- See also: Auburn Thicket
The Auburn Thicket is the second stratum of the Yggdrasil Labyrinth. The stratum introduces the player to damage tiles which present the player with shortcuts through the floor - should their party be willing to weather the ensuing damage. Various FOEs can also potentially interact with these damage tiles for better or worse. On 8F the party has to dodge around the Salamander to retrieve the Flame Plume, and afterwards they square off with the Flame Demon that blocks the way up.
Past the locked door on 10F is a source for unusual geothermal activity, and the residence of the Great Dragon...
