Written by Matt Vancil, the creator of The Gamers and JourneyQuest, this book represents over twenty years of worldbuilding from a master of fantasy.

A fantasy world created by Matt Vancil, Fartherall is the setting of dozens of stories told over the last twenty years: from The Gamers to JourneyQuest and from The Gamers: Nodwick’s Tale (by Aaron Williams) and The Shadow’s Dungeon (by Sean Reynolds) to Nethadrick’s Pranks (by Kevin Mickelson).

Plus, the book features hundreds of new characters, from heroes to villains to demigods, created by the Fartherall fan community!

While many of these stories and characters originated in comedy, Fartherall the world isn’t a farce. Matt Vancil has meticulously built a fantasy world around consistent physics, themes, and rules, a world where unlimited new stories are possible, from the early ages of gods and mythic heroes to the grimy protagonists of the Age of Steam, from intimate fairy tales to dimension-hopping epics.

Although only gnomes are allowed to break the laws of physics when they fall. It’s in the rules. Sorry.

What is Fartherall?

This is not the only world there is.

Even in the world’s earliest ages, its inhabitants, both mortal and divine, were aware of the existence of other worlds. From the emergence of the gods from the primordial chaos to the arrival of the two migrant elder races, Fartherall’s history has involved visitors from elsewhere.

In the middle ages of Fartherall, waves of peoples arrived en masse or awakened in the abandoned places of the world. Its pantheon expanded and contracted as deific entities arrived, departed, transformed, or were slain. And in the margins of the world, in the wildest corners and sealed away in tomb-like ruins, lay Creation’s most dangerous pitfalls—black circles—those indestructible holes in the universe that lead to destinations unknown even to the gods.

Who is This Book Made For?
