Game SystemDnD 5e
ThemeÆgyptian Adventures
FlavourHeroic Fantasy
Plot Summary
right-aligned image
Anubis' Needle stands proud in Saka's necropolis, greeting mourners as they come to entomb their loved ones in the famous burial site. Seventeen hundred years ago, while the Anubian priest Nefru Shepes began the process of rebuilding the city, along with sealing away the dead part of the city from the living and consecrating the necropolis, a stone from the heavens streaked thru the sky, plunging into the cool waters of the river Sphinx. Nefru Shepes decreed the celestial event was an omen of favor from the Master of Graves, and he ordered workers to retrieve the stone from the riverbed. Stoneworkers sculpted the meteorite into a capstone for an obelisk to be set in the city' new necropolis as a symbol of Anubis' blessing upon Saka.

The adventure begins in the city of Saka, where the Asp and Crook Rivers converge to create the River Sphinx in southeastern Ægyptus. The PCs begin in Saka and are acquainted with one another. With the necropolis open by royal decree, the priests of the local temple of Anubis have been tasked with assigning sites for exploration by adventuring companies. Registering is a simple process; there are no background checks or special fees. A priest simply records the name of the company and the names of its members.

I like the setting, I haven’t seen many games that use Ancient Egyptian mythology as a basis to create a game. I’ll start work on a character.

I’m assuming you mean the deadline to be March 5th and not Feb 5th?

You are right.

Waiting to next Feb 5th would be a long time.

I'm intrigued by the chance to play one of the races from Amonkhet!
Is the game structured basically as a big dungeon crawl, clearing the temples?
What would you say is the intended mix of Combat/Exploration/Role Playing?

Sounds interesting to me too; I will throw my Nemes into the ring

Khnurn
left-aligned image

Name: Knhurn -- meaning Reborn of the Sun
Race: Aven (Hawk Headed)
Class: Warlock (Djinni)
Background: Urchin

Appearance/Backstory: Previously a skinny, pre-teen street brat, Khnurn was following the magnificent adventurers coming to Saka clad in their gleaming armors or rich woven robes. Seeing a small token fall and roll into the dirt, he quickly and surreptitiously scooped it up. Drifting into a daydream of being one of those amazing beings, he heard a voice in his head, "Is that what you wish?"

"Oh yes, I want to be an adventurer, to do magic, to fly . . . " his imagination soaring.

And, to the young urchin's wonderment and delight, he found himself marching in the adventuring party he had seen earlier. Only he was no longer a scrawny beggar boy, now he was a tall, half man-half hawk, with gleaming wings of bronze and gold feathers and yellow eyes that glowed in the sun. And, he had magical powers! And the other adventurers all knew him; he was one of them! Maybe the djinni was bored and looking for more entertainment, maybe there were conditions of servitude, but for him, the gift of the djinni was a dream come true and he would be eternally grateful.

Role Play: The Paladin of Ra threw back his cloak, his armor gleaming bronze around the golden sun symbol in his chestpiece. Khnurn stalked up to him, his tall feathered body erect and his yellow eyes gleaming in his impassive face, one cruelly barbed talon reaching out to tap the Paladin on the displayed symbol of his God. Opening his beak, Khnurn's harsh voice rasped out in tones of beaten metal:

"Dang dude, that's sick. . . . (giggle). That is just so kewl. "

Application
left-aligned image

Name: Ahmose
Race: Leonin
Class: Paladin of Bast
Background: Outlander

Appearance: Ahmose has a thin mane to match his thin wiry frame. He is small for a Leonin, somewhat the runt of his litter, however he has intelligent eyes. Black pools that prove while he may not be the biggest in stature, he has found other ways to impressively make up for his size.

Backstory: Ahmose almost didn't survive his birth, being the small, weak, runt that he was; However, he must have had something special residing within him for Bast decided to spare is life. As he struggled to grow amongst his litter, he always felt a burning voice inside of him, a voice that taught him tricks to gain food, told him the tactics to survive his fights, and this voice even told him "as long as you can prove your worth by surviving this harsh upbringing, you will be rewarded with strength and power... I promise you Ahmose" He did not know the owner of this voice at first, though eventually he met a priest who told him that he bore the mark of Bast, queen of cats, and master of war. That day he finally knew what purpose his life was to have. He decided one night that this was the meaning he had been looking for, the reason he had been able to hear that strange voice...it must have been Bast calling to him. That next morning, he found his way to one of her temples, and dedicated his life to Bast's service. The head priestess, seeing this outward display of devotion, took him in, clothed, and outfit him, and began his training in the ways of the Paladin.

Combat and Exploration heavy bt there are role playing opportunities.

Eventually the characters will visit other locales.

you didn't post what you were looking for in your advertisement, so I didn't really know how much you wanted me to put. Since penbeast's app is marked complete Ill just use his as a template.

jabar al-mufti
right-aligned image

Name: jabar al-mufti
Race: khenra(solo born)
Class: rogue
Background: street rat
traits when given the chance i eat like a pig and tend not to follow social ettiquite
i ask a lot of questions
ideal the low will eventually be mighty and the mighty will fall. this is the order of things.
bonds No one else should have to endure the hardships I've been through.
flaws Gold seems like a lot of money to me, and I'll do just about anything for more of it.
Backstory: jabar was born on the streets of saka. His father was a soldier though fell in battle and his mother was left without support. She went to the pharoh to ask for compensation for her husband but was told to leave by the guards before reaching the pharoh. His mother worked as a dancer and peddler for coin. This never ended well with his mother sometimes being gone for days. He never felt fear though just knowledge that he would need to find food for himself. He would do this at first from picking from the irrigation canals before learning to steal from markets. The food carts were much nicer though when he found silver he felt like a king.

He worked with some gangs trying to find his place but the feeling of missing part of himself never left. He gained knowledge of the streets and how to survive. He found his place as a pickpocket. Often he would be beaten for the crimes he committed or blamed for committing but having a group to call his own and fill the void felt right. He learned to move through the city and roof jump. His lack of fear proved useful though wisdom came later. He thanked Anubis for looking away with the knowledge that should things go bad he might guide his soul to his father.

When the option for real work without needing background checks was jabar's chance to escape and become someone his father would be proud of.

Interesting! I plan to post an application. Are druids allowed? Coming up with what a druid in in an Aegypt setting would be like would be a challenge. A cleric or paladin would be very interesting too.

A Druid would probably worship Geb, the personification of earth.
