The Land Is Drying Out

And Ananthians feel powerless. The golden era of humans, elves, and dwarves fades from the parched pages of history as an insatiable desert grows. But there is no bad situation that cannot be made worse. For the past three hundred years, the last kingdoms of the East have been under the dominion of a Machiavellian demon cultist-turned-lich.

Still, not all are ready to give up. From the crystal-speckled North Shore to the receding elven forests of the Southlands and from the hostage cities of the Eastern Marches to the pirate-infested Wrath Islands, there are those who won’t have it. They want back the Ananthia of song and tale in a time when hereditary titles carry little weight—and courage is in high demand.

The Ananthia Campaign Guide is a Game Supplement Designed for the Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition in the Forgotten Realms World. The creator of this 160-page campaign guide asked me to make a map of Ananthia, which was a great journey through the lands he envisioned. 

I was one of the first to see the final result and even though I’m not a dnd player myself, I absolutely loved what I saw. It’s very easy to get drawn into this world with the vivid descriptions of the various and distinctive locations. As a mapmaker, it was great to see how the map was integrated in the guidebook, showing bits and pieces of the lands throughout the book. 

If you’re up for a totally new D&D campaign with 8 sub-regions, 46 settlements, new classes, spells and monsters, then you might want to check out the official Ananthia website!
