Azure Agony is the seventh and last level of The Elder World. True to its name, the entire level is made of azure brick or stone walls in the Wizard level theme, as well as several platforms of silvery metal, which blends in with the overall color scheme. The only break in this azure theme is a hall of red brick. The level features numerous pools of clear blue Water, which add further to the azure atmosphere. One of these pools is decorated with unique glowing orbs, which do not appear anywhere else in the game.

The player must search for the Silver Key in order to proceed. The player must also search and collect the final Rune in a maze of corridors before confronting Shub-Niggurath.

Episode Completion

Despite the awful might of the Elder World, you have achieved the Rune of Elder Magic, capstone of all types of arcane wisdom. Beyond good and evil, beyond life and death, the Rune pulsates, heavy with import. Patient and potent, the Elder Being Shub-Niggurath weaves her dire plans to clear off all life from the Earth, and bring her own foul offspring to our world! For all the dwellers in these nightmare dimensions are her descendants! Once all Runes of magic power are united, the energy behind them will blast open the Gateway to Shub-Niggurath, and you can travel there to foil the Hell-Mother's plots in person.

—Fourth Rune Collected


Now, you have all four Runes. You sense tremendous invisible forces moving to unseal ancient barriers. Shub-Niggurath had hoped to use the Runes herself to clear off the Earth, but now instead, you will use them to enter her home and confront her as an avatar of avenging Earth-life. If you defeat her, you will be remembered forever as the savior of the planet. If she conquers, it will be as if you had never been born.
