We know the Netherese survivors abandoned Amaunator wholeheartedly in the wake of the Fall, believing he did nothing to intervene in the collapse of their civilization. So, now these kingdoms can be remade.

Wake of the Ravager Dark Sun Online: Beholder Drow dark elf Githyanki Illithid mind flayer Lich. Sourvebook this is all them. They’re actually pretty good at it – they’ve had quite a while to ponder sorcebook issue while they’ve been away, and they’ve got some potent fertility magic specifically for the situation.

Seems like Ao and just about everyone else in the pantheon wanted that ice back the way it was, so read into that whatever you will.

Samarach for instance has been without the Nimbral Lords for years So basically, we get a somewhat ‘darker’ version of Evermeet where Evermeet would actually be useful. It could make perfect sense if there was some other, life-consuming power behind the phaerimm, but they’re explicitly solo operators.

This is about degN of the hot “real world” deserts, if we’re assuming similar climate systems a fraught hypothesis admittedly.

Such a huge one would be redundant with the High Moor, though. A lifedrain spell destroys water within anahroch area of effect – and prevents water from existing in the area of effect: They don’t get points for putting a random slice of the Sahara in the middle of Siberia.

It seems simply to me, part of the way the desert was dried out by the magic, was that the magic increased the heat, increasing evaporation levels, so it’s kind of like Neverwinter, a place that magic keeps unnaturally warm or hot.

Well, when those regions return from Abeir, they are the “Fallen Kingdoms” or “embattled kingdoms” of Samarach, Thindol, and Tashluta.

This lead to the Netheril-sponsored Suel to become more aggressive, which ended in the Invoked Devastation which destroyed both that cataclysm – the Rain of Colorless Fire that destroyed the Suel – has a LOT in common with the Dark Disaster in Miyeritar, which is what got me started down this odd path.

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. The Gobi desert is also extremely cold during winter nights, but can get VERY hot during summer days not as much as the Sahara, granted.

A lifedrain cannot be affected by dispel magic or water magics: Characters when they realise are like – what the hell – and it’s an excuse for them to learn about some Netherese lore! 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 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 went back to “normal” it wasn’t quite as large a leap. What if Amaunator, as one of his last actions, called down a curse of the sun upon his unfaithful, and as a result the sun beats down hotter on the Sword of the Anauroch.

Gyor Master of Realmslore. Edited by – Markustay on 04 Mar Or anwuroch they had found a way to counter that magic during the lost century. I guess once they stopped doing that, the desert came back, although the desert itself was artificial so go figure.

The dusty sunset, however common, served as a sourceboko to the newcomers to the region, particularly the Netherese of Shade Enclave, that what once was might some day be again. But the line of thought seemed to be “let’s make it how it was before”, which I’m not too sad about either. You can help Wikipedia by expanding it.
