ANNIVERSARY EDITION NAME: Arcane Sanctuary Gallery

    The Arcane Sanctuary Gallery was a sealed chamber behind the High Altar deep underground. Deumion's task as Guardian of the Sanctuary was to prevent anyone access to this chamber as the tome containing the world's most powerful Black Magic spell, Destroy, was found within. The tome was created centuries ago to defend the ancient city of Perseria against its enemies, but its power was too great and Deumion was chosen to protect the spell from falling into the wrong hands and it was locked away in the Arcane Sanctuary.

GAME INFO
    Access to the Arcane Sanctuary Gallery is only granted after defeating Deumion in combat. To initiate the battle, the player must choose the key term Destruction after defeating Phrekyos. Within the Gallery is the Destroy Tome, which teaches the ultimate Black Magic spell, Destroy.

NAME ORIGIN
    Arcane means something that is known or understood by very few, something is secret, obscure, mysterious or esoteric. The word comes from the Latin word arcanus meaning "secret". A sanctuary is a sacred or holy place. The word comes from the Late Latin word santuarium meaning "sacred". A gallery is a raised area, often having a stepped or sloping floor, in a theater, church, or other public building to accommodate spectrators or exhibits. The word comes from the Mid Latin galilea meaning "church porch" and most likely derives from Galilee, the northernmost region of Palestine.
