Room 6 - The Mummy
The door to this room is made of stone; it is heavy but unlocked. Inside the door is a large room. You lantern illuminates strange heiroglyphics, which cover the walls.
In the center of the room, on a stone altar, is a great onyx coffin. This is open and its lid rests askew against the altar. As you enter, a shape rises from the coffin. It is a human form, wrapped in bandages, and it raises itself out of the coffin with surprising speed and comes toward you!
It moves slowly, but it is very powerful...
Roll for combat!
5+ You strike first, pushing the mummy back and after a few strikes, it falls to the floor
3-4 The mummy slams you hard against the wall, but you regain your balance and finish it off with only a few cuts and deep bruises. -2HP
2 You trade blows back and forth and receive as good as you've given. Bloody and chilled, you push the mummy off of you and wearily rise to your feet. -4HP
1 The mummy surprises you with its power, tossing you around the room like a rag doll. At one point, it throttles you and tossed you into its sarcophagus! If you survive, it's just barely and you wake up in a daze still laying in the stone box. -8HP
Do you search the room?
If you've defeated the mummy for good, you may carry on. Two doors lead from this room, to the east or backtrack south.
