Amarune’s Almanac: Grasslands of the Realms

Learn about the grasslands of Faerûn in Grasslands of the Realms. We’ve populated these vast areas with new and old flora, fauna, and history alike. Grasslands of the Realms does this through both narrative prose, written from the perspective of Amarune Whitewave (the great, great granddaughter of Elminster Aumar), and through occasional notes from her husband, editor, and traveling companion Arclath Delcastle.

and content and a foreword written by the creator of Forgotten Realms, Ed Greenwood, himself.

From the gorgeous cover, beautiful maps, spectacular layout and use of artwork to the introductions from the father of the Forgotten Realms himself, Ed Greenwood, the well-travelled Volo and Amarune herself there are generations of love and lore for this setting so clear on the pages, before you even get into the incredible content. These Almanacs are truly works of art adding soul and soil to the setting, enriching the experience for DMs and Players alike.

Continuing this breath-takingly beautiful and professional series, Steve Fidler’s team are back with another essential almanac for those wishing to breathe more life into their Faerun. This time Amarune is trekking the Grasslands of the Realms with a wandering Druid of the Plains whose connection to the flora and fauna find them walking their own furrow between the Land and Moon, and a roving Stormchaser Ranger who can literally ride the lightning! These rambling companions share the secret of drawing new magics from the very land itself. Amarune brings five notable locations to life with her accounts, as well as her downtime spent on expeditions to gather plants. Her exploration of Faerunian flora yields a cornucopia of weird and wonderful weeds with a great variety of useful properties, as well as run ins with 11 new creatures with a wide range of before unseen species and variations on known fauna including the enchanting and tricksy Pink Zebra. Finally, Amarune shares the bounty harvested from her travails, 10 magical marvels of fields and dales covering all rarities.
