Perils of Petrichor V
The inhabitants of Petrichor V are as diverse as the many planets they have once called home. As these monsters neared extinction on their own worlds, a mysterious force brought them to Petrichor V. The planet quickly became a menagerie of the most dangerous monsters in the galaxy, and they weren’t fazed by intruders (aka YOU).
Artifacts breaking the rules
Variety is the spice of destruction. Choose from more than 10 artifacts, each of which changes your run! Maybe you’d like to start with a random item of equipment that changes every time it’s used, or maybe you’d like to experience a rampant Imp invasion every 10 minutes. Play with artifact combinations and discover exciting new ways to play.
