• A powerful force known only as the Pathos of Alzadaal limits the abilities of all who enter, making them easy prey for the hordes of fiends waiting in the shadows. When adventurers begin a Salvage mission, they may have as many as 20 different limits hampering their abilities, equipment, attributes, and more. The only way to reach the guardian of the area and retrieve its treasure is to remove these limits. However, removing these limits requires the defeat of the other monsters roaming the remnants.

Historical Background

Pathos is a word in the English language which means a quality or characteristic which invokes emotions, particularly of sorrow or pity. In Ancient Greek, pathos referred to a rhetorical tactic, one which appealed to a person’s pride, to their feelings or to their public character (a form of persuasion; an emotional appeal). Pathos is Greek for “emotion” or “to suffer”.
