We fear what we don't understand. In Tebat, the desert is vast and unforgiving while the hovering heat is heavy and will quickly melt common sense. Deep in the desert are the ancient diagrams of Kamza, drawn by the Nomads who live in isolation from the rest of Nadirim. The Nomads are private people, bypassing the daily dramas of civilization. Little is known about the Nomads and even less is understood about the Kamza diagrams they design to perfection. They are believed to have been constructed from the branches of the Charbu Tree, branches that ooze a glue like substance called amar, which matures into liquid rock under the desert sun. The diagrams are massive in size and have developed slowly over time, like wrinkles on a face. Some insist they are warnings of impending doom, while others allege they are the indecipherable language of the Nomads.
The Howling Gorge – Strange noises have been coming from the Howling Gorge for some time and the reasons remain unknown. It is known that the gorge is a zoo, literally and figuratively. The animals trapped there live in despair, under tattered roofs of aged leather and decayed wood. The gorge itself has something to howl about.
