Opponent Encounter Text Notes
Eclipse.jpg? Twisted Hound Between the stony walls, you can hear distant howls. Soon, something approaches, bringing those howls near it as it does. Possibly only with Song of the Hunt or just coincidence?
Twisted Hound The scent of blood fills the air as a set of claws cut through the air, leaving a bleeding hole. A crystalline beast pulls its way through the hole, snarling at you as it approaches. After some amount of progress?
Eclipse.jpg Undead Tyrant As you pass between the cave walls, you hear a tremendous thump. You could almost convince yourself that it's a sound effect if it didn't vibrate through the floor that way.

Glancing back, you see a massive, dead shape looming over you.

You've gained 20 duration of Primeval Terror.
Horrific Spider Something emerges from the mists, clamoring over the web-covered walls. It seems perfectly at home here, snaring you in its web as it approaches. Gain 1 duration of Webbed. Only after descending into the caves?
Eclipse.jpg Twisted Houndx3 Three shapes lope out of the mists towards you, two approaching from the front while the third expertly cuts off your easiest route of escape. Only after descending into the caves?
2 Twisted Hounds, Horrific Spider Unnatural howls pursue you through the hall, finally catching up as a massive web snags down to trap you. It's perfect… almost as though they planned it out among themselves somehow. Gain 1 duration of Webbed. Only after descending into the caves?
Midgard Aide A young worker stops a fair distance from you. "It seems warnings won't suffice. I'm sorry, but you forced me to do this."

He looks down at his datareader, reading something out loud that you can't quite parse, as shapes begin flickering in the shadows around him.
Only after extensive exploration of the caves (after Halloween Evacuation, near Wall of Noise was unlocked.
