Abadius, 4714

Initiate of Osirion's Mysteries,
As you no doubt recall, our dismissal from the Ruby Prince's inner circle made it possible for us to research the organization known as the Jeweled Sages, a society that dates back to Osirion's golden age millennia ago. These men and women sensed the decline of their kingdom and began to gather the relics and wisdom that might otherwise be lost to the ages. Each sage carried a jewel in which he or she stored memories and secrets of the past, passing them to chosen successors when a member inevitably passed away. Our desert homeland's tumultuous past scattered the Jeweled Sages to the winds, but I am certain that if they were still united as in ages past, they would praise your accomplishments over these past months—while they valued the wisdom of the whole, they also honored the initiative and excellence of the individual.
Yet are they truly gone, and I the last? We recently learned that someone calling herself the Diamond Sage has lived in central Osirion for years, and if her agents are any metric, she is as interested in meeting us as I am to finally meet another of my order. What's more, I have divined that several other sages' jewels are also buried nearby, though I do not know their exact locations. Because my reputation in Osirion is still stained by last year's developments, I am sending you, my loyal agents, to find these jewels, locate the Diamond Sage, and arrange for us all to meet formally and determine the future of our fractured order. I am not certain quite what to expect when we finally meet the Diamond Sage, and I trust I will have your insights to aid my own judgment of the matter.
The Pathfinder Society has been most generous in providing me a home and offering its support in our endeavors. Even now I am working with Venture-Captain Norden Balentiir to orchestrate a formal Pathfinder expedition to the trade city of Eto, where I hope you can pick up the trail of my elusive colleague. I owe the Society much for its aid. When our business near Eto is done, let us remember your fellow Pathfinders and the equally monumental task they face to the north.

For the Jeweled Sages,
Amenopheus, the Sapphire Sage

The Pathfinder Society Organized Play campaign continues the Year of the Demon, its fifth season of Pathfinder RPG adventures. Keep the words of Amenopheus in mind, and be on the lookout for opportunities to help Osirion succeed in its objectives. When the time comes, ensure that you represent Osirion proudly in Pathfinder Society Scenario 5–12: Destiny of the Sands, Part 1: A Bitter Bargain, Pathfinder Society Scenario 5–15: Destiny of the Sands, Part 2: Race to Seeker's Folly and Pathfinder Society Scenario 5–16: Sanctum of the Sages.

No worries, Menny,

Me an' Mister Beaky will be happy to go travelin' into the desert t'find this 'Diamond Sage'

By t'way, are you maried? Maybe if the Diamond Sage is really a she, and not one of those strange beardless male elves, the two of you could find happiness with each other, and t'en the blessins o'Erastil will shine on y'both.

Hmmmm. Perhaps some of my Pahmet brothers may have some additonal knowledge concerning this topic. I will have to look into it.

A heavily built man with a stoic, stone-like countenance and wrapped in greyish-brown traditional Osiriani robes approaches and sits silently, gesturing his seneschal forward. The somewhat thin servant steps forward, and speaks softly and politely, but his voice carries clearly across the room.

"Master Amenopheus, Qa'Pelos the Risen brings you his greetings and lauds you for your long and storied service tot he throne and our nation.
While Master Qa'Pelos is pleased to hear of the great possibilities that lay before us in recovering more of the lost histories of Ancient Osirion, he is concerned about loyalties.
The Risen are known to serve our nation and his eminence Pharaoh Khemet III, the Ruby Prince. But, given recent events, and the banishment of your most honored personage from the Pharaoh's court, Master Qa'Pelos is concerned that there is a conflict of interest in serving the throne, the nation, the Old Gods, and the Sapphire Sage.
Can you, or anyone else, give us assurance or relief in knowledge that if any amongst the Risen stand alongside the Pathfinder Society and the Jeweled Sages that they shall not also suffer the same unfortunate banishment that has befallen you?"

The Seneschal retreats to his master's side, and Qa'Pelos the Risen sits stoically in near silence, with very little effecting his stone-like visage. He quietly murmurs, "Verily." and maintains his composure.

A dwarven man dressed in good clothes steps forward, "Only the Ruby Prince can answer your questions without doubt." Montgomery pauses for a moment before continuing, "But I would ask this one question. Has the Ruby Prince given you an order to abandon Amenopheus or his cause? If not, then as the Ruby Prince is a reasonable ruler, it would make sense that no action would be taken against you, until such time as you were to disobey a direct order." With that Montgomery steps back.
