REBOOT – Jan 31, 2014

This site is only just now getting a complete reboot for the first time since 2009. Please let me know if you find broken links.


I have long loved the old TSR fantasy board game, Divine Right. I often wondered when I was younger how it could be that Dragon magazine would publish histories (Minarian Legends) of a world that they did not use for role-playing. An ambition of mine for some time has been to translate the writings of Glenn Rahman, one of the designers of the board game, into something suitable for RPG. These documents below are an attempt to take the world of Minaria and turn it into a setting suitable for 3rd edition D&D.

I have worked quite hard at reconciling the various Minarian Legends, including incorporating the newer material which made its way into the 25th anniversary edition of the game. I am sure it will come as no surprise that there are some gaps in the Minarian Legends, including chronological blanks, so I have made a “best guess” where necessary. To that volume of material I have added my own creations, blending them (I hope) seamlessly into the existing information. Glenn has been supportive of the attempt and permitted me access to unpublished material on the Scarlet Empire (Girion) and Reiken.

Also included here is a Minarian Legend (Dwarves) first published in Dragon Magazine in 1981. This particular legend I have not found elsewhere on the Internet and so it is offered here.

            Many thanks to Glenn Rahman for his tolerance with my meddling in the world of Minaria.
