For the player's purposes, this is probably too much detail.  So I just told them "due to political turmoil, there has been a bonanza of tomb-raiding along the Nilus, and your characters are just here to try to get a piece of the action." I had two players this session: Normie and Brigandine.  Normie's first character was "Gren" a cleric of Nauvirus, and Brigandine's first character was "Alchus" a fighter with t
