The waters of Abydos were infested by electric eels, creating a hostile environment loathed by the inhabitants of the rich and beautiful city. Overall misfortune plagued Abydos, such as the theft of the valuable Abydos Jewels and the poisoning of the Mayor.
It was later discovered that the mayor's advisors were behind the release of the eels, the stealing of the jewels, and the poisoning of the Mayor. It is also believed that they placed the piranhas in the Abydos Canal, though it is never revealed.
With the help of Tutankhamen, the jewels were gradually restored. It is unknown what happened to Abydos after the defeat of Set, though it is assumed that the eels were driven out and that the city's peace and progress resumed.
Abydos was a bright, rich city surrounded by eel-infested water. Several canals cut through the city with graceful bridges that would span over them, allowing inhabitants to walk over the dangerous water. A number of pyramids could be seen soaring over the city along with statues of the god Anubis decorating the white walls in the city.
Many ziplines ran between homes, serving as an alternative way of transportation. To maintain sanitation, sewers could be found beneath the city. These canals could be reached by falling down the well or by opening a door. Oddly, Abydos' Portal God is located down in the sewers, though this seems highly disrespectful.
At the town square, there was a way to enter the Abydos Museum and the upper area. In the upper area, there were many shops and businesses, such as Montu's Monster Shop and Kemmet the Inventor's home. Beyond several canals lies the Council Chamber Courtyard.

Connection with Ancient EgyptEdit
- There are statues of Anubis throughout the city. It is likely a tribute to the god of death, who gave the Mayor the Sacred Crown of Abydos.
- It is one of the safest locations in the game, yet due to the Museum, it has the greatest amount of Monsters.
- Due to the Fortune Teller and the Scribe's request to meet Sphinx later, some players have taken to exploring and mapping every inch of the city in an attempt to find their homes, but in vain.
- Abydos' design appears inspired by the Italian city of Venice, having multiple canals and being built directly on top of the ocean. The large bridge near Kemmet's home greatly resembles the Rialto Bridge.
