Amarune's Almanac: Forests of the Realms

Vorpal Dice Press

I love books like this.

  • Ed Greenwood (excerpt from Foreword)

The first in a multipart series exploring the eight biomes of Dungeons & Dragons within the Forgotten Realms campaign setting.

Forests of the Realms gives an overview of Faerûn’s various forests and their flora, fauna, and some history. It does this through both narrative prose, written from the perspective of Amarune Whitewave (the great, great granddaughter of Elminster Aumar), and through occasional notes from her husband, editor, and traveling companion Arclath Delcastle.

Contained with this 50-page tome, you’ll get:


  • the Circle of the Grove druid which seeks to expand on the land (forest) druid
  • and the Sylvan Sentinel, a conclave of Rangers who are blessed by the fey to guard their realms.

Variant rules

Expansions to the Druid and Ranger classes to allow them more access to the new spells contained within this book!


10 brand new spells: each using a new spellcasting component, Environment, as they each rely on the boons of the world around them.

+1 bonus spell, druidic practice, which is the Druid version of the ceremony spell for Clerics.


10 magic items: imbued with the power of the forest and their denizens.


16 monsters: new creatures for Wild Shaping, mounts, and companions!


20 flora: the bounty of the forests. Roots, trees, and flowers that you can collect and use to create all manner of items, as well as improve some spells.

Downtime Activities!

A gathering expedition specifically designed to find and collect the flora described in this book.
