The Eternal Darkness story begins here, in Ancient Persia, 26 B.C. Pious was a very skilled Roman warrior who got caught up with the Ancients and becomes one of the main antagonists in the game.
This story covers the time just before he became controlled. As Pious we explore a large temple under the sands in a desert. Pious is a skilled fighter and therefore has a lot of stamina and health. You can essentially run forever and he won't tire. Pious has been through a lot of war and seen absolute chaos. Because of this, the monsters cannot play with his mind; Pious has no Sanity meter. Also, because Pious never finds the Tome of Eternal Darkness, he has no magic meter either.
Only basic Mantorok Zombies can be found here. The best way to take these things down is by chopping off the head followed by both arms. Once they are head and armless, they will die immediately. When enemies lye on the ground after being defeated, walk up to them and press B to "finish" them off. In later chapters, this helps recover Sanity that the monster originally stole.
This chapter is pretty easy and shouldn't cause any trouble. At the very end you have the ability to choose between the essences of the three Ancients: Chattur'gha (red), Ulyaoth (Blue), and Xel'lotath (Green). If you choose Ulyaoth (like I do since I love Ulyaoth), for example, Pious will serve under Ulyaoth. It doesn't really matter who you pick, the only thing that changes are the enemies you face (if you pick Ulyaoth, you will usually face Ulyaoth-aligned enemies, for example), when you get certain items, and a few other things. I personally find Xel'lotath the easiest, followed by Ulyaoth. Chattur'gha is the hardest.
