A small dimensional rift that exists between Drangleic and the outside world,
this seemingly peaceful limbo serves as a gateway between the two realms.
It lies deep within a shadowy cavern and traverses an ancient forest rising from subterranean lake.

Three former Firekeepers reside here with their caretaker, offering guidance to the Undead
who pass through on their quest to break the curse.
The forest serves as a proving ground for visitors and hides a great many secrets for those willing to seek them out,
but beware - while the main road is relatively safe, straying from the beaten path can lead to a terrifying end before your journey has even begun…





  • Fire Keepers' Dwelling
    Behind the back door of the house.

General Notes

  • There is a coffin behind the two Ogres on the small beach. Using it will change the sex of the player. Using it again will revert the effect. In the Scholar of the First Sin, a Pursuer will spawn here.
  • It is possible to obtain extra Human Effigies by killing Strowen or Housekeeper Milibeth. Note that turning hostile against any of the NPCs in the hut will deem Housekeeper Milibeth hostile and the rest uncooperative. The player can still kill the NPCs and speak to their spirits by sacrificing souls to their tombstones outside the front of the hut. This is necessary should the player wish to use a Soul Vessel to reallocate their levels with Strowen. Strowen costs 15,000 souls and the rest are 1,000 souls.
  • Igniting every sconce will spawn an invader who drops a Petrified Something when killed (SOTFS only).
  • After defeating the Ogres, you can get a Handmaid's Ladle from Housekeeper Milbeth.
