The Abyssal Mimir

You wanted to know the chant about the Abyss? You’re either an addle-cove or suicidal! I am the Mimir of the Nadir, a magical construct designed to provide information on all topics Abyssal.

Use the table below to search through my Index of the Abyss, a catalogue of all the chant that’s been recorded here on the topic. You can use the search box and filters to narrow down the data. For example, use the incantation ‘graz’zt’ to see all the entries featuring the Dark Prince and/or use the filters to show only the interdicted layers. You incorrigible rebel, you!

A disclaimer: By utilising this information, you acknowledge the risks that this is the Abyss, berk, and things change with the ill winds. Do not rely on this chant in a life-or-death-or-undeath situation.
