The Hellish Abyss is a memo in Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly. This file is obtained after viewing the Folklorist's Note number 9 in Chapter 4.
Fatal Frame IIEdit
|The enormous pit at the site where the Forbidden Ritual was performed was called "the Hellish Abyss".
The villagers believed it was the entrance to hell, and threw the Crimson Sacrifice into it to appease the darkness and keep it from spilling out and covering the village.
In All God's Village, it was forbidden to approach this site or even to speak its name.
In books, the name of this forbidden place was only written as "the ✻".
Anyone who looked into the Hellish Abyss's darkness would die in madness.
Those who performed the Hellish Abyss's rituals were called "The Mourners".
Their eyes were sewn shut so they couldn't see. Anyone who tried to look into the Hellish Abyss was also called "The Mourners", and had their eyes sewn shut, too.
Fatal Frame II: Deep Crimson ButterflyEdit
|The vast rift in the earth where the Hidden Ceremony takes place is known as the Abyss.
It is believed to be the gate of Hell, and it is said that if it is not appeased by casting sacrifices to it, the darkness within it will break loose and cover the village.
In Minakami Village, it is strictly forbidden to approach this place, or even utter its name.
Writings on this forbidden place refer to it only with an ✻.
It is said that those who gaze into the Abyss will be driven to despair and die.
Those who oversee the ceremony are ranged around the edge of the Abyss, are known as Mourners. Their eyes are sewn shut so that they may not see what lies within the terrible chasm.
Those who disobey the strictures forbidding them to look into the Abyss are punished by having their eyes sewn shut and being forced to join the ranks of the Mourner.
