Legends Of The Lost Desert: Musa of Al-'Aqrab
Long ago, the Kingdom of The Lost Desert was a proud and noble empire, honored all throughout the lands. Peace and prosperity flourished for years, until greed and tribal disputes led to conflict and divisions. The great Kingdom was split into 5 clans, each taking a new name, a new history, and a new direction in the world.
The lowest and most despised among the five clans was the 'Aqrab clan; known for their treachery, barbarism, and overwhelming envy of all of the other tribes. But even among the morally-deprived, there was a code of honor, a sense of culture, and a certain set of values.Their one claim to fame and only notable possession in the entire tribe was a blade whose history dated back to the early days of the once great Kingdom. Passed down from generation to generation through the male descendants only, the sword was eventually gifted upon Talha ibn Hussein. When his daughter, and only child, passed away giving birth to an illegitimate son, Talha was left as the keeper of the sword and caretaker of the ill-begotten son, known only as Musa.
Musa grew up to be a young man under his grandfather's watchful eye. There were disputes of his entitlement to the family heirloom, due to the impurity of his mother and the mystery of his father. Hated by all of the other villagers, Musa never expected that he would become anyone of significance and admiration, let alone reach the status of a legend.
However, when a tragedy forces him to flee the only home he's ever known, Musa sets out on a journey across the lands to discover a history unknown and undergoes the most difficult of struggles to maintain possession of his only remaining birthright. Faced with many perilous adventures, astounding discoveries, and lessons to be learned, Musa has a long way to go before he's a hero in anyone's mind.
Just as every sword is forged in fire, every great man must face his trials. These are the tales of a warrior. The chronicles of a hero. The legend of Musa of Al-'Aqrab.
