    [al-Qadim] Enlightened Monsters

    Artist Unknown I haven't talked about it as much, but I'm quite a fan of al-Qadim. Even 25 years later its mostly Middle Eastern-themed setting is still a rarity in Dungeons & Dragons books. Seeing other takes on the culture such as The Nightmares Underneath, and Kobold Press' Southlands* made...

    [Music] Recommend me some soundtrack for a Middle-Eastern game

    So for my next game I am going to set the campaign in the Principalities of the Crusade (Dragon Warrior's Legend), where crusaders of the True Faith (the world's analog of "Christianity") have invaded the lands of the Ta'ashim (Islamic). Where can I find some good Middle-Eastern music for my game?

    [Traveller] Sinbad the Voyager is a Traveller PC

    We've had several threads about the best system for running an Arabian Nights style game. But after reading the seven voyages of Sinbad to my kids, I realized that the tale is a quintessential Traveller campaign. Sinbad is a middle-aged, mild-mannered merchant (not a movie tough guy) who...

    African and Arabic themed settings?

    I'm working on an arabian nights esque setting atm. Can anyone point me in the direction of already published African and Arabian themed settings? Preferably ones where miracles are rare, there is no divine magic and the existence of god is a matter of faith (spirits on the other hand I plan...

    Give me your Arabian Nights stories

    Who has run an Arabian Nights campaign? Maybe using GURPS Arabian Nights, Al-Qadim, Tales of the Caliphate Nights or one of the other Arabian Nights games. What worked and what didn't work?

    Introducing the Mad Arab

    My players are interested in roleplaying in the setting of 1001 Arabian Nights. As a longtime CoC GM I can't let the opportunity pass to let them encounter the Mad Arab Abd Al-Hazred in living person as he lived and wrote the Al Azif roughly in the same time period. The Mad Arab is a legendary...
