World of Trexlin-Update
A second update today - as I may be unable to provide an update tomorrow - is a quick glimpse into a long forgotten temple that lies buried somewhere between the Desert of Flames and the Dunes of Sa'al - the Temple of the Djinn
Order of the Djinn A Briefing by Abu Shahir
The Order of the Djinn, having vanished over 600 years ago, still beckons the young and foolhardy to their deaths among the burning sands between the Desert of Flames and the Dunes of Sa'al.
While the records are incomplete, it can be said with a high degree of certainty that at it's zenith, the Order of the Djinn had well over 70,000 followers, and a priesthood of nearly 4,000.
Founded at least 1,100 years ago, the Order is said to have been built at the command of a quartet of Noble Djinn.
Records claim that their base, the magnificent city of Jahdu-Kar - with it's silver capped towers, and walls of unblemished obsidian, sprang forth from the sands overnight.
In the nearly 500 years that the Order flourished, it is said that they amassed such wealth, that it would take a thousand score porters to move.
Less is known about the sudden collapse of the Order. In a period of less than three months, it is said that not one priest of the Order remained. Countless rumors have been told:
--The Noble Djinn turned on their followers and buried the city under a mountain of sand
--The High Priest attempted to bind the Noble Djinn - and a mighty war ensued between the Djinn and the order
--A mysterious plague swept through Jahdu-Kar, destroying all in the city
No ones knows for sure.
But, at least once every generation, there are rumors of someone having located the fabled city of Jahdu-Kar and having returned with great riches.
Of this I am certain, the Order of the Djinn did exist for many centuries - and something must remain, somewhere in the sands.
