Chapter 1: 'The Half-Dead City'
By Jim Groves
The Mummy?s Mask Adventure Path begins with ?The Half-Dead City,? an exciting new adventure in the pyramid-laden realm of Osirion, Land of Pharaohs! In Wati, the half city, the church of Pharasma holds a lottery allowing explorers to delve the tombs of the city?s vast necropolis in search of the nation?s lost glories. In the course of investigating dusty tombs and fighting their ancient guardians and devious traps, the heroes encounter a rival adventuring group intent on keeping one tomb?s treasures for themselves. At the same time, the heroes learn that a potent artifact, potentially capable of animating the dead, has been stolen from the tomb. Can the adventurers defeat their rivals, or will they join the undead defenders of the city?s necropolis?
