Goods and travellers used to flow through these ancient roads. They've long fallen to disrepair and become infested with aggressive bugs and husks of former residents.

It is the first full area the Knight explores, and where they will encounter several NPCs.

Infected Crossroads

Area Infected Crossroads

After either acquiring Monarch Wings or killing one of the Dreamers, the Infection will have spread through the Crossroads, with orange pustules of goo appearing in the environment. Navigation becomes more difficult due to the Infection closing off certain paths (Two passages will also have been completely sealed off by the Infection making them inaccessible as labeled on the map). In addition, most of the standard enemies are replaced by new, stronger versions.
