Anubis

In search of Anubis, Part II: Not there quite yet…

Obviously, last time we did not dig down far enough. The pottery was nice, but it was nineteenth century at the earliest. We need old! We need ancient! We have moved on from where we found the pots and have started a new dig. Ah! Sigyn, have you found something? Is that a glimpse of bone I’m seeing?

Indeed it is!

Yes, dearest, those *are* impressive incisors, but I don’t recall that the Egyptians numbered a gopher-headed god among their pantheon. Perhaps, again, we have not dug down far enough. Here, let me dig for a while.

I think…No..Yes. Look, Sigyn! We’ve found…oh.

Two trilobites and an ammonite. Now I think we might have dug down a bit too far…

The Room of Doom, Part III: Calling on the Old Gods

It has crossed my mind that if I am to properly subdue Midgard and rule it utterly, I might need to occasionally enlist the help of some of the native deities. Contacting them, however, has proven unexpectedly difficult. Gods often dwindle as their devotees die out, and many are sleeping the sleep of the unremembered.

The ancient pantheon of the land of the Nile holds a particular fascination for me, but I’ve made no progress with them at all.

Hold! What is this? Perfect! I have found a holy book containing all the mysteries and rites of the Jackal-headed god of the underworld.
