BlackWater Canyon is an incredibly vast gulch that serves as an Ossuary for the remains of the deceased on Dinosaur Planet. The solemn area has deep spiritual significance to the ShadowHunter Tribe, who serve as its protectors.

Krystal can arrive at this location through the hidden entrance in Lightfoot Village, where she'll need to navigate through the lengthy channels of the Canyon in order to find the Tree of Souls; a conduit for the spiritual energies of the fallen dinosaurs to return to the planet. 


Appropriately, BlackWater Canyon is one of the most barren areas of Dinosaur Planet, though this is due to fluctuations of development rather than the grave setting. 

While the entirety of the Canyon can be explored, all associated programming with the area is completely absent, meaning that interactions with the ShadowHunter Tribe, the intended boss fight, and any narrative elements to be imparted within BlackWater Canyon simply do not exist at this time. 

Important Intended Items & Intended NPCs


Lightfoot Guide: Envisioned to guide Krystal through BlackWater Canyon as an emissary. 
Shadowhunter Leader: Envisioned to give Krystal the SpellStone, as the areas intended SpellStone Guardian. 
Shadowhunter Thief: Envisioned to steal the SpellStone, prompting a chase throughout the Canyon to the boss.

Key Items:

BlackWater Canyon SpellStone: Needed to return to Desert Force Point Temple for progress in Krystal's Adventure.

Intended Enemies

BlackWater Canyon 'Monster': Envisioned as a huge skeletal foe that would have captured the Shadowhunter Thief.

Notable Bugs/Crashes



BlackWater Canyon serves as one of the most incomplete areas in Dinosaur Planet, any restorative efforts for this portion of the game will be entirely community driven.
