Like, who is he, what's he doing there, and - most of all - should I fast-forward myself back home? Just then, a man comes in with all the answers. he explains that you've landed in the workshop of an Ancient Egyptian embalmer and that his job is making the bodies of dead rich people into mummies, ready for burial.
