Chronicles of Skythia
Searing temperatures ravage the desert by day and bone chilling cold at night. Fierce winds swirl endlessly, making communication near impossible and creating vicious sandstorms that can strip unprotected flesh from a body in a matter of minutes.
Swirling Flame storms erupt without warning from the shimmering sands, as the influence of the Chaos Bore spreads across the land; the intense heat turning sand to glass instantaneously and horribly killing everything in their path.
Oasis’s are rare, and more than one traveller has met his demise following a mirage. Vegetation is rare although cactus grows in places where enough soil has accumulated, these small islands of life often harbour many small creatures and thin vegetation that a clever traveller can use to their advantage.
