The Road of the Abyss was a version of the Road of Bones, constructed by Abyss mystics of Clan Lasombra. As they are immersed in the undying study of a force transcending and ultimately opposing all light and life. Humanity and concepts like right or wrong have little use to those who study the mysteries of the outer darkness.

Some of the scholars among the followers of the road draw similarities between the Abyss and the Well of Bones known to the Cappadocians. In the Modern Nights, most Abyss mystics study the Path of the Allied Night.
