The air was cool as I descended the stone mausolean stairs, reaching out into the eveloping blackness for something to keep me upright. The room stank of death as I delved deeper into the dreaded necropolis, some detestable ichor dripping from the ceiling onto my coat.
I was witness to amorphous shadows creeping around me, possibly tricks of the wan moon. I approached a decrepit stone altar and beheld a basalt statue carved into an alien shape, a mass of tentacles protruding from what I was sure was it’s cephalopod like face. I thrust it aside and saw that it was sitting atop a rectangular plastic box. I held my torch up to the cursed object and could not muffle the terrible scream that rang out of my lungs. The box read: Darkness Within 2: The Dark Lineage.
