In the dawn
of time there was only the ocean. One day, an egg floated to the surface the
sea. It opened and Ra, the father of the Egyptian
gods, stepped forth. Ra beget two children, Shu and Tefnut. These two newborn
gods were lifted up to become the atmosphere and clouds. Like Ra, they quickly
brought forth two of their own children - Geb, who formed the solid earth, and
Nut, who became the stars and the night sky. Ra was pleased with his work, and
was master of them all.
Geb and Nut later had children of their own. They had three sons (Set, Osiris, and Horus) and two daughters (Isis and Nephythys). In an effort to stop them from producing many children without his permission, Ra ordered Shu to move between Geb and his sister, breaking their embrace and preventing the creation of any additional gods.
surrounded themselves with a force of slaves, called catfolk. This
force gained more and more power, until, taking advantage of yet another power-struggle
within the royal family, they appointed one of their own members to the throne claiming they were anoited by Bast herself en ruled by catfolk pharohs who have successfully defended and expanded their state and pulled the government
of their different lands under one centralized administration. Perhaps their
single most important achievement has been to defeat an Orc army and so put an end to its hitherto unstoppable expansion.
Under the catfolk, Egypt has continued to be the chief centre of Arabic civilization. However, recurrent plagues have reduced her population, and Timurís conquest of Syria was a major blow to catfolk power. Raiding by gnoll tribes has also become a problem.

Duat is the underworld, where the sun traveled from west to east during the night and where dead souls were judged by Anubis, using a feather, representing Truth. Souls which were weighted down by sin were eaten by Ammit.
