Empire of Dust




Ancient and immortal, the Ahmunite pharaohs are driven by a willpower that conquered death itself centuries past, and are now almost unstoppable in their unquenchable wrath. To the sound of golden trumpets, the pharaohs roar their proclamations from parched throats: the great kingdoms will be restored! Sweeping forth from their desert catacombs in their hordes, these tireless warriors will conquer all.

For centuries, the Ahmunites had long been directionless. The pharaohs and cursed priests had retreated to the safety of their tombs, leaving their skeleton legions to stand dormant, and guardian slaves to toil aimlessly. Now, they had awoken. Kings of old burst forth from the dunes on the gleaming chariots they had been buried with. By their sides, the high priests began great incantations to bring the skeletons back
to un-life, and return lost souls to the mummified remains of ancient warlords. Skeletal giants and revenants dragged themselves from the sand, ready to fight for Ahmun once again.
