Big thanks to Marc Thompson who figured out much of the Dark Forest treatment.
After losing your light to Dominous Ghaul, Mission Rise allows players to regain their power and subclass abilities. Rise marks a continued upswing in the narrative after players lose their powers. In Rise, players lack their power and death is still a threat. We also reintroduce players to the Fallen combatant race. It is also the first glimpse players get of the EDZ.
I did the initial architecting and finishing for these environments with some alterations after I rolled off. My personal goals were to create a space that challenged powerless players without being too overwhelming for newbies. I also wanted to make sure players received a proper first step into the idea of the EDZ.
