Without fear, you signed the contract which would forever sever your ties to the world above, and now it is your sworn duty to brave the abyss and uncover the secrets of the old world. Your death is guaranteed, but so is your status as a legend.


The ever-shifting abyss provides an adequate challenge to fearless dungeoneers, but don't get too reckless as you only have one life to prove yourself with. Central to this plight is the dynamic of holding your position and pushing ever forward as hoards of monsters try to break your foothold; they are quite numerous afterall, and you'd do well to stand your ground. Don't stall for too long however, or a terrifying force might make itself known and attempt to steal your glory!
