Edit The Burning Sands were said to have once been a lush and fertile land, until the region was cursed by Shilah , the Lady Sun, during the Day of Wrath. The sands of the region still surged with residual energies that originated on that day.
It was controlled for centuries by an extremely powerful Caliph named Hanan Talibah , who possessed great magical powers and near immortality. Her will was enforced by heartless sorcerers called the Khadi. Medinat al-Salaam was a centre of intrigue and warfare, and a cultural crossroads.
With the death of Hanan Talibah, political rule once again returned to a balance that the city had not known in centuries - a Sultan that wrote the laws, and a Caliph that enforced them.
The Qabal opposed Hanan Talibah and tried to lift sanctions imposed on the practice of magic, as well as leading the only substantial rebellion to her power. During this rebellion the Qabal suffered substantial defeat, driving the organization underground for hundreds of years. Since the death of the Caliph Hanan, The Qabal once again opened their doors to any who would wished to learn the magic of the sahir.
The Qabal was suffering from internal division; The traditionalists who still wished to operate secretly having experienced the dangers of operating openly under the Immortal Caliph , and those who wished to operate openly in the new climate of Medinaat al-Salaam. The Senpet army was remarkably well-trained, and utilized powerful War Chariots. Another such powerful empire, and a newcomer to the region, was the Yodotai empire, which crushed the Senpet in a lengthy and bloody 20 years war , from to The Senpet was absorbed by the Yodotai Empire, but about half of its most elite forces went into hiding and led a guerrilla war against the Yodotai.
In the Medinaat Al-Salaam, surviving Senpet leaders such as Kesseth , plotted against the invaders, hiding within the local Senpet population, a mixed of refugees, Yodotai collaborators and families settled from the time of Caliph Hanan.
Recent contact between the two Moto groups following the release of Lady Shinjo from her imprisonment led to the Moto taking leadership of the Unicorn Clan.
They had an embassy in the city, which was the most impressive building after the palace of the Sultan and the Caliph. They also took over the Senpet garrison buildings in the city and had a significant force of legionnaires stationed there.
At the time, their forces were not ready to make a move towards taking control of the Burning Sands, but it was only a matter of time before they turned their attention to Medinaat Al-Salaam and ultimately to the Emerald Empire of Rokugan itself. He had been the lover of Hanan and was manipulated into killing his own father. She cursed him with immortality, condemning him to have healthy daughters and to survivie his sickly and short lived sons.
The Old Man used the curse as incentive fighting his former lover and avenging his father. His daughters and some of his least crippled sons were trained as ruthless killers, dedicated to undermining the Caliphate. This vendetta ended in with the deaths of the Immortal Caliph and of the Old Man himself, assassinated by his eldest daughter Fatima.
His adoptive daughter and heir Adira , became Caliph. This led to a split in the Assassins. A third followed Adira and became the master spies and executioners of the new dynasty. Another third remained with another sister and kept fighting the Caliphate. The last third, mainly males, followed the only sound son of the Old Man.
That son became a Qolat master and used them as killers against other Qolats. Other Religious groups and secret societies were also very active and independent, ranging from the necromancer Jackal cult to the Ebon Hand sect. The first time was when the Ki-Rin set out to explore the lands around Rokugan. For almost eight hundred years they sojourned, returning later as the Unicorn Clan. Even though the exile was shortlived, many Scorpion lost their lives there.
