The Sweet Pine inn is one of the more delightful places we’ve made. A balcony overlooking a river, a room full of books, fresh eggs… I mean, I think I was doing some personal wants projections on this one. While maybe not the place for an adventure, it’s definitely a place to rest afterwards. Don’t worry, the dangers of Samsarras are coming real soon. In the interim, have yourself a rest in Sweet Pine.
The Amrin leaf comes from the Nahj Amrinitas plant that is native to the mid-northern shores of Qua’Lorn. While a few have cultivated it, most do not bother, as it grows plentiful in the wild. Many lands have outlawed it’s possession, but those that live in its native habitat need only ask the right person if they want it. One can tell an Amrin Leaf eater by their teeth.Continue reading “A Traveler’s Guide to Samsarras: The Amrin Leaf”

“A magical beggar is still a beggar.”–Carwinth Brass, Del Harun Merchant
I do not fear them, as they are simple merchants. I do, however, fear their dreams. I am almost certain that demons visit them during the night. I have heard their screams upon waking. I have seen one kill another over a slight she had suffered in a dream. They believe their nighttime visions to be real!Selid Quazar, Patriarch of house Quazar in Zan Zan Turina.
And yet… I have spoken to a Del Harun woman who knew things of me she could not possibly know. She claimed to have seen them in a dream. I am not one to be given to superstition, but what else am I to think? My stomach tightens as I remember her words and I forever await the assassins knife she foretold. Yes, I value their trade, but truly, their nocturnal journeys make it hard for me to sleep.
Del Harun claim to have ancient dragon blood in their veins. While there are none who can prove or disprove this, it is obvious to those who travel with them for any amount of time that they are not mere humans. These desert nomads ride their horses across the burning sands of Qua’Lorn, resting each night to dream. They carry what they see at night into the day.
Before all things, there was the void, the realm of Sribinet. It would become the demon realm and birth the first of its kind. Braxult, Queen of Death and Peace, would create the world below, the Isles of Samsarras. They would torture the races of their making and bask in their screams. The songs of agony floated into the heavens. Continue reading “A Traveler’s Guide to Samsarras: Samsarras.”
Perched upon a rocky outcropping over the sea, Ankhor’s Dive is a haven for the less than reputable visitors to Dane Caelen. This lively tavern and wayside inn draws an eclectic mix of dwarven sailors, human nomads, and elves doing business best not done inside the city proper. It is located on the outskirts of the city, along the northern coast. A torched lined path draws patrons in and, with luck, helps them find their way out again after imbibing fine imported dwarven spirits.Continue reading “A Traveler’s Guide to Samsarras: The Ankhor’s Dive Inn”
