Left - Map of the 9 Rings. Right - the 9 Rings of Hell.

For Overworld Events, see: Overworld Events

The Rings of Hell (or Rings) are the different sections of the game. There are 9 rings in total.

Each ring contains a number of Event locations which provide beneficial effects. There is a small amount of randomness as to which events appear in a run.

Rings after the first have two branching paths, and you may only visit the locations on one side. Selecting an event (or moving to either branch) causes the other side's events to become inaccessible. Some rings also have a central location at the bottom which may be accessed from either path.

Gameplay alternates between Overworld Events and Battles. The overworld events are focused around improving your deck and resources while the enemies are encountered in the Battles. Which events and battles will be encountered depends on the ring and chosen path. Moving to the Battle icon will trigger a Battle with one of the available Bosses for the respective ring. When defeated, they will drop spoils like coins, two selections of three cards (one per clan) and other components beneficial to your run. Once a battle has been fought, the previous events will be inaccessible.

Limbo[]

This wasteland has always been the desolate crossing into Hell. It serves as a buffer, the first Ring of Hell, and the only separation from Heaven. The ice only turned an endless desert into an endless tundra.

The Waxen Arches[]

Across this waxen landscape, ever-growing arches can be seen, made of the remains of the Melting Remnant souls who've climbed to the top in search of rumored wealth. The survivors built Votive Houses throughout the Ring. The houses serve as sanctuaries for those who hope to melt faster, or not to melt at all.
