Egypt is a great source of material. If you are interested in gaming in Egypt, the only useful game suppliment I have found is GURPS Egypt. Even if you don't know GURPs the source material is useful to you in setting up a game. (And GURPS LITE is like 8 pages and a totally free pdf.. so you can get the rules if you want to understand them).
I've always been a large fan of Ancient Egypt, ever since my childhood. As it was another major factor that contributed to my getting involved with roleplaying. I used to have "adventures" in my daydreams as a kid of being there. *Memories*
I think we can use more subs like this at all times, in lieu of Epics.
Yes, on its own merit, it is simply a mace...but no! its not simply a mace, its a mirror cast on a world, and I think if every campaign world featured ten to twenty mundane weapons of this caliber, campaign worlds would be happier places. Go to Comment
The mace seemed a digression from the main point of the other piece, so I separated it. It is meant to support the Chosen of Uep-Hawet, but the description of the cult is easirer to follow without the mace in the middle of it. Go to Comment
You realize a group of men is going right to you. The man in front has a hard determined look on his face, the two men behind follow him with some uneasiness. He stops before you, holding the handle of his sword in one hand, and slaps (choose person carefully) with leather gloves he carries in the other hand. "Rhadagald Thinvoice, I challenge You to a duel to dea..." Stopping abruptly, he realizes this is the wrong person.
