But beware: a mummy in your inventory has a chance to come to life and attack you! This event can occur when resting in the open. Carrying a mummy can also initiate an argument with natives in villages, who will demand the player to return the mummy to them. Higher levels of sanity and standing may decrease the likelihood of these events.These negative events will not occur if a mummy is stored at a missionor on the ship. Stash a mummy as soon as possible to avoid its possible negative effects.
