Description

Level 305 is a constantly dark forest that lacks a day and night cycle. The majority of the Level is covered in a dark, waist-high fog that cannot be seen through, with the only visible structures being crudely made shacks. These wooden cabins can be found in varying conditions that can be used as a temporary shelter. According to first-hand accounts with the wooden cabins by wanderers, the cabins are completely empty with no signs of any previous furniture or appliances that could have previously resided in the structure. It is highly recommended for wanderers to bring a light source due to the darkness of the Level.

The temperatures within Level 305 can range from five degrees Celsius to negative twelve degrees Celsius1. Attempts to take photos while within Level 305 have been deemed impossible due to an undetermined substance similar to black ice covering the camera. The substance cannot be removed while within the Level.

The Entities found within Level 305 consist of Smilers and Skin-Stealers. Entities native to Level 305 have been seen using enhanced hunting techniques. They have commonly been seen using the darkness and dark fog similarly to tall grass to ambush wanderers exploring the forest or passing by.

Trees within Level 305 appear dead and decayed with dark vines hanging off the branches. Should any wanderer attempt to approach a tree, the tree will nearly instantly begin to vibrate for approximately 10 seconds, as if it is a warning. Following this, the tree will violently shake as a last warning to back away. If the wanderer doesn't back away, the tree's bark will crack and shatter, revealing ash inside the trunk. The tree will then proceed to explode into shards of bark as a last attempt to harm the wanderer.

After walking approximately 100 meters in any direction after entering the Level wanderers have reported being able to hear a water current. After walking 10 more meters, one will come across a river of an unknown substance that reflects the sounds of flowing water and also flows as if it is water. A wooden bridge, appearing to have been constructed in the 1800s, crosses the river, which is unstable and dangerous to cross. A wanderer who made it to the river has given their first-hand account saying "It flowed so well… I wanted to drink it, I was so thirsty… But it looked so weird. I knew I couldn't trust it." The entire area around the bridge and river is clear of fog. Should anyone fall into the river, they will float on the surface of the river, but won't move with the flow of the river. Their movements will be restricted, and wanderers report that after four minutes, they noticed they began to lose their color. Eventually, the wanderer will dissolve into the substance and become part of the river.

A testimony of a wanderer who claimed to have consumed the substance was found written in a field journal found near the river, next to a puddle of the substance. The wanderer describes the taste as 'bland and dull, but still horrid.' They state that 10 seconds after consuming the substance, they felt a burning sensation in their throat that prevented them from speaking, followed by a sharp stomach pain twenty seconds later. They also describe that, 5 minutes following consumption, they felt as if their body was shattering. The current location of the wanderer, if they are still alive, is unknown.

The river does not seem to exhaust its supply of the substance. It is not known how the substance is created, though many hypotheses regarding this have been produced. One insists that it is being supplied by some kind of Entity or Entities. Another theory speculates that it is coming from an undiscovered Level that produces it as some kind of dark energy fuel for other Levels, as if the unknown Level is trying to spread its “corruption”.

Discovery

Level 305 was discovered on 6/6/22 by Carter Marsh, Daniel Mack, and Samantha Marsh when they had no-clipped into a dead tree located on Level 9 leading to them entering Level 305. On 6/7/22 Carter Marsh escaped by no-clipping through what he called an "ash tree" and reported the encounter to The M.E.G. though refused to an interview3. Currently, it is assumed that Samantha and Daniel are dead, as no reports of their whereabouts have come up.

Due to the dangers present within Level 305 it is not advised to attempt establishing a base
