Quote of the Patch[]

...while Orpheus thoughtlessly looked back, all unbelieving his Eurydice restored to him and following, he lost his singing's recompense; and she had come to the verge of life only to die once more.
~ Hercules Oetaeus (Lucius Annaeus Seneca; F. Justus Miller translation)

Note: You should see v0.22135 in-game once you have the update.
