About 20 April, 1893
The rippers join forces with the tribesmen and follow an obvious trail of dozens heading back to the east. After another day of travel, they can see a large camp. One of the Tribesmen and Daniel go to scout it out. They return and report at least one armed guard, a dozen mummies, and a score of tribesmen. Although they did not see Imhotep, they did see a very large tent, that the majority of the mummies were gathered around.
It is decided that they will try and take out the guard as stealthily as possible, and then go to use the Ring of Toth on Sosra. The tribesmen would act as a harassing force on the far side of the camp to try keep the main force from being completely overwhelmed.
The fight goes relatively well, with DK hitting Sosra with the ring, which causes the other mummies to collapse, and the tribesmen to run. In the aftermath, however they discover that Allan has been shot in the head, and barely breathing, and the tribesmen are all killed. The riflemen flee with 2 of their members killed, probably by the Bedouins.
Doing all they can to keep Allan alive, they head back to Cairo, at least a 10 day journey by camel…
