Malatra is an obscure subsetting of the Forgotten Realms that was created by TSR for the online RPGA 's "Living Jungle" campaign. It is an Indochina-flavored region of Kara-Tur, set on a vast plateau that towers thousands of feet above dense jungle filled with masses of dinosaurs and obscured from the outside world by powerful protective magics.

Races[edit]

  • Nubari: The humans of Malatra, actually descendants of ancient Shou colonists who interbred with the true Nubari, a spelljammer-born demihuman race that was the first to settle here. Notable Nubari tribes include the Tribe of Big Chief Bagoomba (originally the Saiyama tribe, but renamed by their egocentric new chief, notable for their racially mixed makeup), the Huroola Tribe (Amazons), the Koshiva Tribe (treetop-dwelling fisherfolk), the Rudra Tribe (aggressive riverside-dwellers), the Simbara Tribe (arrogant, lion-worshipping warriors), the Wise Ones Tribe (peaceful, shaman-led weavers) and the Zantira Tribe (fisherfolk who live on floating house-boats on the Sleepy River).
