Wow, those ring things are all over the place, huh? And what's with all the mist in the air?


image

Why, those are the souls of the dead, of course.


image

The air is dead people?!


image

No wait, you're just trying to scare me. Obviously all the dead people are walking on the ground, I can see them.

Hey, that one looks like a bunny! Hi ghost bunny!

Pitiful, aren't they? The Phantoms of this realm wander restlessly, clinging to the faintest memories of their former selves. Some are stubborn souls who refuse to accept their fate, while others have yet to even realize they have died at all.

Regardless, all of them lack the power to ever escape from this place.

That's...

That sucks! I don't wanna walk around another dumb boring wasteland forever after I die!

Come on, are you sure this isn't just where all the bad people go?


image

All souls are equal in death, Nhimor. There's no use crying over spilled blood.


image

Fortunately, becoming a phantom is just another step on a soul's metaphysical journey - it is never the final destination. Sooner or later, they will realize their fate is sealed, and they will... give in.


image

Give in to what? Aren't they already dead?

Don't worry, you'll understand soon enough. Now come along, I have a few more things to show you while we're here.
