Apep seeks to destroy light and order by devouring Ra's Sun Boat of Million Years,(to return to the state of Nun, the primeval waters. Each evening, Ra would defeat Apep to be reborn as the morning glow in form of a scarab. On this occasion, Apep has devoured Ra with no escape and has blocked the Sun in an eternal eclipse.
It is your mission, defender of Ma’at to find the heart scarab and help Ra continue his eternal journey across the three realms (Sky, land of Egypt and Duat). Fear not, before crossing into the other world, you hold the knowledge of the Book of Coming Forth By Day and the power of Heka. Your journey begins now, to the “Path of the Secret Things” where the radiant and pure soul “is born in eternity”.
You have not departed dead, You have departed Alive.
