This building was also home to 2 Demonic War Forged who had slain countless inhabitants of the city over a century ago. As the heroes struggled against these two ancient diabolical machines a dozen of the city’s former inhabitants arose to defend the heroes.

Wrong Eye has captured the ghost of an ancient city dweller who he hopes to control and gain information on Sanctuary’s location within three days.
