lore – What locations do these Official Forgotten Realms inspired Magic the Gathering cards reference?

There is a Magic: the Gathering set, which has cards inspired by The Forgotten Realms, but which locations (if any) are on these land cards?

a glowing sun-like sphere in an underground grotto. Blue round crystals rise out of the surrounding sand.

Venturing beneath the desert sands, you’ve discovered an alien power pulsing with inconceivable energy.

a tornado of water with a battered ship near the top

Alarmed by the news you brought, the storm giant king of the Maelstrom has called his kin to council

a black must covered ruin underground

You expected to meet hostile drow in this ancient ruin… But they fled long ago. What darkness could have driven them out?

ruins carved out of a mountain, with clouds obscuring the ground

As you make camp near the ancient ruin, you hear the sound of drums echoing in halls no dwarf has lived in for centuries.

houses and spiralling walk ways built amongst the tops of trees

Before the elf queen will aide you, you must cure the strange rot afflicting the roots of the ancient trees


Which locations are on these land cards?

hotels – How to deal with the spider situation in exotic locations?

I hate spiders. I really, really hate spiders. It has crippled me my entire life in so many ways, and it cannot be “fixed”. I will not “go to therapy” for it. They are satanic, eight-legged monsters. Pure evil. It has nothing whatsoever to do with any fear of their potential poison or dying/getting hurt from them.

I live in a relatively cold climate. Although I consider many of the spiders even here to be way too big, they are nothing like the exotic, juicy ones found in the ever-hot, tropical areas of the world. For example, there is no way that I would ever go to Australia for any reason, or Africa. Heck, even the USA seems to have quite large and scary spiders where people live.

I have only once been to a hot country (Spanish island) on vacation, and luckily, I didn’t encounter any spiders that time. However, it was certainly on my mind the whole time. And this was a very touristy location, not exactly some remote village in the jungle or anything. I assume that it was pure luck that I didn’t find an eight-legged freak in the bathroom for the week I spent there in that hotel apartment.

I could really need a vacation to some tropical beach somewhere, with palm trees and all that. I’ve always wanted to experience that. But just the thought of being anywhere near a tropical jungle area, with gigantic spiders lurking around and probably going on a stroll on the beach sometimes, would make me unable to sit or lie down at any point, and I’d have to keep walking or at least stand up at all times. That’s not relaxing. That’s stressful and insane. It would ruin the whole experience.

How do other people deal with this problem? Isn’t spider “phobia” like one of the most common issues that people have globally? I feel sorry for those who live permanently in locations where such spiders dwell. But people pay a lot of money to go there on vacation. Am I grossly overestimating how many spiders there are? Even where I live, I barely dare to look around too closely on the balcony since there have numerous times been spiders there which I don’t even want to see. And the hotter the climate, the bigger and nastier the spiders.

I seriously believe that I would die from sheer fright if I found a tarantula climbing on me, and I would have to immediately reschedule and fly straight back home (at any cost) if I saw such a spider in-person, even outdoors.

Even if I’m never going to go on that vacation, I’m very curious as to how everyone else deals with this issue.

Why are we better than the competition?
»»»»»»»»»»»»

This is a question that you’ll undoubtedly be asking! There are lots of providers to choose from, and making an informed decision can be tricky. We’ll run through some of the reasons you should trust us with your websites!

  1. We’re a cPanel Certified Partner NOC. This is only available for web hosting providers who pass a strict vetting process and spend at least $500 every month in licenses. This gives us access to savings on licenses and priority access to cPanel technicians and developers. By signing up with us, you’re working with a trustworthy company who’ll still be around tomorrow, the next day, and the day after that!
  2. We love our customers and go a step further to deliver exceptional service. This is evident in our HostSearch and TrustPilot reviews.
  3. We’ve been in business for over SEVEN years. Our staff know the industry inside out and have lots of experience handling every aspect of it, from the deployment of orders to customer service and server maintenance to scripting.
  4. Daily Backups are included with all plans, at no extra cost. We provide 30 days’ worth of full account backups to choose from.
  5. Performance, and lots of it. That’s right! MariaDB, LiteSpeed, CloudLinux, Pure NVMe SSD Storage in RAID 10 and Intel Xeon processors make for quite the combination. Our servers are fast!
  6. The very best flexibility, at your fingertips. Have you ever signed up for a service, only to be disappointed, and unable to claim a refund? With Ethernet Servers, you won’t be disappointed, and, in the event you are, we provide a 60-day money-back guarantee, with no contracts, and no hidden fees.
  7. Web developer or not, you may find yourself needing some more advanced tools – we’ve got them. Some key features include the ability to select from PHP 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4 and 8.0, along with SSH access, PHP, Node.js, CGI, Ruby on Rails, Perl, Python, plus GIT features, and much more.
  8. Need to get a WordPress, Joomla, Magento, or Drupal site online in a hurry? No worries, our servers are equipped with Softaculous Premium, allowing these scripts, and over 300 others, to be installed in just a few clicks. It has never been quicker to get a website up and running!
  9. Your websites will be more secure when you host with us! Not only do we use CloudLinux’ “CageFS” technology to isolate each cPanel account fully, but we run daily malware scans of all files, utilize a firewall to detect and block malicious connections, meet all of cPanel’s official security checklist, and much more. Your data is in good hands!
  10. Free SSL certificates! Who doesn’t like the word free? Thanks to Let’s Encrypt, we’re able to provide our customers with unlimited SSL certificates, completely free of charge. Your websites will (optionally) show the green padlock, giving your visitors peace of mind, especially when submitting personal details, logging in, etc. You also get a boost in SEO with search engines such as Google.
  11. Our plans are instantly scalable! Our customer portal allows you to upgrade or downgrade your account instantly upon payment, whilst retaining any special offers/coupons that you may have used when initially ordering.

ProwHost Offers Shared Hosting Around the World (13 Locations) Starting at 99 Cents/Month!

Hello again, ProwHost!  We last had an offer for them on February 13, 2021.  They’re bringing us some deeply discounted shared hosting offers starting at just 99 cents per month.

  • London, UK
  • Frankfurt, Germany
  • Mumbai, India
  • Paris, France
  • Seoul, South Korea
  • Ireland
  • Tokyo, Japan
