The Invocation is the 9th chapter of the Main Quest, given and completed in Egypt (Act II) and following The Blindness of the Gods. The chapter starts when you bring the Scroll of Invocation (obtained from the Rhakotis Library) to Imhotep in Memphis.
Imhotep will study the scroll only to learn, that two additional artifacts are needed to perform the Ceremony of Invocation, which would allow the people to communicate with the gods again. These artifacts are the Hand of Balance and the Eye of Chaos. The Hand of Balance must be retrieved in Giza, from The Great Sphinx. It is protected by the Pharaoh's Honor Guard, four large statues, which need to be defeated. The Eye of Chaos can be found in the Temple of Atum, located to the north-east of the Fayum Oasis. It is guarded by Nehebkau the Scorpion King, a Scorpos hero monster.
Return with both artifacts in your inventory to Imhotep in Memphis. Imhotep will try to perform the Ceremony of Invocation but fail. However, the Gate to Thebes will open, completing this chapter. The next chapter starts, A Telkine in Egypt.
- Attempting to complete the quest with just one artifact will make Imhotep tell you to go and find the other one. It is possible for the quest to break when handing in the Eye and Hand, being told to bring "the other" item. Dropping both artifacts on the ground is enough to resolve this, with the quest resuming once you have collected the items again.
- (Anniversary edition) The Eye of Chaos will not drop if the game speed if higher than "normal". If this happens, restart the game on normal speed.
