Long thought to have vanished into the sands centuries ago, the city of Qasala was actually subject to a foul curse that left its inhabitants walking mummies and its elaborate architecture in ruins. To anyone from outside, the ruins appeared uninhabited except for a malevolent spirit.
The Qasalans made the best of their sorry state until their ruler, then Prince Jazan, took it upon himself to break the curse. Residents report that while the curse is now gone, there are frequent infestations of Scarabs throughout the city.
Nowadays, Qasala is a thriving city astride several caravan routes through the Lost Desert, with a bustling trade in chocolate, fruits, and spices. Its unique, fiery cuisine is very popular among traders, especially those selling water to tourists...
