OK.. there's obviously lots of information yet to be released, and what little we know is subject to change all the way up to the point we're allowed to create characters but...

Osiron. The nation of mages is mainly made up of mountain ranges, where the mages build their towers.

That's about it as far as official info goes.
Additional information we know so far.. costume-wise, we're not robed wizards in pointy hats.

Closer comparison is something along the fashions of Rivendell from the Lord of the Rings movies.

Watch this space for further updates as we get them.

So we now know that each nation will have no special abilities or discounted skills.

Correct - which means that other than in numbers of mages, we're likely NOT to hold any magical power/skill advantage over other nations.
We may receive some small advantage based on the territories we hold, but there's nothing from the Culture that will give us a head start.

Latest information on Osiron... is that it is likely not to be called Osiron for much longer.

The word Osiron means 'little prayer'... which in early drafts for the nation was appropriate as there was more of a religious theme in the nation. That no longer applies.
Latest possible national name apparently is 'Morrow' implying that as a nation we're always planning for the future.

I really hope that they come up with something else. Morrow as a nation sounds all well and good, but as a people (and it doesn't matter what name PD give our people) we'll be called 'Morrons'.

Nation may give us an edge in some regards... I am still unsure about the nature of Ritual Magic and I've heard speculation about "National Magic" that is tied to the Egregores, but I am not sure how workable that could be.
In soeculation: it may be that a) our Ritual Magic is a little better, b) we have more developed "magical assets" or c) that our Egregore's power helps us with magic, rather than whatever it helps other people with.

We may also have more than one place in the Conclave, to reflect the traditions... or just to try and attract the magically-inclined towards 'Osiron' rather than spreading out in order to look for a vacant seat.

In short, there are a number of ways beyond flavour that PD could go to make this Wizard-Nation business a reality.

OK... latest news flash following Odyssey.. Osiron has a new name.

The nation will now be known as Urizen.
For any that missed what little material was released for us (It was a back page in the Wintermark art book!), I took some pics which I'll pass on to Chris to add to his photobucket (or similar) account so we can link it to here.

All we had was the new name and 8 photos of costume suggestions... all of which were elvish robes.

But we're still better off than all those many people waiting for the Varushka brief.. I've heard that although their nation brief is more complete.. there was nothing in the Empire tent for them..

Excellent, I've updated the forum name. Sounds like they are still working on Urizen as a nation.

According to PD's timeline post, the other 5 nations should be at Maelstorm Event 3.

Not much new information for us after Strom 3, but we have confirmation that the Empire wiki is to be going public on 25th July.

I'm struggling to like Urizen now it's fleshed out tbh. Lord of the Rings wizards with roman names doesn't really cut it for me. Sorry.
