Purgatory is the area of an intermediate state after physical death in which those destined for heaven "undergo purification, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven". Only those who die in the state of grace but have not yet fulfilled the temporal punishment due to their sin can be in Purgatory, and therefore no one in Purgatory will remain forever in that state or go to hell. This notion has old roots.



The exterior of the purgatory is said to a be crimson building with Satan sculpted onto it, and is burning. In addition, a metallic ingress is said to be the entrance.


The interior of the purgatory is said to be a dark island. The isle is surrounded by lava flows, with some patches of earth growing. The isle is said to be made of wabe. Morel are abundant on the surface.


There was originally a map theme in Venture called "purgatory" which appeared as the "interior" section on this page reads. However, it was removed with the other four map themes and replaced with the generic world theme, and later Winter in addition.


  • It is said that purgatory will return as part of a dimension called Hell. Hell is said to have bits of purgatory scattered around it, and it uses other components like the lava and magmas' abundance.
  • The Purgatory is returning under the name "Hell", and will be used for fast travel. After all, whatever Robert Jordan can do, Robert Jacob can do better!
