“The Charioteer’s Tomb” introduces readers to all aspects of gaming in PULP EGYPT, from ancient tombs and superstitious workers to nefarious criminals intent on relieving the heroes of the treasures they recover. As members of an archaeological expedition, the characters explore a long-lost tomb belonging to a charioteer hero of the ancient Battle of Kadesh. After braving the mysteries and dangers within the tomb, they must safely transport artifacts from the excavation site at Sakkara to their warehouse in Cairo, evading greedy laborers, antiquities thieves, and smugglers all intent on stealing their discoveries. The adventure also includes maps, pregenerated characters, and a player hand-out.
This scenario uses the Any-System Key to describe stats and difficulties in easily defined terms gamers can quickly customize to their favorite game engines.
