Heart of the Jungle and Sargava material overlap?


Lost Omens Products


Hi. I am buying Heart of the Jungle, for use in my own campaign. I'm also interested in the Sargava book, but I'm somewhat hesitant.

I know that the Sargava book is 1) meant for players and 2) details the colonial country Sargava. But it also details adventure sites and such of the surrounding jungle. What I'm interested in knowing: is the various adventure sites and details of the surrounding jungle the same info that could be found from Heart of the Jungle? Or rather do both books cover some of the same places (with more DM appropriate detail given in HotJ)?

If I'm not interested in Sargava's culture or the cities, am I just better off not picking it up, or will there still be some unique/interesting stuff in there?

The Mwangi book doesn't step on the toes of the Sargava book much from what I've read. The portions of the Mwangi book that I wrote might reference a few locations within Sargava (IIRC like Barkskin Lake when I discuss the Bandu Hills near the border) but nothing within Sargava in much detail. Details all around and even further south past Sargava, but no major details within Sargava itself.

The books are complimentary to one another. :)


Excellent! Thanks.

Have both, they compliment each other. Little overlap. Land and regions are neighbors, some of the flora are in both.


Just grabbed both. Boy am I jazzed they are on sale before the 30th!

Question: What's with the red dots on the map in Sargava? Is that political lines, noting Sargava's territory, or what?

Yes, the dotted red line marks Sargava's borders. Everything outside of that is part of the Mwangi Expanse.
