The Stilt Village is a fourth level biome.
This is the main settlement of the island. Here, the villagers would live a simple land. They would dine of the salty sea, casting the bait and nets for a little bite from a fish. Then, everyone started dying from the Malaise. At first, they quietly mourned their family, and wondered what higher power had they bothered to deserve this... But then, the ground opened up like a mouth; Not to swallow, but to spit out the undead, undead to drag them back into the mouth. The stilt village is a former shell of itself, and the crows are as numerous as the fish once were. Indeed, only the buildings, the insane scratchings, and the dead bodies of the villagers lay here as a reminder of what this once was. Now, no fish swims near the coast. The blood has made its way into the water, contaminating it, and providing a hazard for their life. Among the buildings and the nets, it is even more endangering. The fishermen now fish for live blood, finding the blood floating in the water too salty to drink.

Secret[edit | edit source]
There is the secret blueprint of the Parry Shield that can be accessed by skipping the middle door from above to keep one of the two Village Keys to use in an extra door through a secret passage next to the elevator at the ending of the level. You MUST HAVE the Ram Rune to access the secret passage, also the Spider Rune may make it easier for this but you can use an Amulet that gives you more jumps as well.
