It is not the length of the scroll that counts but how you well you wield it.

Quick, notify Brendan Fraser!

Just in time. I'd been hearing that we were running out of old broken statues, ruined scrolls, and mummified corpses.

Damn it!!!   I should be in Egypt working on these mummies. * shakes fist at Fate*

Mummies weigh in at a few kilos and are incredible fragile. You could send 10 year-olds out with softball bats and they'd have loads of fun seeing what the smallest bits still capable of moving around are.

So they found the equivalent of a large bible in a dead guy's room and people are thinking magical doom will descend on us?

Imagine what will happen to all those hippies who smoked a J using a page from a Gideon's in a budget motel room!
