According to legend, several generations ago, people hid underground from the terrors that walked the land. Generations lived and died beneath the surface.
It is rumored that the people that lived during this time connected the various sewers, caves, tunnels and crypts, allowing them to travel across New Britannia undetected from the watchful eyes of the horrors that walked above.
My recent adventures have allowed me to map-out several underground areas. Although I have tried to be as meticulous as possible in both my observations and recordings; the toxic fumes, poor lighting and constant threat from creature both foul and villainous, have prevented me from conducting as thorough of a survey as I would have liked.
It is unclear how far my journeys will take me, or how much longer I will survive. Regardless, the work must continue… and so I submit these documents to your care so that you may continue to discover the mysteries that lay beneath and unlock the TRUTH.
