as they fought to stop the Writhing Death and save their homeland. Writing these novels really helped develop the lands in which they were based.
In 2020, with the world in the grips of the Coronavirus Pandemic, I found myself with some spare time on my hands and an itch to do something more with the World of Rodinia, so I took the step of migrating my world to the excellent World Anvil site which hosts many, many worlds like mine.
