Very interesting. The name "Osiris" could be a stygianeered version of the name "Asura"... or am I pushing it too far ?

* Hardened Mercenary
* Assassin
* Military Officer

I don't think there was a stance. In my opinion, the Acheronians are not in actual control of the cult, although they have appreciable influence on it. They probably helped Xaltotun with whatever resources they had at hand (including some of the cult's) though.

Well, a (very) simple way to determine who's the winner would be to attribute a military power score to each side (based on the number and quality of the troops + terrain + other factors), roll power +1D20 for each side. Better result wins (more or less quickly according to the margin).

The group "In the Nursery" also has some interesting pieces. I use the "Engel" album.

This would work perfectly but hand the GM a great deal of power in interpreting the results of combat and pretty much eliminate the need for NPC details such as skills, feats, hitpoints and the like, except as general concepts for the GM to consider when arbitrarily levying the outcome of a fight, ...

Perhaps the cult is simply insignificant to them. They pose no direct threat to the leadership of Setites in Stygia and seem unable to stop plots of the Black Ring abroad. If you like conspiracies, perhaps the cult of Ibis is so impotent because they realize such evidence exists and could be used t...

Re: Is the Cult of Ibis hiding something? (Possible Spoilers

I wouldn't be surprised if there are left over Acheronians who worship or are part of the Cult of Ibis and still worship Set in secret. Well, seems to me the struggle between the "ally with Hyborian" liners and the Acheronian old guard can be a nice way to throw my PCs into the cult's politics. May...

OK, you're right. My bad.

Correction : Ibis (or his cult) seems less likely to strike down on Joe Stygian than Set or his fellas. Therfore, Set gets more worship. :wink:

You express it better than I did but be cautious Damien or you'll bring the wrath of kyorou, the great mathematician, on you. Actually, it is not mathematics but rather semantics.

Nice ideas, Vincent.

Although, I'd add that Ibis seems to be a somewhat intellectual and distant divinity, thus being understandably less popular than Set among Stygian commoners.

Again, it is not because common folk says that a powerful being is a god that it truly is. Well, the definition of a word evolves according to the way this word is used.
