Back to the story we played yesterday evening, we were really happy with the final result; in actual play, the scenario provided many memorable moments, including a great conversation with Osirians (Anubis and Bastet, no less) and a very moving (if short-lived) romance between Lady Penelope and the pharaoh Akhenaten, which made the tragic ending of the monarch's reign even more poignant. Anyway, here are the blurbs...
Episode 4: Son of the Sun
Penelope takes Bernice to Egypt during the early reign of Amenhotep IV, better known to history as the heretic pharaoh Akhenaten, husband to Nefertiti and inventor of monotheism. Desire meets destiny in this tale of palace intrigue, false gods and hidden truths.
Episode 5: The Sands of Sutekh
A mysterious temporal mishap takes Penelope to the final year of Akhenaten’s reign, as the heretic pharaoh and his fabled City of the Horizon are about to face the wrath of Amun-Ra, the god he has forsaken – or so the priests say… The truth, of course, is much more sinister.
