Legacy of the Pharaohs


Ancient Egypt, Land of the Pharaohs:  What will you find among the eternal sands?

The people of Ancient Egypt built a civilization that defies the ages. The birthplace of much that Western culture takes for granted, Egypt’s history and legends still inspire tales of adventure and mystery.

As an alternative to the standard Tolkien-inspired fantasy, adventurers may travel to a land of burning sands and mighty enchantments, where the river’s annual floods bring new life and the tombs of Pharaohs dominate the landscape.  A land where myriad local gods claim worshippers and the mighty god of the sun is honored with brightly-adorned temples.

This collection is intended to provide game masters with resources that have an “Egyptian” flavor, submissions reminiscent of the Land of the Nile.

What a nice thematic Codex! And very useful, if you dare into the land of burning sands... :)

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 got this book at the giftshop when The (first) King Tut tour came through. It is a great work.
Everyday Life in Ancient Egypt: http://tinyurl.com/37uzak
http://tinyurl.com/3cgu8j Yes it is a coloring book, get over it.. it has nice visuals


While not Egyptian, Egypt is this submission clusters' inspiration in both form and place in the game world's history.

Aviontix There are seven or so submissions in that cluster.

Having been watching the discovery channel recently and seeing a lot of Egyptian flavor there. This is interesting to me right now. Good job.

I think this is a great idea for all the obvious reasons. I love the genre, and now we have all the egypto-flavor subs under one heading. good work!

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*

4/5 and HoH from me!

Arune Spheres
Arune Spheres are hollow, blue reflective metallic spheres about 25 cm/ 10" in diameter (though some are larger). They are made of a thickish glass mirrored on the inside. When magical energies are flowed through the sphere, it produces a haunting tone, which can be varied by the type, intensity, and harmonics of energies passed through it. (It sounds like an electronic organ.) If multiple energy flows are generated, multiple sounds can be generated, some of which sound like mundane instruments. Masters of The Craft can replicate almost any sound in their memory with one. Though originally used as a training tools for those with The Power, it has been adapted to be a musical instrument. All it takes is someone with patience, medative training, and a touch of the Power, to use it. (Thus becoming the favorite instrument of anyone who was tested to the first level of the Craft, but failed to advance).
