From publisher blurb:
In the southeast corner of Faerûn, a thousand miles south of Waterdeep on the great Trade Way road, lie three lands known collectively as the Empires of the Sands. They are harsh lands that have produced tough people—proud, fierce, and hardworking.
The Empires of the Sands are now fully detailed for your role-playing campaign. The cultures, personalities, economies, cities, towns, and wilderness are described for an AD&D campaign of any size or level. Amn, land of merchants, where everything has a price; Tethyr, where evil grows and petty tyrants vie for a vacant throne; and Calimshan, a dry land where great magic is commonplace. All are waiting for you.
This sourcebook includes all the information you need to establish an exciting campaign.
