Overview[edit | edit source]
The Amenti are formed when a tem-akh chooses a dead or dying mortal whose soul is in some way flawed or incomplete. Sometimes the tem-akh chooses poorly. When newly joined Amenti are brought before the Judges of Ma'at for the first time, those found unworthy of the gift of immortality are usually destroyed. But occasionally, the Judges simply excise an additional piece of the mortal's soul in order to render them fit for immortality, and force the tem-akh to fill in the gap. In the process, the tem-akh loses its independent memories and identity.
Udja-sen thus do not gain the benefit of ancient wisdom from their tem-akh, which makes it harder for them to integrate into any group of Amenti. They are also easily recognizable as Judged Ones and face prejudice for it, which is a bitter pill to swallow. Still, their outsider status can give them perspective that the other Amenti lack, and they may find their own unique way to serve Ma'at.
Purpose and Liability[edit | edit source]
Like all Amenti, the Udja-sen have both a purpose, in whose service their can draw on the strength of their tem-akh, and a liability, which represents a weakness of their creation. While an Udja-sen may have started with any type of tem-akh, the wound dealt to their joined soul by the Judges of Ma'at means they have more in common with each other than with other Dynasties who might happen to share their tem-akh type.
Purpose[edit | edit source]
Because of the wound in their soul, the Udja-sen find it easier to absorb Sekhem, even outside the Lands of Faith. Whenever they replenish their Sekhem they may add a number of points equal to their Balance rating. They may also transfer that number of points to Sekhem to another Amenti.
Liability[edit | edit source]
A wound is still a wound; any time an Udja-sen spends Sekhem, even transferring it to another mummy, they deal themselves one level of bashing damage per point of Sekhem spent.
