Elminster's Ecologies Appendix II is an accessory for AD&D 2nd edition.
The environment includes such things as terrain, flora, fauna, weather, and natural and arcane forces. All these elements - each aspect of the environment and each organism - form a tapestry known as the ecology. And like a tapestry of cloth, this one can suffer severe damage if a single thread is removed, no matter how ugly the thread.
This appendix includes two booklets penned by friends of Elminster of Shadowdale. Collected here are:
- a 32-page booklet containing the words of the inimitable Bara, feisty druid of the High Moor, describing the ecology of that region;
- a 32-page booklet by the Lark of Suzail that gives her descriptions of the slithering inhabitants of the Serpent Hills; and
- a brief booklet of tables to aid the Dungeon Master in determining random encounters for adventurers whose travels take them through these areas.
