Lost Pyramids

Very cool: Seventeen lost pyramids are among the buildings identified in a new satellite survey of Egypt

More than 1,000 tombs and 3,000 ancient settlements were also revealed by looking at infra-red images which show up underground buildings.

Initial excavations have already confirmed some of the findings, including two suspected pyramids.

No potential for game use there.

    Kilgore,

    If you are looking for gaming material, specifically adventures, featuring lost pyramids, then may I direct you to two 1st Editon adventures I have written:

    1). The Lost Pyramid of Imhotep, which is published by Expeditious Retreat Press under their Advanced Adventures line, concerns an expedition to discover the long-lost pyramid tomb of the master architect of ancient Egypt, Imhotep. It is an Egyptian-themed, trap-ridden dungeon crawl ala Gygax’s Tomb of Horrors. I mined my rather extensive library of Egyptian lore to develop the adventure.

    2) The Nameless City, which is published by Mythmere Games under their Swords & Wizardry line, is loosely based on H.P. Lovecraft’s short story of the same name. The adventure features a fully-detailed underground city built a race of evil serpent people who reside in massive pyramids. It has a great swashbuckling feel to it, and features an equal mix of traps, tricks, and combat.

    Thanks for reading,
    Alphonso Warden
