Ixinos, Island of warrior-Women is now up on the DMsGuild, by my buddy Anthony Edwards.

I did the map and the cover, and helped a lot with the lore. The map of the island is from the original one I did about a decade ago, but I 'freshened it up' for this 5e release. I am trying to complete the regional map that you see on the cover today, so you may want to wait until after the update (otherwise I can mail you that map separately). You can see a small piece of the map on the cover there. One way or another, it will be 100% complete by Black Friday.

And THAT map will be sized and match the maps I plan for my regional guides, when they start coming out, and also the regional map that will be including in something Krash is working on (so from this point on, all my maps should work together, which is something I've been working toward for a very long time now).

The Ixinos book is live now for sure; and even after the addition of the map by Markustay, an updated file notice will be sent to previous buyers.

I'm just happy to finally have it available again for public consumption!

Hmmm, I had never noticed Ixinos before. What original resources is it from? I found a thread you had here in 2008 where you were discussing ties to Akanax, and I'm headed towards there with a very much "girl power" motto (granted, it won't be Amazonian, as they'll have their men). BTW, I'm looking at the 4e map and its missing from there, and it was in the area near Akanul... did you do any involvement of it with Abeir?

EDIT: So, having noted your work around here for a while and of course Markustay as well.... figured I'd buy it. So, I can answer my own question of the above, as an initial glance looks like you didn't fill in much of any history after the spellplague?

I'd like to take this place to Abeir and bring it back and possibly reference your work after reviewing it more. In so doing, I plan on having them being introduced to the worship of Inanna. I'd have them helping "reconquer" Akanax while its on Abeir in say the last 20 years before the transfer back. This new Akanax would have humans, half-elves, half-drow, drow, wood elves, crintri, centaurs, and wemics. The worship of Ramman and Inanna would be prominent in this new Akanax, but also the Red Knight, Eilistraee, and Sehanine Moonbow (whom some see a relationship to the Untheric dream goddess Ningal, who is wife of the moon as Nanna-Sin).

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail

The material is "new" but gives no contradiction to existing canon as published by TSR/WotC at all. This particular book is 5e and the "Era of 4e" is somewhat vague in material for Ixinos. The ties to Akanax are EXCEEDINGLY tenuous and ancient...but the Ixinosan culture is decidedly ancient Chessentan/Greek.

As for the 4e Map. Like Ilighon and Wavecrest, Ixinos became part of Turmish's lands during the 4e era due to the receding waters of the Sea of Fallen Stars. It's all in there though.

EDIT: the original mention of Ixinos is in Gold and Glory under the entry for the She-Wolves Mercenary Company.

Ah, so if it stayed, then that won't work for where I was going. However, with the return of Akanax with a military culture and a prominence of both women and men warriors, I could see ties developing quickly.

Even though I worked on the regional map all day, it took a little longer than expected. I got into stuff I probably shouldn't have, but the final product will be that much better for it.

I fleshed-out Chessenta a little bit (it was way too sparse, especially around the lake). After the map is added (tomorrow morning), I plan to do a 1-page map key to be added to the book, and possibly a 'web enhancement' (can a digital book have a web enhancement? Isn't that just 'adding more stuff'? LOL), mostly because I should explain (and point-out) the non-canon bits. I have no time frame on the WE because I am not even sure how detailed I am going to make it. Considering the ties Ixinos has with Chessenta (the 'Greek' flavor), it seems fitting to have a little something about that region anyway.

I sent the regional map out to Dalor, so anyone who was kind enough to buy this product, the updated version should be available by tomorrow. Thank you for your support.

Two, actually -- there's also an Underdark one. Ed is credited in both.

Right Volume 1 and 2. I had not listed them because Ed was not credited under the "From" section, all the later volumes he was.

Plus later volumes say, "Content and a foreword written by the creator of Forgotten Realms, Ed Greenwood, himself." Where the first two say, "A foreword written by the creator of Forgotten Realms, Ed Greenwood, himself!"

I'd be happy to list them if people think that is more correct.

Hi all,

George Krashos and I just released a new product at the DMs' Guild called "Nine Jewels of Neverwinter," which you might recognize from Volo's Guide to the North.

Here's the blurb:

Learn the secrets of the Nine Jewels of Neverwinter, whose existence was first revealed by the infamous Volothamp Geddarm. Contained within are secrets of the Netherese known only to the surviving wizards of Windsong Tower, the High Mages of Silverymoon, and the ever-mysterious Manshoon. Lost since the fall of Ascalhorn, these legendary magic items might turn up anywhere in your campaign, unleashing foes long forgotten.

I've just released a product on the DMs Guild called "The Magic of Mantles" which revamps some 3E concepts I had back in the day for 5E and provides a bit of Realmslore. Here's the blurb:

"Read on to discover the magic of mantles, a legacy of fallen Netheril and the ancient elven realms of Faerűn. Train in the arcane traditions of the arcanists of Netheril, study a rare spell wielded by the mighty Simbul herself, and seek out ancient enspelled gems created by the Fair Folk.

This article showcases a new arcane tradition—the School of the Arcanist—as well as the spell mantle and a magic item known as a thaelkiira for use by PC wizards and arcane spellcasters. In addition, the article showcases new Realmslore delving into the history of this form of magic and how it might be accessed in today's Forgotten Realms."

I updated my large list post above to include all the new material, I think I got it all.

Figured people might want an update for Cyber Monday. Personally I'm going to wait till the sale is over to purchase all the new sub $5 items, our scribes deserve full compensation.
