The Chasm used to be one of Liyue's primary sources of ores, but mysterious circumstances have caused it to close down.
The pathways of the Chasm's underground mines are intricate and complex, and are treacherous to navigate thanks to recent developments. The mines are not only rich in minerals, but the special environmental conditions have given rise to unique fluorescent plants.
The novel called the Records of Jueyun Vol. 6: Hidden Jade is about the Dunyu Ruins, but it talks in part about the origin of the Chasm. You can buy the book at Wanwen Bookhouse in Liyue Harbor!
According to the book, thousands of years before the Archon War, when even Rex Lapis was still a young god, a star fell from the sky and transformed barren plains into a huge and deep chasm full of beautiful jade.
A fragment of this star would also land north of Lisha and the area would eventually become the Dunyu Ruins.
Ores from the giant celestial body turned the region to be rich in precious raw materials like ''Glazed Sand Crystals.'' This precious raw material is often used in making Liyue's porcelain.
Because of special, geological conditions, the soil and vegetation in this area have a distinctive color.
In the valley northwest of Liyue Harbor and south of Nantianmen lie many silent, ancient ruins.
One of these areas is known as the Dunyu Ruins. This area is said to have already existed even before the time of the Archon Wars.
According to old legends passed by word of mouth,Dunyumeansthe land to which beauteous jade flees.
In a past beyond memory, when even Rex Lapis would still have been young, a star fell from the sky into the barren plains west of Liyue. These plains were transformed into a huge and deep chasm in the wake of that star's descent, and jade would emerge from within, beautiful and limitless, and it would become the foundation for a thousand years of industrial mining in Liyue thereafter. Legend has it that when that nameless star fell, a fragment of it broke off and crashed into the rocks in northern Lisha.
As most know, wordless stones harbored soul and spirit, and in manners and times not witnessed by mortal eyes they watched and listened to the ley lines' pulses, the echoes of the alpine springs, and the slow but inexorable movements of the mountains.
But unlike the ordinary but enduring stone of the earth, the fragments of the meteorite that fell from heaven had a proud and agitated temper.
Later, when countless gods and rulers fought over the appointed celestial seats, and the very stars and abyss themselves faded, tragedy and evil embarred the breath of the waters and mountains. The fallen star could bear this no longer, and heedless of the great chasm's persuasions to stay it leaped away, away towards the heavens.nl]
As it returned to the skies, the heavenly jade left behind a deep pit, within which humans would build great cities and mighty fortresses, finding refuge and shutting themselves in with the leftover inheritance of that fallen star.
Over the tumult and storms of the next few thousand years, the redoubts of the Dunyu Valley stood tall and maintained prosperous relations with Liyue Harbor up till 500 years ago. But with the coming of the black calamity and the rise of the Abyss, the residents of Dunyu sealed the ancient city and departed for other lands. None know why these refugees chose to shut the gates of their home, and even the millennia-old adepti and yaksha are silent on this matter.
And so, the sealed fortresses became giant, silent tombs, with naught left in them but the sound of pond water and the wind whistling through empty halls and thusly, too, did they come to be called theDunyu Ruinsby the people of Liyue.
In the 2.5 Livestream, it was revealed that Azhdaha and Rex Lapis fought in the Chasm before Azhdaha was sealed away. The story between Azhdaha and Rex Lapis was told in Zhongli's second Story Quest, No Mere Stone.
The Archive description of the Tenacity of the Milellith Artifact set details a different battle that occured in the Chasm. The battle happened between the Abyss, and the combined forces of the Millelith and the nameless yaksha, who defended the Chasm under Rex Lapis' orders.
|Flower of Accolades||
Flower of Accolades
In an age when solemn songs were sung from the clifftops, a meteorite once fell into the Chasm.
Out of the depths of the boundless night sky above, the iron meteorite plummeted to the ground, turning the earth to powdered glaze on impact.
Though human life is fleeting, Rex Lapis personally ordered the Millelith to rush to the defense of the mines.
As the Abyss flooded forth, the Millelith escorted countless civilians to safety.
Miners tell tales of a small number of troops from the rearguard, who remained in the Chasm.
Together with the nameless yaksha, they fought courageously until they, too, made the ultimate sacrifice among the jagged rocks.
In time, the names of both mortals and adepti alike were forgotten. In time, even the mountains and rivers change form.
Yet there will never come a time when their honorable deeds shall be forgotten. Like this gold-leafed flower, they will shine on forever.
500 years on, the harbor city remains as steadfastly peaceful today as the day the disaster was quelled.
And still, the troops wear this golden flower with pride, in honor of the sacrifice made by their forebears.
As a mark of military service, the Millelith use the feathers of high-altitude birds of prey to adorn their uniforms.
These tail feathers are only worn on ceremonial occasions. They boost the morale of the citizenry and fill visiting outlanders with a sense of awe.
It is said that in its inception, this ceremonial custom was inspired by the nameless yaksha.
In the heat of battle, when the yaksha was engaged in fierce combat with the Abyss, some of its plumage was stripped away. The feathers that fell to the ground were seen as a symbol of hope.
In the end, the brave yaksha and fearless citizenry would sink into an exhausted slumber in the dark lair of the enemy. Rex Lapis was moved by their sacrifice and observed a prolonged vow of silence among the low murmuring of the mountain stone.
The people claim that the nameless yaksha that defended The Chasm was not, in fact, under the command of Rex Lapis. Instead, they believe that it was an act of redemption from a longstanding sin... a price paid for cowardice and dereliction of duty.
Whatever the truth of the matter, the yaksha that had once soared through celestial heights had now returned to a free existence amongst the clouds.
As for the soldiers, trapped in eternal slumber in the depths of The Chasm... their legend continues to evolve with the flow of time.
A hardy timepiece powered by sunlight and moonlight, capable of capturing rays of light even on the darkest of days.
When Liyue was threatened by a pitch-black malice, this time-dial helped the soldiers to remember the warmth of the sun.
In the course of fighting side-by-side with the yaksha, these mortal soldiers could not escape being contaminated by karma, or harmed during the slaughtering.
To avoid being consumed by the darkness of constant killing, the Millelith soldiers used this timepiece to silently mark the passage of time during each battle.
They fixed a unified marching pace and schedule so that one squadron of mortal soldiers would take the battlefield as the one before them retreated.
This cycle of advance and retreat continued all the way to the depths of the Chasm, where yaksha and valiant soldiers both fell.
100 years later, this timepiece was unearthed by a miner. Its bronze surface sparkled in the bright starlight.
Urban legends tell of a collector of curios wearing black robes, who roamed the market streets one day, buying up Orichalceous Time-Dials and paying a generous sum for each one.
Some sellers queried him, curious to know what his reasons were, but he deftly deflected all their questions with an array of excuses and other verbal tricks.
As for what this individual's true motive was, perhaps only the unyielding forward march of time can finally deliver a issatisfying explanation.
|Noble's Pledging Vessel||
Noble's Pledging Vessel
When the Millelith was first founded, Liyue was still a savage and dangerous place.
The elders of towns, villages, and tribes would pledge oaths of allegiance with a golden cup.
As a show of loyalty to Rex Lapis and duty to their countrymen,
They selected valiant soldiers from all regions. These soldiers became known as the Millelith.
They would go on to take up arms with a yaksha in battle, fighting from the rearguard. They too drank from that golden cup.
It was a final toast to the benevolent and majestic Lord of Geo. With their gaze fixed ahead of them, they stormed into the abyss.
Hundreds of years later, a conceited adventurer retrieved the cup from the depths of The Chasm and washed away the imperfections.
Miraculously, the cup remained whole and untarnished by the passage of time. The pitch-dark of that subterranean realm had failed to remove its radiance.
Yet more centuries passed. Eventually, the people of Liyue tri would tell tales of an era of catastrophe and a nameless yaksha,
Tales of how heroes from disparate heritages and different lands united under a single banner against the Abyss... Inevitably, the tale would touch upon the cup, and how the blood of those that went before remained clear and spotless as the day it was spilled.
|General's Ancient Helm||
General's Ancient Helm
The commander who fought together with the nameless yaksha fell in the line of duty,
As did the handful of his compatriots who fought alongside him.
To ensure that the afflicted civilians could safely escape, and to maintain their honor in the eyes of the Lord of Geo, The helmet-clad troops of the front line took the lead, pointing their spears towards the Abyss and charging into battle.
Disaster arrived in the land of glaze, and a horde of ancient foes came surging forth.
At the order of Rex Lapis, the yaksha fought a bloody battle against the warped creations of the Abyss.
The fight went on until the last drop of blood had soaked into the battlefield and all that was impure had been cleansed.
As the tide of the Abyss receded, the glaze sands shone gloriously once more,
But when the gloom that had filled the skies above The Chasm had finally dissipated, the yaksha disappeared without a trace.
As for the general and his men who left their helmets on the battlefield, they rest there in peace forevermore.
|Ministry of Civil Affairs Noticeboard|
The Ministry of Civil Affairs in Liyue put up an announcement at the Noticeboard in front of their establishment announcing that the Chasm mines had been closed due to an accident.
They offered temporary unemployment, medical, and food stipends to the affected workers. Shops affected by the closue of the mines were also given tax exemptions and deductions.
|Shizhuang the Strong NPC Location|
Shizhuang the Strong
South of Lingju Pass Location
Talking to Shizhuang the Strong near the south of Lingju Pass will reveal that the Qixing sealed the mines after Shizhuang's team had dug up ''something very strange.'' Shizhuang said that everyone who had seen the ''very strange'' thing had fallen into a coma, and he had not seen the thing himself.
You can find the NPC Qian walking around near the southern Teleport Waypoint in Liyue Harbor. He is one of the miners who lost their jobs after the Chasm was closed off.
|Esther About the Chasm|
Esther, a researcher in Dragonspine, mentioned that the Chasm's weather conditions differs from the rest of Liyue, like the conditions of Dragonspine and Mondstadt. According to this, it's highly likely that the Chasm will have some unique environmental properties as well!
Esther can be found near the Teleport Waypoint north of Wyrmrest Valley.
