The Ivory Triangle is a 213-page sourcebook for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd edition released in May 1993.

Official synopsis[]

Nowhere are the stark contrasts that define life on Athas more dramatic than within the Ivory Triangle!

In the forests of Gulg live elite hunters called the Judaga Warriors, who claim the heads of their prey as trophies. Behind the walls of Nibenay (built with the toil of countless slaves), decadent markets promise myriad experiences to those who have the money to spend and courage to spare. Across the desolate slat flats of the Great Ivory Plain, a handful of bold merchant outposts and slave tribes struggle to exist and to exploit unwary wanderers. Amidst all, a sinister poisoner of the Tablelands plies his trade on the border between life and death. These dangers and more lie within that region called the Ivory Triangle-the ideal setting for continuing adventures on the deadly world of Athas!
