Al-Qadim Collector's Guide


Shirokinukatsukami fan
Welcome to the Al-Qadim Collector's Guide!

This is one of a series of Echohawk's D&D Collector's Guides, each of which aims to provide a comprehensive guide to D&D products published for a particular setting or era of the game. This particular guide focuses on the Al-Qadim campaign setting, which was supported (primarily) from 1992 to 1994.

Despite such a short product run, the Al-Qadim setting has more boxed sets than any other setting except the Forgotten Realms (and Mystara if all of the BECMI sets are counted). That's not bad going for a setting that didn't even have its own planet, but which was tacked on to the Forgotten Realms to keep the Kara-Tur, Maztica and Horde sub-settings company.

This was the seventh installment when the Collector's Guides were first published. The original thread for this Collector's Guide is here.
