Added DiffLines:

* BecameTheirOwnAntithesis: A positive example in ''Resurrection''. Since the new mummies are created from merging a powerful soul fragment with a mortal whose soul had a weakness in the corresponding part, the result is a person who excels in the area that once used to be their greatest failing. Thus, an ExtremeDoormat becomes a fearless warrior, a self-destructive person becomes a paragon of healthy lifestyle choices, a philistine becomes a visionary artist...


Unlike the [=oWOD's=] main games, Resurrection didn't provide core rules in the main book, requiring a main WOD corebook to play. There was only one supplement, the Mummy Player's Guide.

Resurrection was the first version to introduce splats, known as ''dynasties''. Amenti dynasties were based on the type of soul-shard the new mummy had bonded with, Teomallki dynasties on which culture the mallki had come from, and the Wu T'ian on whether they were aspected to yin or yang.

The Resurrection corebook gave full writeups for the Amenti, with guidelines for the others; they received full writeups of their own in the Mummy Player's Guide.

The truth behind [[Myth/EgyptianMythology Set's murder of his brother Osiris]] was that the various participants were - or became - supernaturals of one type or another. Osiris and Set were [[TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade vampires]], Isis and Nephthys [[TabletopGame/MageTheAscension magic-workers]]. When Set murdered and dismembered Osiris, Isis and Nephthys resurrected Osiris with magic, and he returned having learned secrets of life and death. Together, they pooled what they knew to create the Great Rite, the Rite of Rebirth, the Spell of Life, and used it to save the life of Osiris' and Isis' son Horus.

Mummy elements have popped up in the {{new World of Darkness}}, notably the Osirans of ''TabletopGame/PrometheanTheCreated'', the Purified of ''Immortals'', and ''TabletopGame/GeistTheSinEaters''. A full Mummy gameline came out in 2013, ''TabletopGame/MummyTheCurse'', providing a distinctly [[DarkerAndEdgier darker take]] on the mummy mythos.
