"Grinding through hell to reach salvation."
The maze is salvation. The maze is hell.
The "hell" part is obvious for the town of Etria. Having a massive labyrinth loaded with all manner of hostile creatures situated right outside the city limits can't be ideal. But enterprising people rule the town and have turned the deadly nature of the surroundings into a tourist attraction. Explorers, would-be heroes and others come from afar to try their skills at mapping out the maze and clearing out the monsters that make it so hellish. Items dropped by fallen foes or snagged from collection points are sold to the local store and converted into weapons and items. People looking for a special possession, but unwilling to put their lives on the line to acquire it, can submit requests for more courageous souls to undertake. No, for Etria, the maze might be salvation -- at least for its economy.
