The Nexus

Lore

Amidst the realm of reality and death exists a place known as the Nexus. It is a hidden temple that "binds together the northern land of Boletaria." It is the central hub for the souls whom traverse the ethereal worlds hoping to reclaim their bodies. Below the Nexus sleeps the Old One, offering the promise of limitless prosperity to any that gives themself up to it. The Maiden maintains the Nexus, keeping its candles lit and watching over the souls of the beings trapped within.

While we can only travel to and from the Nexus via the Archstones, it is a physical location within the world of Boletaria. While never explicitly pinned to a location, we know it is in the far North, likely even farther up than the cut off land of giants. King Allant and his brother Rydell found the Nexus temple while travelling, and there Allant discovered the secrets of the Old One. Once he returned, the demons began to filter down into Boletaria, and the scourge began. It is even possible Allant visited the Nexus several times during his slow planning of the event, as we know the Fat Ministers began appearing in his court long before the invasion.

The Nexus itself was created by the Monumentals after the first time the Old One was released thousands of years ago, as a way to cage the beast. There it has stood in solitude, watching over its captive, all along.
