The Kalamar setting was apparently a stand alone fantasy game, now converted to 3E, but Kenzer did not do a great job of converting it to 3E. Skarrna is controlled by independent, feudal Skyrvalkkers, or battle lords, who kslamar a great amount of trade with the Reanaarians.

Things like history and personality would be great. It now sits as a wealthy confederacy, ruled by a Parliament of natives who amass a net worth of over 75, gold pieces. Not really, in scale or power, or even size it’s just one continent or so.
However, it suddenly disappears from page thrucomes back on pagedisappears again from page thru I agree with people on RPGnet that it looks like they just made a random name generator. Only minus the events of the upcoming year So ultimately, while not a bad book, it kingdoks fails as a d20 book, and as a campaign setting.

Next comes a chapter on the languages of the setting. You could cut it down to a page and a half, monsters would lingdoms about three sentences long.
I haven’t really jalamar into many of its books, but there were quite a few published adventures of varying quality and a few books that look like they may have been strictly fluff-only. The Kingdoms of Kalamar campaign setting offers a great variety of lands and cultures, each with their own unique flavor, and thus a wide variety of locations in which to base your campaign.

Dodera’s rulers have suffered from this and it is on its ninth Duke in sixteen years. The glue used for securing the maps into the book is a little too strong. The ancestors of the modern Reanaarians settled along the cost of Reanaaria Bay, forming a network of independent towns, villages, and city-states.
