With all the things going on in the world, it would appear that the most-terrible thing facing us today is… Ancient Egypt! *holds up a picture of the pyramids while the Imperial March plays*
Yes, once more, Ancient Egypt rears its fantastically tanned and well-eyelinered head to threaten the daily balance. Long-forgotten burial chambers full of secrets might be enticing for archeologists, but ancient curses and forgotten deities are nothing to scoff at. You must be careful. And that’s what you’ll be doing in Omens of the Pharaoh, a new expansion coming for Eldritch Horror.
From the announcement:
Despite the nagging doubts that plague you now, there is little chance that you could have possibly been better prepared for this dig. You had participated in many exciting and contentious scholarly debates centered around this area of Dashur and the relic known as the “Eye of Light and Darkness.” This was your area of expertise, and you knew that there was little evidence to support the hoarse ravings of the crazed old man who burst into your office following one such debate. He had rambled on about “Nephren-Ka,” chambers sealed in eternal darkness, and ancient faceted stones that whispered into one’s mind. Who would have believed such things? Now, huddled in the dark, you hear voices speaking in long-dead languages behind walls that have been unopened for untold centuries, and you wish you had considered the wisdom the madman had offered. For the first time in your scholarly career, you truly dread what you may learn.
