Edge of Darkness: Jealous Atrium

The Rozin Sanctuary is a hidden place where the Priestesses of Darkness use ancient powers to keep the corruption of the Goddess Altea from further damaging the world. In recent days however, the seals that they use to keep the Goddess’ nightmares from seeping into the world have begun to weaken, letting untold horrors creep into reality. Now the Priestesses have put out a call for mighty adventurers to assist them in keeping the door between reality and nightmare closed. 

Accessing Rozin Sanctuary

• Players must be level 15 to access the Rozin Sanctuary.
• Players can reach the Rozin Sanctuary by selecting the [Edge of Darkness] tab on the channel list, then the [Rozin Sanctuary] channel.
