Across the great gorge lies a land of burning desert and nomad tribes. Khazad, once a glittering land, fell out of favor with the gods and was forcibly severed from the rest of the land. Now, its people strive for survival travelling between the few oases and cities. Bands of raiders strike at caravans, and travel is ill advised. Stories tell of a great city that shimmers like fire in the sun, but there are no official reports.
