New Release: Mummy: The Curse

Imagine being both dead and deathless at the same time. Imagine being cradled in the arms of death for years, sometimes decades on end, but all the while knowing that you will eventually not only arise again, but awaken to an unfamiliar world that mostly fears and hates you. Now imagine that your purpose, your entire existence, is bound within this cycle — that you are chained to it for all eternity. You sleep, you wake, your serve your Judge’s will in the lands of the living, and you return to the death-sleep once more. The ancient culture that empowered you is gone, lost to the sands of time… yet you endure.

In Mummy: The Curse, a Storytelling game set in the World of Darkness, you play one of these beings. Those who know they exist, from the cultists who serve them to the dark forces arrayed against them, call them the Deathless.

    Well just finished reading the book(yeah I read fast) I can say that is a bit darker than the OWOD mummy. And they are also international with Rio being a mummy stronghold. Nice power, explanations etc. Good show.

    Question:

    I found that the book is Egyptiocentric will mummies from other racial ethnicities be covered. yes there are mummies too from other countries like China etc.

      While nobody has explicitly said “no, we’re never going to do that”, every time it comes up a writer has talked about how the Arisen backstory is very much tied into that of the Nameless Empire and originate there. However, that’s not to say they can’t show up in those other countries. Six thousand years is a long time, and the Arisen have reached all sorts of places in that time. If one of the Arisen emigrated to China, existed there throughout dynasty after dynsasty – longer than he ever spent in the lands of his birth – and can only remember his existence in China, is it correct to say that he isn’t Chinese? Many Deathless face questions like these as they try to discover who they were and are.

      I don’t think that would make sense in the context of Mummy. As presented in MtC, Mummies aren’t Egyptian at all. Egypt just happened to hold onto some superficial rituals that were bastardized remnants of the real stuff that was used by the previous civilization that was specifically not Egyptian.

      Remember that the Purified, from Immortals, still exist in the World of Darkness. Not all living mummies are Arisen.

    Will we be seeing an .epub version of the Core rulebook soon? I can’t get it just yet anyways, and I can’t remember if it was listed on the schedule as having an Epub version. So excited for you guys having done this!
