Default Grim Misadventure #94: Something Stirs within the Shadows

Grim Misadventures continues! Modding tools are coming posthaste (by the end of this month for sure). The documentation, which will provide a basic intro to the game’s various tools, is now ready and we are working on a few more final details that need to be resolved before we can hand the tools out to the public. Needless to say though, we are excited to see what the community is going to do with them.

But there are darker things happening within Grim Dawn than the modding tools. As the world of Cairn crumbles, something stirs…





Little is known about the Witch Gods, but that is precisely how the Three prefer to operate, from the shadows, away from prying eyes and the heavy hand of the Empire. The Inquisitors are well-versed in sniffing out followers of the heretical faith, but even they have not been able to completely eradicate what is widely considered a danger to the integrity and well-being of the nation. But that is the rhetoric of the ignorant, of those afraid of what truths may lie within the shadows.

Then there are those who had witnessed the power of the eldritch realm, and the gods that reside within. They are the raving thralls of Dreeg, the power-hungry worshippers of Solael and the scheming followers of Bysmiel. To them, the Empire only seeks to obscure the real truths, to silence them from spreading the message bestowed upon them by the Three.

With the Empire in shambles and the world forever changed by the arrival of the Aetherials, something has stirred within the eldritch realm. And as their hour nears, thousands of believers worshipping in secret await the call when at last the Witch Gods rise from the eldritch weave and reclaim their world.

The Luminari can no longer stop you, the Empire cannot condemn you. And if you seek out the Hidden Path, you too shall lift the veil that blinds you from the darker truths. You too shall learn of the Witch Gods.

The Hidden Path is an upcoming free content update for Grim Dawn, featuring new lore, new bosses and a new dungeon.

Like knowing what is coming up next for Grim Dawn? Check back on 04/18/2016 for the next Grim Misadventure.

Nice! Was hoping something would come of that! Was playing multiplayer recently and a buddy saw that insignia and asked me what it did. I told him nothing "yet". /notletdown

Sometimes I wonder what's the point of a great story, while it will all end in pew pew ?
