aithne: (Usi (Living Sands))
[This is the last recap for this game, since we finished this last Sunday. New campaign will start up in January next year. There will be many, many dragons, it looks like.]

We had been stranded on the wrong side of the world, an ocean away from home, and Anubis was in the process of taking over Egypt.

It was time to find a way home...

aithne: (Usi (Living Sands))
We were at the end, we thought. Everything was over, we were going to go home.

But Anubis, as we discovered, had other plans...

aithne: (Usi (Living Sands))
We'd fought one battle, and prevailed. But Menes was still out there, and he'd saved some of his nastiest surprises for the last...

In Which the Travelers meet Interesting new Dragons, and Kill Them )
aithne: (Usi (Living Sands))
A shortish story, and one that came out a lot differently than I thought it would. I was braced for this to be an angstfest, but Sitefnut surprised me, and so did Soren.

'And that's it? Hello again, nice to see you, you go your way and I'll go mine?' )
aithne: (Usi (Living Sands))

We were preparing to bring Menes to us, massing all of our forces at the black pyramid near Amarra, waiting for him to come to us.

Of course, the old lion had more than a few allies on his side, and a few nasty surprises left for us...

aithne: (Usi (Living Sands))
[Shortest recap ever; we called the game about an hour and a half early because we really have wave after wave of battles to fight now, and it would have taken longer than we have to run the next one.]

We'd discovered that in Xeres was the key to bringing Menes to us, to forcing him to fight us on ground of our choosing. However, what we did not fully realize yet is exactly how important this would suddenly make us in the enemy's eyes, as the first of the remaining pharaohs came after us once again...

In Which Battles are Fought, Amunet changes a Pharaoh's Mind, and Preparations are Made )
aithne: (Usi (Living Sands))
We had taken care of two of three pharaohs in Dahshur. But of the three, the most dangerous was left, and he had an artifact of such power that we had no idea how we would counter it.

It turned out that the most dangerous thing of all was not knowing what the enemy wanted...

In Which a Miscalculation Leads to a very bad though Temporary end )
aithne: (Usi (Living Sands))
Things were beginning to come together, and we'd discovered that there would be a meeting in the city of Dahshur of three of the pharaohs, where they would be discussing inciting civil war.

We decided, on the whole, that we really wanted nothing more than to beat them to it...

In Which Xeres is Taken, Pharaohs miscalculate their Allies, and Raam Abuses his Power )
aithne: (Usi (Living Sands))
We had come to the exit to the upper world, and discovered that we were beneath a temple of Anubis, a large and active one headed by a formerly undead pharaoh named Amunhotep.

Five hundred Anubites stood between us and freedom, and I had a feeling no matter what we tried, we were going to have to go through them...

In Which Battle is Fought, A Temple Falls, and there are Suspicions about Sekath )
aithne: (Usi (Living Sands))
A brief recap this time, written mostly this morning after my run. Next week is tomb crawl, part two.

In which a Tomb is most Thoroughly Explored, Sitefnut is most Thoroughly Exploded, and Pepy snogs a Siren )
aithne: (Usi (Living Sands))
This is one of those stories that started bothering me the moment the situation that engendered it occurred. All sorts of angst, as well as decision that's probably long overdue.

'I wish I could tell you that the pain will quickly fade, but it's not going to...' )
aithne: (Usi (Living Sands))
[geekery. Is it ever anything else?]

Our two companions safely returned, our attention turned to another pressing danger in the form of an army of winged hyenas that were bearing down on Pi Rameses, and the ancient evil who led them.

I had been working on a way to free the maresh from what held them prisoner, but another way came open, only this one had a terribly high cost...

In which maresh Threaten, Amunet gathers No Moss, and Sitefnut fails a Duty )
aithne: (Usi (Living Sands))
A brief story that's mostly to help me track how things are developing. I wanted to listen to the lecture that Isu was about to give Sitefnut, so I wrote this. Plus, it's got some stuff about the folks who are about to try hunting down Sitefnut in it.

Early in the afternoon, Sitefnut had commandeered a workroom... )
aithne: (Usi (Living Sands))
So we'd managed to get two of our number captured. We had to leave them where they were overnight, but the next day we of course mounted a rescue mission.

And were rejoined by an ally we had not seen for a while, and our small god managed to do some very impressive damage indeed...

In Which a temple Falls, Pepy is Surprised, and Amunet is more than One Person )

And also, Menes' notes on the maresh )
