LIMSPACE CLASSIFICATION


Survival Difficulty 2/5 While typically not dangerous, this space can become hazardous to traverse if not equipped with ample items to assist travel.
Hazard Level 3/5 Wind can become exceedingly dangerous, especially on ledges of terrain.
Chaos Rating 1/5 The limspace is unchanging and static. The only source of chaos can be its winds and frigid temperature.
Basset-Frazier Index 2/5 Dull and empty in nature. This limspace provides little to nothing for habitation and should not be traversed. Nothing of interest resides here.

LIMSPACE OVERVIEW

Some state the dense thickets appear eerily akin to distorted limbs, provoking stories of spiritual nature around this limspace.

The Timeless Descent is a colossal, dull expanse, typically appearing similar to a vast, spire-like mountain. It is composed of cliffs, dense clusters of flora, and occasional pathways integrated into the surface. Trees and floral life flourish despite the limspaces unchanging nature and can be frequently encountered at every interval of the landscape, yet in spite of any lively features, this flora remains static and unmoved despite harsh influxes of wind. The idle nature of everything makes the scape achieve a dead, lifeless aura amongst an individual's travels. The air is frigid and accompanied by a thick fog, with this persistent chill often warranting countermeasures to be taken for those who partake in expeditions, as coating is often utilised. A consistent white noise of howling wind permeates throughout the limspace, never ceasing, whether wind is present or not.

While infrequent, weather events may occur. Typically presenting itself as a small drizzle of rain, it is often perceived as no more than a slight inconvenience; however, hostile occurrences such as sudden gales can prove to be volatile to travellers within the Timeless Descent, as they appear without warning.1 These winds can unbalance those traversing the environment and throw them into possible trees, rocks or any other objects, often concussing a wanderer or smashing their skull. Thus it is advised to find an object to grip onto or shelter behind as to evade the wind. Do NOT attempt any traversal across thin ledges while wind is present, lest you wish to have a fate at the bottom of the smog-ensnared void.

The peak, with the fog rearing itself further.

Ascending and descending the mountain is acutely difficult to achieve. The pathways ingrained into the earth spiral around the limspace and allow for an easy travel upward and downward. The further you arise the less frequent thickets become, rock formations begin to appear, gales become more frequent, and a thick layer of snow may appear as you rear toward the peak. If you travel parallel to the peak and choose to descend, this often leads to the fog getting thinner, thickets becoming more frequent, and notable ruins of structures appearing. While exact details of these ruins vary, they often depict the appearance of a church. These structures are enigmatic in origin, but theories suppose these moribund structures are possible remnants of long deceased outposts.

The capability that often deters a vast majority of individuals to descend the Timeless Descent is the limspaces time dilation properties. While often negligible as long as a wanderer ascends the mountain, it becomes excessively more prevalent the further ones depth is. After exceeding a certain depth, time is notably altered as any action performed is protracted, the wind is sluggish, and the howls of wind lower in pitch. If a wanderer is still persistent to dive into the depth of the mountain, the magnitude of the slow of time will be increased further each step. Eventually after straying too deep into the Timeless Descent, one will be trapped in a cease of time, doomed to eternally be stuck in the clusters of thickets, fog, and isolation. It is unknown whether victims trapped within the cease of time can still attain a form of thought process, though it is highly hypothesised that victims still are aware of their environment.

Recommended Equipment
It is advisable to equip yourself with something to retain warmth such as coats, jackets, and any other item that can provide ample assistance. If your not able to attain any item to keep oneself warm, it is advised to grab a large cluster of floral life and use them as a makeshift shelter.

Finding any item that can claim a firm grip on surfaces are also advised. Simple items such as ice axes or even large sticks should be enough to ensure safety in the scenario of getting suddenly impacted with powerful gales.

Valuable Resources
The Timeless Descent is utterly devoid of any value. No resources are provided throughout travel across the desolate mountain.

Recommended Actions
Make sure time spent in the space is acute. Do not stray here long as there are no resources for nourishment. Always be prepared for sudden gales to occur while travelling, as well as being adequately equipped with items to assist possible travel.

Do not traverse deeper into the mountain. Nothing awaits except a perpetual condemnation to the environment of the Timeless Descent.


ENTRANCES AND EXITS


Entrances

While the general location of this limspaces entrance are enigmatic; it is believed there is an entrance present within Birmingham that allows for entry to this limspace.

Exits

If one is to travel up the mountain they will eventually reach the peak of it. Once reaching it they will be ensnared in smog and sent back to baseline.
