Amarune's Almanac: Forests of the Realms

"I love books like this." - Ed Greenwood (excerpt from Foreword)

"When Arclath asked me what a forest was, I probably looked at him like he’d sprouted an extra head. Though, he posed a good question; if I’m writing this book to explain these locales to people who have never seen them, how would I explain a 'forest' to someone who’s lived in a desert wasteland for their entire life and never seen a stand of trees larger than a dozen? Saying ‘you just know what a forest is when you see it’ doesn’t work anymore."

- Amarune Whitewave

Amarune's Almanac Volume 1 is the first in a multipart series exploring the eight biomes of Dungeons & Dragons within the Forgotten Realms campaign setting.

Forests of the Realms gives an overview of Faerûn's various forests and their flora, fauna, and some history. It 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.

Contained with this 50-page tome, you'll get:

  • 2 new subclasses

    • the Circle of the Grove druid which seeks to expand on the land (forest) druid

    • and the Sylvan Sentinel, a conclave of Rangers who are blessed by the fey to guard their realms.

  • Variant rules: expansions to the Druid and Ranger classes to allow them more access to the new spells contained within this book!

  • 10 spells: each using a new spellcasting component, Environment, as they each rely on the boons of the world around them.

    • +1 bonus spell, druidic practice, which is the Druid version of the ceremony spell for Clerics.

  • 10 magic items: imbued with the power of the forest and their denizens.

  • 10 monsters: new creatures for Wild Shaping, mounts, and companions!

  • 20 flora: the bounty of the forests. Roots, trees, and flowers that you can collect and use to create all manner of items, as well as improve some spells.

  • Downtime activities: A gathering expedition specifically designed to find and collect the flora described in this book.

  • 5 location stories: Straight from the journal of Amarune Whitewave herself, stories of their expeditions into five notable Faerun forests: Adhe Wood, The Jungles of Chult, High Forest, Tangled Trees, and Yuirwood.

  • A map of Faerûn: Updated for 5th Edition, this book contains a two-page map of Faerûn covering the Sword Coast all the way to the Plains of Purple Dust

  • Also included is a separate high-resolution PDF of the map in both colored and Printer Friendly, available to print on 8.5"x11" or 11"x17"

  • Journal-style sketch art by Shiah "Cinder" Irgangladen and several other full color pieces throughout the book, combined with a field-journal document style complete with spilled ink


  • A foreword written by the creator of Forgotten Realms, Ed Greenwood, himself!

Hey, will this series be ever available in hardcover or softcover format?

Sadly, I can't answer that question at this time. Dmsguild's print on demand program has been inactive since August of last year with no news as to how it might look if and when it's reopened.

Depending on how sales go with the series, we might provide print ready files for people to print for themselves but that is just something we might consider down the road.

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.
