The P'athna Oasis

Present Day.

The P'athna Oasis is ruled by the House of Al'Rachid.

It is situated on the edge of a rock hill that overlooks the desert. The buildings are made of white stone.

The entrance to the Tomb of Wonders is on the top of the hill. So far, no one has been able to enter from above or below. It is said to be sealed with the magic of the Jinn and even Prince Brand himself was unable to unlock the Tomb's secrets. The Prince was lured to P'athna by a Pathi tester who had retired there to study the tomb.


Lady Cha'dyza, head wife of Sheik Jibril of Al'Rachid is the Iron hand of the Oasis.

The Sheik Jibril Al'Rachid has 35 wives and a Harem.

The Harem operates like a family and are not slaves.

Of Jibril's 35 wives, it is said that his Head wife chose six to join him in City Amber.
