Default Grim Misadventure #72: Enter the Sanctums

Welcome back to Grim Misadventures! Build 26 is now on the horizon and all the pieces of content are steadily falling into place. Act 3: Chapter 3 will take you beyond the northern gates of Homestead and out into the Blood Grove, a once bountiful region now overrun with the Cult of Ch’thon and their vile minions. But there are others out there, fighters pushing back against the corruption. I speak of the Kymon’s Chosen and the Order of Death’s Vigil.

With the release of Build 26, you will be able to enter the sanctuaries of these two opposing factions, depending on the one you side with, and begin your journey as either a Chosen or a Neophyte of the Order. Ulgrim is relying on you to turn these people into valuable allies for the Black Legion. Whichever you choose, they will prove to be a valuable asset in the battles ahead.

The sanctuaries of these factions are located at a ruined fort known as Sorrow’s Bastion. With both groups so close together, tensions run high and casualties are mounting. Before long, there may not be anyone to ally with at all.

The Order of Death’s Vigil



The Order’s sanctum was created using the Catacombs environment set. We originally showed off the Catacombs with a small 1-room layout in Act 3: Chapter 2, but the necromancer’s crypt takes full advantage of this environment set, with bone pits, desiccated remains and sarcophagi.




As you enter the Order’s sanctum, you will immediately be greeted by Master Varuuk, who will guide you on your first steps to serving the Order. But even the Order has secrets they will not so willingly share. Before you are allowed into the deepest reaches of the catacombs, you must first earn their favor.




Don’t let the crypts unsettle you. The dead only bite when told.


Kymon’s Chosen



The Fortress Underground is a new environment set featured prominently in Act 3 Chapter 3, including the sanctum of Kymon’s Chosen. The Chosen have settled in the tower of Sorrow’s Bastion. There, under the guidance of Father Kymon, they prepare to take the battle to the enemies of Cairn and cleanse their world of the tainted and the corrupt.




Brother Elluvius awaits you at the entrance, eager for another recruit to join Kymon’s cause. Very few are honored with missions from the Blessed Father himself. It will take dedication to prove yourself to the Chosen; and even among those the Father entrusts with Empyrion’s will, none have ever set foot within his private study. What hides beyond those gates? Only Kymon knows.




Siding with either faction is an entirely optional decision; but in the battles ahead, it is difficult to deny the resources they offer. Who will become your allies and who your sworn enemies?

Looking good as aways!

I've already favoured Kymon's Choosen for my main "Paladin" Commando, and their faction gears are awesome! (SoT is a cake walk now)

Can't wait to be able to enter Sorrow's Bastion...

Wait... does that means I can completely ignore both them?

I wonder if that will make both factions neutral or hostiles to me, if I were to ignore them completely...

You can choose to ignore them and they will stay neutral until you choose one.
