Shrine 1 Shrine 2

Curious and ancient shrines adorn the caverns of the underworld that are magically infused with chaotic powers from centuries ago. Although most shrines are beneficial, others are not. Their magical enhancements tend to come at a cost, and it is up to you to recognize which shrine is which so that you may measure its benefits against its setbacks before you indulge. This information details the precise effects of all existing shrines. With such knowledge, you may wisely select from their mixed blessings.
