A Guide to the Cult of Black Earth: A Princes of the Apocalypse Guide


Deep beneath the earth, sinister forces conspire to threaten all of the Faerûn. Who are they, what do they want, and how do they intend to spread their power and influence through the realms? That is what this guide hopes to provide to help you run the nefarious cults of the evil elementals.

Included in this guide:

  • Motivations, and goals of the cult of Black Earth
  • Organization of their cult
  • Their operations throughout the Dessarin Valley
  • New abilities and items for them to use
  • 14 new Magic Items
  • 13 new Spells
  • 7 New Monsters and their tokens

This guide is meant to be a resource to help you run the Black Earth, make them even more challenging for your players, and develop your own side quests in the Dessarin Valley. You can also use what is in this guide to help in creating your own homebrew setting for your own elemental cult! 

Use this guide as you see fit, may the dice roll always in your favor!

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.
