Sell us your stuff? Each tale is told by Scheherazade, a beautiful young woman who reveals them night after night to a murderous king.
After a thousand and one nights have passed, she wins his heart with her stories and her life is spared. Compendikm tales of the Arabian Nights stand among the world’s greatest works of fantasy literature.
Yet this genre has been virtually untapped by the designers of fantasy games Like Scheherazade’s tales, the Al-Qadim campaign blends the real with the imagined, the natural with the supernatural, creating a unique new realm of fantasy. You are about to discover an exotic realm inspired by the tales of Sinbad, Ali Baba, and other classics from the Arabian Nights.
TSR had been guilty of recycling overlays in the past re-using the Forgotten Realms “grey vompendium Campaign set overlay in the Kara-Tur set for example. The creatures in the MC sheets: Visit spired cities, lush oases, and mysterious isles set in glittering seas. Meet sultans and sheikhs.
See genies and giants. Discover a trove of new magical treasures! Wheter your character starts from the compatible Forgotten Realms game setting or begins the journey elsewhere, this box contains everything a bold adventurer needs to explore the exotic AL-QADIM campaign world.
It is the religious and political center of Zakhara and, say its inhabitants, the most beautiful city in the entire world. But beneath the beauty lies mystery, for the court of the Grand Caliph is as full of intrigue as the Grand Bazaar is full of adventures waiting to happen.
Come, explore the delights and dangers of Huzuz the Golden, heart of the Al-Qadim campaign world. Unravel the mysteries of elemental mages, who bend flame and sand to their will! This magical tome holds a wealth of new information about Zakhara’s exotic wizards and their dazzling enchantments.
Within you’ll find new kits, from clockwork mages to spellslayers. Here too are new spells and proficiencies, plus clandestine and nefarious societies – exposed at last! These kits work best as NPCs, because most of them don’t use normal spellcasting rules, but new variations which take days, months, or even years of setup. Examples include the Mechanician, who places his spells inside clockwork automatons, or the Spellweaver, who weaves them into tapestries.
They are interesting ideas, and DMs will probably want to use them in their game as soon as they can write them up. But it’s hard to imagine a player getting excited about them. Sha’irs are not forgotten, though. There’s a large section of the book about details of the sha’ir’s gen, and a list of rituals the Sha’ir can undergo to make his gen more powerful.
This list is not all-inclusive — it encourages the player and DM to make up their own ritual if they wish to improve the Gen in a way not listed in the book.

At the end of the book is a list of new spells for Al Qadim mages. New spells are usually interesting, this being no exception. Angry genies seethe in magically-sealed bottles. Gigantic birds of prey roost atop unscalable mountain peaks. Sea serpents twist and sliter beneath blue waves. Alongside a world of stunning beauty and idyllic leisure exits a harsh realm of legendary beasts and monsters. Detailed backgrounds, perilous locations, and wondrous NPCs populate the enchanted seas.

The web of deceit and terror spun by the Everlasting weaves its way monsrous the city of Liham, entangling the PCs and leading them to the perils of the assassins’ stronghold.
Recommended for use with the Arabian Adventures rulebook. Seems to me it should go on the Campaign Book “page campaign guide describing Muluk” as the promo text says on the back of the box. The TSR coding isn’t much help And the Fate of brave adventurers is to travel the wide realms, vanquishing the unrighteous and protecting the meek. A Dozen and One Adventures leads the characters from bustling Muluk, City of Kings, to the mysterious citadel of flame, and many points between.
They may meet the king monstrohs never died, the fish-people of the Great Sea, and other wonder too amazing to mention.
