Hello, all! My group decided to leave NYC for Cairo and allow it I did. Our first session there went smashingly and I was fully comfortable in the Keeper's throne. However, near the end of the session they were really angling for the Mosque of Ibn Tulun.
So I'm looking ahead to our next session and putting emphasis on doing prep and writing for the group to run into the Clive Expedition and while I was re-reading the chapter I noticed that from the Clive section it jumps to the "Underneath the Sphinx" section so suddenly I was caught off guard. Unless I missed something it would appear the only lead to get there is a minor member of the Clive Expedition. Am I correct? It seemed a little jarring to have such a large aspect of the chapter come from something that's not really even called attention to in the campaign book. Now, I can certainly write and prep for said character to be much more than minor...but I'm wondering if:
1) Did I miss something?
2) Does anybody out there have any suggestions or experience with the "under the sphinx" bit and nudging players toward it.
(Part of why I ask is because the Ibn Tulun section is much further in the chapter and while that wouldn't normally phase me, the intro to that bit seems to indicate that the players should already have seemingly gone to hell and back before this)
Any and all help appreciated, thanks!
