Spoiler warning!
This article contains plot details about an upcoming episode.

The Messages from Beyond the Grave are a series of bonus audio clips which are findable while playing the Walk. They are usually described as being some sort of audio device, for example audio bracelets, audio signet rings etc. They are all recorded by Burn members or Burn affiliates, and are to be released after their deaths in order to explain why they chose to ally themselves with the Burn and take the actions that they did. Soleil appears on the recordings as well, usually prompting the recorder in their explanations. Some of the Messages are recorded by characters who appear during the Walk, others merely provide additional background on the Burn.
