Default Grim Misadventure #110: Something Stirs Within the Pit...

Welcome back to the latest Grim Misadventure! We kicked 2017 off with an absolutely packed list of everything that had happened last year (and left off with a small teaser of whatís still in store). Today, we are going to go deeper, far deeper than anyone on Cairn has ever gone before (or have they?).

But first, some update news on the game. With last monthís release of V1.0.0.7, we were actually working on another hotfix to resolve a few issues that we have fixes for and to address some feedback regarding the distribution of Defensive Ability at higher levels, particularly for casters. As it turns out, this hotfix has grown far beyond the scope of just a small patch and it no longer seemed appropriate to call it V1.0.0.7 Hotfix 3, so we are going to skip right to V1.0.0.8! Stay tuned on the forum as we reveal the upcoming updateís changelog in the coming days.

From the last GM#109, we warned you of a particular new breed of fiend that approaches in the expansion.

It appears that none have heeded our warning though and are still here to witness its arrival, so be itÖ

Chthonian Servitor
In the blackest depths of the void, the antithesis of life and creation itself thrives. Here, at the Voidís Edge, Chíthonís most powerful minions make their home. From here, they emerge to wreak terror upon the physical realm and gather the blood that was brutally stolen from the dead god, Chíthon.

It is here that the mighty Loghorrean was spawned, and it is here that it returned upon its demise. It is also here that Chíthonís most vile collectors of blood were spawned. Known as Servitors, these creatures exists for a single purpose: gathering the life blood of mortal beings and returning it to its rightful owner.

Eager to fill their ventral sacs to the brim with precious crimson, the Servitors can sense blood from incredible distances and will descend upon their prey with hungering haste. Tread carefully when entering the void, lest you encounter these horrors and become another desiccated corpse.

Chthonian Rylok
Should you ever find yourself within the Voidís Edge, which would surely never happen as such a traumatizing event would certainly spell your doom and a swift end to your adventures, you will quickly discover that the blood-sucking Servitors are the least of your concerns. For here, in the deepest reaches of depravity dwell the masters of this hellish realm.

Known only as Ryloks, these terrifying brutes wield the powers of the void as if it were a plaything. They thrive upon darkness and flame, upon misery and death. They are the overlords of this black realm and to encounter even one is a testament to your ill fortunes.

Yet even among the Ryloks, a sort of hierarchy has naturally formed. Most have become crippled by vicious competitions for power, their back limbs torn off in symbolism of defeat to their greaters. They now exist only to serve those Ryloks that proved to be the victors in these brutal displays and it is the triumphant terrors that you must be certain to avoid should you find yourself traversing the Voidís Edge.

Like knowing what is coming up next for Grim Dawn? Check back on 02/06/2017 for our next development update!

This is excellent news, because a variety of chthonian used to be very limited
