Ancient Mystery

At the start of the first encounter here ask:

What mystery of the old world do you find here?

Learning this place’s name unlocks:

A Mysterious Place

Explore this place to gather awareness.


The old world left many mysteries for succeeding generations, from questions like why they left behind the structures they did and what purpose they served, to questions like why their global civilization fell, which might arise any time the people of the Fifth World encounter their relics. Some places might have more specific, localized mysteries, like the purpose of an ancient bunker or the story behind an enigmatic monument.
