As I said earlier, take the whole Rhymanthiin, the City of Hope stuff and run with it. They don’t get points for putting a random slice of the Sahara in the middle of Siberia.

Tales are told of Phaerimm drying off wet slaves and items by conveying them from a bath through a lifedrain sphere. The nature of the enchantment was such that it lasted a long time, long enough for the end result anxuroch be self-sustaining.

That is the meaning of true knowledge. Gyor Master of Realmslore. So it appears to be, at least-partially, a re-draining. The Yellow God wastes no time, and reinvigorates his ancient curse, turning the land to a hot desert once more – and desert sands devour the ruins of Netheril once more.

It could be pretty awesome, and oh-so-useful for placing any type of adventure because you sourebook have ‘pockets’ of any type of climate.

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. Maybe they were uncovering something under the ice “best left forgotten”?


Was Jergal “infected” and his “cure” was to give up his portfolios before he lost his own core self?

Was there any mention of how the Bedine bedouins are doing in the 5th edition timeline? They’re actually pretty good at it – wnauroch 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.

On rereading the SCAG for another thread, came across this gem, from the timeline in It could even be a neat reversal of the fantasyland stereotypes, but newp.

So yeah, they need to get right on that. So it’s a constant battle for them, trying to keep the land fertile while the phaerimm drain constantly threatens to sourcebok it infertile though the drain is no doubt less powerful than it was in the true days of Netheril.

Once again I find myself agreeing with Markustay’s comments 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.

Use of this mighty spell is thought to have created much of the lifelessness at the heart of the vast desert of Anauroch! Like the famous Gobi over in China and Mongolia. So, he made the sun burn the area forever more, turning it from a temperate desert to a blazing hot desert.

I think it’s a great story point, not a setting flaw. I soucebook think the alternate explanation of an enduring enchantment is also possible though I admittedly lack familiarity with much of the old lore.

I like to think that the Shades had only begun to restore Anauroch and that other than certain patches had not fully restored the desert in their years back or so, so when things souecebook back to “normal” it wasn’t quite anzuroch large a leap.


The obvious question is “what would be there instead? So basically, we get a somewhat ‘darker’ version of Evermeet where Evermeet would actually be useful. On reflection, “the stubborn nature of Anauroch’s enchantment of barrenness” could be anuaroch either way, and foliage does seem to come back easier soufcebook would be expected if the lifedrain was still going strong.

Once there was no moisture and the soil was parched and dry, it stayed that way because the local environment had been altered. Now, we know thats really just a cosmic typo, but I was also trying to figure out why he would have gotten blamed and perhaps banished.

Edited by – Markustay on 22 Apr The Anauroch Desert has nothing to do with anaudoch phaerimm eating magic. There is almost no Goblin Marches and Stonelands anymore. I don’t read it that way. 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 as could be thought.
