Scott the GreenThe Crystal Desert
Legends tell of a time, thousands of years ago, when the Crystal Desert was covered in water. These legends claim that it was the gods who raised the land, leaving it bare and empty in order to give the solitary creatures of the world a place to call their own. If the legends are true, humans were not among those for whom this land was made. There have been attempts by humans to settle in the desert, but they have, without exception, failed miserably, leaving behind only the grand monuments they built here, proclaiming their short-lived triumph over this harsh land.
The weather in the Crystal Desert is hot and unforgiving. The winds blow hard, making and unmaking dunes, covering up the present and uncovering the past. An examination of the sand will reveal that each grain is actually a tiny, pointed crystal. In isolated locations, larger crystal formations have been revealed by the constant, unforgiving wind.
Eratimus - that's a good idea. I cannot recall whether if it was in this thread or in some other thead but I believe it was you or someone who suggested there was three groups - Margonites, Elonians, and one other. I believe bleached bones spoke of a group called the Seekers. The Seeker's Passage was named after them, perhaps?Also, Eratimus, I remember a while back you posted a thread that compiled all the text from the bleached bones, but I can't remember much about your findings from it. Were you able to figure out which group(s) they were a part of?
