News from Gwenth

Ah, gosh.. Is it 20xx with you?

I bet Gwenthia was started somewhere in 2004 or 2005, so we're about 16 years in! However time moves so much slower, and so it's been but a few moons.. [:-}]

The site is fairly robust, but no changes since 2012 basically..

Sadly gwenthia dot org has been seized, copied and use by malware scum, so avoid

Zathur is a land of three distinct cultures living together in an uncomfortable symbiosis. It proclaims itself to be the most ancient land in all the world, ruled by immortals that remember when the gods walked upon the earth and man flew in the heavens like seraphim amongst the stars. It is a land of radical juxtapositions, the ancient Zathurians live amongst colossal and impossible cities that defy the technology? of the rest of Gwenthia, and yet they are trapped within them by the fear of mortality. They have powers and abilities that make them godlike to all around them; they are served by inhuman servants and talk directly with the gods?, yet fear to tread beyond the taboo laden borders of the Zathuri Marg. The Tharux are city dwellers that believe the Zathurians to be deities of great power, their small towns and cities? litter the Tharagax region, but are mere shadows of the arcologies? of their masters, yet are extremely beautiful with their white washed walls, ornate tiles, glittering temples and masterfully devised gardens. The Tharux are clan? like, and in fighting is common, each clings to clan? clings to deep secrets of alchemy?, physics and technology?. The Tharux traders scour Gwenthia in search of lost secrets, slaves and new inventions?. If it were not for the strength of the Three Brother Kings? then their country would fall upon itself in civil war. The wind blasted plains of Southern Zathur, known as the Zharaghal are the home to the Zharaan, a primitive nomadic people, who ride the fearsome Khamul, surviving under the most inhospitable extremes. They serve the Zathurians doggedly, yet have never looked upon the great cities of their gods. Their fearsome reputation and warlike nature has formed a human bolster between the lands of Zathur and its neighbours, yet they have never sought to expand their territories, for their masters have not wished it, however there are few that have not heard of these formidable warriors.

There are also lesser peoples within the domain of Zathur, most notably the psychic Ghazazi and the enslaved mountain people known as the Tegreet. They each have their own roles to play in the future of Zathur, yet mostly remain unseen from the eyes of the casual visitor.
