Desert – Moderate sized city
Ruler: Caliph Kain-al-Zir NE outsider Efreet M Aris 5/Clc 5
Al-Shaddar is a moderately large basin city located in the water plain of the River Zirim and the Osad-Kir, a tributary river that branches off from the Kashar-al-Kir. The Osad-Kir is the only major source of water within the Shaddarin Desert, and control of it is disputed by the neighboring kingdom, Rahmad. The Shaddarin Knights are renowned for being able to survive in the desert storms and harsh climates of the Osad region.
Priests and those who hold sway over the divine are revered greatly throughout the region, especially those who can produce water. Mercenaries are as plentiful as bandits. However, arcane spellcasters are feared for their destructive abilities and potential fire control.
