Recently, the forgotten city of Anu-Asir, long buried in the desert, has been re-discovered. Would-be explorers, scholars, and thieves have come from far and wide to harvest the ancient city’s secrets, but one organization, Golden Falcon Antiquities, wrangled exclusive permission to lead the excavation and exploration efforts. This well-funded team has been preparing this massive undertaking for the last several weeks, and the city is abuzz with what will be uncovered.
All of this activity was about to come to a screeching halt, however, because the High Councilor of Antiquities of Per-Bastet discovered that the plagues and curses that destroyed Anu-Asir might return if the ancient city were disturbed. A day before he could give the order to halt all activity, he was attacked and killed in his chambers by a swarm of deadly scorpions.
The timing seemed quite convenient, and the sting of the scorpion cult rarely lands but once—adventure awaits those who dare to investigate!
