✅ Great Desert High Difficulty Level "Shahzad"

Developer Commentary:

Sometimes the Great Desert, the hallmark of Valencia, takes after the names of kings.

Great Desert: Imur and Torme are two such names taken after Valencian kings. Not all kings would leave such a lasting impression, however. Given the Great Desert's importance to Valencia, branding a location after a king is reserved only for the most distinguished and revered among them.

King Imur was recognized for utilizing his military strength to create the splendor that Valencia exhudes today, while King Torme fostered the nation's strength through academic advancements, such as astrology and astronomy, and through Black Crystal resources, along with the wealth these endeavors provided.

After the death of Torme, his eldest son Shahzad became the new heir. His name earned its place in the desert after he reconciled with the Aakmans by righting past grievances, while also establishing cordial relations with nearby nations.

- You must complete the new story "Great Desert Glory" to be granted access to "Great Desert: Shahzad."
