Re: Nile Empire Preview #5 - Amaatism

So the "bad guy" gods were successful in their murder of Osiris and tore him apart and he wasn't put back together again. Ok great but Osiris dying and being resurrected by Isis is where (mythically at least) mummies come from. The Nile Empire certainly has mummies so where does the myth c...
