Although easily converted for use in any Dungeons & Dragons setting, this book is designed to be used with the Kingdoms of Kalamar campaign setting – a realistic, dynamic world where complex political alliances mix with marauding bands of humanoids, and medieval technology and culture come faces to face with magic and the fantastic. Whatever type of adventure you seek, you can find it here.
To use this campaign supplement in a Dungeons & Dragons v3.5 game, you also need a copy of the Player’s Handbook, the Dungeon Master’s Guide, and the Monster Manual. You can also find further detail on the Kingdoms of Kalamar campaign setting in the Kingdoms of Kalamar campaign setting sourcebook, the Kingdoms of Kalamar Player’s Primer and our many other fine sourcebooks and adventures.
Note: Unlike the original 272-page Kingdoms of Kalamar Player’s Guide (v3.0), the 275-page Player’s Guide to the Sovereign Lands (v3.5) PDF contains no material reprinted from other D&D sources! That’s right, this release contains over 80 pages of information that never appeared in the 3.0 version, including all five hobgoblin subraces, tons of new information on the variant classes, the new watchman class and 43 unique domains, plus new skills, feats, weapons, armor, equipment, career paths, spells, and more!
