The organisation team for Tales of Teana is made up of a number of individuals with many years of gaming, GMing and playing experience, as well as real world business experience in a variety of fields; with the goal of bringing you, the player, a game that is both smoothly run and an exceptional gaming experience.

The Tales of Teana story is based in Arnhelm, a fantasy kingdom controlled by the humans. It has become a refuge to many different races who have run or been chased from their homes… many of whom arrived only narrowly avoiding a terrible death on the way. It is a melting pot of cultures gently simmering together under the watchful eyes of the King, his Arch-Dukes and their vassals. Monsters lurk just outside, waiting for their chance to ambush or raid. Cloying politics cling to the noble lords and ladies and their courts, as they jostle for esteem and power. Somewhere between the terrors without and the intrigues within, the commoners eke out a living or strive for recognition.

The Barbarian, in his furs and dirt, seeks to earn his Name, without which he cannot go home a man. The Elf, shipwrecked and branded with the mark of a mage, strives to make a home of this place under the watchful gaze of a Slayer. A Hobling darts through the crowd, tools of his trade playing a discordant tune at his belt, and a Half-Ogre argues the price of leather over the noise of the town market. This is the mix into which you arrive, be you Human or Biata, Elf or Dwarf. This is the Kingdom of Arnhelm. Tell your story.

The focus of the Tales of Teana events is on intensive role-play. Social power rests in the hands of the nobility (NPCs) and Players start as commoners who either strive to impress them or, at the very least, not offend them. Whether you wish to play the political game and grasp after status; hunt monsters and smite invaders; seek the wealth of ages and respect it brings; or just enjoy exploring your Character’s personality and making friends; the choice is yours. Plot lines and stories are created to be Player-centric so you can expect your Character to be the focus of storylines at times, so that each player is given the opportunity to shine. In the end though, it is the Players who make the stories, who give life to the land and bring the setting to fullness. Be whatever you want to be with enthusiasm and passion and the game will come alive for you.
