Realm Guide 10: The Plains of Ash

By on 10 March 2014

Once the home of the cakali, once a center of enlightenment and invention, once a green and pleasant land, the Plains of Ash is now a blasted wasteland, a testament to the unearthly might and fury of the jinn. To most it is a featureless waste, a stain on the landscape to be avoided out of fear of what might lurk there. To the cakali, it is their spiritual home, and a reminder that freedom requires sacrifices.

Inside you’ll find:

  • The origins of the cakali and more details on their practise of taking bondsmen.
  • An overview of cakali religious leanings, including details of their funerary customs.
  • Notes on the perils of walking the Plains of Ash, reasons why heroes might explore the wastes, and two adventure seeds.
  • Expanded information on the cult of Qedeshet (god of knowledge), including major festivals.
  • A new Arcane Background – Astrology magic.
  • 7 new locations, including the Ever-Burning Oasis and the Jinni’s Grave.
  • 3 notable NPCs.
  • 3 minor deities.
  • 2 new monsters and 3 hazards.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
