General information[edit | edit source]
Access and exit[edit | edit source]
The Throne Room can be accessed from either High Peak Castle, Derelict Distillery, or Guardian's Haven. An exit leading to Prisoners' Quarters is available after. In 5 BSC difficulty, another exit to Astrolab is also available.
For the first time HOTK is defeated, after the player's body is destroyed, leaving them with just a head, they will have to enter a fountain's front nozzle in order to end the run. In future runs, they will have to enter in a similar fashion, though they need to detach their head with the Homuculus rune instead.

Lore[edit | edit source]
This room has a strange, enchanted beauty to it. While decay of the island is fully visible below, one may find a calm and serene beauty in it all. The beautiful starry sky is visible, and a fountain slowly pours its heart out. The main feature, of course, is the throne, with the King silently sitting... Dead silent. Just before him watches the Hand of the King, ever vigilant. In your time of appreciating the beauty, he has spotted you... And you're an intruder. A spell fizzles around the king in a protective matter, and the massive man(?) charges forth towards you. He roars at you. One more enemy to finish off to complete your goal... But what's one more to a thousand? Sooner or later, after you turn his body into broken flesh... It's the king next. And then, it is time to make it all change.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- This biome used to be referred to as the "Guardian's Haven" in the Steam achievements, which might mean that its name was changed later.
