The Valley of the Pharaohs

In response to Catacomb Librarian's call for posts about obscure role-playing games, mikemonaco recently discussed Matthew Balent's The Valley of the Pharaohs.  I still retain my copy of the game and it occupies a place in the stack of games I intend to address eventually.  Meanwhile, I provide a scan of the (legal-sized) character sheet.

Also, here are descriptions of two “fantastic monsters” – disappointingly named “Type I” and “Type II.”  At first glance, they seem to be simple composite monsters; however, they possess subtle but interesting features.

  1. Those are some pretty sweet descriptions. I wonder why they didn't throw in more Egyptian "monsters," either from art or Herodotus or something -- horned and winged serpents, sphinxes, aapep and other one-offs like that thing that eats your ka if you've been bad.

    Good find! And thanks for the link!
