A young page on your way to the Crusades, you are swept overboard in rough seas. Trying to save yourself, you grab the first thing within reach- an ankh, mysterious symbol of power in ancient Egypt- and suddenly you find yourself whirling through time and space, bound for the land and age of the Pharaohs. It will take the power of Egypt's mighty gods to send you home again, and only by fulfilling the quest of the magic ankh can you win their favor. But before you wait many perils- from the riddles of the Sphinx, to deadly pyramid pitfalls, to taking sides in the wars of the gods. Who is your ally, and who is your foe? Should you accept? Will you fall victim to hidden traps and perils, or choose wisely and find both fame and fortune?
