A Tale in the Desert is a Massive Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Game (MMO) set in ancient Egypt. The game focuses on crafting and trading, mixed with strong social challenges.

You can download the game client for free.

After you've played 24 hours, we'll ask if you'd like to subscribe for $11.95 per month. Longer term subscriptions are available, see plans in game. The game is only available on a month by month basis due to PNC First Data restrictions. I am working on other payment methods now.
