Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea
For centuries, the Empire of the Crescent Moon has remained isolated from the rest of Théah — barred by cultural barriers and a fearsome embargo by the Vaticine Church. Only a select few have journeyed beyond her borders… but they have seen wonders which put the rest of the world to shame. From fierce desert tribesmen to the cultured city merchants, from the gardens of the Sultán to the forbidden slopes of Mt. Karada, from the clandestine Eyes of the Peacock to the ruthless Qathl’i assassins, the Crescent Empire holds enough marvels — and terrors — to fill a thousand lifetimes.
