Desert people
Live along the bad lands in the south west of the desert.
Great deal of sandstone here.
These people were once slaves of the Kal-Kamorans, digging out huge stones from the quarries and sending them in towards their enslaver. They cut the stones that built the great Kamoran Temples.
When Kal-Kamora collapsed they took over this land.
They became very religious, thanking the god of the sand for destroying their foe.
They began building more temples, carving them from the stonework (see Ethiopian temples).
They had just enough food to get by, but kept building their temples.

Very religious. Worship three primary gods:
God of the Sand and Sun, and civilization
God of the Waters, and life
God of the Earth and Death
These are proto-Kamoran; and are still worshipped.

Strong belief in the afterlife.
Each person must have their body properly stored and adorned for death.
The large the temple the more powerful or important the person.

Cultural Points:
These people are not nomadic. They have lived a long time in this area.
They are tall and dark, related to the Kamorans.
They are very religious.
They had an ancient king, entitled the Khanus. The Khanus, or Khani, was supposedly a demi-god, child of the god of the desert. However, their last Khanus turned them into a terrible work force, practically enslaving them to build him a huge temple in the mountains west of their lands. He spared no expense and ruined their economy, then went off and got killed on some stupid adventure. They were left to pick up the pieces. They abandoned the nearly finished huge stronghold (taken over later by the Barukar). They returned to their lands a destitute people and are barely scraping by.
They have chosen a new Khani now and he is trying to lead them to a better life.
They are terrorized by the Hojun'Tovall and the Desert Giants.

Social Classes:
Two classes.
The Khani and his ruling tribe are upper class, able to make decisions for all the others.
They do not keep slaves.

Allies: Duervar, Kamorans.
