Some of the most advanced technology of the neo-pagan Covenant can barely be recognized as technology. Especially among the Bastian faction of the Covenant, superstition and ancient magical rituals, empowered by bleeding edge Psi-tech, work in conjunction with more conventional technology to solve the 22nd Century’s many crisis.
The new techno-magical artifacts described below are common at every level of Bastian culture- they are found in homes, in school rooms, in dormitories and corporate offices, as well as being carried into battle by heroic Bastian special operations troops. Most of these new items are hand crafted by specially trained artisans who have mastered a unique set of Object Philosophies, based upon the magic of ancient Egypt.
The Bastian community has a great respect for craftsmen and artists, and producing fine ritual objects capable of accepting psi-based enchantments is as much an act of devotion to Bast as it is a practical occupation. Bastians believe their culture of art, learning and fine craftsmanship is one of the critical differences between Pagan and Christian- Bastians create items of as great and enduring beauty as the pyramids, while Christians build cheap stripmalls and prefab toys that fall apart after a few weeks use.
Crafting mekhtets is one more way to show the superiority of Bastian culture, and is practiced enthusiastically by any Bastian with a talent for Philosophies.
