General information[edit | edit source]
Access and exit[edit | edit source]
The biome exits to the Clock Room. After beating the Giant once and with two or more Boss Stem Cells active, the Beheaded can also exit to the Guardian's Haven through a door near the Clock Room exit.
The Darkness[edit | edit source]
The Darkness is a mechanic found only in the Forgotten Sepulcher, unless the Custom Mode gameplay modifier Follow the Light is enabled. The level appears dark except for permanent and temporary light sources, which illuminate small areas around them. The temporary sources are activated when the Beheaded touches them and burn out after a while.
If the Beheaded has been away from the light for 12 seconds, the Darkness begins to eat away at its health. The damage gradually increases from 0.1 to 6 per tick, with ticks every 0.3 seconds. Going near a light stops the damage and resets the 12-second timer and damage per tick. Killing an enemy reduces the Darkness by 11%.
Level characteristics[edit | edit source]
Scrolls[edit | edit source]
The Forgotten Sepulcher contains 5 Power Scrolls and no dual-stat scrolls. These can spawn in areas requiring the Teleportation Rune, but not the Spider Rune.

Secret areas[edit | edit source]
The blueprint for the Hayabusa Boots is found in a secret area behind a locked door near the Clock Room exit. To reach it, the Beheaded must defeat two Elite Dark Trackers. These two Elites will always be present, and the blueprint will be replaced by a gem or item on subsequent visits.

Loading screen quotes[edit | edit source]
- "High-ranking dignitaries were embalmed in sarcophagi. After a somewhat brutal ceremony, the skulls of their delegation were used to decorate the walls of the chamber."
- "Once reserved for high-ranking dignitaries, the sepulcher became a tortuous labyrinth, its reaches fading into obscurity and myth..."

Notes[edit | edit source]
Before the v1.1 Pimp My Run Update, the 26 minutes timed door used to reward the player with 2 Power Scrolls, making it a very lucrative level. These scrolls were removed with the rework of timed doors. To compensate for this change, the scroll count was changed from 3 Power Scrolls/2 Dual Scrolls to 5 Power Scrolls only. Thus, the Sepulcher remains the biome with the most guaranteed stats in the game.
