Mummification is an important and deeply spiritual practice in Egyptian life. As Egyptians we have taken great pains to preserve the legacy of our monuments, and it is time that we devote the same energy and attention to preserving the memories of our citizens.

Brief Description

The test consists in getting a cadaver from the university of worship, and giving it a proper burial. The test is intended for a group of 4 players, each receiving part of the instruction and requiring them to get together and figure out the proper treatment and ritual. The cadaver requires specific treatments of salt, perfume and embalming fluid (a cocktail of wine and two other ingredients)).

Then the body needs to be wrapped into bandages (made out of thread in a Student's Loom or Hand Loom). Each cadaver lasts 24 hours before it is no longer suitable to be mummified. Once the cadaver is mummified, it requires a burial ceremony. The ceremony should take place at an alter location selected by the University of Worship from which the body was obtained. To begin the ceremony, the mummy needs to be presented to the university for examination. After being deemed worthy, the ceremony could commence, consisting of burning spirits in a brazier, burning incense, reciting a prayer, and an action and offering for the afterlife.

Test description at University of Worship

By the exact words of the scientists (pop up when you start the test): "Form a ritual group with 3 other priest. The lead priest may obtain a cadaver from the Great University of worship and each priest then helps to prepare the body for the afterlife. After preperations are approved by the university mortician, each Priest will then be given part of the burial ritual. Each priest must perform the entire ritual in the correct order at the specified altar to prepare the spirit for the afterlife. Finally the deceased is laid to rest in a santified Ka Tomb. Complete 7 rituals to advance."

The group also receives their profession, cause of death, interests, and the Egyptian Gods they worshiped.

It resultant chants may look something like this;

  • Tufet, son of Akum and Nufteth, died (a few days before the acquisition of body in Egyptian Game Time) of (random cause).

((May (Egyptian God Worshiped) comfort Akum and Nufteth as they grieve for the loss of their son/daughter.))
