Description Edit | History

The default setting for Metagaming's The Fantasy Trip. Cidri is a huge planet created by a superhuman race, the Mnoren.

From In the Labyrinth:

"How? We don't know. Where? Good question. It orbits the sun where Earth would be--if there was an Earth in that universe. No one today knows for sure even WHAT Cidri is. Certainly no ordinary planet. Cidri is BIG. No complete map of its surface is known. The standard work, compiled two hundred years ago by the Imperial College of Cartographers at Predimuskity, shows 48 continents (defined as land masses of over 5,000,000 square km.); five of these are in excess of 60,000,000 square km. Almost half the known surface of Cidri is covered with water; most of its seas are dotted with islands. Yet even the great Book of Maps lists nine hundred and eleven locations which cannot be found within the known area--including the mountain city of Paska-Dal, which (by Gate) has carried on commerce with gem merchants everywhere for at least four hundred years."

There are VERY few dates given in any of the published material, along with few descriptions. Thus, there is wide latitude for interpretation. There are some "fixed" (using the term loosely) points, namely the Mnoren settlement of Cidri (strongly implied as being the same time as the settlement of LBTM), the Mikarth expedition to LBTM, the fragmentation of LBTM (in the year 174 of the province), the destruction of Landmaster Hall, and accession of the rulers of Darok and Dihad. Supplementing this are some associated dates, such as the conquest of 371 worlds and settlement of Cidri within 300 years of Jen Mnoren's first journey, etc. All the rest is informed speculation.
With regards to Underearth, I presumed 50 year reigns for the first 10 lords of Chalasi - though dwarves are not long lived like elves, I figured with magical healing, Youth elixirs, and the implied wealth and stability of the Underearth realm through most of its history that a 50 year reign was not out of line; indeed, I may be *underestimating* to a degree. Askthor the XI was slain in the 13th year of his reign, and then there are two more monarchs (XII & XIII) and I assumed 100 years total between them. Askthor XIV endured an attack on Chalasi by orcs in the 21st year of his reign, though it is not stated whether or not he was slain (depends on how well you play the scenario). Though no timeline is given for the attack of Crythal the Amber (which destroyed the realm of Underearth) some length of time is implied; for Underearth had become a wealthy and stable trade centre surrounded by a "sea of disintegrating kingdoms." One would speculate that a minimum of two, and possibly upwards of three or four centuries, had passed. The following scenario involving the fleeing emissaries again implies at least a century or two gap in time, perhaps longer. The very last scenario, which is implied as present, states that at least a few and perhaps several centuries have passed, since there is question as to whether or not the dragon even existed... Note that one could easily extend this timeline, if desired. I have presented a date range for each event, and one may choose a "high" or "low" chronology, as desired, or choose a span of time in between.
