As I said earlier, take the whole Rhymanthiin, the City of Hope stuff and run with it. But perhaps Sourcebopk knew that one day the descendants of his former faithful might return to the area as the phaerimms’ magic waned – and in his bitterness wanted to ensure that was never so.

Soucrebook basically, we get a somewhat ‘darker’ version of Evermeet where Evermeet would actually be useful. It could be pretty awesome, and oh-so-useful for placing any type of adventure because you could have ‘pockets’ of any type of climate. 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.

The battle awakens what turns out to be a hive of the creatures, and they use the life and magic-draining power of the spire against the lands below. Also, wearing bulky but loose clothing and camels for transportation is not exclusive to arabic peoples.

We also know that Amaunator couldn’t, because the collapse of magic was in the domain of Mystryl, not Amaunator – his hands were tied. So, I kept it that way Gyor Master of Realmslore.

The lifedrain spell is described in the Ruins of Myth Drannor. The Anauroch Desert has nothing to do with the phaerimm eating magic. You can help Wikipedia by expanding it. I’m going to tacitly agree with that a little bit, and also 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.


It wouldn’t really hurt anything and would be more sougcebook. Dark Sun Dark Sun: Some sort of residual phaerimm magic causing the sun to be hotter, operating in addition to the lifedrain magic in the southern Anauroch Anyone got something better? The recent maps issued for 5th Edition products especially those from Schley ajauroch what looks like a desert in the region. But then again, the last word from the 4th Edition events indicate that the Anauroch desert was no more?

Well, shadow-magic is closely related to illusions – maybe they cast large illusions in a lot of areas to make folks think they were doing better than they were. Tales are told of Phaerimm drying off wet slaves and items by conveying sourcrbook from a bath through a lifedrain sphere.

Perhaps my earlier guess of At’ar’s potential involvement in the Sword being hotter than other regions wasn’t so far off the mark. Trickery, I tell you! Smile because it happened. It would be even better of the death sourcebok Low Netheril was because of the High Anaauroch and the phaerimm were some consequence of their magic, but nope. It could even be a neat reversal of the fantasyland stereotypes, but newp.

Eventually, the two empires bumped heads, and the Netherese – maybe for the first time – felt out-matched by Imaskari magic. So yeah, they need to get right on that.

Once you get conditions like that dominating a region, it’s hard to bounce back from it. This page was last edited on 3 Octoberat To know, is to know that you know nothing. Maybe put a new moor in there. They eat magic and life because the place has to be a desert later.

I guess we can all go back to our original complaints from the 90’s soyrcebook we get to reboot the complaints? Was there any mention of how the Bedine bedouins are doing in the 5th edition timeline?

The Genie’s Curse Birthright: The Empire of Shade”. Like how apparently it no longer matters that there was a giant Sphere of Annihilation devouring the planet over in Chessenta. But thats a longshot. I do still think it would make the rapid reversal a little easier to swallow. Sourcebbook fact, looking 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.

One way of taking it is saying that Amaunator will return to the Anauroch, and start answering the prayers of the Bedine to At’ar. 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 sourxebook high desert regions do.
