Very cool news coming out of Egypt.
“Achaeologists on Sunday unveiled a restored colossal statue of Amenhotep III that was toppled in an earthquake more than 3,000 years ago at Egypt’s famed temple city of Luxor.
The statue showing him in a striding attitude was re-erected at the northern gate of the king’s funerary temple on the west bank of the Nile.”

From the standpoint of a history buff, this is very cool. From the standpoint of a gamer, this is adventure waiting to happen.
What caused the earthquake? Was it divine wrath? Or maybe ancient adventurers wrecked the statue to stop an ancient evil. Maybe the statue was a golem with properties similar to those I discussed in this post.
Why did it take 3000 years for the statue to be restored? What will be unleashed now that it has been completed?
Perhaps the restored statue will be the host for a divine being, one that can only be controlled by using the Cosmic Amulet of Tutankhamen!
