|Exploring the Shattered Citadel|
Exploring the Shattered Citadel is triggered when you do the Explore the Shattered Citadel action in Godfall.
"All the Neath is dark. The Citadel is dark as only a once-bright place can be. It hung up there among the false-stars, drowned in azure light, for... how long? Now it's here. So are you."
Game note: Very bad things will happen if you run out of candles.
In order to get anything at all from the citadel, a minimum of 8 x Foxfire Candles is required. Recommended more, because there is a chance of not going deeper into the tunnels.
Every time you unsuccessfully or successfully go deeper or go back, you will find an encounter based on your Nasty Things in the Dark level.
|Fumble in the dark
Somewhere - somewhere here is the way out. The darkness presses against you. Its breath is hot on your neck.
Was it you? Onwards. Quickly. Perhaps you can still make it out.
Here's the wall-crack that leads to the monastery-cellar.
Money changes hand between monks as you emerge, blinking, into the light of their lamps. It is their custom to make bets on the fate of travellers who enter the Citadel. Not all of them are cheering.
No one is left. Who is even reading this?
The Citadel lies on its side. All its halls and tunnels tilt crazily. Edge your way through, like an ant through a broken puzzle-box.
Go back. This isn't where you meant to be. You've gone no deeper, but what's this?
You've found your way deeper into the Citadel...
|Retrace your steps
Back - out? Up? Before? Very quickly, directions in here become impossible.
You're going the right way - but you've taken a turn you didn't intend. Where are you?
|Closer to safety
There you go. Familiar footsteps in the dust.
