Annual Events – Land of Black Sands – The Concept

Characters who quest to the top of the World Mountain, in the Land of Black Sands in the middle of Ethengar can ask the spirits three questions, can they gain back four answers, in a random order, one to a question they did not want to know the answer to.

Annual Events – Land of Black Sands – The Reveal

  • AC 1006 (Camdu)
    • Will the Khan unite the tribes in his lifetime into one glorious tribe?
    • If her friends and her will continue to travel together as we have?
    • What does her future hold
    • When will you die (the one question not wanted to be asked)

Annual Events – Land of Black Sands – The Outcome

  • AC 1006 (Camdu – The Four Answers in no particular order)
    • When you make the choice between Your People, Friends or Family as being the most important aspect of your life, the spirits will come to your aid and you will succeed beyond your wildest dreams, and utterly fail the other two.
    • The bonds of your past friendships have been broken, you can never be what you once were, not will you remain the same as your venture forth to lay claim to your destiny destroying what your friends once cherished.
    • It is almost time for all the clans to unite and show the world what strength can be found in the people of the steppes, it can still be changed, stopped or accelerated as you still have a part to play in its unification or destruction, what are you willing to sacrifice to succeed.
    • Punishments, Enslavement, Torture and Death await you on your chosen path of one of many possible destinies, a spark of greatness is there, will it grow, burn brightly for a time or simply go out are all based on your choices and those around you.
