Area Jondo.png

A great bell crafted by the forger Lindquist; his magnum opus that he never saw to completion. It was erected upside down so that its ringing could shake the earth and reach distant lands, becoming a massive valley of bronze. The bell does not ring, and instead, a great triune moan emanates from its depths, echoing up its spiraled sides.

Jondo is located below Mountains of the Endless Dusk and above Grievance Ascends. It is dark and gray, with many ladders, lifts, and climbable walls. Bells hanging from chains produce shockwaves that can damage the Penitent One and be used to break objects.

At the beginning of the area, three male statues are gesturing towards a bell that will ring when hit, and the great bell in the background will move. The bell can be broken if the Penitent One destroys the two statues of two males holding onto chains that support the bell found in the area. Afterwards, if the bell at the three statues is rung, the huge bell will fall, the platform will collapse, and the Penitent One will fall down into Grievance Ascends, where the moan that fills Jondo originates.

Redento, a pilgrim who wishes to cross the valley, is encountered at Jondo's entrance. Once the moving platform that can be ridden across the valley is activated, Redento will cross and give the Fourth Toe Made of Limestone.

There is a Sanguine Fountain near the bottom left of the area.

There is no boss in this area.

Trivia[]

  • According to the description of Vertebra of Lindquist, the Forger, the bells of Cvstodia are the creations of Lindquist, whose magnum opus was Jondo, but he never saw it to its completion.
  • According to the dialogue of Redento, Jondo is a bell that was erected upside down so that it would shake the earth and be heard over great distances.
  • In Christianity, bells have special significance, and are used to call people together for prayer and to mark days of importance such as weddings and funerals. Within many types of symbolism, especially the Spanish Catholic imagery utilized in Blasphemous, inverting an object inverts its meaning.
  • In Christian symbolism, valleys are often referred to in the context of dark and unholy places, often serving as locations of conflict and separation, and used as metaphors for desolation and ignorance.
