Zakhara, also known as the Land of Fate, is a massive peninsula – really a subcontinent – far south of Faerûn in the Forgotten Realms campaign setting. It initially appeared in the early-1990s Al-Qadim setting for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd Edition, and had an intentionally short publication lifespan. Since that time, however, the setting’s popularity has led to its appearance on world maps of Toril and in various online fan communities.

Unlike TTRPG settings based on European tales, folklore, and customs, Zakhara draws its inspiration from stories in the Arabian Nights, as well as different Hollywood movies based on those stories. Zakhara is a land of dashing corsairs, stalwart desert nomads, sly viziers, and cunning sorcerers, where gleaming metropoles and ruined kingdoms await the adventurous in deep deserts and impenetrable jungles alike.
