Trivia[]

  • The Book of Revelation (note the lack of an "s") is the final book of The Bible. It depicts the apocalypse through a vision shown to John of Patmos and includes the Four Horsemen and themes of Hell, Satan, and The Lamb. This explains why using it causes the next boss to be a Harbinger, as well as why it increases the chances of a Devil Room Devil Room / Angel Room Angel Room to appear.
