Knowledge is a resource more precious and rare than most. The Nyx Wiki serves as a library and encyclopedia to ideas, concepts and content found along the River Styx! Adding things to the Wiki is also a great way to earn some extra Mana.

In this here almanac, studious souls can learn about Spirit Stakes, Items, Adaptables, Levels, Gameplay elements and technical concepts. The Knowledge base also serves as a resource for blockchain and web development terminology.

"The River" is made up of many locations, adaptables, items, spirit stakes, story pages, blockchain modules and more!

Each souls progress along the river is unique. Think of it as an RPG that "grows" with you.

As the current and flow of the river shifts, different options will become available here for you to explore.
