Mythic Arabian Nights
From the cards that Justin picked, i have Mythic Arabian Nights. This will be hard but with a decent amount of research i will be able to quickly get a footing on where i want to go with this project. Hopefully in a weeks time i will have a strong story to base my characters on.
I have done some preliminary research but will use influence maps in the next week to get a stronger idea of where i want to go with this.
Arabian Mythology: This is the ancient, pre-islamic beliefs of the Arabs. Prior to Islam the Kabba of Mecca (cuboid shape in Mecca) was covered in symbols representing the myriad demons, djnn (supernatural creatures), demigods, or simply tribal gods and other assorted deities which represented the polytheistic culture of pre-islamic Arabia.
