Welcome to Christmas in July! In celebration, this digital title has been marked down by 25%! For more values, visit our Christmas in July sale page.

In 1992, TSR released FMQ1 City of Gold, by John Nephew and Jonathan Tweet.  This combination supplement and adventure brought players north of the fabled lands of Maztica to meet the Azuposi and find the aforementioned City of Gold.  The Azuposi themselves were based on the varied Pueblo Native Americans, mixed with a bit of high fantasy. 

This 100 page product is meant to be the spiritual successor of FMQ1.

What has happened to the Azuposi since it was last visited? How did they handle the Spellplague?  What has happened to all of the loose ends City of Gold left open?

Those questions are answered here, but that is by far not all. 

ANC1 The Anchôromé Campaign Guide is also meant to do for this “new” continent what the Sword Coast Adventurer’s Guide has done for Faerûn.  This is a complete campaign guide, with new classes, subclasses, backgrounds, magic,  magic items and monsters. There is even a short location based adventure that brings back one of the villains from FMQ1 who never got her due. Everything you need to run an entire campaign is here, along with plenty of room for growth. 

Anchôromé is a full continent. While there is no way one book can cover an entire continent in detail, ANC1 sure does try.  The main focus is on the Azuposi and a new race of playable beings known as the Minnenewah.  The Minnenewah blend Indigenous American legends (altered greatly, of course) with high fantasy, creating endless new opportunities for characters and adventure. 

Beyond these two races are the Metahel, a Norse-like culture who are grateful for what their Azuposi allies have taught them of the land. Then there are the inhabitants of Fort Flame who are pretty much the only influence mainland Faerûn has left on this distant land. Bolstered by their new tavranaki dragonborn allies, the humans of Fort Flame can now hold their own against threats like the creatures of Adusgi Forest and the Poscadari elves. 

There are many others, from the herb obsessed Short Folk halflings to the aarakocra of the west, who may or may not guard the last home of what remains of the aeree.  Could the Creator Race still exist in the northern mountains?  And what of the Ancient Ones and the ruins of Esh Alakar? 

There are of course the Great and Mighty Spirits here too, described in detail. Though not exactly gods, they do grant those who show them respect and beseech them spells on top of invaluable advice, often in person. 

The Thunderbird, White Bison and Red Wolf Unole are three examples of these spirits whom the Minnenewah mostly revere, while the Azuposi sing prayers to the Sun itself along with Masauwu the Skeleton Man and a ton of others. 

Hopefully, the picture painted in this 100 page volume gives a complete representation that can rival much of what exists for players in Faerun proper. Whether Anchorome is a full campaign for you, or a brief stay, everything you need both in lore and crunch can be found here.  Enjoy!

Final Note:  One of the purposes for the existence of this book is that it is meant to be a catalyst for forming a whole new collaborate region of the Realms. If you purchase this book and enjoy it, and have your own ideas for expanding what has been established, please feel free to contact me at my gmail, which is at seethe75.  I would love to see Anchorome grow, it is a playground for creativity and since it has so little “official” material, there is little to no fear of contradictions.

How much of the setting information is "timeline neutral"? I tend to run FR campaign without the spellplague, the sundering, or other major setting changes. Does a significant part of the lore and plot hooks assume the spellplague and other major 4e/5e setting changes?

That's a very good question. The guide is set post Sundering and intended to be set in the current year, however, other than to the inhabitants of Fort Flame - who are truly a minor player in the book, life has not been changed all that greatly. There are also occasional references to dragon attacks that occurred while Anchorome was part of Abeir, but they are minimal. I have left as much of the 4e era vague with the possible intention of adding an additional supplement to fill in the small gaps in the future. In short, the vast majority of this book (other than using 5e rules exclusively) is era neutral. I hope that answers your question properly.

Format
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.
