Wizardry Variants Daphne

The portal of despair opens again. The labyrinth, with its lure to destruction, continues to entice warriors, and annihilate them.

Ye Traveler. Revel in the endless dangers that close in, relish the risk, devour the rewards. Savor the risk.


Once every 100 years, the Abyss opens. It is a curse of death that consumes the continent. A Warlock who coveted Death, devoured people and animals and enveloped the world in despair.

For thousands of years the line of kings has sealed the Abyss. But now, the king has vanished, and the world is being consumed by death, moment by moment. Resistance itself is meaningless. There is naught but to perish.

How to Play

One of Wizardry Variants Daphne’s key features is that it is played entirely in firstperson. You will feel as if you have stepped into the Abyss yourself, experiencing the realism of monster attacks, various lurking dangers such as floor traps, and exploring the dungeon with other adventurers.
