Nightfall Sanctuary

Feel the wrath of the Naryu!

The Nightfall Sanctuary, a towering edifice built by the tyrannical Celestial Emperor Naksha Kura, loomed over the land. As his dominion grew, so did his paranoia. Fearing treachery, he sacrificed his people to the Dark Realm in exchange for the Kuranos Cube, an artifact that granted him unparalleled power but consumed his soul. With the cube's essence, he crafted an army of clockwork sentinels, fueled by darkness and loyal only to him.

After the Emperor's demise, the sanctuary fell into suspended animation, its clockwork guardians frozen in anticipation of a new master. The Talus Empire entrusted with safeguarding the cube, but decades later, a bitter feud between the Blackram Leader Chol Mugo and the Stratus Empress Tayhu threatened the delicate balance of peace. Consumed by wrath, Chol Mugo sought the ancient power within the sanctuary. With his forces, he infiltrated the Talus, breached Zaiwei's innermost archives, and stole the Kuranos Cube.

Empowered by the cube, Chol Mugo embarked on his journey into the Emperor's Tomb. Concentrating its essence, he shattered the tomb's eons-long reign of darkness, causing radiant beams to pierce the labyrinthine recesses and a colossal radiance to erupt from the apex of the Nightfall Sanctuary. The clockwork guardians, roused from their eternal slumber, sprung back to life, their luminescent eyes ablaze with fervent brilliance, ready to protect their newfound master.
