The royal city of Sharam was built across the only river that runs through the desert. The desert is an anomaly, it’s the only one that exists. As there are no differences in temperatures regardless how north or south you are, there should be no deserts. It’s a miracle to the locals, who tell the story of a traveler. He came to the desert when all it hosted were tiny warring tribes, and cut it in half. With the swing of his weapon, he parted the sea of sand and water gushed into the desert from the sea. Then, the traveler began a war, united the tribes under one banner and massacred the ones who failed to yield. And so, the civilization of Sharam was born, from blood and from water.
