The Edge of the Abyss is the 1st layer of the Abyss. Its composition is fairly tame compared to the deeper, more alien levels. The 1st layer is the only part of the Abyss that could be considered, in some form, "safe".
The 1st layer is the most shallow section of the Abyss, right below the town of Orth. A gondola system, which is part of the Grand Pier, was built at approximately 50 meters below the surface to quicken the descent into the Abyss, which goes down 580 meters to what Riko presumed to be the Stone Ark, a rocky protrusion at approximately 600 meters.
The environment does not really change, and wildlife consists of mostly harmless animals; though occasionally predators from the 2nd or 3rd layers might ascend in search of food. There are not many treasures nor Relics either, but there is a considerable number of Praying Skeletons.
