With Erde, Troll Lord Games aim to create a living fantasy world where realism rubs shoulders with the epic. Supported by a range of products and a CSC - Legends of Erde - the sheer scope of this setting renders it fascinating.
"From the Maelstrom the All Father forged the world and he thought to himself that he would people it with all manner of beast. And this he did, so that in time of years the whole of the world was populated by Dwarves and Elves, Goblins and Men, by Dragons and other strange incarnations. But all this wealth of life brought the horned god and he fell upon all that was beautiful and bound it to himself in a wintery grip.
"For a thousand years the world stood thus.
"But eventually war came to the horned god and in the blood washed battlefields of the Winter Dark Wars Erde was born anew."
