This vintage tome (rules are AD&D 2nd edition) is set in the Kingdoms
of Kalamar campaign setting, in Whimdol Bay on the southern shores of the
Elos Desert. However, the rules material is sufficiently adaptable that the
GameMaster can simply drop this material into any campaign world with virtually
no alterations. Use it with any fantasy role-playing game and enjoy!
