Welcome to the Eternal Lies Wiki page. What will unfold are a variety of pieces that need entries but may not fit anywhere else. Below are listings for items and clues that will be found ‘in game’ and at the bottom a growing collection of useful resources for players, more so than for characters.

Everything from thrilling locations to mysterious hubs of cult activity will end up materializing on the list.
In investigations into the unknown, it is not uncommon for unusual items to be found and examined. Those will be listed here.
