150 Years From Now
Humans impose their will and technology upon a distant world
3500 Years From Now
Man's rule is ancient history, Earth only a shadowy myth.
Humans and other intelligent races survive using technologies
and tools of other times and other cultures. Their own
inspiring past eagerly awaits discovery beneath millenia of war
3500 Years From Now Is Your Time On Jorune
Leave Your World Behind
- The original Skyrealms of Jorune teaser
In the deep reaches of space lies a glistening blue world referred to as Jorune by most of its inhabitans. It has carried many names throughout the ages and has been a battleground for terrible wars in the past.
Now, it lies forgotten amid the sparkling cold stars - until it is rediscovered again.
The ancient terran colony that existed on the world is long gone, but the hapless humans that were abandoned there still thrive. The descendants of the human colonists have made a place for themselves amid alien races and a hostile natural envoronment. Their origins is the stuff of legends and myths, they live their lives, as generations have done before, oblivious of their once glorious past.
If you are new to Jorune, read more about human and shantic history throughout the millenia in the Humans and Shantas on Jorune essay from Skyrealms.
If you are already familiar with Jorune, please read on:
Jorune is a magical place, full of extraordinary natural wonders, colourful inhabitants and great mysteries. Just like the terran colony was forgotten/abandoned, so were the Jorune fans, when no more books on Jorune were published. Like many other sholaris, I began to build upon the great world of Jorune, adding first names and places, then beasts and items. Soon, the world of Jorune had grown immensely and I found that there was now a great number of cultures, religions and realms complete with the historic events which shaped them. Always trying to follow the original concept laid out by Skyrealms Publishing I expanded Jorune and tried to solve her mysteries. Over the years, my version of Jorune might very well have come to differ from what other sholaris believe Jorune to be like, but I still hope that you might find some or all of my additions entertaining.
An introduction to my view of Jorune with some thoughts regarding timeline, spread of humanity, Languages, race relations, religions, earth-tech, power factions, world conspiracies, isho, tra-sense and shantic tech
An overview of the strange and nearly impossible star system wherein Jorune and it's moons is situated. Aboslutely not canon, but provides a good overview and isho phenomena overview in my campaigns. Also used during my campaigns set in Jorune's future.
Original site officially launched. Hope you like it!

The following people should be appointed drenn status (at least):
Andrew and Amy Leker
For creating the amazing world of Jorune.
For letting me use his incredible Jorune artwork and for creating the amazing world of Jorune.
My super wife. For tolerating late night role-playing sessions all these years and enduring my hours in front of the computer.
The Roleplaying kids
My kids - Elliot & Molly - and some of the kids of the other roleplayers - play roleplaying games as well, and often inspire me with ideas and drawings for nasty deadly monsters, gruesome traps and cruel NPCs. The minds of kids are scary....
Friend, rugby player and computer freak who always helps me when I get stuck with my webpage work.
For being devoted to Jorune and keeping the exploratory spirit alive.
For his amazing images of the characters adventuring on Jorune and throughout Widewater.
For his amazing and often funny images of Jorune, player characters and Jorune nasties. Most of them drawn while playing or depicting certain scenes.
For enduring and expanding on my adventure ideas and often surprising me with their clever/stupid/strange/unwholesome actions.
The Jorune Groups
First via email lists and then via Facebook. A lot of ideas bubble through from there and start growing into unwholesome (for my players) adventure ideas.
