Even though I had a copy from back in the day, I recently purchased this from the DM's Guild. I've not been able to really sit down and read it, though, so I've no input other than to say that the backstory of a dragon is always welcome.

Thanks for buying it Wooly...though I'm afraid since you already had a copy you won't get much use out of it unless you play 5e. I only put a few things new in the book.

That's the main reason I decided that it needed expanded material.

Well, I decided I wanted the newest copy, and I do believe in giving the appropriate support to folks.

Why Mystra? She doesn't seem like a deity particularly concerned with things like hunting and survival and warlike tribal stuff.

Some kind of deity more like Artemis/Diana would seem more Amazonian to me. It would be natural for a matriarchal society to prefer a female deity, perhaps Selune or perhaps even a female aspect of Malar, Talos, Tempus? Perhaps even Auril or Umberlee, if these Amazons are of the island/ocean variety?

Anyone who has purchased this product (like Wooly) - if you want the full-Res copy of the map, I can send it to you. The pdf maker doesn't do such a great job converting. Just PM me. Its exclusive to this product (I won't post it anywhere else), and even if you aren't interested in Ixinos itself, the map can prove very useful if you are running any sort of campaign set on the Sea of Fallen Stars.

And YES, I know... I need to set-up MY DMsGuild account... I keep forgetting I am going to need it soon for my own stuff.

Also, what did you do about the 4e era? Just ignore it? Because all three islands look like they were stuck together, and connected to Turmish in 4e. That's kind-of a big deal (unless we just say the maps exaggerated the damage).

There are worshipers of many of the female gods, its just that the Mages revere an Olympian aspect of Mystra.

There are 12 female goddesses worshiped by the Ixinosans...it is just that the Cult of Hekaati might intermix with the outside world more.
