Hello RPR Community!

Some of you may already be familiar with Tam'nýer-a', the homebrew fantasy world open to roleplay, created by Demilicious on RPR a little over three years ago; a true passion project, with original lore, fauna and flora, places and races, and its own myths and stories. The role-play group on RPR now has some 30-odd writers across the globe and over a hundred original characters. Because we are still growing, we have recently launched a separate lore website to keep the RPR group to manageable proportions, as well as our own private forums.

Tam'nýer-a' is now an incredibly rich world with multiple layers and something for everyone! There are bustling cities, and merchant vessels sharing the seas with pirate vessels. There are brothels, masters of glassblowing, and blacksmiths who act as alarm clocks for other residents in the great city of Püertagœ. In the background however, and through closed doors are fights for power. To top it all off, the Ṅkhya'jra, a fanatic race living reclusive in the northwest are just waiting to make the world burn in order to fulfil their destiny; re-birthing the Gods, no matter the cost. Indeed, out of the 32 original Gods & Goddesses, only two are still considered alive: VüƑ, God of Time, and his daughter Vojshā, Goddess of the Veil.

No matter where and who you are, however, the Gods and Goddesses of Tam'nýer—a' are paramount and viewed as transcendent truth. They define the world, their stories are eternal, and they touch and resonate with us as only myths can do. Their lessons are profound and multi-layered; they are compelling for the spiritual truth-seeker and the mundane-preoccupied alike. In other words, the perfect guides on our soul journey, allowing us to meditate and discover ourselves in all our beautiful complexity, but also to co-create our paths. Or, as we say in Tam'nýer—a', allowing us to “make our own tapestry”.

This is why, to honour them and help bring them back to life in our own way, we will launch next week our very own

This is to help fund original digital paintings by an outstanding artist with a flair for the mythological!

Now, seeing as our Kickstarter isn't live yet, we do invite you to check out the Kickstarter page on our Official Website if you want more information. We will also post updates here and share the journey!

This will be a special Oracle deck of 32 cards depicting each of the Gods and Goddesses. As a part of this project, we have designed our own spreads for readings, as well as meanings for whether upright or reversed, as the classic Tarot does. Ultimately, the Tam'nýer—a' Fantasy Oracle deck can be used both for mundane readings and spiritual ones.

If you love Tam'nýer-a', myths, oracles, tarot cards or creative projects in general, we ask that you please check out and share our Kickstarter when we launch! Every little bit helps! <3

If you also want to be a patron and help us make the project happen, your support would be extremely appreciated! <3 However, we know that times are hard, and it's not why I posted this here. Sharing is free, and it also supports the RPR community indirectly because it spreads the word about creative projects being built / started here.

Thank you! <3
This.... is amazing!

I am totally going to put down for one of these decks.

The art is GORGEOUS! You chose the artist well!
Having been part of Tam'nýer-a' in the past, I know how rich the mythology and lore is. In truth you could make a whole story with art weaved in or even a D&D style mechanics book. so I am STOKED to see beautiful merch finally coming up!

Thank you Mipps! <3

I have never found an oracle deck which truly called to me, and I am over the moon that we are trying to make this happen. The artist has an incredible feel for mythology and this will be an emotional August for us as things unfold. But we are ready for the adventure! :D

Also, the fact that we have community and people cheering us on is priceless. <3

Ahhh, Mipps!!! Thank you so much, Sweetheart! Your words and support mean the world to me. I am always grateful for you and all that you do. <3 <3


To add to the art-gasm (if I may be so bold), we just got the first batch of art done, and with now you all can see how the border will look as well. I am over the moon excited for the Kickstarter to launch! <3

Here you can read the Creation Myth thanks to the three brothers above:

CREATION MYTH (Y’ljnöx; Y’l, Jn, Öx);
Y'ljnöx are the Brothers born of Sea and Sky; Y'l the eldest, Jn, and Öx. As is the story with most siblings they loved and pranked each other equally, till Jn, intoxicated beyond reasoning, decided on a winter's eve to take from their parents a piece of heart. Doing this on the pretense that he would literally share a piece of their parents' love with his brothers, he brought it to Öx and Y'l telling them he found something for them to try.

On a whim, and eager for Öx & Y'l's reaction, Jn lit the piece of heart on fire for Öx and Y'l to smoke. Expecting the two to be filled with love, admiration, and gratitude, Jn kept offering it to his brothers, without realizing that it was slowly killing his beloved siblings. Eventually, Öx and Y'l collapsed, past all reasoning and hope of being brought back as the only thing that could kill the Brothers was being inundated; and with what more than their parents' love?

The issue was that they already possessed their parents' love and that their parent's heart was not something that they had rights to take and alter. Them extinguishing the piece of heart for their own pleasure and enjoyment that was not their own showed a fatal level of greed.

But all was not lost in the way that with the brothers' death, Jn had to approach his parents and tell them what happened. Out of anger and heartbreak Sea and Sky killed their only remaining son allowing his remains to fall to Tam'nýer—a'. Breaking apart on impact, Jn's physical body became the various land masses in Tam'nýer—a''s oceans. Losing everything apart from each other, Sea and Sky laid down side by side to remain forever. Still very much in love with one another they decided to lay like this to keep themselves from ever laying together again as it only produced pain in the end, but to always remain close.

The art for this Tarot deck looks wonderful! I'm glad you're perusing your dreams towards bringing your thoughtful creations through roleplay to a physical form. :) Best of luck at your launch.

Thank you Cass! <3

We are so eager to launch and over the moon at the artist's interpretation of the Gods and Goddesses so far!
As we share our journey, hopefully this will serve to encourage the RPR community as well, there are so many talented people here. <3
