world of Ala ad-Din, better known as Aladdin! Thief, gambler, liar,
and cheat, Aladdin''s reckless soul falls under the eye of
the sorcerer Qassim, who has spent his life scouring the sands for
the Dreaming Jewel. This lost relic of shattering power will enable
Qassim to steal the magic of the Djinn of the Lamp and reshape the
world in his own malicious design. But to do so, he requires a
