exactly is the Santharian Dream all about?
The Santharian Dream - simply put - is a comprehensive, completely non-profit
site for people who like fantasy. It is directed at those who
enjoy role playing of every kind (play-by-post, computer games
etc.), but it is also a site for writers, artists and
musicians who like working on fantasy related stuff. The most
fun with the site all those will have who have always dreamed
of building a fantasy world and would like to join an epic
endeavour to create such a world in a cooperative online
effort of many people from all over the world. If you don't
feel that creative to participate yourself in development,
just lean back and enjoy the works of the Santharian
development team, be it artwork, stories, poems, site entries,
songs or wallpapers you can download. Or check out the RPG

developing. And everything will remain free for the next millenium. So there are no
ads in Santharia, no permanently animating link exchange
banners, no pop-up windows. Surf around, compare it with other
sites - and see the
All costs in Santharia are carried by the webmaster and there
is no intention to ever introduce commercial ideas in the
Santharian Dream. If you want to support Santharia in a way
financially, though, then don't support the webmaster with
money, but please consider commissioning artwork (e.g. a
character portrait) from one of
our Santharian artists (read more details
here) . This
way you support the artists and the Dream.
Since when does the
Santharian Dream project exist?
The Santharian Dream was founded in November 1998 and has made
rapid progress from then on, thanks to the help of dozens of
people who contributed to the project. The Role
Playing Message Board harbouring play-by-post games was
launched in July 2000 as an addition to world development and
works in many ways independently from the development project.
In 2003 the team has started to work as well on a graphical
single-player role-playing game adventure in the Santharian
