You like to think of yourself as a bold and adventurous soldier of fortune, daring to brave the perils of the Egyptian Desert in search of a great lost pyramid. In fact, you're a small-time explorer, and you've just been marooned by your crew. Thoughts of getting lost, starving to death, or dying of thirst cross your mind, but you are sustained by the faint hope that you can somehow find the pyramid in this smoldering heat. You're all alone. Perhaps the sun has affected your thinking. Do you really expect to find a lost pyramid in this vast, endless desert, much less survive? Even if you do find it, can you get inside? Hardest of all, are you capable of matching wits with the ancient Egyptians? Still, you're driven onward against desperate odds. Undreamed-of riches and treasures beyond imagination await you. And your pride and dignity, your reputation and self-esteem, are at stake. For you are branded INFIDEL.
Packaging DetailsThe old "Folio" packaging of Infidel consisted of a folder in the form of a writing case containing "True Tales of Adventure", a letter to Rose Ellingsworth (5 pages), an envelope addressed to Rose Ellingsworth, a pergament map of the excavation site, and a pergament with a stone rubbing of hieroglyphs and hieroglyph translations.
The re-release of Infidel used the standard box format which consisted of a grey box with coloured horizontal stripes. It contained "Expedition Log, Ellingsworth Pyramid Search", a letter to Rose Ellingsworth (2 pages), an envelope addressed to Rose Ellingsworth, a pergament map of the excavation site, and a pergament with a stone rubbing of hieroglyphs and hieroglyph translations.
