Explore Calimshan in this campaign sourcebook for the world's greatest roleplaying game

Calimshan! Land of intrigue, empire of the sands, and home to a million marvels and mysteries. It is a place where greatness and glory can be achieved by merchant, adventurer, and scholar alike. Before the first stone was laid in Waterdeep, Calimshan was already ancient. A land of genies, primordial forests, sunken cities, and a magical desert, it is unlike any other place in Faerûn.

The Calimshan Adventurer's Guide provides everything you need to create exciting adventures in this setting. Inside, you will find:

  • A guide to character creation, including new subclass options
  • An introduction to the history, geography, and culture of the land
  • An overview of the major cities and towns including Calimport, City of Glory
  • A collection of adventure seeds which can be sewn together into a level 1-20 campaign called "The Tale of the Twisted Rune"
  • New magic items, monsters, and NPCs
  • A beautiful, full-color map of Calimshan
  • And much, much, more!

Calimshan! Are you ready for your next adventure?

Could this be used with your other Calimshan book, Player Primer: Calimshan ?

I'd just like to add my voice to others. I'm not a fan of PDF format-I would absolutely purchase this in hardcover POD.

Not a criticism - I always figured the Chosen of Ilmater who led the nonviolent resistance and then disappeared was Kieren, the Chosen of Ilmater imprisoned in the Doomvault in Dead in Thay, and the reason he disappeared was, y'know, kidnapped by Red Wizards. You went a different route here, no less valid.

Does the product contain any (generic or otherwise) encounter/combat maps aesthetically appropriate for the setting? I am assuming not since the only map listed in the product description is the regional map.

M.T.B., since the Adventurers' League is sinking into a swamp with the new rules for S10... I think it would be great idea to create an organized play for Calimshan.

If I find a man with a Charisma score sufficient enough to organize the whole thing, what could be the procedure of getting your permission?

You can email me at mtblackgames@gmail.com and let me know what you are proposing. I'd love to see more Calimshan play happening, and I'm happy to support anything that is permitted by the WOTC/DMs Guild rules.

To the author, Mr (or indeed Ms) Black: as a DM planning a campaign in this setting, am I permitted to extract portions of this and provide it to my players?

Figure I'd voice my desire for a POD version of this as well. This is one of the few DM's Guild Adept products I NEED to see a POD version for! Hopefully DM's Guild starts taking on new POD items soon.

Just adding my request for a POD release (hardback please!) - the combined book for the Amn, Tethyr & Calimshan sounds fantastic! Would be great to see some of the elements from older source-books like Sandstorm & Empires of the Sands brought into the 5e era with DM tips for survival in the vast Calim desert and Tethyr wastes, as well as a detailed look at the major cities of the Southern realms. Athkatla would of course be popular with the BG2 Shadows of Amn fans (myself included) as well I'm sure and could perhaps also expand some of the popular locations from the game like Trademeet, Watcher's Keep etc. And Tethyr has had very little fleshing out over the years so would be great to see some further details of this realm brought to the modern era of the game.

I will definitely be eagerly awaiting this release and hope you can do a hardback pod - you will definitely get my money for this! Cheers

Folks have been asking about a print version of this. As some of you know, OBS are scaling down the amount of POD they are doing. This, and certain other logistical considerations, mean it's not practical to turn a book of this size into POD.

However, I do have a longer-term plan to write guides for Amn and Tethyr and then bundle all three together. Assuming that all comes to pass, that bigger book is one I would definitely want to be POD.

A Tethyr guide would be amazing! Any estimated release date on it? -please, release Tethyr before Amn :)

Just want to add my voice, a book on Amn would be amazing! It's my personal favorite setting.

I'd wish for Westgate as well, but I know things Sword Coast and Sword Coast adjacent are probably the better choices, sale-wise.. :D

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.
