What is known about the ancient aliens who visited Malatra before the Oscray? Is there any way to connect them to the Galactic Federation of Blackmoor, the Machine Race from Tale of the Comet, Expedition to Barrier Peaks or any race from Spelljammer? Or the Gods from Maztica for that matter?Big Mac wrote:It is one of the more obscure Dungeons & Dragons campaign settings.

It is hidden inside the Malatra jungle in Kara-Tur on a peninsula surrounded by ancient invisibility devices that were set up by alien spacefarers who were hoping to hide out on Toril. But those ancient aliens are gone. Inside that area is a "Lost World" jungle where people have to avoid being eaten by predators.
I was actually attracted to Malatra by some more modern aliens: the oscray. (They are refugees from the Second Unhuman War who were trying to hide from the Elven Navy and who accidentally crashed into Malatra and got marooned. The oscray are similar to the scro, from Spelljammer.)
What were they up to on Malatra?
