Whoever messes with the ancient powers of Egyptian pharaohs can be struck by the curse of the pharaoh! Already many have dug and explored too deep. But occasionally it is not so much curiosity but its lower form, the greed for wealth, which – as in this adventure – is the undoing of two workers from Aken. If only they had taken the warning on the transport crates seriously. But they have sealed their own fate and, possibly, the fate of the entire town. For in the subterranean catacombs of Giza an unnamable creature has lurked for aeons whose very own desire has been awakened and whose long breath now reaches into peaceful Aken. Can the staff of the Obscuriat prevent worse and escape the tomb of the pharaohs, as only the great magician Houdini seems to have managed before…?
This adventure is written for the 7th edition of Chaosium’s “Call of Cthulhu” Keeper’s Rulebook and is set in the 1920s in the fictional town of Aken, Germany. The adventure is primarily detective-investigative in the first part, while the second part is mystical-occult. It is equally suitable for newcomers to this wonderful hobby, as well as experienced groups as a small interlude in a larger campaign or as a prelude to one.
