[ERROR] No.11795940 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

Working on a quasi-Persian desert themed adventure and I'm just looking for some inspiration.

How's about we start up a desert-fantasy art thread? Arabian, Indian, fuckin'... gypsy, whatever. I don't care. Sand, scarves, scimitars. Post it.

I'll be rifling through my massive and unsorted art folder for some more content of my own.

I don't know, man. I just can't picture it.

I mean, there was once an old-time image of arabia as being noble scimitar fighters and sultry, busty, athletic women clad in only a few sheer scarves.

Now, all I can imagine is crazy bearded zealots and women that look like they got stuck under a collapsed tent.

as such, I just can't suspend my belief enough to imagine characters like >>11795974 >>11795949 , or >>11795940. I can't even imagine it having been possible in the past. Not with Islam's hold on the area.

Sultry nomadic desert princesses may have existed in some form or another, in the past.. I mean, there must be some sort of inspiration for the idea... However, I just can't imagine it anymore.

Somebody hasn't heard of the Ottomans.

Or that Saudi Arabia had (emphasis on had) a better track record for women's rights than the United Kingdom did in the Victorian age (India also did the whole repealing of women's rights, so did China around the turn of the Common era.). It's just that most people associate Islam with Saudi Arabian Islam (Wahhabism), which is neck and neck with Evangelicalism. Most of the other countries aren't as bad as the Saudi Wahhabis, and there are even a couple that are quite nice for Middle Eastern Women.

Finally, can you say, "harem?''

As if you see still armor clad knights, robed druids, and court jesters ambling down the street in any modern European city?

Also, Persia (Iran) is hardly some super fundamentalist/conservative Muslim theocracy.

It would be neck and neck if the Evangelicals found that one of their parishes were sitting on one of the largest stocks of oils in the world. They're fucking nuts, but they don't have that much concentrated power.

Crazy Shiite Theocracy & co. making the state its bitch aside, the Persians are quite secular. Hell, the average person over there loves the US (and most of the other Muslim countries hate Iran for fucking with their distinction of Church and State. Yes, funnily enough, the Saudi monarchy believes that the Ulema can only advise and carry out the law. They do not run things directly. 9/11 helped reinforce this after Osama started targeting them in 2003.)

Despite the opinion /d/ may have give you, most of japan is not about sex, much less deviancy. That's merely what's most appealing to americans. There's no reason for them to have sex, and at least two for them not to, so they don't.
