Gods of the Grottos

After a long and varied path across the island, through the catacombs and up the escarpment we arrive in the city.

The time-shards converge here.

In the cathedral we enter each of the chapels/grottos dedicated to a god and talk with them.

The cathedral has feeling of an arbor. Compared to the catacombs there are two extra gods here: Caerlionael and Bardial.
