Within the world of Celestica, located on a lone island which resides in the center of the Dark Ocean - the Crystal Catacombs stand. An ancient, titanic structure that contains a massive dark power and vast untold secrets.
Many speculations have been made as to exactly how the Crystal Catacombs were created but the truth remains a mystery. Some say they were constructed by a powerful wizard to be used as a temple to summon armies of dark creatures to be used for his own evil deeds. Another theory claims that it was built by the gods themselves to act as a conduit to connect the world of Celestica with their own.
The Catacombs consist of multiple, descending chambers that extend miles below the surface of the island. Each chamber of the Catacombs contains a large portal which leads to another world, known as a Crystal Realm. These worlds are said to be interconnected, and powered by the Crystal Catacombs itself. Acting like a central hub, the Catacombs create a dark energy that gives each realm the ability to be in a constant state of living ‘evolution’. Meaning that each Crystal Realm is essentially, always forming and re-forming, almost like a wave upon the ocean tide. Because of this, it is nearly impossible to create an accurate representation of any given Realms layout.
Each Crystal Realms is said to be inhabited by a variety of nightmarish creatures which act as fierce guardians of their magical homes. Bonded to their Realm in almost a symbiotic relationship, each species plays its part inside the strange world. It’s even fabled that within these Realms live vastly powerful creatures that act as top-tier protectors of mystical Artifacts that grant the holder amazing powers.
Even with all the speculations and theories about the Catacombs… Few have ventured into the abyss and none have yet to return to give their own personal accounts. The secrets of the Crystal Catacombs are still thickly shrouded in mystery.
