The Curse of Anubis Story-line
The year is 1950, October 30
This tragic tale begins on a warm evening in California, a group of people was gathered together at the Luna Estate. The hosts were John Simons, movie star and his wife Mona Frank, unfortunately, what was about to occur is both devastating yet fascinating. The next morning as the sun rose, a body was discovered, laid out on some cactus plants prolific in the area. The body was identified as Jace Simons, John’s twin brother, a renowned professor in archeology.
This was indeed a bad omen, like those who gathered the previous evening were casually celebrating to prove a point, that an ancient Egyptian curse was just a myth. Those who attended the event the previous evening came together to witness the passing of the comet Anubis, which only appears every 500 years. The last time this fabled comet crossed the heavens near the earth, Pharaoh Hotep suddenly died a suspicious death. His subjects placed him in his tomb with all his treasures and sealed it closed for all eternity. Some say there was a curse, anybody to disturb the peace of the tomb, would come to an untimely end.
Only a few years back, did Jace disturb the tomb and removed all that was within, ignoring the
hieroglyphs visible at the entrance to the tomb, warning all those who dare trespass. The curse said that whoever desecrates the tomb would meet their death when the comet Anubis reappeared in the heavens.
The gathering at the Estate was to toast the passing of this very comet, some thought it nothing
more than a hoax, while others just thought it something that belonged in the past. The deadly truth would soon be revealed.
