A Tale in the Desert is currently in its fourth tale. MMORPG.com ATitD Correspondent Clarence Krueger II writes this overview of the story as it has unfolded to date.
A Tale in the Desert: Tale 4 started on December 13, 2008. The opening of Tale Four brings the sad news of the Pharaoh's passing. During his reign, the Pharaoh brought peace, prosperity, and great advancements. The Pharaoh is survived by his two sons, Sami and Wahim.
With the passing of the Pharaoh, the eldest son becomes the new ruler with the consent of his brothers. Sami, as eldest son, returned right away from his studies in Greece to lead the people of Egypt as their new Pharaoh. Wahim the younger brother was not in agreement. Wahim was not afforded the special education of his brother to study Egypt's history, its science, and human nature. Wahim believes that Sami would not be the leader that Egypt needs in its time of mourning.
