Slaughter by the River of Souls is the second level of Turok 2: Seeds of Evil. It takes place in the city of Araissi, one of the most prosperous cities in the Lost Land.

History Edit

The city was erected near one of the Energy Totems on the shores of the River of Souls. Long before the city and the Energy Totems were built, the River of Souls was infested with poisonous waters that killed anything that drank from it. When the Primagen's Lightship crashed and the Energy Totems were built, the people from the Lost Land learned that using the Energy from the Totems could purify the water of the River of Souls. After the Totems were erected, Araissi and other nearby cities were built for the people living near the River of Souls.

Level DescriptionEdit

"This was once the thriving civilization of Araissi. The architecture in this once proud city is reminiscent of Roman architecture, though it is not without its own unique flair. The buildings are of a light sandy/white color, with trim of blue, gold, and green. Important structures are decorated with elaborate carvings and ornamental tile. The roads are of brick, with fountains and statues decorating crossroads and the like. A system of canals runs throughout the entire city. Also lined with brick and tile, these canals are perhaps the proudest achievement of a civilization now all but extinct. Though once a place of great beauty and gentle disposition, the tranquility of this place has been shattered by war. Everywhere the player looks, the signs of carnage are evident. Buildings have been devastated by explosions and gunfire. Fires smolder and burn throughout the streets. Bloody handprints and drag marks tell the story of a terrible massacre, and here and there a body may be seen lying where it fell. The colorful tiled floors of the Great Halls have been shattered and are smeared with the blood of the dead. This was a slaughter."

Transcript Edit

"Slaughter by the River of Souls. The River of Souls. The very name strikes fear into the hearts of men. Nothing that drinks of this water survives.

The Lazarus Concordance erected one of the Energy Totems on its banks, and the people of the Lost Land quickly learned that its mysterious energy could purify the water of the River of Souls. On the very shores of the deadly river, a mighty city sprang forth. Where once there was but death, life flourished.

The Dinosoid vanguard has swept through the beautiful city of Araissi as its campaign of terror rages on. Araissi was once home to a formidable army, but decades of peace and prosperity saw little need for a large military presence, and its military forces grew weak.

Your mission objectives are as follows: Destroy two Soul Gates. Legions of the undead have begun pouring through these gates into Araissi. You must find and destroy all of the Soul Gates before the undead can escape into the city. Destroy the three Sisters of Despair. Locate the Energy Totem and defend it at all costs."
