So begins the tale of Lasham Al Qasimi, Prince of the Seven Domes, Lord of the Desert Winds, Shadow in the Night.And Lo, so was the God of Confusion and deftness bested by another. Thrown down from on high he was overcome by the magicks of the cruel god of secrets. Abandoned by the winds of fate Al Qasimi escaped by using the ancient Sapphire Jalumalza to barter with that most clever of Djinns Ishvan to escape the darkness of that cruel and heartless dungeon of the lord of secrets, stealer of the souls of men and crusher of nations.
Bereft of power but returned by skill alone to the ancient lands of his birth Al Qasimi happened upon the lavishing dwelling of prince betrayed by his priests; Al Qasimi came to aide of this most glorious of princes, builder of cities, gilder of palaces. By dint of marshal skill and cunning the priest were laid low and their schemes thwarted.
The Prince so saved, offered Al Qasimi the finest of mares barded in the purest of red-gold. So that he would be able to begin in earnst his quest for vengeance. For soon the time for revenge upon God of Secrets would be at hand.
But that is a tale for another day,
So ends this tale by Hakim Al-Tusi master of stories for that fair city of Tusi, the Ruby of the sand the Emerald the 9 Raj
Told on the 9th day of Karal
