The Arabian Peninsula
Life in the Arabian Peninsula can be tough, but I'm here to help you out. Here in the year 600 AD there is plenty of things to worry about, but lets focus on surviving first.
If you look closely at the picture above, you will find that the only water source is the ocean. However, there is plenty of water inland, found in Oases. Many towns are near an oases, so you should probably find one and stick to it. Or if you'd like, you can build your own house with your own plot of land. The land is always fertile, and there is plenty of resources to work with.
As you can see, there is plenty of water, making the land fertile. There is also plenty of trees, and a house to show that those trees are very useful. They can also be used for shade or to support something like a hammock.
