About: It is rare to find a temple to Jaros anywhere but in a desert, but in the deserts, Jaros rules all. There are shrines varying from elaborate to very simple dotted around the perimeter, constructed by plan or by piety. A caravan will sacrifice and pray at a shrine before entering, and then again when they reach the other side in thanks, lest the god think them ungrateful for the gift. The god is said to be slightly more lenient with those who live their lives within the desert’s boundaries.

Jaros’ Veil-
Refers to either visions or the sun sickness that causes them, although some insist it is the desert or god himself playing tricks. Heat can do strange things to the human brain, and there have been many reports from caravans of people insisting there is an oasis where there is none. There are some sad cases where such victims have not been restrained and have wandered out into the desert, never to be seen again.
