Creature Compendium

Progress on Beyond the Morning Mountains, Volume One continues to go very well, including the recent creation and design of a Creature Compendium insert, which details all of the creatures, monsters and spirits that the player may encounter during the first volume of their journey south – including many new adversaries not already featured on this site.

I’ve also been busily writing some of the bonus material and completing numerous new illustrations (which I’ll likely preview here sometime soon) and have also started the final page layout, which includes a few adjustments from the formatting previously seen in the free preview edition released earlier this year.

Beyond the Morning Mountains expanded!

Due to a not entirely unexpected excess of written content (currently at around 80,000 words) I’ve decided to split the Beyond the Morning Mountains adventure into two books. Volume One will take you from your home north-west of Ustahm down to Balquis, where you can extensively explore this large major city, meeting many of the beggars, thiefs, tradespersons and fellow travellers that this unique city has to offer. Volume Two will then continue your journey over the Morning Mountains to your final destination of Liust; a tough four-day journey across some of the most spectacular scenery available in Quahnarren.

Each book is expected to consist of approximately 800 sections (100,000+ words), with the first book scheduled for release in late 2015, and the second to follow in 2016.

Great statues and sacred trees

The adventure begins

Tales of Quahnarren is a long-term work in progress that will continue to naturally evolve as new ideas and developments become part of this fantasy world-building project.

This site has been developed to bring together all of the various components created so far into one themed location, as previously new content was only featured on my blog, which was not dedicated to the project itself. Initially posted is all of the currently existing content, together with some new creature and spirit descriptions, notes on the history of Quahnarren, plus a detailed map showing major features of the landmass and all of the significant human settlements.

Enjoy the site and forever keep your imagination active!
