Description Edit | History

To Ascolais, the Falling Wall and Beyond!

Once the heart of the reach of Grand Motholam, the Land of the Falling Wall and Ascolais are now picturesque ruins. The people are strange, the places stranger, the opportunities and diversions unparalleled. This double issue of The Excellent Prismatic Spray is your well-nigh irresistible invitation to discover the Dying Earth's heartlands for yourself. While waiting for Time's death rattle, why not...

  • Defraud merchants amid the probity and decorum of ruinous Lumarth
  • Lose yourself (or your pursuers) in Forrell's Port, gateway to Sousenene
  • Cross the Plain of Standing Stones
  • Hide from your enemies in cosmopolitan Efred, City of Sanctuary
  • Tangle with mermelants in Aldusfeld Village
  • Interfere with cranes in White-Walled Kaiin
  • Or take the opportunity to hunt mutroons and social status in the Great Da Forest

Ascolais and the Land of the Falling Wall features adventures, recipes, ghosts, ships, vat creatures, gods, daihaks and demons. The material is suitable for all levels of play and will satisfy every palate, however ghoulish or finicky.
