Factions ‣ Arashi League
|“||To venture into the Arashi Desert is to knock on death’s door. No one goes into the desert by choice, regardless of what rumors of treasure that were heard spilling from the lips of a drunken captain — muttered in the calm and shade of an outskirt tavern. The desert is death’s domain, but it’s the Arashi people who allow the specter to operate in their home.||”|
The Arashi are an anarchist collective (not a single people, but unite when necessary) found along the coast of the Southwest Desert. They share a border with the Mercantile Guild to the east and the Yesha Empire to the north. The Arashi only respect strength and believe those who can't survive the dangers of the desert on their own aren't worthy of life at all. That makes them unmatched warriors and fearsome enemies.
The League was formed when one powerful warlord conquered all the other tribes and united them to a common goal. Ever since, the infighting has been limited to open challenges between the mightiest members, allowing the Arashi to focus on their external enemies.
