Many hundreds of years ago, the barbarian hold on Southern Houress was broken by more modern advancing armies. Most integrated into the newer societies, while others retreated to what is now Gorth and the Barbarian Kingdom.

 

Small bands of barbarains retreated into the Gloridon Desert, where they established new tribes. Over the centuries, the tribes have sustained themselves in the harsh desert environment by sheer determination, loose alliances, and occasional trade with the outside world.

 

Religion

 

The tribes and the gods they worship are a representation of both their ancient roots and the more modern beliefs absorbed into their society from the peoples who came down from the north centuries ago.

 

Topographical Points of Interest

 

Gloridon Desert

 

This vast sun baked wasteland is a treacherous place to live for any creature, even those adapted to such an environment. As with any desert wasteland, food and water are at a premium, and are often used by humanoids living there as currency to purchase what they need.

 

Turin Hills

 

These rocky hills provide some protection ogainst the harsh elements of the desert, which is why some tribes live here.

 

Hollen Downs

 

These hills, which butt against the eastern slope of the Rockroost Mountains, is a place of protection from the harshness of the Gloridon Desert. Many creatures take refuge here, including at least one tribe.

 

Rocroost Mountains

 

The Rocroosts run from the eastern edge of Regdon and into Criksrad, separating the two contries from the Gloridon Desert. As per the name, the spires are well populated with the legendary Rocs. There are also many dwarves, orcs, goblins, kobolds, and other creatures here.

 

Vulture Peak

 

A towering active volcano, Vulture Peak can be seen for miles. Many creatures can be found in and around this formidable mountain, including some tribes. It is rumored that a powerful wizard makes his home here, where he plots and plans for his next grab at power.

Located at the southern tip of Vulture Peak, this community of sheiks and traders numbers over 1,200. Tothesi is a place of great trade among the various Gloridon tribes, as well as outsiders from the west, particularly Havalla and Rorus.

 

In the Tothesi society, there is a great emphasis on bartering, since coin iis not always in ready supply. Slavery is strictly forbidden by the Tothesi, as it is with all tribes of the desert. Women are considered secondary to men, who often maintain several wives as a sign of power and virility.

 

With resources in the desert at a premium, theft is punishable by death.

 

Camel Races

 

Although camel races are an important part of desert tribal life in Gloridon, none are as grand as those held each solstice by the Tothesi. Jockeys from near and far come to participate in a contest known for its spectacular brutality. The prize: a small silver flask of rare spice called Anaux that can fetch as much as 10,000 gold due to its ability to increase a man's sexual robustness by as much as three times.
