   The Crimson Tide Desert is an inhospitable place where the heat of the scorching sun and the freezing nights are the least violent things that can kill you. As above, so below lurk many dangers; from monsters to ancient curses and many things in-between! It is a land of golden dunes tainted in blood, where the weak die and the strong survive.

Refuge and relative safety are found in but a few scarce places, most prominently the various settlements, towns, and cities built around the oases that are dotted across the Crimson Tide. Some spend their entire lives in one of these places, not daring to take a single step beyond its boundaries. However, some do brave the sand ocean, be it for adventure, profit, or something else.

These soldiers of fortune are called nomads and are oft employed to transport goods between various safe-havens. Banding together as clans, they traverse the sandy dunes of the desert not by foot, nor by horse or camel, but by so-called “sand skimmers”; light and fast vehicles resembling small ships equipped with not just sails but also special magical equipment that allows the skimmer to glide across the sand as if it were water.

Our tale begins with the misfortune of two nomads, following a botched contract that leaves them in serious debt and the possibility to damage their reputation beyond repair. Granted an opportunity to settle their debt, they are tasked to set out and find the long lost tomb of the wicked warlock king Azmond II. But with just a single, vague clue at hand and their sand skimmer damaged beyond repair, the nomad pair has their work cut out for them.

I'm looking for someone to write this fantasy adventure set in a dangerous desert filled with monsters and magic, dipped in a few Egyptian aesthetics, with me. The plot's been left open for change and can be taken in various directions, acting more as a starting point. It can certainly veer off into darker themes and adventures. There's a treasure trove of ideas to be explored here and I'd love to discuss them further!

With this being a fantasy setting, neither of our characters have to human. Considering the setting, humanoid creatures such as those with cat or dog/jackal features (ears, tails, etc.), lamia, djinn, and whatnot would not be out of place. Of course, the tried and true traditional fantasy races such as elves can also easily fit in here.

If you're interested in taking on this adventure with me, please feel free to visit my Ons and Offs and send me a PM afterward.

Sail forth, brave Crimson Tide nomads!
