I will now proceed to make my own humble contribution to this thread.
Marriage.We all know that marriages are important tools to cement ties with allies,since it makes the other party a member of the family,thus making it something of an obligation to come to his aide.I can imagine that in a high level campaign,a PC involved with a great cause would welcome the hand in marriage of the daughter of a strong chieftain or powerful lord.Tell me what you think of this.

An extremely potent weapon that is powerful enough to hijack the will of others. Not by turning them into mindless zombies like all those other so tiresomely common tools of mind control,but by allowing the user to win their complete trust with impassioned and solid lies. A nice departure. Ruling over an adoring populace cetainly bests being the master of an army of mindless pawns. All in all,this is an excellent item. Unfortunately,it does seem a tad too powerful,and for that I'll have to take a point off.
I like this setting. It reminds me of the salt-rich home of a African dessert people that go by the name of the Afar,with their dessert being a lucrative source of wealth,despite being nigh inhospitable for living.
Just imagine all the horror stories that would be bandied about the savage Akulu and their penchant for torturing and killing any trespassers in their domain. Or the Sand Wryms that battle with the elemental ''godlings'' of the dessert. I can imagine the deeply religious people of that region seeing these encounters as being representitive of the greater cosmic struggle between good and evil. Go to Comment
Cheka! Don't leave this NPC mouldering in the dust. You promised to update it. And so you should. You're capable of transformign this character into something worthy of four or five flames after all. Go to Comment
The Water-Rift is a massive crater in the center of the desert, in the center of which sits a large, unfathomable machine that produces water. Thusly, it is a veritable paradise in the center of the burning desert, and a unique culture exists there.
