Another word for Shadowmane. The Desert Storm Banner was first raised in the War of Walled Treachery and is woven from the hair of Alkar sorceresses and the tail hails of Alkan Steeds. Once it is raised only victory has ever caused it to be lowered. The standard has never been taken in any battle and it contains powerful magical properties. It is certain that it has the power to summon forth the wind, sun and hail at the desire of the wielder. It is also suggested that it has mind affecting properties due to the Alkar people fanatical devotion to it and to Shadowmane when typically they are so divided.
