The Lost Labyrinth: When a Jacadon dies it turns to stone, which has led people to believe that the labyrinth is really the ‘Guts of Rynmere’, the stony innards of the mighty beast defeated by the Sacred Seven. It was found by a lone explorer who wrote about his discovery over several books, documenting what he saw and found during his time exploring the twists and turns of the Labyrinth, which he believed to be located somewhere beneath the region of Burhan. Many have gone looking for the tunnels leading to the Labyrinth via Nora’s Rest and Warren’s Peak, but there have been no successful discoveries since, leading most to believe that the myth of The Lost Labyrinth is little more than a fairytale.

The walls of the Labyrinth are said to be lined with human bones, believed to be the remains of thousands of mortals that the Jacadon feasted on and carried back to its young. There is a difference between a maze and a labyrinth, however, and perhaps this is why none have ever stumbled upon its location since the lone explorer, his name lost to history, while his work and legends live on.

The Labyrinth is a Moderated Location which you must require permission to write about in your threads.

Labyrinths and mazes have often been confused. When most people hear of a labyrinth they think of a maze. A labyrinth is not a maze. A maze is like a puzzle to be solved. It has twists, turns, and blind alleys. It is a left brain task that requires logical, sequential, analytical activity to find the correct path into the maze and out.

A labyrinth has only one path. It is unicursal. The way in is the way out. There are no blind alleys. The path leads you on a circuitous path to the center and out again.

A labyrinth is a right brain task. It involves intuition, creativity, and imagery. With a maze many choices must be made and an active mind is needed to solve the problem of finding the center. With a labyrinth there is only one choice to be made. The choice is to enter or not. A more passive, receptive mindset is needed. The choice is whether or not to walk a spiritual path.

At its most basic level the labyrinth is a metaphor for the journey to the center of your deepest self and back out into the world with a broadened understanding of who you are.
