The Stilt Village was built over a sanctuary, but it's hard to say whether that was an intentional choice by the original colonists.

The Slumbering Sanctuary is a fourth level biome.

This old sanctuary quietly slumbers, with the glow of the strange, sappy substance surrounding it. This place is quiet and tranquil, and realistic statues made out of fine stone occupy the grounds. There is little activity except a little bit of fog, and a little bit of embers. That is, until you tap it in the wrong place. Nobody likes to be awakened from their slumber, and the sanctuary is no exception. Grumpy when woken up, it shakes alive. The ground grumbles, and the guardians start to call out. The calmness of blue is replaced by the passion of orange. The ground shakes with each step of the golems, and their shadows approach... They certainly are not happy to be woken up. Perhaps they shall put you to bed as punishment.

General information[edit | edit source]

Access and exit[edit | edit source]

The Slumbering Sanctuary can initially only be accessed from the Insufferable Crypt, coming from the Ancient Sewers with the Ram rune. After defeating the Elite Caster and obtaining the Spider rune (see below), a passage from the Black Bridge also becomes available.

There are three exits out of the Slumbering Sanctuary, leading to the Clock Tower and to the Forgotten Sepulcher. Another exit, located behind a 2 BSC door, becomes available after beating the Giant once and leads to the Cavern.

Awakening the Sanctuary[edit | edit source]

You can find and activate the AT (Ancient Temple) Switch, which open all the yellow doors that leads to the outside portion of the level, and also changing sanctuary's color theme to orange. Most statues you encounter will be pure decorative until activating AT switch, which after that will glow yellow then come alive starting to fight you if you get close to them.

Spider rune[edit | edit source]

A Caster elite with the Spider rune can be found here. It disappears after being defeated once.
