...that had some pictures of the different types of desert clothing?  I've been looking all over the damned internet for a picture of an aba and I can't find one.  (Yes, I tried Google.)  :P

Here's a crappy pitcure of an aba.  I once looked up a whole bunch of pictures of Arabic clothing to write up some items, but this is all I could find now.  It seems to be all gone.  I blame the government.

An aba and a bisht are the same things - the traditional robes Arabian men walk around in.

IRL, an abaya is a woman's aba.  However, in Arm, an abaya is a longer sleeved aba, or something to that effect.

Quote from: "Armageddon Documentation"

Djellabah: A long shirt, approximately knee-length, with wide sleeves.  A nomads' favored desert wear. Usually made of cotton or wool and trimmed heavily with ornamental braid. City folks have adopted this look also, adapting it to adhere to their fashions.

If you pretend that the shirt is a lot longer (but still tight, this IS Allanaki fashion) and with slightly wider (and maybe a bit longer) sleeves, then you basically have it.  Though this one is a less ornate one...just look for a knee-long, fairly tight (not skin-tight) shirt with wide sleeves that's made of a very strong fabric, and this is basically it.

Varak:You tell the mangy, pointy-eared gortok, in sirihish: "What, girl? You say the sorceror-king has fallen down the well?"
Ghardoan:A pitiful voice rises from the well below, "I've fallen and I can't get up..."

I knew there was a reason I was in love with you, Barzalene.
I think we might need to change World Discussion to Armchair Zalanthan Anthropology.
