The Citadel of Dusk, sometimes called Citadel of Sunset[1b][1c][2b][2c][4b], is one of the High Elf Outposts in the Anurell Peninsula located in the southern tip of Lustria [1a][2a][3][4a],

Its location is a site of tremendous strategic importance. It was established in 1218 IC by order of Morvael the Impetuous in the 97th year of his reign[1c][2c][4b].

The citadel is reportedly an impossibly tall and needle-thin structure whose foundations in fact pre-date High Elf civilisation [6]. Its main feature is its large seaport, which harbours a large High Elf fleet[6].

It's unclear if the Citadel of Dusk is a full-fledged colony or a major military outpost. In either case it enables the High Elf navy to patrol, protect and ultimately control the western sea trade routes to Cathay and Nippon[6][1b][2b] and to suppress any raids of the Dark Elf Corsairs in this region.

An unexpected Lizardmen army aided the local High Elf garrison in repelling a major Dark Elf raid in 2349 IC[5].
