In-Game Text

"He who sings scares away his woes."


Some music is so elegant that it is as if nature herself transforms to compliment the note.
Aeolian will cause a Pilgrim's music to change the Biomes around him or her depending on the instrument used.

  • NOTE* Not all instruments will change Biomes. Only those which can be found in the elusive Mystery Music Box have this ability.

Making Music

With the Musician Skill learned, and any Instrument equipped, pilgrims may play Notes icon.png Notes at the cost of 1,000x points of Inspiration per Note to lower your Insanity. Playing Notes on a Mystery Music Box icon.png Mystery Music Box Instrument additionally will reduce the Insanity of nearby pilgrims as well, and with the Aeolian Skill learned, change the biome of a random tile around you to the that Instrument's biome type.
