Amn mapAmn History
Amn, also known as the Merchant’s Domain, is a tremendously wealthy nation in West Faerûn. Prior to the Spellplague and the continent’s disappearance, Amn held colonies far away in Maztica. Today, it still controls important trade routes to Calimshan and Baldur’s Gate as well as colonial ports in the Moonshaes and Chult. Its population, mostly human with a large minority population of halflings, has historically been in the range of 3 million. The country’s natural resources and wealth, combined with its mercantile nature has led Amn to become one of the most important and influential trading centers throughout Faerun. The crowning jewel of this powerful state is the capital city of Athkatla, founded in 100 DR or 0 AR in official documents and often known as the “City of Coin.”
