Pakhet’s Hidden Treasures

The Temple of Pakhet is more than just an excavation site in one of Egypt’s most famed—and dangerous—pyramids.  Having been abandoned for years by researchers due to the pyramid’s numerous booby traps, Pakhet’s treasures have remained untouched and its secrets undiscovered.  It was only a matter of time before the Dragons and Scorpions heard whispers of Pakhet’s myth and raced to see who could claim the forgotten treasure first.

Unlocking Egypt’s Ancient Power

Thousands of years ago, Egypt’s might was known across the world, its power embodied in its massive pyramids, towering statues of deities, and beautiful hieroglyphics of pharaohs and Egyptian life.  As the sands of time swept through the once-mighty nation, its history has been preserved in ancient relics.  However, many secrets dwell within the tombs, waiting to be claimed by a brave soul.

According to Egyptian legend, Ra, the God of the sun, harnessed an incredible power drawing from solar energy.  As the sun God, Ra was unparalleled in his strength and speed, being able to wield the sun’s energy and travel at the speed of light.  Due to his abilities, he was the unquestioned head deity and ruler of Egypt.

However, Ra’s fellow gods grew tired of his reign and devised a plan to overthrow their leader.  Led by Anubis, the god of the underworld, the Egyptian deities rebelled against Ra and stripped him of his power.  Unable to wield the sun’s might for themselves, the gods locked Ra’s power inside artifacts hidden in pyramids protected by deadly traps.  As centuries passed, the Egyptian gods faded away into myth, leaving only ruins and relics to tell of their tales.
