The last thing you recall is the world melting away, the only sensation left coming from the shard that Keeper Leena gave you. It softly resonating with your heartbeat, the pulse coming stronger and stronger as the world around you swirled together before you blacked out.

Now you have awoken and found yourself where you were before... but not. Keeper Leena is gone, the grass underneath you and the trees around you appear different, some new and some gone, some grown and some dying. This place is the same but, different. Where did the shard take you?

Show/HideFind safety in The Mountain Cave

Status: In Progress

You've seen more of your surroundings, and have found that this is indeed the world you know, but the land is growing weak and sickly, and over the cliff you can see a strange and disturbing sight. Skeletal soldiers, undead abominations, and even what appears to be living humans trapped in cages.

You feel so tired... whatever happened that brought you here took a toll on you. You think it would be best to enter the caves ahead and gather yourself.

Location: The Mountain Cave

Show/HideRest a moment and inspect the shard in The Mountain Cave

Status: In Progress

The Shard tore you from the world yet again, strange whispers speaking your mind of, "A ruined future." and "The fate of this world." You let the power of the shard take you, and the world melts away once again.

You wake to find yourself still in the cave, though now istead of being barren there are rows of cultivated mushrooms and several people with pale skin and strange clothes. Only a couple notice your appearance, the others are panicking and scrambling at the cave's edge. You can feel distant rumbles, the sound of cave-ins.

Location: The Mushroom Farm

Show/HideHead towards Last Refuge

Status: In Progress

After speaking with Elder Mossbern, you've learned that he and the other people in the cave fled from a city called Last Refuge in the wake of an attack by something called, The Void.

The cave has no other way out than the passage that they seem to have fled from, in the direction of the chaos they had fled. Unless you want to wait for the end alongside the others in this cave, the only path forward, the only way to find answers, is towards Last Refuge.

Speaking with Elder Mossbern is not necessary, advancing through the Last Refuge Outskirts will advance the quest.

The further you go the more you see of architecture built into the stone of the cave walls and chaos as the people of Last Refuge battle these creatures. Your only path is forward!
