Undying Shores

From Dead Cells Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
No one really knows what the habitants of the Undying Shores were accused of. After all, "crimes against the crown" can mean many things.
Apostates were respected healers before the King chased them from the island. In spite of their medical advancements, some found their methods unpalatable.
Knowledge progresses much faster without moral constraints. Apostates have become very knowledgeable.
The most senior of the King’s medical advisors was put to death. No one knows exactly why, some say he failed the King, some say he was caught robbing graves.
This hideout was used by smugglers before it served as an escape from the King’s wrath. The smugglers were rather disgruntled by the development of events.
Beyond their gruesome but physical experiments, the Apostates seem to have been tampering with some of the more ancient artefacts present on the coast of the Island.
Even before the Malaise outbreak really took hold on the Island, there were rumors of strange experiments and sightings of vile creatures close to the Shores.
Who said the dead were useless?

The Undying Shores is a fifth level biome exclusive to the Fatal Falls DLC.

It is home to what was once a secretive group of necromancers known as the Apostates, which have now succumbed to the Malaise just like the rest of the Island, yet the horrific results of their experiments still continue to live on.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Alchemist grimoire[edit | edit source]

A desk can be found with research notes.

  • "The Apostates' research on death and cellular decay were far more advanced than what I've seen elsewhere...."
  • "They seem to endure better than the rest of the island."
  • "We shared knowledge, and they handed me some precious samples. There may be another way to endure the Malaise..."

Inside the same room, a cell vat can be found. The Beheaded will comment on it if inspected.

  • "This feels uncomfortably familiar..."

Boat[edit | edit source]

Behind a door there can be found a boat abandoned halfway through construction.

  • "Wooden boats. They wanted to flee."
  • "Why did some stay?"

Cell vat room[edit | edit source]

Behind a door, a giant room can be found with huge cell vats spread over three levels. Some are broken, some contain human remains, and some are filled with a mysterious liquid and a Cell. At the top level there is a desk on which a skull rests. In the background, plans can be seen that contain the symbol of the Beheaded. Upon inspecting the skull, the Beheaded says the following:

  • "Seems oddly familiar."

Bench with a letter[edit | edit source]

A letter can be found next to a bench overlooking the Lighthouse.

  • "The Apostates didn't fare any better than the rest of us."
  • "Moments of consciousness are becoming rarer and shorter... I won't make it to the Lighthouse."
  • "Maybe I'll find a decent place to rest down there"
  • "...?"

A soldier's remains[edit | edit source]

In a room with a desk, there is a skeleton laying on said desk, next to some weapons and pieces of armor. A note next to the desk reads:

  • "The Apostates fled when they saw us approach... The King is right, they must be behind that sickness!"
  • "I'm staying here with a few of my men while the others are going back to the Castle, with all the Apostates' scrolls and books that we could gather."
  • "Maybe the Alchemist can find a remedy in there?"
