Beware the Wrath of the Mummy!

Perhaps one of the first things that one thinks of when considering Egyptian settings is the mummy, one of the most iconic undead creatures in all of fantasy media. These bandage-wrapped guardians are often portrayed as being imbued with great power by their transformation. But in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, their low CR and simple stat-block prevent them from living up to the myths and legends that surround them.

This book introduces two new kinds of non-mythic mummies: the dry mummy, which forms naturally from those who die of exposure in the desert, and has the power to drain life-giving moisture from their victims, and the pitch mummy, a foul undead animated by black tar, whose creation was considered taboo even by those who extolled the virtues of creating normal mummies. In addition to the non-mythic versions, mythic versions of each of these creatures is provided as well, making it easy to use them in a wider variety of game styles and at a significant range of CRs.

The Mythic Mastery series of products builds and expands on the rules for mythic characters introduced in Mythic Adventures. Each Mythic Mastery provides new content and rules for mythic games, with a focus on a single theme or area of play. While some of the content provided in Mythic Mastery products requires the use of mythic characters and a mythic adventure, others, such as those focused on exploring mythic monsters, can be used in games of every sort.
