For centuries now, the other powers of the Inner Sea have disregarded Osirion as an impotent nation long past its prime. Osirion wouldn’t have it any other way. Since the Ruby Prince ascended the ancestral throne, Osirion has been gathering its power and preparing to make a bid for supremacy in the Inner Sea region. Appearing as an austere man in crimson robes and simple leather sandals, Amenopheus, known as the Sapphire Sage, subtly guides the Osirion faction. Officially the advisor to Dremdhet Salhar, an obese Osirian nobleman on Absalom’s Grand Council, Amenopheus takes pains to make sure few suspect that he has the councilman firmly under his control.
Goal: Power through Knowledge
In bygone ages, the pharaohs of Ancient Osirion created wonders beyond reason. They concocted potent arcane plagues to destroy their enemies and erected mighty monuments capable of entrapping the souls of deities. Let the other factions jockey for meager political fancy or table scraps like favorable economic sanctions, Osirians say. This faction is interested in rediscovering the powerful artifacts of ancient Osirion and preventing their theft by aggressive powers, such as Cheliax. Once these artifacts are returned to their rightful hands, the glories of the ancient days will herald the rise of a new age of dominance for Osirion.
