The grassy Plains of Paresh are located north of the city of Katheer, capital of the satrapy of Qadira. The plains stretch from the Pashman River in the south up to the Jalrune River in the north, and from the Saray Coast in the west up to Ladan River in the east.
The Plains are home to shepherds and tribes of horse-breeding nomads. The nomads love horses and a fine mount brought in by a visitor may easily be stolen. The nomads are happy to challenge outsiders to races in order to prove the rightful ownership of a fine steed. Their leader rides a white genie-booned stallion.
