story
IMPORTANT: This Level needs to be converted with the ORIGINAL Catacomb WAD (not the revised one)!! Once upon a time, long ago in Egypt a Pharaoh caused a lot of controversy by building his tomb on the land of the living ones. Though this was never confirmed by the Pharaoh himself, the rumours spread far and wide, and the people felt that the Gods would not accept such blasphemy, even from their own chosen one. A young warrior from the Pharaoh's court noticed the anxiety among the people and took up the chance to take over the Pharaoh. He secretly conspired against him and when the Pharaoh with a dozen or so of his warriors were checking out how the construction went, entombed him alive. Ever since then nothing was heard of the Pharaoh or his men, though strange things started happening around the tomb so the place was soon abandoned. Yet the legend of the Pharaoh who was entombed alive remained, and it was only a matter of time, till someone would dig this up. And so it happened that when a group of archeologists examined ancient scrolls they found out about the location of this mystery tomb, and the Pharaoh's real motives with it. It seemed that the Pharaoh had found out about a golden power that lay hidden deep beneath the desert sands, and dug his way down to the bottom of it. A single contact with this power, with a wish in mind could change the world as it was known to the humanity, ?one touch to change it all?. That's why the Pharaoh was so obsessed with finding this source of power and didn't notice the plans of his enemies. Whether he found this power is still unclear, and that's where Lara comes in. The group of archeologists knew well that the Pharaoh, comprehending the value of the power, wouldn't leave this structure unguarded, so they called the best (wo)man in the business to explore this Pseudo Tomb where the excavations had started. Lara, of course, intrigued by the story, simply couldn't decline the generous offer and the deathtraps and Pharaoh's awaiting undead troops were no reason for her to back out....
