Like sands through an hourglass…
“To many who call the Inner Seas region home, the death of the God Aroden is considered ancient history. But even by that date, Osirion was an ancient land having risen up, fallen, and risen again many times over. At over 8000 years old, the lands of Osirion are blanketed by the sands of time, with powerful eldritch secrets and vast riches laying just beneath the sun-blistered surface. Seeing a chance to enrich the coffers of Osirion, the current Pharoah, The Ruby Prince Khemet III has ordered that modern Osirion open its vaults and tombs to outsiders for the first time in centuries for research and study. As such, many of these lost treasures and secrets are now emerging — some being more troublesome than others.
Hakotep I, a now forgotten pharoah, was robbed upon his burial; a secret sect took his heart and funerary mask, each containing a portion of his soul. Betrayed and denied a chance to pass into the afterlife, Hakotep existed in a state between life and death for millenia. However, the recent discovery of one of those lost soul fragments has allowed the trapped pharoah to once again work in this world to redress the wrongs committed against him, and a cult worshiping him as a god-king grows in the heart of Osirion.
Can your group of heroes brave terrible guardians, foul cults and the burning sands of the desert to stop the rebirth of this ancient tyrant? Or will the sands of time simply cover up your corpses as they have for 8000 years, leaving a future generation of adventurers to ponder what strange tales your brittle bones will tell?
Welcome to Osirion. Welcome to The Mummy’s Mask
