  • Okay. That's fair enough, I suppose. In that case, take everything I said about feeding the name of the city to the devourer being a bad, neigh on suicidally terrible idea that runs counter to the Shan'iatu endgame and multiply it about 1000 times. Same basic fundamental problems, wider scale. And I still don't know where the reference is coming from.

    On the Scelesti thing, I'll own that the text is vague enough for many different interpretations. For my part I will always assume that Mummy is seeking to keep its game "in house" when it comes to their backstory- it makes...

It just sounds counter intuitive- if an ancient egyptian wanted to utterly destroy someone's soul, they would take a chisel and remove any reference to his name from his tomb and monuments. But while the Shan'iatu wanted to drag Irem into the underworld, they specifically wanted the city and...

  • "It’s said the sorcerer-priests never named the city, for no one has ever found or recalled its name, but later legends call it Irem (a term for a false paradise in a tongue long dead). It becomes known throughout the Nameless Empire as the City of Pillars."

    Okay, this is why I disagree with your answer. You said that the name for the old capital of the Nameless Empire was lifted from Arabian legends and adopted by the Arisen when referring to their old home. The text implies the opposite- that knowledge of the City of Pillars was preserved for six thousand years in one...
