This is a Class B (silver star) article.

Worlds like Eamon and Earth are the setting for nearly all the adventures in the Eamon series. This page lists the named worlds that have appeared in, or have been described or mentioned in, publicly released sources.

Key worlds

The overwhelming majority of adventures in Eamon and SwordThrust take place on four key worlds:

  • Eamon. Approximately 210 adventures are set either largely or wholly on the world of Eamon, which is home to the Guild of Free Adventurers, the Main Hall, and a vast array of characters, monsters, castles, kingdoms, and more.
  • Earth. In more or less fictionalized ways, Earth is the primary setting of about 40 adventures that take place in sites ranging from North American cities to South American ruins to European capitals. Some are also set in Earth's past, its present, or its future.
  • Arda. This is the world created by J.R.R. Tolkien as the setting for his stories of Middle-earth including The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and is the setting of 12 adventures in the Eamon corpus written by several different authors.
  • Diurla. Created by Donald Brown, Diurla is Eamon's equivalent in the SwordThrust universe and is the setting for 7 adventures.

Other worlds

Most other worlds appear or are mentioned only within the context of one or two adventures, and some are only identified by the star system in which they're located.
