Last Year's Events: The Alphatians mostly forgot the role Thothia played in keeping the Alphatian remnants out of Thyatian grasp, and the aura that the Thothians had gained faded to the point that it lost its grip on the Naycese Council. Facing trouble at home, with the attack by spiders and the denunciation of his policy by Haptuthep, Pharaoh Ramenhotep dramatically altered his stance, notably by using what power Thothia still had in the council to prevent it from interfering on the Isle of Dawn.
