I decided to do this so that good pieces of writing and lore information would not die and fall to the bottom of the sub-forum. Note that some of these aren't the full titles of the threads/topics. If you find any other lore bits that aren't here, PM me or post in this thread. This is intended as a resource for up-coming lore writers, or if you want a good read with TEATRC in mind.

If you have any questions regarding EATRC Lore, post a comment in the Universe Expansion & Lore topic, or if you think it requires an entire topic, post one. Thank you.

Post 1495 (Chapter II Onwards):
Note: Most of these extracts are in the TEATRC Lore & Universe Expansion thread, started by jan_boruta.

I'd like to thank you for even including my crappy incomplete lore expansion, hopefully I'll get to feeling like writing again. Although, if anyone would like to do some of there own continuation of the story I started I wouldn't mind it. If I like it enough I'll add it into the story.

I'm having some trouble finding out what Filaharn is. Can someone point me in the right direction?


Best answers
Filaharn is the patron/only/chief deity of the Filaharnist Faith, in a way resembling the Christian God, with the Radiant Cross as his symbol. The Lion Throne and part of the late Ellis Empire worship Filaharn. One piece of note is that Ellis survived because of its Emperor converting to Filaharnism, effectively becoming a client of the Lion Throne, which used to be a simple backwater, and Ellis the world power. The loss of the Swadian provinces to rebellion effectively crippled the Ellis Empire, along with many Ellisian-Swadian Wars, and so the dedicated and cunning Saldian enlarged the 3-province strong Lion Throne to a much larger empire, causing Nikephoros to submit to the Pope.

Sorry for droning on, but there's only short extracts and all that, most of the lore consists of stories.

Is there any info about the clans in the Highlands other than that about the unification of the highlands? I was thinking about writing about them. Alltough I would dismiss the dates given in the piece about the unification of the clans.


Venitius, it's been over a month since you updated this. You're slipping.  :razz:
