Read Thoughts.

The doppelganger magically reads the surface thoughts of one creature within 60 feet of it. The effect can penetrate barriers, but 3 feet of wood or dirt, 2 feet of stone, 2 inches of metal, or a thin sheet of lead blocks it. While the target is in range, the doppelganger can continue reading its thoughts, as long as the doppelganger's concentration isn't broken as if concentrating on a spell.

While reading the target's mind, the doppelganger has advantage on Wisdom Insight and Charisma Deception, Intimidation, and Persuasion checks against the target.

Silent Spring by Rachel Carson

It is the wizard-king, with advice and assistance from the elders, who determines the policies of the land. A netyarch certainly recognizes the value of evaluating decisions Outlook Halruaans are a happy people who treat one another with exaggerated niceties, though they are suspicious of outsiders and always suspect strangers of trying to appropriate their magical secrets.

Eventhebasestofcommoners might be able to perform a few simple spells. Likewise, with magic so common in the culture, most people have managed to acquire at least one or two magic items. Few Halruaans develop wanderlust.

Of those that do venture beyond the mountains that shelter their home, most are simply on a quest for new and unusual spell components or devices they have never seen before. Ironically, Halruaans are loath to give 10 Races and Regions Halruaan Deities from every angle, but everyone understands that decrees handed down favor those with the gift of the Art.

Early in Halruaan history, the people likely followed a broader pantheon derived from their previous cultures—the Lapal the divinities of the jungle and yuan-ti, and the Netherese their own deities. These eventually gave way to the current divine beings worshiped in the land of wizards. The vast majority of Halruaans venerate Mystra, the deity of magic.

In fact, it is likely that the Netherese who became the Halruaans recognized the change in the divinity of magic shortly after the destruction of Mystryl. That Mystra heard and answered those ancient supplications secured the utter loyalty of mainstream Halruaa to this day. Eventually, some Halruaans began to migrate toward the worship of Savras and Azuth, recognizing a tighter focus to their own interests in their tenets.

While both churches were initially scorned, shunned, and relegated to the fringes of society, each saw in the other a long-term rival. Eventually, worship of the All-Seeing Eye all but vanished, and the Church of Azuth became widely accepted. Today one in six Halruaans worship Azuth. Sects dedicated to Savras and Velsharoon also exist in Halruaa, controlled by the church of Azuth, much as these lesser deities owe fealty to the Lord of Spells.

Those who follow the All Seeing have gained prominence of late, due to the popularity of divination and the reemergence of the chuch of Savras across Faerun, albeit subservient to the church of Azuth. These servants of the Mother of Illusionists journeyed to the distant island of Nimbral, where they remain today.

Since the Time of Troubles, the inhabitants of Nimbral have not openly acknowledged the death of Leira, although most privately suspect or admit she is truly gone.

Ironically, the traditionalists receive their spells from Cyric, who is anything but. Though it is spoken of only in whispers, and evidence of it is rarely seen, a cult of Shar is gaining ground in Halruaa. Wizards of every level of power, from rural peasant magicians to powerful elders, have secretly turned to the Shadow Weave.

Language and Literacy Halruaans almost universally speak Halruaan, which is simply a modern dialect of ancient Netherese. They employ the Draconic alphabet in their writings. Of course, no self-respecting Halruaan wizard limits herself to a single language.

The lowliest wizards learn at least one or two other languages, if for no other reason than to better facilitate trade with nearby nations.

A land of wizards is also a land of literacy. Those who cannot invoke arcane energy still learn to read and write at an early age. The Halruuans have two reasons for this basic education. Part of the preparation for these tests is learning to read and write. Literacy is quintessential to this point of personal pride. Halruaan Magic and Lore Halruaa is magic, and magic is Halruaa. Every kind of magic imaginable has been researched, perfected, and built on by Halruaan wizards.

Spells and Spellcasting While countless wizards of every school have dominated the landscape of Halruaa throughout its past, the diviner is now the slight favorite. Divination is the key to hidden information. Spellcasting Tradition: In Halruaa, wizardry of every sort is accepted, and the more the better.

Other forms of arcane magic are considered less important or unsafe. Divine spells tend to focus on divination and protection, to both learn about and guard arcane secrets and magic items.

Unique Spells: Far too many useful and wondrous spells come from Halruaa to mention here. The vast majority of new spells in this book account for but a fraction of the magic distributed from Halruaa throughout the centuries. The majority of new items described in Chapter 4 of this book, as well as countless items from other sources, originated in Halruaa.

Halruaans are a private lot, not prone to mingling with others. This keeps with their suspicious natures and belief that nonHalruaans are interested only in illicitly acquiring Halruaan magic. The wizards understand that they cannot exist in total isolation—interaction with other cultures is required for trade.

Dwarves are welcomed, provided they make themselves useful through their crafts. Halruaans know widely of gnomes only due to the intrusions of a nasty group of gnome werebeasts in the north. The occasional gnome that comes to assist dwarves in their work is grudgingly accepted. Halruaans openly dislike half-drow, and the hostile nature of the Crinti to the east is an easy testament to why.

On the other side of the country, yuan-ti occasionally become a nuisance. In both cases, the wizards have been able to handle the threat. Thetruthis,thesepeoplesurvivetheonlywaythey can, and they would rather die than be transplanted. The single biggest incursion into the Shaar came from the Shoon, but that did not last either. Despite bloody reprisals, the Imperium was forced to withdraw from the region, and the nomads quietly returned to their previous way of life.

Outlook Shaarans have a simple view on life that places little value on the long term. The most critical decisions are those revolving around survival, and to do that, the tribes must follow the herds.

Everything else is secondary, and this intrinsic understanding of the laws of the plains is what helps the typical Shaaran get by.

The nomads revere horses, the herds, other native animals of the plains, and a worthy adversary. He also values the foreigner who comes to trade.

Understanding the land and being able to coexist with it is of primary importance, and these classes are most practiced at such.

A few Shaarans become rogues, particularly those who prefer to raid settlements, caravans, and other tribes. Those with spiritual tendencies might follow the faith of a nature or hunting deity instead of becoming a druid. A Shaaran with latent arcane ability becomes an adept, bard, or sorcerer, but formal study is an alien concept to the culture. Few wizards come from Shaaryan stock, while monks and paladins are likewise rare.

Prestige Classes: A Shaaran typically becomes a Shaaryan hunter. Among those who choose to leave the grasslands, more than a few choose the path of the horizon walker.

Arms and Armor Because of the cultural blend from the formative days when the Lapal and Netherese came together, and because of their ability to craft just about anything magical, the Halruaan combatant has access to a wide variety of styles. Still, lighter armor is usually preferred to heavier gear unless some magic is available to keep the wearer from overheating.

Common Items: All arms and equipment are available in Halruaan cities.

In particular, Halruaan behirs and beguilers are popular, but any number of strange animals from every conceivable land might be acquired by the extremely wealthy. Shaaryan Society Shaaryan culture is built around the concept of the extended family, or clan. Several clans form a tribe, and the tribe lives, moves, and hunts together across a portion of the Shaar. The nomads hunt antelope, bison, boar, and elephant, all of which provide them sustenance, food, shelter, and tools.

A tribe pools its shrewdest, most trustworthy adults into a council of wise persons known as elders, and it is from this pool that the tribe selects a chieftain, by secret vote. The chieftain decides when it is time to relocate to keep up with a herd, when to switch to a new herd to avoid over-hunting one, what to do with criminals, and so forth.

Clans of people have wandered the plains for as long as history recalls, and the lifestyle of these nomads has changed little in that time. Though other cultures have periodically attempted to assimilate the Shaarans, the tribesfolk have resisted 12 Races and Regions the chieftain and the elders.

Those who cannot abide by these directives are exiled, for the tribe has no time or energy to reform miscreants. The stealing of food, horses, equipment, and even women and children is an accepted part of life on the plains.

Warring tribes are barred from the semiannual intertribal gatherings at the Council Hills. Other nomads, who revel in the hunt more than the glory of war, devote themselves to Malar, the Beastlord. Relations with Other Races Shaarans have grown used to numerous other species moving through or settling in their traditional lands, and they do not favor one over others.

Shaarans interact with other indigenous races as much as the other culture allows. They have little contact, for example, with the wild elves of the Misty Vale, but regular dealings with the gold dwarves in the Great Rift.

Shaarans detest gnolls, but have equal distaste for the yuan-ti that have begun to appear near Lake Lhespen or the Lake of Salt.

In both cases, Shaaryan nomads attack on sight and let the bodies fall where they may. Fortunately, the dragons that hunt the Shaar for food do not come often or in great numbers, for most tribes can do little about them.

The language has adapted some words from other cultures over the centuries, particularly with the coming of traders to the region.

Few Shaarans can read or write because the culture relies on an oral history. Those who have learned to scribe the Shaaran language employ the Dethek alphabet, learned from the gold dwarves in the Great Rift. Shaaryan Magic and Lore Shaaryan spellcasters are not numerous, although every tribe can count on the services of one or two arcane, and perhaps twice that many divine, spellcasters.

Usually the chieftain or a loyal elder is an adept or cleric with the ability to portend events. The tribe almost always includes several rangers who serve as scouts, as well as a druid to deal with the elements and the herds.

Spells and Spellcasting Divination magic allows a tribe to determine when is the best time to move camp, when inclement weather might threaten, and so forth.


Abjuration spells are useful for protection from attacks, the elements, and monsters. Illusion spells enhance storytelling and the presentation of oral history. Among divine spellcasters, spells that focus on nature, healing, and the elements are most useful to the nomadic culture, and druids and rangers are particularly valuable to the survival of a tribe. Shaaryan Equipment The Shaaryan people derive almost every piece of equipment they use from the land around them and the animals they hunt.

In addition to food, the herds they follow provide them with weapons, clothing, and tools.

Of course, the nomads trade for a few additional items, but such possessions are rare and wondrous by Shaaryan norms. Shaaryan Magic Items Arms and Armor Few Shaarans become skilled enough at crafting magic items to provide them for others. Would you mind checking whether the files for download are still the incorrect ones? For what it's worth, the entry in my library that leads me to this page is titled "Ravenloft Bestiary" so everything in my account except for the text on this product page thinks it's that other product.

Maybe it's just my account getting confused? That's really odd. If you don't mind checking, what do you see when you are logged out? If the page is still wrong while you are logged out, it's probably a general issue and I'll contact tech support. The picture and text on this page were always correct, it was just serving up the wrong file when I tried to download it. Looks to me like a weird thing with my acct, I'll be deleting my comments shortly.

No idea why that would happen. That's not even one of my products. Nevermind then. I'd love to make a hard copy of it for my bookshelf. If it's for private use, you are free to print one of your own.

The only logo you should be using is the DM's Guild ampersand. Companies can get very protective of their brand, so the logo alone could end up being the basis for a cease and desist. David S March 11, pm UTC This Bestiary sounds really interesting, but is there anywhere a more detailed list of the creatures included? For me it's ok that it has no many pictures included as I own alsmost all FR monsters published in the past.

Two Questions: 1.The book was released in Mythos World: Those who cannot invoke arcane energy still learn to read and write at an early age. Adding to this chaotic behavior, they 15 Races and Regions have no traditions of their own and see little value in those of others.

Smaller creatures, conditioned to the lifestyle of the nomads, are 13 Races and Regions sometimes kept as pets, but most often these are familiars to tribal spellcasters. You can help by adding to it. Plant: This type comprises vegetable creatures.
