I once went to Crazy Hassan to buy Beast of burden for the snowy treacherous journey ahead. I suggested possibly an alpacca would be best considering the weather.

I somehow walked away with a Camel in an oversized jacket and a box of dried dates he threw in.

There was a bandit group, who used herds of camels strapped with explosives to cause massive terror in one of the towns isolated in the deep desert.

The town was built around the only well for miles, so the camels would be drawn to the water. Every time a man came too close to a camel to remove the explosive powder or guide the camel away, the bandits would fire a flaming arrow into the powder, killing the camel and however was foolish enough to be so close.

Hassan, traveling through on his way to the northern markets of a country far away, saw this madness.

No one is certain how one man dealt with so many in one night, but the bandits were found the next day, their bodies arranged to depict a huge camel in the sand. For all the dead camels he could scavenge, he buried them around the dead bandits, and marked their place with a small obelisk of pure marble, with only the word "Peace" written on them. All the other camels that had survived, he led into the desert. I have heard since that he found them loving homes and included the explosive powder with them as a free option.

The graves seemed more randomly placed, until Hakim yelled from the top of his house the next day. The stones, when properly connected by lines in the sand, formed words I will never forget:

"Crazy Hassan Here,

Amen, I say to you, I saw Crazy Hassan once. When I was a younger man, so many years ago he came to our village walking at the head of his camels. He set about to his works and raised his storefront just outside the village center and began to sell his wares.

For every camel he sold, he would give another as thanks to the customer. This caused quite a stir among the people and soon the entire town gathered around him, hoping for such a good deal. As it went, he handed off his last camel, but he looked dismayed to see me standing alone and camel-less.

He called out to me, "My good friend! A thousand apologies! If you would but give me six days to return to the city and back, I shall return with a camel for you, at great discount!"

I graciously bowed to him, "Good sir, I am but a poor man, I can neither afford nor desire a camel. I would never be able to care for it with what little money I have, I come instead with questions if you could offer me answers?"

He seemed confused for a moment, before bidding me to go on.

"Why did you walk, rather than ride a camel across the desert?" I asked

"To do so would use the camel more, and cheat my customers! I would never hurt their deal!"

"Why do you give so many away, when they could have as easily been sold?"

"Because I am crazy! Ha, ha! Just still, I would never deny my customers a good deal!"

"Why would you walk the a six day journey to the nearest city and return to sell just one camel to one poor man?"

"Because you are my customer. It matters not if you have bought from me, everyone is Crazy Hassan's customer!"

I bowed to him and thanked him for humoring my questions, I wished him luck on his future journeys and said I would pray for his continued happiness before I left him, the first and last time I would ever see him.

Three days later, I awoke to a great sound outside my small home. I walked out the front door and looked upon more camels than I had ever seen, all in a great pen with a note on the gate post. It read:

"To my good friend,

For all the money I could ever make selling camels, I would trade for your kindness again. For though Crazy Hassan has crazy prices, he knows the true value of things. I humbly offer these camels to you as thanks.


"And that my, young grand children is how I became the owner of the largest camel heard in all the desert. I have lived my life doing to others as I thought Hassan would like, treating others as a favored customer always. Never forget this man, I beg you, for he was a man like no other."

In the fleshmarkets, in the chambers of eunuchs, in the whorehouses and servants quarters and into the ears of the richest of noblemen it was whispered. The tale of the most black hearted slavemaster ever to walk the sands. It was said he was born without a soul and collected men to sell to the devil himself in return for one. It was said when his sons defied him, they were sold as eunuchs to the most twisted masters. It was said that when his daughters refused him, they were sold as whores to the darkest brothels in the most depraved cities. Is was said he was unkillable, though his body dripped in scars and wounds.

In the churches, in the marketplace, in he bright houses and oases and into the ears of the richest of nobles it is whispered. The tale of the most pure and devout monk ever to speak the name of Our Lord. It is said he is no man, but an angel, like Gibreel, sent to instruct in the ways of the righteous. It is said no renegade son is refused his advice. It is said no wayward daughter is refused his charity. It is said he has a dark past, and his body drips with wounds and scars.

One name links these two tales: Crazy Hassan.

First, you have to find the meanest camel ever to walk the desert sands.

Then, you must spend years of your life easing the rage of the camel, so much so that the youngest babe might ride it without fear.

I have a character like Hassan in my games. "Danny the Dwarf".

Know how higher-level characters always want Adamantine/Mithral/etc? Well, Danny was a Dwarf who specialized in finding rare and precious metal. Problem was he could never remember which was which, so he'd try to sell people gold and claim it was platinum, or adamantine which he accidentally called mithral, in what amounted to an infinite loop. Anyone who bothered to help him get his shit sorted got a steep, steep discount.

Danny was disheveled, constantly drunk and confus, and had a penchant for mining extensively in the bedrock underneath whatever city the PCs happened to be in at the time. Effectively, the moment the PCs said "we want some super-special armor!" they had condemned the nearest metropolis to a craterific sinkhole grave.

It was our good fortune to have found a native willing to talk to us, the rest had been quite difficult in the past days. I spoke through my interpreter, my only connection to the world of unexplained questions.

"What are those?" I asked, as I pointed to the statues on the hill, each eight foot tall man carved of wood, with a camel tied to each of their wastes.

The translator passed on the dialogue and returned to me the answer.

"They are the guardians of the island and have stood vigil for many years against the evils outside."

I was astounded, this would be the breakthrough of decades! I hurriedly asked, "And the camels, they are offerings?"

The translator again passed the question, but this time the older native woman seemed confused. The translator repeated and the old woman smiled and spoke. This time, the translator was confused, and she confirmed with the woman before speaking to me.

"She says, they are their property."

I was dumbstruck, "How do wooden men own camels?" I had spoke it more to myself, but my translator translated it anyway.

The old woman smiled,

Crazy Hassan a wandering Camel Salesmen and offensive stereotype. Hassan is vaguely Middle Eastern and dressed in robes, wearing a turban and fez hat. He’ll have set up his tent wherever the players have need of horses, even in other realms. Just look for the ostentatious streams of rope with colored flags.
Hassan is absolutely manic and prone to violent bursts of laughter mid sentence. His camels are reliable and sold at a discount for various reasons. Prolonged exposure to Hassan’s sales tent has been known to cause bad cases of fleas. Interestingly enough you notice that his camels are not the source.

The waves upon waves of gibbering spawn, supported by his own chaos space marines was now unstoppable. The hidden Demolisher tanks had been dealt with already, he feared them no more. This was going to be his day.

He redoubled his laughter, the guardsmen were starting to break. The bolt pistols of Commissars sang out along the entire line trying to keep the rabble in place. All it would need was one more push, one last assault. Abaddon began to run for the front, he would finish this personally, he had beaten Creed's plan and now he would torture the fool.

A great fire had razed the port town. Nearly all ships had sunk, those still afloat were still burning. At first all seems lost, there is no way you're going to get across the ocean in time. Dejected you venture in to town where most of the buildings seem to have only minor damage. While looking for the taver you come across a familliar sight. Crazy Hassan's Used Camels.

Hassan's head pops out of the tent, his head darts around until he spots you. It's almost like he knew you were coming.

Hassan runs up to you eagerly.

"Greetings! You need ship? I sell you ship! Cheap! Quality! I sell you sea camels!"

You look over and see a camel wearing water wings on it's front legs and a snorkel.

The party had been wandering through the desert for days. Lured to the land of death and sun by the fortunes of Dead kings. They had found nothing.
Vashir the Elven scout had return to the group on the third day. He spoke of a city walled on all sides by stone. Every house furnished to taste with fine tapestry and fine china. No a man walked the streets of this ghost town. Only Camels.
Vashir had return with the location of the town in hopes of returning to take spoils. The city was never found.
Upon returning to the nearest trade post I asked around about this mysterious city, empty and waiting to have its finery plundered. Not a soul would speak to me.
Finaly a meek old woman spoke. "That city is not yours for the taking" she chuckled grimly. "It is theirs"

"Whos? we saw no man in that desert"

"Indeed no man, no man at all. The Camels" she replied.

"Camels do not own, they are property. What madness do you speak of?"

She laughed and in a whisper lost to the sands "Not Madness per say. It is just his way... Hassan's way"

The Oasis beauty thanks you for your selflessness and offers you food and board for the night at her and wishes you to meet her husband. Her skills on horseback and beyond compare and she leads you swiftly across the desert. In the distance you see a familliar sight.

It had been days.

My compatriots at the club said it was sheer folly to cross the Saharah at this time of year, and I paid them no heed. My pride as an explorer wouldn't allow me to turn down such a challenge, to go through during the hottest summer.

The natives who were guiding me had already passed, poor bastards. Akhim was a good chap, but they were all malnourished. Had Akhim not been an arab he might have made a fine living in upper london...

But they had passed.

And I was not too far gone. I stumbled through the desert on my weakest day in no particular direction. It didn't truly matter, but I chose to walk West. I always preferred it when the sun was in the west, and it would have been an end I had more of a hand in, to die further in my chosen direction. That's what I told myself anyways.

By the time that noon came I had collapsed, and stayed in a sort of... dreamlike state. You know the kin of daze a chap gets when he's too tired? Indeed, but this was far more intense.

Until suddenly... a shadow covered me, the sweetest shade I'll ever know...

I looked up and saw what looked to be a Tuareg walking towards me with the largest herd of camels I had ever seen.

"Hello my friend! It seems you are in a bit of trouble out here!"

The accent wasn't Tuareg at all, I couldn't quite place it...

I replied that I was indeed in trouble, and he gave me a full waterskin, a rucksack of food, and a camel.

I had long since shed my wallet and valuables, even my pocketwatch, and I insisted he tell me where I could send a reward.

He looked at me and smiled.

"No my friend, Crazy Hassad needs no compensation for bringing you a great deal when you need it. Your reward to me is that you keep on living, and enjoy this fine camel."

They reached the sea.

After miles of desert, they reached the last great obstacle on the way to the promised land. Moses was troubled - God said he would help them, but how could they cross the sea? His people were behind him - he could feel their eyes on him, wondering whether it has all been a lie. There has to be a way.

Moses lifted his staff - the same staff he used to bring plagues into Egypt and slaughter thousands of the slavers who were now closing in on them. Then he brought it down, into the sea. It splashed.

Nothing happened.

He waited.

Nothing happened.

Then, suddenly, a voice was heard.


Moses turned towards the source of the sound and saw a small, turbaned man with a large black beard. Behind him, a whole legion of camels. "W...Wha-" "NO MONEY? NO WORRY! I TAKE WOMEN, OR YOU PAY LATER! IS FINE!" Moses blinked. "Can they swim?" The strange man laughed loudly. "SWIM? OF COURSE! SPECIAL AQUA CAMELS! COME SEE!".

Ten minutes later, all of the Jewish people were seated on the camels. People started leaving, but Moses stayed to ensure everyone would go in the sea. Hassan said to him: "SO, WHAT ABOUT PAY?". "I'm sorry, friend, I have no money. But you are doing this for the God's favoured folk and-" "GOD? IS FINE! YOU JUST TAKE GOOD CARE OF CAMELS AND NO NEED TO PAY". Moses thanked the man. All his people were already in the sea, so he started leaving as well.

Napoleon's Field Diary (Interestingly, this would make the 2nd find of such a field diary, whose own entries make interesting contract to the one kept under lock and key beneath the Louvre)

1st Entry - The sun bakes the sand beneath my feet, and I can't help but feel that the shade of Alexander and his generals watch my every move, judging me from beyond death.

2nd Entry - The March has been long and arduous, my Cavalry are close to exhaustion and the horses of Europe are not used to the desert heat. I have sent several messengers to local settlements, in hopes that they will send us the animals we need.

3rd Entry - I have been repeatedly told that my need for military animals may be met by one single man. Amazing, that the armies of France are to ride on due to the services of one man! I must find him, and hope he does not sell his wares to the Mamelukes before he sells them to me...

4th Entry - I have met with him. Under the shade of palm trees, he met my skepticism with unrelenting enthusiasm. He is like a force of nature, a dealer in promises and camels. I cannot remember the specifics of our agreement but I find myself 100 camels richer tonight.

5th Entry - Another 1000 camels arrived this morning. Truely this man is a god send!

6th Entry - The quarter master complains. Another 5000 camels arrived today and our stock houses are stretched to limit.

7th Entry - I find myself with a conundrum. With all these camels, I am easily the richest man in all of Africa and Egypt. I could sell them now and give myself and all the men under my command lives of luxury. With my camels easily reaching into the tens of thousands now, I could also mount the men on desert ships, and sail towards ancient byzantine on their graceful backs.

8th Entry - Lord Above, he has sent us more camels. Perhaps I mispoke when I said we could use all the camels we could get.

9th Entry - I officially have more camels than the men under my command.

10th Entry - I officially have more camels than the men under my command have testicles.

11th Entry - I... may have more camels than the entire human population of the Ottoman Empire. Moving them is an impossible task by itself and my momentum is virtually non-existent. Even my enemies are not free to move, so thick is my herd of camels. I feel I have been outfoxed here somewhere...

(The rest is a sordid tale that describes the fall of the area to camel worship and sadism. Even Napoleon falls prey to the 'charm of camels'. Of the merchant, I have found only scattered details. I will continue to look into it and send any relevant reports back to you. I hear there is a merchant not far from here who fits the description and I find myself in need of a great many camels...)

Guidelines for using Crazy Hassan in your setting.

-Crazy Hassan sells Camels when players are in need of cheap transportation.

-Crazy Hassan also sells camel related items and will throw in bags of dates or a jacket that's a bit too large for the person buying it.

-All players who encounter Hassan will come away with a Camel, regardless if the want one or if they even agreed to take it.

-Hassan loves his Camels and their well being means a great deal to him. He would never sell a Camel to a person who would purposely harm it.

-Hassan's Camels are always used.

-Hassan's wife is really fucking hot.

-Hassan, his camels and wife can, and will appear anywhere, any time and any age. He is not exclusive to one system, but the tales of his encounters are.

-Hassan's prices are CRAAAAZY Low.

-Hassan wears a Turban and a Fez at the same time.

A long rattle of autogun fire sounded as the Acolytes sprinted away. At the front was Marakh, the lithe assassin doing as he always did and running the fastest when trouble arrived. Close behind were Ganth and Stig, the scum and guardsman respectively. Coran, their tech-priest, lay dead in the street far behind them.

Shouts of rage came from all sides as the frenzied gang members and cultists drew ever nearer. Occasionally, as they rounded corners, they caught a glimpse of the front runners.

Their sprint seemed to be coming to a close as they came through a market. High buildings pinned them in on all sides but for where they entered, and a single alley gave them an exit. From the far end, near this alley, they heard a loud shout.

"Welcome, new and valued customers!"

In the midst of the chase, the shout was a surreal enough occurrence to stop their sprint. There was a rotund man wearing a round cap and a turban about it, his long beard touching his belt despite the smile that attempted to lift it up.

"Yes, welcome new customers! Crazy Hassan has just what you need! Camocks, only slightly used! Taken to Emperor's chapel only! Better quality than new, Crazy Hassan swears it!"

Ganth laughed quietly and approached as other men rounded the corners. "How about...four thrones for three camocks?" As he pulled out the coins, he eyed the long legged beasts indigenous to the world. A single hump on their back was fitted with a comfortable looking saddle, reigns already fitted to their mouths. Behind him, Stig and Marakh readied their weapons, the front runners coming into view in the market.

"Four...FOUR THRONES?" The smile on Hassan's face grew even wider and he ducked into his small stand, returning with a dozen water skins, all full. "You have graced Hassan with your business, friends! Take these with his blessing!"

They quickly mounted and rode off. As they exited the city, Ganth saw Hassan stand in the middle of the causeway before the slavering horde and heard him shout.

"Welcome, new and valued customers! I am Crazy Hassan, and I have a better than new camock for each and every one of you!"

Might as well give it a shot. Not like I have anything better to do at 4:34 in the morning.

The Skinlands are shit this time of year.

Aw, who am I kidding? The Skinlands are shit all the time. Not like Stygia or the Temptest is any better, though.

But, walking through New Mexico has to be the worst decision the circle has made in a while. Betty said we had to travel far to make sure the Imperial flunkies couldn't find us after Carter had his Catharsis and royally fucked things up for everyone, but I didn't expect it to be THIS far.

We had reached the city by dawn. We were all as far from our Anchors as we'd ever been, and we could feel it. I personally just wanted to pop back there and sleep for God knows how long. I guess you could call that tired.

The worst part of it was the walking, and how slow we were.

You'd think in the good old United States, one could find a nice Relic Car around that didn't get junked. You'd be wrong.

So, there we were, wondering how we were going to introduce ourselves, to the Necropolis, when we see this tent in an alleyway.

We were a full day’s drive outside of Basrah, and Brinks was patting a camel. Why he was doing it, I have no idea. Normally, the man was hostile to any and all lifeforms with a pulse. Yet there he was, M4 in one hand, camel hump in the other, saying something about sand... to the camel. Last time I checked there was nothing in that desert save for this old oil well, our platoon, and this damn camel.

“Where the fuck did you get a camel?”
“Crazy Hassan.”
“Ain’t shittin’ you, sarge.”
“What the fu-”
“Over there, sarge.”

He pointed out into the dunes and I was about to tell him there was nothing out there, when I looked. He coulda beat me with a dried turd and I would not have noticed. There was this massive tent, just pitched outside of our camp. Maybe about two dozen camels, milling about the general area... but this tent. Lined with tassels and embroidery and... I just don’t have the words. I heard Brinks tell the camel “Stay!” but pretty much ignored him. This was a hell of a tent. Then, from within it, I heard a voice. Loud, excited, heavily accented.
>> /unscrup 05/03/10(Mon)04:54 No.9581621

(“...the hell?”)

“Welcome newandvaluedcustomers! I am Craaaaaaaazy Hassan and I have craaaaaazy deals for you on uuuuuuuused camels! Big camels, leetle camels, camel bags, camel saddles, manuals on how to milk your camel-”
“Damnit, Brinks!”
“Sorry sarge.”
“-toothpaste for your camel, camels for your camel, whatcanHassangetforyou newandvaluedcustomer?”
I really had no idea what to say. Obviously, he did.
“Comecome, comecome, let Hassan show you finecamelsatlowprices!”

Something just compelled me to follow him, and I did. Brinks was poking around a shelf of camel-care manuals; I let him. Hassan- pardon me, /Crazy/ Hassan- was a master salesman. I am unsure as to how long he talked to me (at me?) about the virtues of the animals and the deals he had on them. I had to ask him about Brinks.

“Him? Oh, he was grumpy. He come in, insult me, make manyrudegesturesandcomments, point gun at me... is okay. He simply has never met the great and gentle camel.”
“The whatwhat whatnow?”
“He meet with camel, camel like him, they are meant for each other. I let him have at half price. He apologize, brush camel, smile... I tell him come back, Hassan will always have a camel for him. Nice guy. Greatandvaluedcustomer. MayIinterestyouinacamel?”

Thank goodness I was broke, or I would have walked out of there with one of the damn animals.

Speakin’ of which, we were shipped back to Baghdad a day later, and the tent was gone. Just fucking gone.

Shit, when someone shot Brinks’ camel, he beat the man to death with his helmet.

Somehow, the next day, two camels arrived on base, with embroidered saddles...

We didn't have time to wonder before a man wearing a turban and a fez popped his head out of it. He grinned, his silver teeth glinting in the low light.


There was silence. We had no idea what to make of this guy. He was clearly alive, but we couldn't tell a thing about him. His health and life were a mystery. Jezebel, who's supposed to be a master of that kind of stuff, seemed totally out of her element.

Eric spoke up.

"Uh, Mr...Hassan, I'm afraid we're...well, we're not exactly the camel riding kind."

We normally would have walked away, but when a living man is talking to a group of bloodless spooks from his tent in the alleyway and not seem the least bit surprised, it's hard to not stick around.

Crazy Hassan looked at us for a moment, then laughed. It was at once calming and terrifying.


Curiosity had gotten the better of us. We walked into his tent.

So we were wanderin' through what was left of...I guess it used to be either California or Nevada. Enough Doomsayers around that it could have been either. Anyway, it doesn't matter. What matters is that we were out on the dry flats. Not quite desert, but...dry. And fucking awful in all regards.

Our truck broke down for what must have been the third time, and this time the gas tank dropped off. We didn't have enough spook juice left to get...well, anywhere, but we thought there might be a group to come along. We had enough food and water that we figured we could wait it out.

God damn, we were wrong.

Even down to tight rations, we were going through the water too fast. Anyway...the witch with us was just a -little- too hopped up on whateverthefuck it was she kept in that skull, and she started yelling about seeing someone out in the sands.

We looked, but there was nobody. She just kept saying, "The camels! There are fucking camels out there!"

We ignored it, but she just kept yelling about seeing it!

Eventually, I stuck my head out and looked around. Sure enough, where she was pointing, there was a huge white tent and a few dozen camels.

Now, at this point, we were all more than just a little bit unnerved. Firstly, this tent just came out of nowhere. Secondly, there were camels around it. CAMELS. We hadn't seen so much as a horned toad in a month, and here were a bunch of fucking CAMELS. I won't even go into the fact that they couldn't have been native to the area.

Collectively, we decided to go check it out. The witch is still babbling about the camels (the sun must have gotten to her) and now the Doomsayer riding with us is going a little nuts. I asked why, and he said that these things were completely free of radiation. COMPLETELY. That threw another dozen red flags up in front of me, but I didn't care. I wanted to know what the hell was going on.

We get within a dozen strides of the tent and this tiny little guy comes blasting out, dressed like fuckin' Lawrence of Arabia. Before we can so much as twitch, he's smiling and shouting at us.
>> Anonymous 05/03/10(Mon)05:18 No.9581859

We went into the tent and were taken aback.

Lo and behold, there were camels. Peacefully hanging around, I could swear that some of them could look at us.

He led us to the back, where we we saw five camels in a pen of their own. One for each of us.


Thomas reached up to pet one (I'm sure it was just a reflex, considering that none of us has touched an animal in quite a while) and gasped.

He was indeed able to touch it. The other camels proved to be touchable as well. I personally could not stop petting the thing once I reached out for the one near me.

"We have deal, yes?" asked Crazy Hassan, his voice now more muted in tone. He knew we were sold.

Betty paid him with Stygian coins, which to our surprise he took in his hand as if they were made in the Skinlands. Even the faint groaning from the coins came to a stop once they reached Crazy Hassan's hands.

We rode out soon after. It's going to be hard to explain to the Necropolis, but I haven't felt this happy in a long while.

"Welcome, new and valued customers! I am the one and only Craaaaaaaazy Hassan! My madness is your savings, as you will see on many of these fine slightlyusedbutinconditionsbetterthannew camels!"

He stood there smiling at us, but we must have looked like someone just hung naked pictures of our mothers in front of us. My only guess on that is that he came closer, still smiling. "Friends, friends, there is no need to look dismayed! Even if you have little to barter with, Crazy Hassan will have a deal for you!"

In something like a daze, we followed him around all of his camels as he rattled off information. "This is Al-Aziz! Yes, a good strong camel, only owned by a very tiny sikh. Never had much burden, but a strong will!" I couldn't tell. It was a goddamn camel.

"This one is Alibabba! I call him this because he is smart, but also crafty! Leave him tied loosely, and he will surely end up in your tent to share your space. Such a kidder he is!" He patted the camel's nose as he walked past. The thing just kept on chewing its cud.

Before Crazy Hassan could regale us about another camel (apparently born from a royal camel, or something), I cut him off.

"Listen, buddy, we just need four camels and some water. Can you set us up with that?"

The look on his face was one that still wakes me out of deep sleep to this day.
>> Inquisitor Cale !!b+iFaavctAj 05/03/10(Mon)05:25 No.9581919
He was smiling so wide that I thought his face was gonna tear in half. Hell, the witch was cringing and I'm pretty sure she's spent time talking to demons.

Anyway...He gets all bouncy and laughs before pointing a finger at me. I flinched like he had drawn cold iron. "Friend...That is Hassan's deal of the week! You are lucky, friend, oh yesyesyes." He pulls the reigns from a few of the camels, including Alibabba and Al-Aziz, and shoves them into my hands. A minute later, he walks around with three -more- camels, all loaded down with kegs of water and some other stowage.

"See? Crazy Hassan always treats his valued customers with respect and gives them the best deals that he can, because YOU are Hassan's valued customers! Be sure to come back to Hassan for your future needs!"

The doomsayer opened his mouth to say something about trade, but Hassan waved a hand at him. "Bah, faddle, nonesense. You are friends to Hassan! These are gifts to friends, yes! You tell others of Hassan, and Hassan will call it even! Now travel well, esteemed and valued friendcustomers!" With that, the guy darted back into the tent. In the bags, there must have been five hundred rounds of mixed ammo and enough armor to replace what had gotten damaged on us. On top of that, we had enough water to reach the next city with plenty to spare.

I won't say much, but I know I've told everyone looking for a mount to look for a guy named Hassan. As crazy as he was...I'd hate to get on his wrong side by sending folks elsewhere.

As soon as you raised a knife to harm one of his camels, it would be snapped out of your hand by an unseen force. A dark wind would begin to flow as everything faded, save a portly man in your field of vision.

"Valued customer...have you no respect for Hassan's deals?"
