Earthers or Earthworlders, refer to Humans who were transported from Earth.

The main Earthers that The Wandering Inn's storyline focuses on are; Erin Solstice and Ryoka Griffin. To a lesser extent, sidestories follow other Earthers including Trey Atwood, Geneva Scala, Luan Khumalo, Laken Godart, Aaron Vanwell, and Thomas among others.

Overview[]

People from Earth were teleported to Innworld by way of a magical ritual undertaken by [High Mages] commanded by the Blighted King. This ritual, powered by sacrificing hundreds of unborn children, was enacted in the hopes of summoning Heroes in order to gain an edge over the Demons.[1][2] Earthers are able to level exponentially faster than the native Innworld inhabitants, being able to level in a year what has taken decades for most.

The first transportation/abduction happened in Autumn 2016 (Earthside), but the process has continued, with large numbers of Earthers randomly coming in two major waves. Time passes at a different slower in Innworld than on Earth, as while less than a year has passed on Innworld, Earthers from 2016 to 2021 have arrived.

Wistram was the first major world power to be made aware of the phenomenon, after Aaron Vanwell was directly transported to the academy. Since then, they have made an effort to secretly find and gather as many Earthers as they can.

In most cases, the transported Earthers have appeared in small groups or individually. The largest reported mass-transportations so far happened in the following areas:

  • In Rhir, where the Blighted King finished a ritual to transport over sixty Earthers. This group became later known as the Americans.[3] After the ritual during the Summer Solstice, over a hundred and ten new Earthers were summoned to Rhir,[4]
  • In Northern or Central Izril, where the Earthers in question was abducted from an airport in Chicago. They appeared in different locations: a village infested by Crelers, a city, and a forest.[5]
  • In Southern Baleros where a large group of passengers was abducted from an airport in Melbourne. Some from this group formed the United Nations Company, which consists in its current state of Earthers that were primarily found or rescued at a later date on the continent.[6]
  • In Southern Chandrar, a very mixed group of 18 people appeared that was also abducted from one of the airports of Earth, apparently selected from the mass of people there for unknown criteria. The oldest of them was a Chinese woman of 26, the youngest a 15 year old girl separated from her parents.[7]

The Earthers are primarily young adults and adolescents, ranging from 16 years old (Trey and Teres) to 24 (Geneva) and 25 (Luan).

For some unknown reason, Earthers are unable to remember their home, family, and friends, similar to a blank spot in their memories, unless they give an effort. While they can remember everything else about Earth (including history, politics, inventions, etc), but they are unable to recall them unless they try to remember or something reminds them.[8][9] (The only Earthers who seem to be unaffected by this phenomenon are Ryoka and Erin; Ryoka has reminisced about her father (albeit unpleasantly), and Erin, upon receiving [Like Fire, Memory], has also been able to remember details of her family.)

Highly speculative: Randomness and frequency of the irregular transportation pattern make it plausible that so far, thousands if not tens of thousands of Earthers were transported to Innworld. Most of those who appeared in the unknown world barely survived and the story covers mostly those who did and who speak English, and who own an iPhone.

The Blighted King's [High Mages] and [Chronomancer] Nereshal have speculated that for the 10,000 sacrificed unborn souls, exactly 1000 people might have been translocated to their world - but they also concluded that most must have died, either killed by monsters or local natives; or otherwise drowned or falling to death from being teleported into the air.[10] (The last point has been confirmed by Shadeward Doroumata, who divulges to Eldavin that Human corpses have been found outside the Drowned Folk's undersea cities)[11]

Trivia[]

  • Initially, Krshia heard that fellow Gnolls had seen strange Humans in the southern Gnoll Plains before, but those were all "long dead" when they were found. Since she made that remark when Erin was not even a month in Liscor, this implies that either this was the latest news among the Gnolls, or that there were transportations even before Erin landed in Innworld.[41] However, Kasigna would later claim that Erin was the "first of them," which brings this news in doubt.
