And so on, and anwuroch. As far as its return post the fall of Shade, I imagine the situation thusly: A dusty sunset filled the western sky with stripes of pink and orange hanging above the endless plain, a reminder that this region was once, not long ago, the vast magical desert known as Anauroch. I’m not actually seeing the huge discrepancies here.

Once there was no moisture and the soil was parched and dry, it stayed sohrcebook way because the local environment had been altered. On the other hand, they’ve gotten rid of the misleading ‘sand terrain’ look and the entirety of the Anauroch is differentiated by several different terrain types, include a ‘badlands’ area that takes up most of the center.

Gyor Master of Realmslore Posts. The desert is just SO boring We know the Anaurcoh survivors abandoned Amaunator wholeheartedly in the wake of the Fall, believing he did nothing to intervene in the collapse of their civilization. Edited by – KanzenAU on 20 Mar It doesn’t make any sense. As far as I can tell, only the Sword is HOT – the other areas of the desert don’t seem to be explicitly described as such. They did instead transfer to Abeir. To the nomadic Bedine, such sights rekindled their ancestral sohrcebook, a reminder of the life their predecessors had known before the transformation of their ancient homeland.

A lifedrain spell destroys water within its area of effect – and prevents water sourcegook existing in the area of effect: They appeared in the middle of something like a continent. Awhile back, I had anaurochh 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.

So, now these kingdoms can be remade. Either explanation would see the melting the High Ice ceasing with the fall of Shade, plus the end of any fertility magic they were working, so maybe an enduring enchantment isn’t necessary to explain the rapid reversal.

Admitedly calling the local nomads “Bedine” was rather typical cheese. Like you say Markustay it makes NO sense to have it there, besides laziness. In canon, only the lower southern desert was supposed to be ‘hot’, but even that was a stretch. It wouldn’t really hurt anything and would be more belieavable. The Empire of Shade takes place in the Forgotten Realms setting, where malign forces conspire to undo the Weave and replace it with the Shadow Weavecausing the Great Desert of Anauroch to change.

I’m going to tacitly agree with that a little bit, and soutcebook state that one of the things I’ve been writing up has been along the lines that the portions of Tashalar, Thindol and Samarach that disappeared “beneath the waves” did not disappear beneath the waves.

The area was verdant during the era before the fall of Netheril, and was turned into a desert by the Sokrcebook.

It seems reasonable that this area could stay dry, but the question of why it stays hot seems to me to be the main problem to take care of. The lifedrain spell is described in anakroch Ruins of Myth Drannor. Eventually, the two empires bumped heads, and the Netherese – maybe for the first time – felt out-matched by Imaskari magic.

There was more rain here now, perhaps, and more vegetation, and the drifting white sands had settled to a dirtier hue of earthen brown, as renewed flora grasped and held. In the current time, RAS describes it becoming a desert again and Mielikki–a goddess of forests–being pleased with that for whatever effin’ reason anaurocb, the SCAG does that too.

Run WILD with it literally.

The ‘buried primordial’ thing doesn’t really work beause the ice wasn’t there when Netheirl was around, so maybe a couple million frozen Sarrukh? That quote from the Companions does make it clear that the 4e Anauroch wasn’t beautiful green plains as could be thought from just looking at the 4e mapso it’s possible the reversal, although rapid, wasn’t quite as crazy a change sourcbook could be thought.


Soucebook Great Reader Italy Posts. It does not affect water contained in living things. This spell affects only water in geographical form lakes, rivers, oceansor in meteorological form rain, snow. Well, when those regions return from Abeir, they are the “Fallen Kingdoms” or “embattled kingdoms” of Samarach, Thindol, and Tashluta.

In fact, sourebook at the map that came with Storm King’s ThunderI would say that region in its entirety should be THE focus for FR stuff moving forward, so not just ‘The North’ but thats what most of that map is, and the ‘border areas’ of it.

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 soircebook stand-alone adventure would be best served looking elsewhere. To know, is to know that you know nothing. Reidand Sean K. But admittedly this theory isn’t drawing on much, and isn’t really following Occam’s Razor.

Put the High Moor where Anauroch sourcebpok, and put the ‘High Elven kingdom’ of Miyeritar where the High Moor was and give that kingdom a bit of a pre-fall Aryvandaar vibe, with different factions having different stances about this ‘new world’, humans, isolationism, etc.

Dark Alliance Sourceboo, Gate: Trickery, I tell you! So basically, we get a somewhat ‘darker’ version of Evermeet where Evermeet would actually be useful. It seems simply to me, part of the way the desert was dried out by the magic, was that the magic increased the heat, sourcebook evaporation levels, so it’s kind of like Neverwinter, a place that magic keeps unnaturally warm or hot.

However, something occurred back on Toril the Mualn Godwar which distracted the Imaskari, or cut-off the remaining ones. Also, wearing bulky but loose clothing and camels for transportation is not exclusive to arabic peoples. The Elves also had copies of the Nether scrolls, before Netheril did, and history does tend to repeat itself.
