Developer eGenesis has announced the imminent end to A Tale in the Desert IV with A Tale in the Desert V looming on the horizon. As the game as it is currently played comes to a close, players will have the ultimate choice to make: Who will become pharaoh for ATitD V?
At the close of A Tale in the Desert III, the death of the old pharaoh left his two sons pulling in opposite directions. Now it's up to players to decide once and for all whom they will follow. Sami promotes the good life while his brother, Wahib, believes in hard work to bring meaning to life. Unlike real life ascension to the throne, A Tale in the Desert players will have the ultimate power: A server-wide election for pharaoh will be held to decide who will rule.
And choosing the new ruler will have in-game implications as well: Sami's ascension to the throne will bring about up to seven new technologies with the potential to completely alter the way the game is currently played. These new technologies affect the way everything in the game is built or constructed. If Wahib is elected, things currently in place for ATitD IV will continue unchanged in ATitD V.
Find out the exact particulars of the upcoming election or get involved in the game via a free trial at the official A Tale in the Desert IV site.
