User summary:
Lännen Maat (eng. Western Lands) is a finnish RPG about the afterlife of ancient Egypt. It is designed by Risto J. Hieta and published by Myrrysmiehet in 2013. All the art is from Wikimedia Commons under the CreativeCommons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported License and originally done by Jeff Dahl.

The game has a quite unique concept of starting at the point of main character's death and funeral. The game progresses according to the beliefs of ancient egyptians: the dead person first has to wander through the Western Lands called Duat or the Realm of the Dead and after surviving that he or she is judged in the Halls of Osiris where the gods question and interrogate the person and then finally weigh his/her soul against the feather of Maat. If the soul is lighter, the person is free of sin and can continue to eternal life on the paradise fields of Osiris. But if the soul is heavy, the person has done too many sins in his/her lifetime and the horrible sin-eater god Ammut will devour the person painfully.

The main idea is the same in each game of Lännen Maat but the person who's story is told changes every time as do the trouble in Duat and the gods present in the final judgement. The game claims to be for one player and many GM's, although it could also be called GM-less game. One player playes the dead person and others are the gods who first put him through trials in Duat and then make the final judgement.

Lännen Maat is meant to be played as one-shot adventures, duration 2-4 hours including preparations. As the sacred number of egyptians is twelve, the different parts of game always have twelve sub-parts. Which means playing would be best with a player number which can divide twelve evenly plus one for the main character.
