Hollow Earth Expedition - The Sumerian Stone


The crew met up with a local contact who took them out to the Nazi dig site outside Cairo. The ride out went perfect and the crew wound up being escorted into the site and right up to the tent of the head scientist. Their contact went in to the tent to discuss matters while the crew milled around the camp for a while.

After a few minutes, the crew decided they wanted to explore the rest of the site. One of them found a journal written by one of the archaeologists and stole it from the tent. Additionally, they were able to locate the actual excavation and ventured down into it. When they arrived in the dig, they were able to determine that they were in a tomb of a priest of Ra, the Sun God, who had a magical necklace.

Arriving at the door to the burial chamber, the crew came across a Nazi scientist who was busy examining the seal on the door. One of the crew members, who speaks German, was able to get into an argument over what to do next and they both left to talk to the dig coordinator leaving behind two of the crew down in the tomb.

Up top, they were able to knock out the scientist and hide his limp body. However, in doing so, they also saw the limp body of their contact being dragged away from the main tent and Nazi guards scrambling around.

At this point, the crew decided it was time to get out of the camp as soon as possible. One of them decided to run around and set some distractions off throughout camp while the other ran back into the dig site to tell the two members down below what was going on. Hurriedly, they were able to get into the burial chamber, get the necklace, and get out. The camp was in total chaos as they reached the top of the ladder with fires burning everywhere. A hasty escape in a truck saw our party get free of the Nazi dig site.

On the road back to Cairo, the crew came across a Nazi tank making its way to the camp. Pulling off the road and pretending to be a broken down truck, the crew were able to approach the tank and kill the tank crew. Or so they thought. One of the party members decided to quickly get into the tank to stop it from moving forward. In doing so, however, one of the tank crew members was still barely alive and was able to shoot him in the back, badly wounding our hero. A hand grenade thrown into the tank was able to finish off that final Nazi.

Escaping back to Cairo, and getting some much needed medical care, the crew was off to the airport to get out of the city quickly. They bought an airplane and flew to a nearby city where they were able to book passage through a local airport worked on a plane. Once they were airborne and off to safety, however, they realized they were not going east toward Kathmandu. When they began around on the plane, they realized they were, in fact, heading to Berlin!

Sending the plane into total chaos, the party fought with the pilots (and passengers!) to gain control of the aircraft just before it crashed into the Sea. Now, with the party flying desperately toward Turkey to escape the Nazi’s, the party must determine how to get to Kathmandu, find more information about the stone they found at the dig site in Cairo, and find out how to meet their contact to find the first (or second?) piece of the Sumerian Stone……
