The Stockwood Scrolls
Calimshan is a land in the southwest of Faerûn obsessed with wealth and unimpressed by magic, Its people are heirs to an old empire founded by genies, and now fear such creatures and ban them from their lands. Familiar with displays of magic, they see the Art as any other skill that can be learned. Some say the blood of the efreet runs in some Calishites, giving them sorcerous powers and a talent for fire magic.
Calimshan is renowned for its chauvinism, exotic markets, thieves’ guilds, decadent harems, desert landscape, and wealthy ruling class, as well as its enormous population and many slaves,
