The great Phoenix

The great phoenix has a long history with the plain of Pash-Mara. Intervening in the great conflict between the inhabitants of the Yancharl continent against the the armies of the demongiant god Ymir. The Pharaos of the Nila river see the phoenix as a sacred protector. They feel indebted to the great phoenix that they watch over the eggs of lesser phoenixes that roost in a temple deep in the dessert. The great phoenix even inspired a martial art tradition known as the Way of the phoenix.
