Busiris is a colony of a distant, almost fabled, Empire. It is a melting pot where the high culture & ancient magic of the Empire meets a new continent full of promise & danger. Here the Old Gods compete with the Wild Spirit Lords of the interior & their feral magic.
Being a place of both peril & fabulous riches it attracts the best & worst men of the Empire. Ambitious Princes, devious Priests & greedy Merchants rub shoulders with Mercenaries, Adventurers & Tomb Robbers. It is a political and physical battleground for the great noble houses and the temples to play out their ambitions.
Everyone here is out to make their fortune & advance their destiny far from the stultifying & oppressive ‘harmony’ of the Empire proper. Intrigue, conspiracy & betrayal are as common as the rain is not.
This RPG takes you to the frontier of an ancient civilization where nothing is as it seems. It has Bronze Age technology, but with pistols and muskets. A heady mixture of Ancient Egypt, the Arabian Nights and 16th century yo-ho-ho!
