War rewards only resignation.
~ The Academic

The Tangle is a region in Darkest Dungeon II.

The Tangle is a primeval forest filled with ruined trenches, barricades, and military encampments. The soldiers of the Lost Battalion, once sent here to hold the line against the cult, found themselves gradually transfixed by thick vines and creeping roots around them. By the time the cult arrived, the fortifications, already long overgrown, were completely unmanned.

Cadavers[ | ]

The primary enemies encountered in the Tangle are Cadavers.

Still dressed for war, these lost souls shamble through the endless maze of trees and vines.

The Dreaming General[ | ]

Lair General
The Dreaming General is the main boss in the Tangle, found in the General's Keep.

Undying Formation[ | ]
