A labyrinth adventure for
hours of entertainment
In Torchlight, word of Ember blazed across the land, and the town of
Torchlight flared to life. Ember is the essence of magic and
the keystone of alchemy; it lures the restless with the promises of
power and riches. As miners burrow deep beneath Torchlight's
dirt streets for veins of the rich ore, they discover a buried past - a
dangerous labyrinth of caverns and ruined civilizations, twisted
creatures and the bones of those who came before.
Evil bubbles up from the depths and threatens to overrun the
town as the heart of a villain infuses Ember. To survive, the
townspeople need a champion who can destroy the evil at its root and
break the cycle of destruction.
This adventure is set in the mining settlement of Torchlight, a
boomtown founded on the discovery of rich veins of Ember - a rare and
mysterious ore with the power to enchant or corrupt all that it
contacts. That corruptive power may have dire consequences
however, and players set out into the nearby mountains and depths
below to discover the full extent of Ember's influence on civilizations
that have come before. As champion, you must battle through
rock and fire, through lost cities and ancient tombs, into the palace
of the villain himself.
