Just purchased the PDF (and The Dragonborn of Kara-tur and British Raj: A Masque of the Red Death Guide to British India too). It was my birthday recently, I felt like treating myself. ;)

Sprang for the printed copy and PDF.

I do have a question (originally posted it on the DM's guild but wasn't sure that'd get answered) - there's a number of kits listed in the back that aren't described in the text (Table 6, p 79), like the Askar. I'm confused why they weren't included, even if there wasn't just a line like "use Local Hero background" or in the cases where they're actually subclasses, such as Clockwork Mage stating "see Wizard subclass".

Thank you! Enjoy!

Incidentally, I did answer your question on the site (assuming you're was the question to which I responded), but for everyone else:

The Archetypes table lists archetypes, not kits. It seems we could have been more explicit about that fact. We didn't make up anything we didn't need to, and since Askar is pretty much just a Zakharan term for a character with the Folk Hero background, we equated the Askar to a Folk Hero on the table and left it at that. We did something similar with the Sa'luk, except that one is even broader and doesn't map to a Background.

If anyone is interested in a pretty comprehensive review of the book, Jorphdan posted a video earlier today that covers it pretty well. He also had a lot of good things to say about our approach and the overall product, which is nice to hear.

The video is here:

And not to be pushy, folks, but we also have a collection of over 180 magic items and artifacts! Every item officially published for Al-Qadim, whether in the sourceboxes, Dragon and Dungeon Magazines, and the Book of Artifacts, plus lists of mundane equipment and weapons. It also includes all the items from the Complete Book of Necromancers, which was a sort of stealth Al-Qadim supplement written by the same guy who did A Dozen and One Adventures, Cities of Bone, and Ruined Kingdoms.

Just wanted to say congratulations on getting this out. It seems to be doing really well. Hopefully WotC takes notice.
Thank you!

Given the experiences some have had working and dealing with/for WotC, I'm not sure how much I'd like their attention! But we've been overwhelmed by the kind words and positivity we've seen in response to the campaign guide and our general approach, and we're very happy that people seem to be enjoying it!

Thumbs up!

Question: Does anyone know what actual Arabic word is supposed to be represented by "Zakhara"? Is it from the word for "teem" or "abound" or is it a slight mistransliteration of the Arabic for "flower" or maybe a bigger mistransliteration of "desert"?
I lived on Zahara street in Saudi. It means shinning flower. The spelling and pronunciation do not include the 'k'. Zakhara or زخاره doesn't mean anything.
