Character Creation Guidelines
For the purposes of the Mummy’s Mask Adventure Path, it doesn’t matter where your character is from. The nation has seen thousands of foreign-born adventurers stream into its lands. Some are only from across the border in Katapesh, Thuvia, or the Mwangi Expanse, while others come from such distant lands ofUstalav, the River Kingdoms, or even the Lands of the Linnorm Kings. It’s also very likely that characters in this Adventure Path are natives ofOsirion, and are participating in the campaign to revive the glory of their nation.
While most of Osirion’s citizens are humans, other races also call the nation home. Of the humans, most are Garundi, with the second most populous ethnicity being Keleshite. Since the opening of Osirion’s borders to foreign exploration, Taldans, Chelaxians, and other Avistani ethnicities have flowed into the country. Osirion also contains a sizable population of native Pahmet dwarves. These dwarves, also sometimes called sand dwarves, live in small communities in the Brazen Peaks along the nation’s southern border. Osirion’s cities contain a good-sized population of halflings, who have long served the ancient pharaohs. Some continue to do so to this day. Elves, half-elves, and half-ores are minorities in Osirion, but the spirit of adventure and exploration brings them to the nation in great numbers. Genies and elementals can be found in the deep deserts, and as such, tribes of geniekind can be found throughout Osirion.
