A very interesting game, and not just because it does a better-than-average job in introducing the setting! It's got some interesting mechanics as well. The rules for telling a story are a touch of brilliance in a setting inspired where 1001 Nights are an important cultural artefact!
And it's free, so why don't you all download it and see for yourself?
This game seems like a lot of fun and even if you never use the game as shown, there are a lot of interesting concepts (particularly how negotiations are handled) that would be interesting to import into other game systems and settings. The most surprising thing is that this game is free! I'd expect to at least spend 10$ for a pdf of Nights of the Crusades. You really cant go wrong downloading this game.
a very interesting game in an era shrouded in mystery to modern eyes.
