Salt for Salt
The Oasis Trail
A mixed coffee house and map store, The Oasis Trail is run by the lame Idris al-Khar, a tall, bald man with a number of fine canes – which he collects. Idris acts as a go-between for guides and caravan guards, and those looking to hire them, and often hosts clients looking for work at his café. Idris used to be a guide himself, and many of the finely-wrought maps in his store are partially based off his own travels.
Idris is a good friend of Mendiv al-Souk, and they often meet for coffee, hookah, or games of skill.
