Ars Magica - Lands of the Nile
There was a time when the people of Egypt worshipped animal-headed gods and built mighty tombs at the command of their pharaoh. That time ended 1,500 years ago.
Now, Egypt is a Muslim nation, ruled by a sultan from the new city of Cairo. The Guild of Seekers have the sultan's blessing to dig up the land's ancient treasures. To the south, Nubia is a Christian country, protected from the Muslim armies by an ancient treaty. The empire of Ethiopia is resurgent, its Christian ruler inspired by his pilgrimage to Jerusalem.
