The E&P People of the Sands are as elusive as they are mysterious. Most E&P players will go their entire lives without ever encountering one. Many adventurers have journeyed deep into their territory seeking to learn more about their culture; few have ever returned to tell the story.
Today, world renowned archaeologist F.T. Barnsworth embarks on a journey deep into the desert in an attempt to unearth the secrets of this ancient society.
Accompanied by a local guide, translator, and a small camera crew, F.T. intends to cross the vast expanses of the E&P desert, searching for clues that might point him to their origins.
We spoke to one local resident in the nearby town of Umbar, who strongly advised against going forth with F.T.'s expedition:
“Stupid fool doesn’t know what he’s doing, going out into the desert. There is no food, no water. Only death will find him there. Fat idiot should go back to his air conditioned library and stick to staring at dead butterflies in display cases.”
Barnsworth, however, has decided to ignore those warnings, insisting on going forward with his expedition.
“This has been my life’s work,” Barnsworth explains. “I believe I have finally discovered the location of the original Sand Empire. And I intend to find it, or die trying.”
