Greetings my fellow Pathfinders - and great welcome to those who hold in their hearts the River Sphinx and the Sands.
Long have I been gone from the home waters of the great Delta. Long have I striven to preserve the Pharaoh and especially the interests of his people.
Throughout the waterways of the Inner Sea I have sought to return that which was stolen from our lands, whether seizing treasures hidden in the Blackros Museum, or returning lost sheep from far-flung lands like the River Kingdoms or Kaer Maga. Now I come home to find a sickness at our heart - a temptress leading away from the path of service.
Pursuit of knowledge is worthwhile, yet is not an end unto itself. To what end will this new influence put it? Is not the most depraved soul in the Inner Sea also leading Pathfinders with the claim of seeking knowledge for its own sake? Will jewels distract you and lead you astray?
The past years have not been easy - nor should they be. To serve the Pharaoh and his people with praise is worthy. To serve them while spurned is the true test of loyalty. Do not let go your honor so easily! Stay united under the flag of Osirion - for its people, for its neighbors, and for an understanding of the Past in its many wonders!
May Gozreh enrich the waters of our lives with her own, and may his thunder deafen those who will not hear the call of our ancestors.
