The Shrine of Chaos

Shrine of Chaos is located on the Serpent Isle and appears in Ultima VII Part Two.

Description[edit]

The heartpiece of the underground city of Skullcrusher is the Shrine of Chaos, also known as the Grand Shrine of Chaos.[1] It is the central place of the chaos-part of the religion of the Ophidians. The shrine also houses the Wall of Lights, allowing the Hierophant to enter the Void and consult the Chaos Serpent.[2]

After all followers of Chaos were slaughtered in the War of Imbalance, the Shrine became forgotten. Centuries later, the Avatar used this place to fuse the Banes of Chaos back together into the Chaos Serpent, using the Wall of Lights to return it to the void.[3]
