In ancient times, philosophers learned of the Music of the Spheres, a perfect, harmonious music inaudible on earth, and created by the stars and planets in their movement across the heavens. The Greek philosopher Pythagoras deciphered the meaning of the music and copied the Music of the Spheres onto a scroll near the end of his lifetime. Upon his death, this Music Scroll, along with many other scrolls in his collection, was delivered to the Great Library in Alexandria, Egypt for safekeeping. When the librarians learned of its special significance, they realized the tremendous power that it could unleash if ever someone were to play the Music of the Spheres in acoustic perfection - one could gain control over the movement of the stars and planets, causing widespread devastation through earthquakes, typhoons, volcanic eruptions, meteorite storms, and the like. To prevent this from happening, the librarians hid the Music Scroll in a special vault in the catacombs beneath Alexandria. For added protection, the catacombs were guarded by the souls of the dead that would prevent any from passing. In modern times, a secret society called the Illuminati has learned of the existence of the Music Scroll and its whereabouts. Knowing that it was buried deep in a tomb, they sought the services of the world-famous Archaeologist/Adventurer Lara Croft to recover it. However, before she accepted their commission, Lara decided to infiltrate the Illuminati's secret headquarters and there discovered the reason why they wanted it: world domination. To prevent the Illuminati from ever finding the scroll, she decided to find it herself and relocate it to a secret place they would never think to look for it ...
