True, but Forgotten Realms also had a ton more places filled in with infomation. Hell there are towns detailed in the realms to the point you can find out what the innkeepers name is. Thats the kind of detail that I want. As I said in my review they shouldn't have called it a campaign setting they should have called it an outline of a campaign setting or "The Inner sea fill in the blanks campaign setting"

Its a pretty book, I just wish it was more substance.

And how many books did it take to get to that detail? That level of detail does not exist in a main campaign setting book and it seems really silly to expect it in one book.

Well actually they did it in one book in 2nd edition. The 2nd edition FR handbook picked some of the main towns represented on the FR world map and detailed them. Thats all I wanted, just detail 1 town in each country, that would have been a big help.

Some Gazette's maybe on PDF to fill in the some more detail whould be great.

Well I appreciate what they are trying to do, but as an adult with a job and a life, I only have limited time to prepare weekly adventures for my group and the reason I bought the campaign setting was so I could work on the adventures, not fill in a world. It's a shame Wizards polluted the Forgotten Realms with all the 4th ed crap, that used to be a great setting..

Paizo could have had 1/2 the number of nations and fleshed the other half out more, other than the map of Nirmathas, the setting doesn't help me much......


Ok its on the map, where is the info on it? Im begining to think the Campaign setting was a waste of money.


Thanks a lot, I'll check it out.

f-ing board ate my post.

The Price of Immortality Trilogy's 1st 2 installments are set in Nirmathas. The 2nd is set in the capital city. The 1st is set in a village in Nirmathas.

also, see:

Where can I find more info on Nirmathas? I have the Inner Sea book, but it only has a couple of pages and only mentions a couple of towns. Is Nirmathas fleshed out more in some other book?

Thanks.
