View Full Version : Genies & Djapar

I've had genies in Khinasi lands for some time. They're of legendary status and
are closely modeled on those from Al-Qadim; which is almost the same as the
entries found in the Monster Manual.

I treat various parts of Khinasi as Moorish Spain, Turkey or Italy. The lands
are Med. in flavor, but certainly aren't the burning sands of Arabia or the
Sahara. Genies and their legends are thus known, but they aren't as prevalent as
in Djapar. IMO Djapar would make an excellent place for a stricter Arabic
culture- complete with Mamluks, slavery and Hashisan.

The thing to remember is that the Djaparians still worship Basaia and
(presumably) very few blooded individuals exist. This brings up the unblooded
regents issue again. Since Basaia no longer answers their call, it also needs
to be decided if Avani grants preist spells to the worshipers of her "mother".

Could be very interesting to have a Arabic society with a religion close in
power to that of the RW. Perhaps Avani would grant a few low level (1&2) spells
to Basaia's worshipers but no more.
