Massive skeletons and pools of tar are littered around, and a towering aqueduct pouring down tar dominates the area.

Pressure Plates[edit | edit source]

Whenever the player enters the Abandoned Aqueduct two pressure plates will spawn in randomly selected locations on the map. When both are activated at the same time the Ancient Gate located at the back of the map will open.

Upon entering through the Ancient Gate, players will encounter two unique Elite Elder Lemurians; Kjaro and Runald. Upon their death, they will drop a Kjaro's Band.pngKjaro's BandBgUncommon.pngKjaro's Band.pngHigh damage hits also blasts enemies with a runic flame tornado. Recharges over time.

Day 0
Nightmare. I find myself in the middle of a desert - with no other survivors in sight. I scavenged for resources, but soon giant insects began to crawl out of the earth and take aggressive stances. Once they gathered their numbers - and presumably their confidence - they charged me. 

In avoiding their assault, I slipped and fell backwards into a waterfall of mysterious liquid. I tumbled within as it rushed me down, deep into an underground cavern. I crawled out, and thankfully the insects have stopped following me. I may have broken my leg - but thankfully CHIT(?) I have a healing drone to administer aid. It will take a few days to get my strength back. 

Day 1
I am grateful that I repaired this drone before my untimely tumble - I would assuredly be dead without it. My vision is blurry - I fear I have also suffered a CHIT concussion. My leg has begun to feel better. I will have to continue to wait. I grow hungry.

Day 2
My healing drone has stopped giving me aid. It hovers far away now - and moves back as I move forward. I've been feeling nauseous, and have been feeling the urge to CHIT CHIT vomit. I occasionally spit out black liquid - I fear something is gravely wrong.

Day 3
My CHIT CHIT drone has left.  I have CHIT lost my vision. My mouth and eyes fill with foul dark liquid. I am alone.

Day 9
