First off, let me thank you for being here and taking interest in my creative project. Don't hesitate, feel free to peruse and use the content as you like and enjoy as many gaming hours as you can out of it.



Ever since I was eight years old have I explored fantasy worlds through writing, games and movies. At first it was with Choose Your Own Adventure books, which proved an incredible hook, nourishing my imagination and sense of adventure. At ten, I read The Hobbit, forever plunging me into storytelling. At twelve, I tried my hands at role-playing games (RPGs) as a game master (GM) with L'Œil noir (« Das Schwarze Auge »). I just couldn't get enough.

However, it took me another two years before I started playing the then already classic Dungeons & Dragons. As a player, I completely lost myself to the incredible world of Mystara. It eventually led me to create a first world of my own at sixteen and writing stories set in highly magical places at seventeen.

Many different worlds have come and pass since then, but this latest one, Ebberus, feels incredibly tangible.



I want this world to be the perfect setting for any fantasy role-playing game. I want to develop it to the point where any game master can pick and choose elements to fit their campaign, leaving them free to enjoy the hard time they're giving their players. I want everyone of those players to feel the richness of the world they are living through without having the game master go through the long process of creation.

Ebberus is a labor of love for me and is the percolating result of over 25 years of bubbling imagination. I want this world to always be available for free in its online form. I might eventually sell digital books of the world, its stories or games, but I want the website, with the full content, to be free.

I currently only create the parts I need to run my gaming campaigns, very slowly expanding it. However, with this project, I'd like to fuel the process and accelerate it.

I'm not the type to procrastinate. I'm very creative and productive. When I have something to do, I do it, but your input will drive me from one Ebberus elements to another with greater speed.

I want to give my world to the whole world.

Each month, you'll get a vote on what I should be doing next to build it up.


Plus, once I have completed the 20km/hex map of the known world, I will send you a full resolution PNG copy, and you'll receive any update I do to it afterward.
