Islands of Abyr
Nomad's notes: Abyr is a strange geography phenomenon. It is a desert with sandy and rocky surfaces and it's all surrounded by ocean. There are two mountains, but only one of it deserved it's name - Unite.
The lands are covered with various settlements. Some are more civilizationally, some are less. Town names are giving some middle-eastern thoughts. People are seperated by settlements and groups or clans. The strongest one is a capital of these lands located at the east and it's named "Oahat" because it's settled in "Oa" lands.
Northern there's "SAA" island. It stands for South Abyr Alliance, you can find a civilian grade airfield and a couple of towns there. Basically it's just a trade alliance that lives semi seperated from the main island. They have everything they need for a living. Transport communications and farms.
The main trade deals are comming through Ailham - main commerce town. Before export goods are able to leave the place, they're going through this town.
To the north of Ailham there's some port towns - Gat'e and Zahel. Gat'e is somewhat industrial town. There's a warehouses, factories and garages. I can't tell anything about Zahel, because locals didn't let me to go there. That's some mystery. Talking about locals. People here are way different. There's no such word as "law" here. You are free man in the desert. You can act like a total a-hole if you'll manage to stay your ground. The basic rule is "Strongest will survive" or should i call it "Toughest will survive".
That's why people are using armored trucks to move around. Trucks or the whole convoy of armored vehicles. Cars are not that impressive, to be honest. Armor is makeshift, you know, metal plates, wires and mounted guns. But this is more than enough to stay competetive in this place and avoid unforeseen guests during your journey.
The place lives with oil. Classic! I counted atleast three oil fields and only two of them were in working condition. They are heavily guarded and of course nobody wanted me there. That's why i had to scope these places from the distance.
Well, time to move on...
