Roads of Civilization
Roads of Civilization is an atlas published in Nimbral. In its pages are maps of Halruaa, Calimshan, Lantan, Lapaliya, Tashalar, and of course, Nimbral. It is well illustrated, with distinct political boundaries and all well known routes and paths, and some not so well known, clearly delineated. Maps of Chult are noticeably absent. Obviously, only nations that Nimbral deigns to notice are included in the atlas.
Roads of Civilization grants a DC 15 ability check for topics related to navigation, cartography, and avoiding becoming lost in and around the nations detailed. The DC may increase (+1or +2, DM’s discretion) if the check relates to finding a road or within the nations of Nimbral, Calimshan, and Halruaa.
