Plants and Fungi of the Realms


For 5th Edition Dungeons and Dragons.

The Forgotten Realms setting is vast, and there is an abundance of flora that is native to the setting. Druids and rangers may find useful applications of what they find within these pages, and rogues may learn of new poisons by which to end their foes.

Within these pages you will find:

-Over 100 plants and fungi for the Forgotten Realms setting, some taken from previously published sources, but the majority are new additions to the expansive world of Toril.

- This supplement contains previously published material from “Elminster’s Ecologies (Explorer’s Manual)”, Dungeon Magazine, Dragon Magazine, “Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting”, “Magic of Faerûn”, “Volo’s Guides", the Maztica setting, the Kara-Tur setting, and many other sourcebooks.

-A plethora of poisons, alcohols, and herbs to spice up your campaigns and equip your characters.

-New Optional Rules on crafting poisons and brewing alcohol, including rules on how to adjust crafting time.

-A number of interesting quest ideas to spur your imagination.

I asked Ed Greenwood about some of the plants DnD put up about the Forgotten Realms...
his reply was that the ones added in dungeon/dragon magazines were created and added by the company that owned the magazine, not him.

my question is, how many of these plants are from "legit" Ed Greenwood sources? Love the book...but I wonder... <.<

I wonder why there is no mention of "Wolfsbane" here (cures lycanthropy, it seems).
Also, 31 pages, almost 40MB. This is my first purchase and I wonder if this is normal.

Hey! I absolutely love your guide, the plants and fungi are fantastic and the herbalism system works wonderfully! I was wondering if I could use some of the material from your guide in a compilation of fantasy plants I'm working on? I already purchased the PDF to look through and use in my own campaigns, but would it be okay to add to the compilation? I'd absolutely give you credit and mention that they can buy your guide to anyone I share it with.

Would that be alright?

I unfortunately cannot give you permission, as some of the entries are from Forgotten Realms source materials. However, if you're still looking for a collaborator, I'm down.

Loved it, it is almost perfect for my current campaign! I agree with both reviewers and think that this piece requires a little bit more work, including area/climate index (I had to make one myself for my campaign). The only complaint I really have is that there is no printer-friendly version, unfortunately. Would love it if you'd add it!

$2 for a book on PLANTS is too much.

I would delete this, but I can't.

If they were just static descriptions of plants, I would tend to agree with you. However, the plants included all have interesting properties, not to mention the poisons and other uses.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
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.
