You try to reach for it, but a giant axe swoops down from the roof and cuts off your right arm! You scream in pain and fall on your knees. The mummy didn't notice you there and bumps into you. Both of you fall into a dark pit. It's filled with snakes! AAARGH! Spikes shoot out from the floor, penetrating some snakes and your right leg, while the mummy chews on your left foot.

You cough and cry as you hear a rumbling sound. The giant boulder falls down the pit and crushes most of your remaining bones. Luckily this saves you from the walls that had started to crush you. The last thing you hear before you die, is a dark voice inside your head.
