Dbd-journal-survivors Quotes left I am not alone. If you set aside the killers. I have found others. Survivors that are just like me. Or at least I believe so, I want to believe so. Sometimes I manage to just catch a glimpse of a poor soul as he gets carried away. Others I have actually told my name. I do not always want to know their names. It makes it harder as they hang from the hook. I help them...sometimes. Just as they help me. Fear is our common denominator. And we bond. We have nobody else. Human contact and interaction sooths this trial we share. I ask myself whether I am better off alone, or if we can come farther together. Sometimes I bare shame as I sneak away from screams. But I have equally often been on the other side, hanging two feet off the ground, whereas I see someone, watching from shrubbery. Like a witness. Maybe it is important to watch, and remind oneself that pain is not the only thing that burdens our lives at this point? But also our souls. Do we deserve to live if we were to escape? Quotes right

The Survivors' task is to try and escape from the RealmsIconHelp proceduralIconHelp proceduralIconHelp procedural of The EntityIconHelp entityIconHelp entityIconHelp entity in which they are trapped.
In order to do so, Survivors must complete the following tasks:

  • Repair 5 GeneratorsIconHelpLoading generatorsIconHelpLoading generatorsIconHelpLoading generators to power the Exit GatesIconHelp exitGatesIconHelp exitGatesIconHelp exitGates.
  • Open at least one Exit Gate and leave the Trial Grounds or escape through the HatchIconHelp hatchIconHelp hatchIconHelp hatch.

Meanwhile, the KillerIconHelpLoading killerIconHelpLoading killerIconHelpLoading killer will be trying to locate, catch and hook Survivors in order to sacrifice them to The EntityIconHelp entityIconHelp entityIconHelp entity.

Despite Survivors being vulnerable to the Killer, they have a useful set of core abilities to hide and escape from the Killer.


Modus Operandi

According to The ObserverIconHelp archivesGeneralIconHelp archivesGeneralIconHelp archivesGeneral in Arcus 07, the Survivors are snatched from the many worlds The Entity travels and are forced to suffer endless agonies, which nourish The Entity with an indescribable psychic sustenance.

While some Survivors embrace the endless Trials as they search for a way to escape, others do not realise that they are caught in an endless cycle of torment and live the horror anew each time they are resurrected after having been sacrificed.

Those Survivors repair Generators, power the Gates and run for their lives only to do it all over again, and again, and again.

If Survivors lose their ability to feel anything, they are discarded into The Void as empty shells.
Currently Vigo and The Observer are the only known Survivors that have managed to find a way out from the Void and to bend The Fog's irrefragable rules to their will.
