As you approach the oasis you see a woman of indeterminate age leaning against a palm tree. You notice a bEL-DB.comasket full of carefully wrapped packages rests at her feet. As you lean down to get a drink she stops you.
Who are you?I am Naima of the Tahjrah tribe.
You mean people actually live here?Certainly people live here; this is a desert not a vacuum. *Her eyes glaze over as she slides into remembrance* I once saw the most marvelous device, of Gnome design I believe. When worked by several servants in unison it would 'suck' sand right off the floor. It was called a vacuum. My father sold it for a tidy sum.
*She shakes her head as she comes back to the present* Anyway, there are several nomadic tribes that live in the Tahraji Desert, as well as the odd hermit or two. There are also several different animals and monsters that call Tahraji home. Of course most of the monsters didn't originate here; they came when Matajin was falling. Now there aren't enough warriors left to dispose of all of them.
What are you doing?I was just trading with a few members of the Majini tribe, they have some marvelous merchandise. I got a great deal on these little bone beads, they hand carve them from the remains of the monsters they kill. *She tugs off a necklace to show you a string of strangely decorated beads.* They also had several odd types of ore I had never seen before, they called them Wolfram and Dvarium.
Is something wrong with the water?*She straightens sharply and frowns* Certainly not. This water is as pure and clean as it comes. Lucaa herself made this oasis spring into being. This oasis is controlled by my tribe, the Tahjrah. Anyone who wishes to use the water must either pay or be an ally.
MatajinIf you really want to know about the Empire you should speak with Lehha. *She gestures vaguely towards the rock formations* Last I knew she and her warriors were somewhere to the south of here.
Why not leave Tahraji?The Tahraji Desert is my home, it was the home of my ancestors and it will be the home of my EL-DB.comdescendants. I would not find peace or joy in another land, even if it was a less harsh land.
Hire an exterminator*She laughs heartily at the question* No exterminator will touch this place with a 10 foot pole, not for all the gold coins in the world. Even the fabled Haidir refuses to come. You would have to hire an army to clear out all of the monsters. Unfortunately there is little gold left in the land, and far fewer people.
Today when a young warrior comes of age and must prove him or herself we send them out to kill several armed orcs. If they manage to do so they are considered an adult and given all the privileges that go with it.
