The Ossuary is a dark and corrupted world...

The Ossuary is the fourth episode of Heretic, and part of the Shadow of the Serpent Riders expansion.


Having defeated D'Sparil in his Underwater Lair, Corvus finds himself within the shattered remnants of a world conquered by the Serpent Rider a long time ago (most likely one of the Outer Worlds).

The episode's theme is that of a broken and corrupted world, littered with ruins and old corpses. Its overall style is a mixture of the level styles from City of the Damned and Hell's Maw. The only way out of this cursed realm is through a portal at the heart of the ravaged world, which is protected by fearsome guardians and leads to The Stagnant Demesne.

The portal is guarded by a horde of Iron Liches (5-9, depending on the skill level), the bosses of this episode.
