This product includes details on the history and locations of both Anauria in its time as a Netherese Enclave during the height of ancient Netheril, as well as its time following the Fall of Netheri. It also includes short ideas for running adventures set in Anauria, and one new spell for 5e.

"The year was 3520 in Netheril Years. By the currently used calendar, it was 339 years prior to the erection of the standing stone, or the year -339 DR. The empire of Netheril was at its peak of power, when suddenly, a disaster of epic proportions occurred as the floating cities and enclaves, high above among the clouds, came crashing down as the magic that was holding them up there simply ceased.

Karsus, the mightiest of all the Arcanists of Netheril, had cast his most powerful spell, stealing the divine essence of Mystryl herself. His folly, however, was costly, as he couldn’t handle the sudden rush of godly power. Unable to control the Weave, all magic ceased to function. Every flying city situated thousands of feet in the air in the empire of Netheril came crashing down from the skies to the land below, annihilating the vast majority of its people.

Three of these floating cities, however, landed safely, for they were so high up in the air that, when Mystryl reincarnated herself as Mystra following the theft of her divinity, she had time to use her powers to land them safely with minimal casualties.

One of these was not only saved due to its latitude, but also, because of the respect its resident Arcanists and ruling Archwizards had for the weave; this being the floating enclave of Anauria."

Thanks for the review.
I have found my original document so I was able to edit it from there to give it the better formatting that it needed (I created this back in 2007 originally for 3.5E as a project initially for the Candlekeep Compendium, which never made it in there)
I also eliminated the unnecessary blank page and put the map back into it.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
