Challenge: Black book of the dead
The high priest was speaking the words that were engraved in gold. The Med-jai looking on did not have a choice. They could not come spoiling everything. This time the Pharaoh had requested the spell in which words would be exchanged with the dead. It was not an unusual request, but one that those not familiar with the gods were uncertain about. The book was heavy in Imhotep's hands. It's weight added to by the key locked onto its cover. With a flip of the thick gold page the connotation was complete. The book was closed until the next time.
