12.1.4 The Cave

The Cave is more than a mystical place; it is connected with the gods themselves. 
It is the place where those who have embraced death and stood before Thoth, the 
God of Death, find themselves when they are returned to their mortal bodies. None 
may linger in the Cave, for to do so is to profane the divine power that has 
granted a second chance.

While none may enter the Cave without their spirit being moved there by Thoth, 
many find themselves, at one time or another, Outside the Cave. This place, 
located in the Western Ithmia forest, is a common meeting place and it would be to 
your advantage to get to know your way around its environs as soon as possible.

Because those who adventure upon the continent Meropis have traveled a great 
distance from the Cave, the Endbringer makes provision for their spirits by moving 
their mortal bodies to the Grotto when he returns them to life. Equal in power to 
the Cave, this sacred place lies within the Daoric Plains.
