Part 1: Geography


  Minervium is set up into two provinces. The upper and lower province. Minervium is in the south east part of the outer ring. It is a land full of many different types of land. From the deserts, to the grassland around the rivers to the mountains to the north.

Places of Note


  Pyramids are temples to the living god pharaohs. Pharaohs build pyramids as temples to themselves. They always try to build improved pyramids then their ancestors. Usually after a Pharaoh dies the construction of his pyramid is continued by his heir. Sometimes the heir and the pharaoh do not see eye to eye and his pyramid is never finished. This is very rare though. A lot can be told of the king by his pyramid. If the time was prosperous then the pyramid is grand if on the other hand the time was not prosperous then the pyramid will not be grand.

  Each pharaoh has a different idea of what he wants his pyramid to look like or have but they all still have the basics.

Secret Room

  There will be secret rooms in which the pharaoh’s body will be laid to rest. There will also be treasure placed in the room. The reason for the placing of the treasure is that the pharaoh wants to be the last person to ever possess these goods and to have them in the divine life. The goods are not always just expansive goods it is also rare and unusual goods.

  To get to these rooms one will have to go through traps magical and non-magical.

Temple Room

  This is where the people would go to praise the pharaoh after his death. This room could include a history of the pharaoh or pictures of him or her. These rooms varied a lot but they all had the same purpose of praising the pharaoh. The temple rooms usually have rooms near them for the temple priests. These include places for them to sleep and to entertain.

Part 5: History

Rein of Zoser 0-190

  The pumas begin their history with the birth of the first living god Zoser. Zoser was a great pharaoh who untied the pumas under his divine leadership. He was the greatest pharaoh to ever walk the planet. He civilized the whole kingdom. He invented rules and laws, calendars, and most of civilization.

Rein of Djoser 191-274

   Djoser was the son of Zoser. After his father died the empire went into chaos. The people did not think that their land would be safe in another person's hand. They did not know that Djoser was also a god because he was related to Zoser. Djoser made more exact rules then his father did he called them the 33 Laws of Zoser. These rules were rules his father enforced but never wrote down. The land prospered under the leadership of Djoser.

Rein of Imhotep 275-306

  Imhotep was the son of Djoser. Before he became pharaoh, he explored the world. He traveled up and down the coast along the outer ring. He was the first puma to see the mountains of Sulerium. He explored Hadrain and Cotta as well. He opened the land of Minervium to the trade with the world. When he became the pharaoh, the empire hit an economic boom. Imhotep organized trade routes and made Minervium the rulers of trade.

Rein of Snerfu 307-307

  Snerfu was a pharaoh for a very short time. He was the eldest son of Imhotep. He was only pharaoh for 62 days. His brother Khufu killed him.

Rein of Khufu 307-378

  Khufu was a great warrior. He conquered what is now Minervium Superior He was the greatest general that Minervium ever knew. He was jealous that his father picked his older brother to be the next pharaoh. Khufu therefore killed his brother so that he would become pharaoh. Khufu was a blood thirsty but fair pharaoh. He conquered much of what is today Acerrae. He was the first puma to enslave lizardmen. He always busied himself with war and did not worry much about raising an heir who would become a good pharaoh.

Rein of Bastet 379-396

   Bastet was the youngest son of Khufu. He was chosen to be pharaoh because he was the only son still living at the time of Khufu's death. All the rest of Khufu's son died in battle. Bastet was a weakling and was not warrior. Under his rule, the kingdom started to fall apart. He lost what is now Minervium Superior and lost all of Acerrae. No one traded with Minervium because of all the wars and Minervium's economics started to fall apart. Bastet was considered the worst pharaoh. He killed himself and his son became the pharaoh.

Rein of Geb 297-533

   Geb was a very smart and savvy pharaoh. He lived his life by his wits. He was able to talk to people and get what he wanted by guile. When he became pharaoh the kingdom was in ruins. People were not trading with them anymore and armies were trying to invade. Geb with his guile was able to stop the armies from invading and actually was able to convince the humanoids that were living in Minervium Superior to take the pumas as their leaders because it would be the best for them. He made peace with the lizardmen but still went there to get slaves by trading for slaves from tribes that were at war with each other and had taken prisoners. Geb in all effect had saved the kingdom.

Rein of Amun-Re 534-567

  Amun-Re was one of Geb’s middle sons. He was a very smart puma. From his travels with his father, he was able to learn the use of arcane magic, which no puma had ever known before. He became a powerful wizard and became an even more powerful pharaoh. He was wise beyond his years and was able to use his magic knowledge to help with his kingdom. He used his magic to build his pyramid. He also used his magic to build the Minervium empire to new heights by using his magic. He turned Minervium into a place of beauty.

Rein of Thoth 568-599

  Thoth was a famous merchant before he became pharaoh. He explored to lands that were not located on any of the tree rings of known world. He explored to far off lands. He brought back with him new and exciting treasures. When he became pharaoh, he was no longer able to travel the world. One day he became bored with the kingdom and decided that he could take an adventure in to more uncharted territories. On his adventure, his ship sank and he died.

Rein of Renenet 600-691

   Before Thoth died he was never able to have a male heir. This caused a problem among the people of Minervium. They did not think that a woman should become pharaoh. They decided that there should be a contest for who would become the pharaoh. The battle went on and there was a victor. When the victor won the victor took their helmet and it was the Renenet the daughter of the Thoth. After besting all the people in battle they knew that she was worthy of being the next pharaoh.

Providence of Atlantis

   Minervium was not conquered like most of the world by Atlantis. Minervium was instead absorbed into the empire of Atlantis. The pharaoh is still the pharaoh and most of the society was not changed. The only battling that occurred was the battling between the two brothers and when Atlantis came into the aid of the "true pharaoh of Minervium".

Part 6: Religion

  Pumas worship the pharaohs of old. In Puma society, the pharaohs are considered to be living gods. When the pharaohs ascend to their kingdom in the sky they are able to grant spells to priests. Living pharaohs usually have people who worship them as gods but at this point the pharaohs can not grant spells to anyone.


  From the sea rose a great flower. In this flower was earth. In this flower were great kingdoms and people. The greatest of the kingdoms and people were the pumas. They were the greatest because they were ruled by a god who lived among them called Zoser. When Zoser died, he became a god and protected the people of Minervium.
