Iourn is a fictional fantasy setting for the Dungeons and Dragons roleplaying game. It was created by yours truly back in the Summer of 2000 as good way to test the then new third edition rules. It grew in the telling as my own ideas were augmented by those of the players, and the world shaped by the actions of their characters. It’s been fifteen years since that first campaign, and although we play less frequently than in the old university days, the story still continues.
Back in the days when I had free time I maintained a website dedicated to Iourn. It’s still online and you can find it here:
The site hasn’t been updated since 2009, and I long ago came to the conclusion that if I was going to add more content I would also need to change the look and format of the site. I’d want something that could be viewed equally well on the numerous devices that we now use to access the Internet. And then it occurred me that I already have a blog that does that.
Over the coming months and years (although hopefully not too many years) I am going to migrate the content from the old website over to this blog. When I’m done I’ll make sure that the iourn.com URL points here. This project will require me to alter the format of this blog. So there’s quite a bit of work to be done.
There’s already some Iourn-related information on this blog that isn’t on the old website, but I’m going to start putting up more information, adding more content that may (perhaps) including the lost logs of our oldest sessions. It’s big job, and I’m not going to kid myself that this is going to be finished any time soon. But it is a project I’m going to be working on.
I’m starting today with information on the Tavern Tales campaign that begins very soon.
