Though the Nobility had never come to master time, they did come to master space, and had used that knowledge in a number of fields. They were able to transport materials by teleportation, or to put an entire lake or valley into a tiny box. This knowledge gave rise to game technology that could spawn limitless amounts of foes. One of the devices placed in the sealed sanctum in the depths of the Talos Arsenal utilized this. It was put there to satisfy the sanctum's prisoner's lust for combat when it woke up. It's a game of sorts that can spawn limitless amounts of foes. Troops and arms are prepared in a space, and thousands or even tens of thousands of these areas are stacked on top of the other, until even the most enthusiastic combatant will be satisfied----or at least go on fighting for all time.
