Hikmah

A nation founded shortly after Ethos, on the ruins of old Thoth, much of their history is tied to Aristotle. Fragments of Thothian philosophy are said to have inspired earlier Sophian thinkers, who eventually returned under the banner of Aristotle and conquered the region. The nation of Thoth was greatly influenced by Sophian philosophy and began to follow it, however when Sophia fell, a suddenly free Thoth fell into turmoil as well. However a new force conquered and united Thoth and border regions once more under the banner of Islam and named the region Hikmah. The Muslim converts continued to follow in the legacy of Aristotle, much to the ire of those who followed Plato to the north of the desert of the Gods. However, eventually the two allied under the banner of Ethos.

Built upon the ruins of Old Thoth, many wonders of the old nation still survive and remain untouched next to the new wonders of Hikmah. Hikmah is likely one of the most advanced regions in Ethos, with great strides in scientific progress tempered by prudence and faith, the further one strays from the river that marks the center of the nation, the more primitive the technology becomes, until one reaches the desert nomads on the border of the Desert of the Gods. Now the population is largely divided between Judism, Christianity and Islam, causing a great deal of religious tension, with each group vying for more control as well as conflict between more traditionalist factions and Logosian explorers. Adventurers who come to explore the ruins of old Thoth often find themselves forced into the delicate and difficult politics of Hikmah.
