This is the page where I store all my ideas about the Levant for use with ArM5 sagas, both older 4th edition material and the newer material based on the changes introduced in The Cradle and the Crescent.
This has links to my conversion notes for Niall Christie’s ArM4 Blood And Sand supplement. I owe this to Niall for all his inspiration and help. I’ve included his Variant 5th Edition Sahir article and my Levantine Sahir notes in this section.
This series of articles is intended to support play of non-Christian magi in the Iberian Tribunal but some of the elements may be applicable to a Saga set in the Levant.
Additional Applicable Material
Many of the ideas and concepts presented on this site in other sections related to The Cradle and the Crescent are also applicable to the Mythic Levant:
- Cats in Islam
- Magical Camels
- Saluqi and Dogs in Islam
- Wolves of the Middle East
- ‘Udhrut, the Jinni’s Bane
ArM4 Levantine Material (Niall Christie)
- (Saudi) Aramco World, a bimonthly magazine has a lot of interesting material on the Middle East that can be used for Story Seeds and Saga ideas. Anything by Paul Lunde is usually worth a look and the PDF Archive is accessible for for older articles without subscription.
