The Menaphite Empire Rises

Shortly after Al Kharid was defeated by the Kingdom of Misthalin, King Aeran visited the divine pharaoh. In a grand gesture the king of Misthalin gifted the lands of the old emirate to the menaphites. Pharaoh Anuket is wasting no time in sending an army with herself at the helm to Al Kharid. Citizens are being watched carefully as reeducation of the kharidians began. Anuket now prepares to assault the Abbey of St. Elspeth which she considers a stain on the desert.


Desert Relations:

Misthalin has entered a military and trade alliance with the Menaphite Empire.

.. . Al Kharid . ..
.. ..



Region Overview:

The city of Al Kharid rests between Misthalin and the southern expanses of the desert; as such, it maintains a special status as one of the two gateways into the Kharidian desert. Its position makes it remarkably defensible, as its gates rest beyond narrow passageways through its stony cliffs and great walls preserve the city itself. Although the people of the city are known to worship all gods of the Pantheon, Het is revered in Al Kharid and the city's famous combat arena is testiment to this. Al Kharid is a wealthy city due to its fortunate position, its commitment to the Emir's predecessor, Caliph Tumuh Khalam's shrewd trade and economic policies, and the world-renowned Bazaar of Al Kharid.


Military Overview:

Janissaries of Al Kharid - The professional defense force of Al Kharid, Janissaries are tasked with the defense of the city, to enforce the law and ensure order, and to protect the Emir of Al Kharid. Recruitment of Janissaries relies on conscription of those of common birth; it is mandatory that all citizens of Al Kharid enter the Janissary corps at the age of sixteen to serve a minimum of two years, where then they may choose to volunteer for further length of service. Nobility of Al Kharid are exempt from mandatory conscription and may join the Janissaries voluntarily.

.. . Menaphos . ..
.. ..



Region Overview:

The lands under Menaphos are wrapped in legend and rich culture. The pride of the Menaphite people knows no bounds. Menaphos is host to many nobles who try to get into the Pharaoh's good graces and rise to power. The port and merchant districts also host many from around the world, from eastern merchants to emissaries from the world around. The lands around the twin cities are also steeped in mystery as old cities are discovered and lost daily to the shifting sands. The priesthoods in this region hold much power. They often send many menaphite adventurers out to retrieve relics of old. Woe be to any noble who makes an enemy of the priesthoods.


Military Overview:

The Imperial Guard are the mainstay of the menaphite military. These elite troops are well trained and well equipped. They also police the cities of the Menaphite Empire as well. Due to their smaller size in times of war militia men will be conscripted to bolster the Imperial Guard.

The Imperial Magistrate is the sister organization to the guard. They have a close relationship with the priesthoods as they work in tandem to preserve knowledge and keep the magic of old alive. They also bolster the guard with wondrous golems called shabti.

The Imperial Navy is the last piece of the menaphite military. Many captains in the navy are rumored to be ex pirates and it is rumored the menaphites work with pirates to ensure they are the best source of trade goods from the eastern lands.

Though not technically military the Black Ibis serve as protectors of sacred places and counterspies. The group is shrouded in mystery and serves the pharaoh directly.

.. Amascut Cultists ..
.. ..



Faction Overview:

Outcasts. Exiles. Fallen. The cultists who follow Amascut are reviled and feared all across the desert. Sometimes referred to as "Devourers" these men and women carry out atrocities and subterfuge willingly or unwillingly in Amascuts' service. There are many cults throughout the desert and for the most part are united in purpose(Though some fight from time to time). Whenever some great catastrophe befalls the desert it is usually Amascut who is to blame. However due to the work of the fallen goddess and her cultists the great powers of the desert often blame each other or outsiders for their woes.


Assets and Strength Overview:

The cultists strength fluctuates greatly. Though lately major operations have been purged from most of the major cities. However they still have strongholds everywhere. The devourers have agents planted in very few noble houses. The greatest assets the cults have however lie with their leaders. Many have been gifted with devourer beasts. Abominations that consume souls for Amascut. Time will tell if the cults rise to threaten the great powers once again, or if they simply manipulate and pit them against each other for their accursed goddess.
