Anyone from or knowledgeable about Iran/Armenia/Kurdistan/Azerbaijan have any stories/experiences/legends to share?
I'm in a tabletop RPG set in the region and am looking for ideas. Naturally, the "Towers of Silence" from Zoroastrian times could be spun in a creepy way and I know about the legends/creatures you can find on Wikipedia like the Simurgh, but I'd like to dig a little deeper.
We're using nWoD Mortals since the game takes place in 1999.
I guess there is an RPG called Zenobia about the pre-Islamic Levant that has a Persia expansion, but I haven't read or tried it.
