Manual of Mennara


Welcome to the Great Cartography sale! From now through April 29th, this digital title has been marked down by up to 20%! For more values, visit our Great Cartography sale page.

This product is designed to be a supplemental campaign guidebook and atlas for GMs using the setting of the Realms of Terrinoth. While the sourcebook (RoT) was filled with lore, this work provides concise and condensed information in an easy to reference format and includes information GMs like myself will find useful. Beautiful new (and scaled) maps are also provided, created by Roy Altman, featuring additional information about these locations.

This supplement was designed when I realized my players (who have played different games in this setting for many years) could see a group of soldiers flying a unicorn banner and know they were from Forge, but I realized this information isn't part of the sourcebook. We'd come up with questions such as, "What barony is Frostgate in?" or "just how far is Greyhaven from Vynelvale?" These kinds of questions formed the basis for this product.

This manual provides additional information such as lore-based, illustrated heraldric symbols of nations, baronies, and free cities and over two dozen color illustrations of the leaders of each. In addition, demographics, key industries, cultural details, and important locations are given within each entry, to provide GMs with plenty of adventure seeds. Many such locations go beyond the RoT book and are pulled from pre-existing lore based in Mennara, such as the heraldry of each free city, and including 2 new kingdoms and a new empire (which will eventually have its own supplement) not covered in the sourcebook! Over 40 pages of information for GMS! (and over 100 examples of original art, and over a dozen sourced artworks, including maps, heraldry, and leaders!)

Additional information includes tables for the languages of Mennara, as well as the world's currencies.

Additionally, the purchase of this product is also a license to use the images of the heraldry symbols and leaders within, in your own Foundry products at no charge.

Developed by veteran GM and self-described Terrinoth researcher Chris Markham, this is the seventh of many planned supplements for the Realms of Terrinoth setting. Roy Altman provided the beautiful maps in the product using his upcoming RPG Mapping Kit for Photoshop, available soon at - Roy also has other existing Foundry products on Drive Thru RPG. The Genesys Core Rulebook, Realms of Terrinoth setting, and either Genesys Dice or the Genesys Dice App are required to use this product.

This title was nominated for the 2020 Forge Awards (The Forge, Genesys podcast):

I've written something on the process Chris and I went through to produce the maps in this supplement:

Rule System(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
