Khartut's Tomb

Khartut's Tomb is a tomb located within the Gate of Unending Cycles of Uldum. It's here after the expedition the adventurer joins is ambushed, captured, and take to the Lost City of the Tol'vir that Harrison Jones defeats the pygmies and prepares to enter the tomb. After setting up all the explosives a sand pygmy causes the explosives to go off too soon blowing Harrison and his companion to the Obelisk of the Stars. The explosion does not even dent the sealed doorway.

As legend has it the Coffer of the Promise lies within this tomb, however, Harrison was incorrect to believe it was in this particular one.

Trivia

  • In Egyptian hieroglyphs, a cartouche is an oval (that is to say a rectangle with semi-circular ends) with a horizontal line at one end, indicating that the text enclosed is a royal name, coming into use during the beginning of the Fourth Dynasty under Pharaoh Sneferu, replacing the earlier serekh. The pronunciation of the word cartouche is quite similar to the name Khartut, therefore it is possible that this name was inspiration for this Tol'vir's name.
