Valdorian Age - Rising Power on the Frontier
The Desert's Teeth
No rider has ever claimed to cross the Desert’s Teeth and journey into the Blowing Wastes, but they all seem to know a desert lies on the other side. The Cynthians think of the Desert’s Teeth as man who’s been struggling with some mortal ailment for a long time-everyone knows he will die eventually, and they pity him, but they also admire his long struggle to stay alive. The riders view the Blowing Wastes as a plague that wishes to spread across the land and consume Cynthia. Only the mountain range holds the desert in check, and when they travel withing sight of those bare peaks and can feel the warm, dry winds blow on their faces, the riders honor the Desert’s Teeth with sacrifices.
