How do you kill a mummy ( the Egyptian kind, mind you 😉 )

Post by P/o Prune »

I need to find a way to kill / destroy a mummy, and any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Only one rule. Fire is not an option.

How about water in a pond/lake/sea, it would soak the mummy's linen wrappings and cause it to sink?

great idea. I'll see if I can implement it. The scenario is that the player is inside a haunted house where he will encounter a number of "undead" that he has to slain.

How about a swimming pool in the garden or basement of the haunted house? You could also weigh the mummy down with chains or something heavy?

What about a vial of Holy Water that when sprinkled/splashed on the mummy causes the body inside to turn to dust and you are left with a pile of bandages.

@ Lazzah:

A swimming pool wouldn't fit into the scenario. The house has been abandoned for, maybe a hundred years, because of the terrible things that has / is happening in there.

Interesting idea. This should be doable. I will give some thoughts.

Thanks to both of you for your help. :thanks:

Very much keen on your idea, sorry :blush:
But it wouldn't fit the scenario of the game, and then... maybe it would... Hmmm more to think about.
Thank you Rotter :yeah:
