The Pharaoh Instance
Claw Your Way through the Armies of the Fallen Pharaohs!
Masters of lies and deception, it should come as no surprise that the demons of the Evil Lyceum managed to convince the current Queen of the Bassil Empire to dispose of the previous Pharaoh and steal the legendary secret of the ancient kings. The demons had found the perfect partner in their quest to discover the energy that had powered the golden age of the Bassil Empire. Using her remarkable charisma, the Queen charmed the Pharaoh Ottenkhamun and used him to summon forth an army of the undead to search for the source of the power that radiated from the depths of the Great Pyramid!
After receiving reports of strange events in the desert, Archangel Michael discovered how close to their goal the demons were, and vowed not to let them plunge the world into darkness. He sent out the call, requesting the help of the strongest Angels in Eden and the Lyceum to follow him into battle against evil one more time. Knowing what they faced in the harsh unforgiving desert, Michael simply told them 'Seek out Pharaoh Ottenkhamun in the Unknown Chambers, destroy his embalmed body, and then make it out again in one piece.'
But that was all he would tell them, and many were left wondering the obvious - What other dangers lurked in the dusty passages of the Great Pyramid? What foul creatures protected the dead Pharaoh? How many would come back out into the blazing desert sun alive...?

Dancing With Ottenkhamun
