The Palace of the Pharaoh is the second map of Hub 3: Thysis of Hexen II. It is a large and opulent palace with a grand entrance, a great throne room and the Dark Pharaoh's personal bedroom. This magnificent exterior conceals a number of hidden tunnels and chambers as well.

The Pharaoh's tomb is hidden somewhere within the palace, and beyond it is a gateway to the afterlife.


The player's immediate goal upon discovering this area is to find and retrieve the Scarab of Time. The next major task is to find the Pharaoh's tomb and embark upon the long quest to collect the four Canopic Jars.

The Pharaoh's journey cannot begin unless his Scepter has been returned to its rightful place at the Pyramid of Anubis.
