Nashaki Development

The Reader of the Sands
"Desert Wanderer", "Mad Fortune Teller", "Hotlands Hermit", "Qui'aya Crackpot", "Storm Chaser"...These titles, and many more, are used to describe this nomad of the Hotlands. He travels this scorching region, imparting enigmatic destinies to those he encounters. He does not wait to be asked for these visions, sometimes accosting travelers as if the fate of the world hinges upon his relaying of some obscure event to someone that knows nothing of it; other times ignoring those who come begging for any word of their future, however dire.

Seemingly young, if one can get a clear look in his eyes, it may seem as if the history of ages lies graven on his slate blue irises. And only then do generations of Idalos' secrets start to show in the lines of his face. Upon the declaring of some fate, the lines fade and an easy calm returns to make him seem at peace once again. But most often, the cryptic nature of his pronouncements then bring these same lines of worry to those who receive them.

Though it is not known to more than a handful of beings that walk the world, The Reader of the Sands is the mortalborn son of Ziell, the Immortal of Prophecy; and this domain is perhaps even more focused in the son than the father. Though why a son of Winter would seek existence in the hottest zone on Idalos is just one more oddity surrounding this figure. Perhaps he does not want parental surveillance. Perhaps he wishes to distance himself for Ziell's sake. Perhaps he wishes to endure the madness his visions bring him, rather than impart the destinies that truth demand to those fearing to hear them.

Though he carries a book with him wherever he goes, none who hear his revelations ever see it. It is only those who see him in passing that make mention of a book, and often they recall having seen him writing in it. Many would love to see what is written there. If they did, they would find handwritten accounts of events from hundreds of years ago, all penned in the same hand; evidence of arcs far beyond the life span of the average mortal.

Why this use of his aspect of prophecy, as a mortalborn, has not sped his demise, is probably attributed to his use of the drug Brain Storm to empower his ability, rather than the pure expenditure of his divine power. This is the reason he follows the mystical sandstorms called 'Qui'aya' to gather the required elements to produce the drug. Those seeking to encounter him will have the greatest success watching for signs of an approaching Qui'aya and looking for a figure following it.

Of course, this strategy is fraught with hazards of its own.

Nashaki Development

Nashaki Development
Name: Ivera Renalla
Created by: Uiyaejn
Race: Human
Age: 38
Born: 378
Title: Lead Military Medic at the Border Fortress
Skills: Medicine 85, Surgery 93, Herbalism 90, Leadership 30, Posion 81
Other Information:Known for her steady hand and vast knowledge of medicine Ivera spent most of her early years studying the anatomy of living things by cutting them open, experimenting with both physical and herbal solutions to medical procedures. Even more importantly she looked the the knowledge of her predecessors. Born into a moderately wealthy family she thrived on her diligence and fascination of he way bodies work. Although many stay away from her because of her intense focus and strange fascinations, she always performs well and rarely cracks under pressure.

Leading the Legion's Medics with an Iron Fist, she is thorough with her expectations as well as her teaching. A mistake or lack of knowledge could lead to a patient's death and thus will not excuse idle behaviour or lack of attention to detail.

Nashaki Development

Hotlands Claypan
Image
This stretch of water in the desert is an empty claypan most of the arc, but during Cylus it is full to the brim with fresh rain water, ferns, shrubs, and small palmtrees grown around the edge and die back during the hotter seasons. The water is usually drained by people and animals by the end of Ymiden, though also catches the odd shower leading up to the season of Cylus. The flax that grows around the clapan is a very hardy material that is gathered and dried once an arc in Ashan to use for crafting, weaving, or making other materials. Those who live nearby often use the claypan for farming eels that are later harvested and the meat cured and stored in order to see them through the hot cycle.

Nashaki Development

The Gilded Hand
Image
Said to dwell at the centre of the desert, the Gilded Hand is believed to mark the place of a fallen warrior, long lost to history. The thumb points directly in the direction of the city of Nashaki, and has saved the lives of many a lost traveler. Leaving gold on or around the statue brings good luck (one off +10 fame), and bad luck to those who take from it (one off -10).

Slavers Corridor
Image
Slavers Corridor is located south of the City of Nashaki within an area of secluded land, walled off by high cliffs which protect the canyon below from the harsh desert conditions, including the fierce heat of the noonday sun, common sandstorms, and stray, dangerous hotland beasts. Slavers call this canyon home and outsiders from the city and all across Idalos come here to trade on the third day of every season, making camp within the safety of the cliffs. The floor of the canyon is thick with green trees, uncommon in most parts of the Hotlands, and herd animal tracks, the vegetation here attracting many different types of wildlife, including wild desert horses, goats, and cattle.

Nashaki Development

Rakshar
Name: Rakshar
Created by: Uiyaejn
Race: Raskitheical
Age: 44
Born: Arc 672, Zi'da
Title: Legion Soldier
Skills: Endurance (32), Melee Combat (43), Storytelling (17)
Other Information: An old tired soul robbed of its joy, he is a calm and collected soul that has had many friends who have died in battle and goes through life fighting for his people, for the legion. With nothing left to lose but the hopes of the young, Rakshar is well respected among his peers for being both dangerous and broken.
Mi'lyn
Name: Mi'lyn
Created by: Uiyaejn
Race: Human
Age: 33
Born: Arc 683 Saun
Title: Legion Doctor
Skills: Surgery (50), Medicine (26), Leadership (15), Herbalism (9)
Other Information: One of the several doctors within the legion, Mi'lyn is recognised for her skills in surgery and potential for leadership. Although decent with medicines, she often seeks assistance from highers-up such as Ivera, to ensure that her analysis is correct. An ambitious and striving perfectionist, Mi'lyn is very serious about her job and is very rarely seen smiling. Among the doctors of the legion, people very rarely mention her scar. There are many rumours surrounding what happened to Mi'lyn that she chooses not to indulge.
Rhyth Flower
Name: Rhyth Flower
Frequency: Uncommon in the wild, however there have been a few ambitious enough to make a Rhyth farm for mercenary value.
Toxicity/Hazard: When cracked the stem releases a toxin that if not careful makes most humanoid creatures nauseous and can potentially hurt small animals, the flower itself is harmless.
Appearance: A small red flower with a white centre and glows underneath the moonlight.
Properties: In medicine this plant has uses for battling against minor infection or fevers. It can also sometimes used as romantic lighting, because of the petals glow these flowers are popular for romantic occasions.
Other Information: Scattered across the dessert in what little terrain it can find to grow on, this flower thrives by living off of other plants. It loves sunlight and needs very little water to survive and blooms throughout the warmer months of the year. Thanks to it's moonlit glow this flower is sometimes known as the red star of the desert, once made by the immortals to guide lost travellers through darkness. Hard to farm because of their random nature, the few who have had the dedication toward it have been able to create thriving business off of this flower.
LakiLaki Bush
Name: Lakilaki Bush
Frequency: Uncommon, Desert
Toxicity/Hazard: Do not feed to horses, as it makes them sick. Not harmful to humans.
Appearance: A bush-like shrub with vibrant green leaves, the plant often looks appetizing toward herbivorous animals.
Properties: Although dangerous to animals, the lactose-like chemicals this plant releases are usually okay for humanoid creatures, unless they have an abnormal intolerance to such things. In medicine, it is often used to reduce swelling and alternatively as a formula mixed with water to feed newborn children if there is a lack of milk in supply. This bush can also be a source of water for passing travelers if they are willing to dig far enough.
Other Information: Found in the more sandy area of the desert, this bush is difficult to farm. Because of its solitary nature, it likes open spaces and will not often be seen in places of thriving plant life. It loves the heat and survives throughout the year by absorbing and storing rain water in small pockets of tissue beneath the ground which can be kept for cycles on end.

Nashaki Development

The Waterhole Corral
 
Image
Often nicknamed the "Watering Hole" by the locals. Located just within the high walls of Nashaki, in the outskirts it's easy to spot upon first entry to the city and pertains to all of the city's stabling and riding requirements. The Corral premises consist of a collection of several buildings and two large open, fenced pens for training and breaking their mounts. The series of sheds, stables and huts are built from a mixture of stone, mud and wood. All of the buildings emanate an old, rustic feel, with low ceilings to reflect the Corral's social standing within Nashaki culture.

With two large, spacious stabling barns the Corral has the capacity to facilitate a copious number of mounts. Inside each barn, a grand open room houses stalls, upon stalls kitted out with a multitude of feeding troughs and water containers for all kinds of mounts' needs. The floor is often dirty, covered in hay and scat, so one must be cautious where they step.

The biggest in the collection of sheds, is the Equipment shack and it is here all business dealings with the Stables is conducted. As one steps inside the low ceilinged shack, they will notice a bench blocks their path, lining across the expanse of the giant one roomed building. Stationed behind the pew stands a young woman, Iris, messing with a bunch of papers and a small collection of coin, her work sprawled out over the wooden counter. Behind her, shelves nearly as tall as the ceiling, stretch far back into the depth of the shed. The crooked looking shelves adorning all kinds of gear, supplies and grooming equipment one would ever need.

If you have any business with the stables Iris is always stationed behind the pew and she will deal with your transactions. If you'd prefer instead to deal with the owner, Seb'ma can be found teaching in the training grounds around to the back of the small complex.

Owner

Image
Name: Seb'ma
Race: Qi'ora
Date of Birth: 76th Ashan 684
Job Role: Owner / Riding Teacher
Skills: Animal Husbandry 60, Animal Training 55, Appraisal 34, Mount 65, Business Management 40, Leadership 30, Mathematics 25, Teaching 52,
Appearance: Skin as dark as coffee, Seb'ma often adorns a loose, flowy blouse and silken bohemian style pants.
Personality: Seb'ma is a woman who is always grinning. Her voice is deep, husky and she is very direct when she speaks, not one for idle chitchat. Preferring to get her hands dirty and work with the animals she breeds and keeps, Seb'ma teaches Riding for beginners up to Expert. A bit of a mama-bird, she is naturally drawn to taking her students under her wing in more ways than just what her lessons teach. Wise and soulful, she has a soothing aura about her.

Receptionist

Image
Name: Iris
Race: Sev'ryn
Date of Birth: 40th Saun 687
Job Role: Accountant / Receptionist
Skills: Animal Husbandry 24, Appraisal 32, Business Management 55, Intelligence 39, Logistics 49, Mathematics 50, Mount 35, Writing 26
Appearance: Iris is nature's canvas and is decorated in a wide variety of tattoos all over her body. Long, wavy hair is a spectacle of browns and auburns mixed together.
Personality: With a natural affinity for numbers, Iris fell under Seb'ma's apprenticeship with the dream to one day run her own business. However as the pair's relationship developed into something more than just friendship, she remained at the Watering Hole, taking care of the actual running of the business.

Stable Hand

Image
Name: Ben
Race: Yludih
Date of Birth: 17th of Vhalar 692
Job Role: Stable Hand / Husbandry Teacher
Skills: Animal Husbandry 65, Animal Training 55, Deception 28, Disguise 26, Mount 45, Medicine 26, Surgery 15, Teaching 50
Appearance: Ben is currently disguising himself in the form of a human in his mid-twenties. With sandy hair, bleached by the Hotland Sun, he always adorns a couple of days stubble. His hands are calloused and rough and his muscular frame is covered in a plaid shirt and brown pants.
Personality: Shy, quiet, secretive, Ben had originally intended to train to become a doctor in Korlasir. However his idenity as a Yludih was discovered and he swiftly made his escape to Nashaki. Instead opting to work away from people, Ben joined the Water Hole family originally as just a stable hand. Seb'ma, though, always encouraging him to break out of his shell, inspired him into caring for the mounts and gradually coaxed him into agreeing to teach his husbandry skills to others. He is a gentle soul, with a hard time being assertive.

Breeder

Image
Name: Boon
Race: Qi'ora x Human Mix
Date of Birth: 26th Zi'da 687
Job Role: Stable Breeder
Skills: Animal Husbandry 67, Animal Training 65, Mount 40, Medicine 55, Surgery 62, Leadership 30, Teaching 34
Appearance: Long whispy hair flows to his slender shoulders. Boon is never seen without his top hat, the prized possession having belonged to his deceased brother. A plain white tee adorns his skinny frame, with a light grey overcoat over the top and black leather pants.
Personality: Seb'ma's nephew, Boon is the jester and practical joker of the Water Hole family. He has an issue with adhering to people's personal boundaries and is very rarely serious. Although when it comes to his animals, be forewarned of his temper. No one is to interfere with his breeds and quite prideful of his work, he doesn't take too kindly to critique.

Horses

 
 
Image

Brief: They are noted for their vigorous, excitable and restless temperament so can be a struggle to control. They have a refined head with a predominantly straight or slightly convex profile and long ears. The mane and tail are usually sparse. The long back is lightly muscled, and is coupled to a flat croup and long, upright neck.
Abilities: Via their elongated ears, the Apanie possess a "sixth-sense" when it comes to detecting predators and enemies. Veterinarians believe the Apanie listens out for their foes by the vibrations in the air.
Size: 14.2 to 16 hh
Pallet (colour): Buckskin, palomino, bay, black, chestnut, and grey with a natural metallic sheen to their coat
Purpose: Riding, Show Jumping, Scouting, Hunting

Pallet (colour): Usually chestnut or gray
Purpose: Short burst Riding, Packing
Stock: Moderately Common
Price: 70gn
Image

Size: 14.1 to 15.1 hh
Pallet (colour): Usually bay, gray, chestnut, black and roan.
Purpose: Riding, Show Jumping, Dressing
Stock: Moderately Rare
Price: 90gn
Image
Namib:


Brief: The Namib are one of the native wild horse breeds of the Hotlands. Feral and spirited it takes immense training to break these horses; though once you do, they become the fiercest of all mounts. They are athletic, muscular, clean-limbed and strong boned. They are short-backed with oblique shoulders, good withers and overall, they have good conformation.
Abilities: Their coat is an odd combination of tough hide and a semi-permeable membrane. Their skin is hard to cut, though it is breathable to allow the Namib a tremendous resistance to the scorching climates of the Hotlands.
Size: 14 to 14.3 hh
Pallet (colour): Usually bay, chestnut or dun
Purpose: Riding, Packing, Racing, Combative
Stock: Rare
Price: 100gn
Image
Katura:


Brief: Their coats are ridiculously short and strangely smooth, etched with odd markings. Though the animal bears ridges and “rosettes” upon its face and ankles, where the fur is slightly longer. Great care must be taken to keep the coat clean and free of dirt. Commonly of a gentle, willing and able temperament, they make for the perfect work mount.
Abilities: The Katura sleeps for the better part of the day outside, beneath the excruciating heat of the sun. As it sleeps the Katura churns the power of the Sun's rays during the day into energy, through its luminescent coat. At night, the mount's coat "glows" allowing the animal to work throughout the night and to light the way for its rider.
Size: average 13.3 hh
Pallet (colour): Predominantly white, though can be dun and grey.
Purpose: Farming, Riding, Packing, Drafting, Search and Rescue
Stock: Extremely Rare
Price: 120gn
Image
Hotlands Thorned:


Brief: The Thorned Horse is tall, thin and covered in thorns. It also has a long tail that retracts and splays like a fan to shield itself from the sun. It is the oldest breed of horse in Idalos. They were selectively bred for certain traits such as actively cooperate with their rider, to be high spirited and alert and to survive the heat of the Hot Lands.
Abilities: They are well suited for desert travel allowing them to survive weeks without food or water. Their body is made up of a layer of rubbery skin which contains an insulated layer of fatty deposits. The skin has small thorns throughout that limit evaporation from the horse's body - allowing them to retain fluids from escaping. Their eyes, nose and internal organs are adapted to be protected from dust and to reduce water loss. Finally and most uniquely, their tail can fan out to form a canopy above, protecting it and the rider from the searing suns above.
Size: 15 to 17.3 hh
Pallet (colour): Unknown
Purpose: Riding, Packing, Combative, Drafting
Stock: Extremely Rare
Price: 150gn

Stock: Common
Price: 55gn

NB: Camel vs Horse

Poko

 
 
Image
Males Only:


Brief: Insect Desert Land Mount, with some water capability. Ideal Pack mount. Not only is their gait smooth, and their back wide and flat, they can carry 3/4 ton, or drag two with a wagon on flat land. The Po'Kropola'ax is like a 4-segment centipede, with an ant-type head. It has alternating sets of legs; one set jointed high above its back, the other firmly supportive underneath, as well as the specialized front and back sets. The Poko is not an aggressive insect, though, if provoked enough it will flip and attack. While not truly "loyal", they are cooperative. This has the drawback of making them easily led away by an enemy.
Size: 8 to 12 feet long, with the rider sitting 3ft up.
Purpose: Riding, Packing
Stock: Somewhat Rare
Price: 150gn

[align=justify][indent=30]Often nicknamed the "Watering Hole" by the locals. Located just within the high walls of Nashaki, in the outskirts it's easy to spot upon first entry to the city and pertains to all of the city's stabling and riding requirements. The Corral premises consist of a collection of several buildings and two large open, fenced pens for training and breaking their mounts. The series of sheds, stables and huts are built from a mixture of stone, mud and wood. All of the buildings emanate an old, rustic feel, with low ceilings to reflect the Corral's social standing within Nashaki culture.

[indent=30]With two large, spacious stabling barns the Corral has the capacity to facilitate a copious number of mounts. Inside each barn, a grand open room houses stalls, upon stalls kitted out with a multitude of feeding troughs and water containers for all kinds of mounts' needs. The floor is often dirty, covered in hay and scat, so one must be cautious where they step. 

[indent=30]The biggest in the collection of sheds, is the Equipment shack and it is here all business dealings with the Stables is conducted. As one steps inside the low ceilinged shack, they will notice a bench blocks their path, lining across the expanse of the giant one roomed building. Stationed behind the pew stands a young woman, Iris, messing with a bunch of papers and a small collection of coin, her work sprawled out over the wooden counter. Behind her, shelves nearly as tall as the ceiling, stretch far back into the depth of the shed. The crooked looking shelves adorning all kinds of gear, supplies and grooming equipment one would ever need.

[indent=30]If you have any business with the stables Iris is always stationed behind the pew and she will deal with your transactions. If you'd prefer instead to deal with the owner, Seb'ma can be found teaching in the training grounds around to the back of the small complex.[/align]

A bit of a mama-bird, she is naturally drawn to taking her students under her wing in more ways than just what her lessons teach. Wise and soulful, she has a soothing aura about her.

[b]Personality:[/b] Shy, quiet, secretive, Ben had originally intended to train to become a doctor in Korlasir. However his idenity as a Yludih was discovered and he swiftly made his escape to Nashaki. Instead opting to work away from people, Ben joined the Water Hole family originally as just a stable hand. Seb'ma, though, always encouraging him to break out of his shell, inspired him into caring for the mounts and gradually coaxed him into agreeing to teach his husbandry skills to others. He is a gentle soul, with a hard time being assertive.

[b]Brief:[/b] The Namib are one of the native wild horse breeds of the Hotlands. Feral and spirited it takes immense training to break these horses; though once you do, they become the fiercest of all mounts. They are athletic, muscular, clean-limbed and strong boned. They are short-backed with oblique shoulders, good withers and overall, they have good conformation. 
[b]Abilities:[/b] Their coat is an odd combination of tough hide and a semi-permeable membrane. Their skin is hard to cut, though it is breathable to allow the Namib a tremendous resistance to the scorching climates of the Hotlands.

[b]Brief:[/b] Their coats are ridiculously short and strangely smooth, etched with odd markings. Though the animal bears ridges and “rosettes” upon its face and ankles, where the fur is slightly longer. Great care must be taken to keep the coat clean and free of dirt. Commonly of a gentle, willing and able temperament, they make for the perfect work mount.
[b]Abilities:[/b] The Katura sleeps for the better part of the day outside, beneath the excruciating heat of the sun. As it sleeps the Katura churns the power of the Sun's rays during the day into energy, through its luminescent coat. At night, the mount's coat "glows" allowing the animal to work throughout the night and to light the way for its rider.

[b]Brief:[/b] The Thorned Horse is tall, thin and covered in thorns. It also has a long tail that retracts and splays like a fan to shield itself from the sun. It is the oldest breed of horse in Idalos. They were selectively bred for certain traits such as actively cooperate with their rider, to be high spirited and alert and to survive the heat of the Hot Lands. 
[b]Abilities:[/b] They are well suited for desert travel allowing them to survive weeks without food or water. Their body is made up of a layer of rubbery skin which contains an insulated layer of fatty deposits. The skin has small thorns throughout that limit evaporation from the horse's body - allowing them to retain fluids from escaping. Their eyes, nose and internal organs are adapted to be protected from dust and to reduce water loss. Finally and most uniquely, their tail can fan out to form a canopy above, protecting it and the rider from the searing suns above.

[b]Brief:[/b] Insect Desert Land Mount, with some water capability. Ideal Pack mount. Not only is their gait smooth, and their back wide and flat, they can carry 3/4 ton, or drag two with a wagon on flat land. The Po'Kropola'ax is like a 4-segment centipede, with an ant-type head. It has alternating sets of legs; one set jointed high above its back, the other firmly supportive underneath, as well as the specialized front and back sets. The Poko is not an aggressive insect, though, if provoked enough it will flip and attack. While not truly "loyal", they are cooperative. This has the drawback of making them easily led away by an enemy.
