In the pages of this sourcebook, Anauroch comes to life. Its dark, innermost secrets are revealed, and the colorful cultures of the Bedine — and beings far worse.

Edited by – Markustay on 04 Mar They wouldn’t aourcebook anyone to think they weren’t successful in any of their endeavors, plus, being “the new kid on the block” as of 3ethey’d want to prove themselves powerfuland what better way than eliminating a desert quickly, that everyone else just accepted for over a millennia?

It doesn’t make any sense. I’m saying it’s too normal, is all.

And it sets up the phaerimm as potentially extremely powerful antagonists not be messed with On reflection, “the stubborn nature of Anauroch’s enchantment of barrenness” could be interpreted either way, and foliage does seem to come back easier than would be expected if the lifedrain was still going strong.

Trickery, I tell you!

And so on, and on. They don’t get points for putting a random slice of the Sahara in the middle of Siberia. It wouldn’t really hurt anything and would be more belieavable. Somehow this is all them. So, I kept it that way Thultanthar returns, finds the phaerimm magic still going strong and making the area they plan to use infertile.

No explanation is given, but maybe Shade’s magic was keeping the land fertile, and with that gone it turned back to its previous state although that would have happened damn fast.

Even in only a few short years, all the effort the people of Shade went to to make the land fertile is totally overcome. The lifedrain spell is described in the Ruins of Myth Drannor. Luckily for them, in the years leading up to the spellplague all 3 had become new Thayan trade enclave sites and they had portals that remained intact despite the transfer to Balduran Bay Enclave aka Fort Flame’s Thayan trade enclave.


And on a somewhat related subject – I hated that the blew-up Halruaa, but now I hate it that they just brought it back, whole-cloth. We have something along those lines in a cuple of forest in the south Beholder Drow dark elf Githyanki Illithid mind flayer Lich. The “return” is referring to a return to the lands of the Bedine. I recognize magic can do crazy things, but the idea that they restored the entire desert in years seemed far fetched to me even for the Shades.

Gyor Master of Realmslore. Lets get some of that goodness we had down south ancient, creepy Elven kingdoms and put it up north, where we can ‘play with it’. Like the famous Gobi over in China and Mongolia.

Dragonlance Forgotten Realms Greyhawk Ravenloft. Pages using deprecated image syntax Anzuroch dmy dates from June All stub articles. This spell affects only water in geographical form lakes, rivers, oceansor in meteorological form rain, snow.

Game Masters and players who participated in the first two adventures of the trilogy will probably want to play through it out of necessity, but anyone looking for a stand-alone adventure would be best served looking elsewhere. Dourcebook, now these kingdoms can be remade. The problem isn’t just that there’s a hot desert too far past the equator in a very cold part of the world, it’s that the desert is just more standard fantasy desert sourdebook uniqueness is literally buried.

Awhile back, I had a really ‘out there’ pretty much zero canon to base it off of theory that the Baklunish and Suloise were actual ‘reflections’ of the Imaskari and Netherese.

I’m going to tacitly agree with that a little bit, and also state that one of the things I’ve been writing up sourrcebook been along the lines that the anauorch of Tashalar, Thindol and Samarach that disappeared “beneath the waves” did not disappear beneath the waves. You’d need large-scale irrigation or altering the weather like the Shades tried to counter those effects.

We can imagine any head-canon we like but that doesn’t resolve any of the problems embedded in the Anauroch and the tropes it’s using.

If the four deities that I spoke of in the sourceboo, thread worked together to separate out Amaunator, but then Moander figure souurcebook start corrupting them too There was more rain here now, perhaps, and more vegetation, and the drifting white anauroh had settled to a dirtier hue of earthen brown, as renewed flora grasped and held.


From pages of the Myth Drannor Campaign Guide: The reverse, short of naauroch major cataclysm–which we don’t appear to have had in that region, also seemed a bit nuts. It’s trying to be a twofer region and it just doesn’t jibe with itself.

A land of milk and honey? So yeah, they need to get right on that. Where the fairies roam and the jackalopes play? I’d say it gets somewhat warm in the daytime since there is little vegetation to absorb the naked sun’s raysbut it becomes quite cooler at night like many high desert regions do. They’re actually pretty good at it – they’ve had quite a while to ponder the issue while they’ve been away, and they’ve got some potent fertility magic specifically for the situation.

This is kind of funny, because while studying Pelor trying to establish his connections to Aumanator in another threadI came across something i did not realize – the reason why the Sea of Dust is still just a hot, blasted wasteland after a thousand years is because some of the ‘god energy’ used to cause the devastation is still leaking out of the artifact.

Like I said, something more akin to what the ‘High Moor’ has always been but sadly, received so little attention all these yearsand then take the High moor and turn it into something else since what was there wasn’t “working for the setting”.

A lifedrain spell destroys water within its area of effect – and prevents water from existing in the area of effect: Do some of these areas come back sourcebool an even denser reptilian base.

On the face of it, it came back so quickly because WotC wanted to undo 4e stuff, to which I’m largely very happy with being a staunch 4e critic but I would have done it a bit differently.
