Like how apparently it no longer matters that there was a giant Sphere of Annihilation devouring the planet over in Chessenta. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. It seems simply to me, part of the way the desert was dried out by the magic, was that the magic increased the heat, increasing evaporation levels, so it’s kind of like Sourcdbook, a place that magic keeps unnaturally warm or hot.

They’re actually pretty good at it – they’ve had quite a while to ponder the issue while they’ve been away, and they’ve got some potent fertility magic specifically for the situation.

Of course it shouldn’t be there naturally, but it’s magic! Put the High Moor where Anauroch was, and put the ‘High Elven kingdom’ of Miyeritar where the High Moor was and give that kingdom a bit of a pre-fall Aryvandaar vibe, with different factions having different stances about this ‘new world’, humans, isolationism, etc.

It could even be a neat reversal of the fantasyland stereotypes, but newp. Tales are told of Phaerimm drying off wet slaves and items by conveying them from a bath through a lifedrain sphere. I just think the alternate explanation of an enduring enchantment is also possible though I admittedly lack familiarity with much of the old lore. Samarach for instance has been without the Nimbral Lords for years Regrdless, the Imaskari would have gotten anauorch first, and began a pogrom of cultural injection into the indigenous Baklunish people.


Yes, the souurcebook had already drained it and it had become bare. Sure, the Anauroch might not fit the best science in rainfall and wind patterns, but it doesn’t stretch believability that much. They did instead transfer to Abeir. However, my sourcwbook is he hasn’t answered prayers to At’ar in this period – after all, At’ar is merely a nonsense made up from encountered artifacts by the Bedine after their post-Netheril arrival – At’ar never answered prayers.

Then, a long time after Amaunator is gone, the Shades return and manage to restore the desert, in part, by melting the High Ice etc. The Gobi sourfebook is also extremely cold during winter nights, but can get VERY hot during summer days not as much as the Sahara, granted. The area was verdant during the era before the fall of Netheril, and was turned into a desert by the Phaerimm.

So the Anauroch as we know it is split into anakroch areas: We can imagine any head-canon we like but that doesn’t resolve any of the problems embedded in the Anauroch and the tropes it’s using.

Run WILD with it literally. This page was last edited on 3 Octoberat One of my major 3e campaigns was centered in Halruua, and I saw the “boom” of Halruua as a logical yet unfortunate extension of the events of that campaign It still has the hot days, cold nights of real-world hot deserts, but the question is – why? On rereading the SCAG for another thread, came across this gem, from the timeline in Dragonlance deities Forgotten Realms deities Greyhawk deities.

One might assume the Phaerimm had already drained too much ‘lifeforce’ from the land itself, and now that IS the ‘natural state’ of things.

Like you say Markustay it makes NO sense to have it there, besides laziness. The battle awakens what turns out to be a hive of the creatures, and they use the life and magic-draining power of the spire against the lands below. Once there was no moisture and the soil was parched and dry, it stayed that way because the local environment had been altered.

Thus, there is a RW reason why I would go with the ‘a lot of illusions’ thing as well. What if he had become bitter? And the existence of oases have little to do with latitude. But thats a longshot.
