Lore[edit | edit source]

Fossils. Remnants. How cruel. 

This moon once housed life. Life that you may have held dear, had the timing been right. But our timing was wrong. We were born much too late.

Now, it is just calcium to me – and irrelevant to you. Isn’t that right?

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The item being a nautilus shell and the item's title containing "Drowned" could possibly be a reference to an achievement from the original Risk of Rain, "Sleepin' With The..." in which the player had to kill 20 Whorls by drowning them. Additionally, to "drown" the Whorls, the player needed to knock them off of cliffs. The unlock requirement for this item requires the player to do the same to 20 Hermit Crabs, another shelled creature.
