The curved sword of Hazach has proven less popular in West Kruna. Perhaps that's because the weapon's awkward shape makes it difficult to sheathe.
Hazach's ancient warriors wielded weapons which united the heavy head of a mace with the blade of an axe. Scholars who've translated certain tomb inscriptions believe that these tools of war might have first been created by an apprentice's error, but were claimed as a genuine martial advancement by the embarrassed smith responsible for the fellow.
Great lords and rulers wore headdresses to denote their status, and elevate them over lesser beings in both aspect and stature. These adornments were placed upon their owners' mummies, to the delight of future generations of tomb robbers.
Only men and women of great renown or means were mummified. And as such people owned many fine treasures, these were entombed with them to serve in the next life. In retrospect, this was perhaps a poor decision, as it provided marvelous incentive for people to loot their pyramids.
The hieroglyphic writings painted or inscribed upon the walls of Hazach's ancient pyramids were largely misunderstood by early scholars. This led to such now widely dismissed beliefs as the notion that the civilization to which the occupants belonged was ruled by birds, and populated entirely by men who walked in a strange and unnatural fashion.
One wonders why a mummy would need to protect its modesty, since their loins are wrapped in many layers of bandages. Perhaps their culture was one of extreme prudishness.
When mummies were brought to West Kruna, inside sarcophaguses looted for their material value or else their antiquity, they began to rise from the dead and murder those responsible for stealing them. This proved unfortunate for the thieves, but scholars were delighted -- for many of the mummies were subsequently willing to answer questions about their ancient civilization.
A mummy's rings are usually placed near the sarcophagus rather than upon the corpse. Some have attempted to derive a deep religious meaning from this custom, but risen mummies quashed those nascent theories by pointing out how difficult it is to place a person's ring on their finger after the digit in question has been wrapped up in bandages.
