The Egyptians found themselves ruled by a foreign power, the Setiu, more commonly known as the Hyskos. They had found their way into the fertile Delta region of Egypt and settled there. Over time, they slowly removed all authority from what was already a weak Egyptian government. The entire invasion was achieved through subtle political and economic coercion, and was relatively bloodless. They became known as the Fifteenth Dynasty.
During the mid-Seventeenth Dynasty the Setiu had been secure in Egypt for over 100 years. They ruled from the northern capital, The House of the Leg, Het-Uart, known also as Avaris. In Southern Egypt lived a group of Theban Princes who would claim descent from the last true King. These men would eventually revolt, ushering in a new epoch of immense power and prosperity known as the Eighteenth Dynasty.
"The Lord of the Two Lands" Trilogy by Pauline Gedge was our inspiration to write about this era, but members do not have to have read the books to be able to enjoy this rich setting. And events are open to change from the course of the novels, based on the character's actions.
