The Chronicles of Hallowdwell
The Ebon Tower
A fabled, mythic tower said to have existed during the height of the Centralian Empire, somewhere in the southern reaches of the continent, in what would now be Arkfar. Who constructed the Ebon Tower has been lost to history, as well as for what purpose it was built. Descriptions of the tower are sparse, and historians even disagree whether the tower itself was black and thus named the Ebon Tower, or whether it acquired that name based upon its usage.
The Ebon Tower is said to have any number of wonderous and terrible powers, depending on the source myth. Some say that the Tower does nothing less than grant the deepest-seated wishes of one cunning and powerful enough to ascend the tower. Others say that the Tower was a mighty defensive fortress, bristling with arcane defenses that would repel even the largest armies. Still others state that the tower serves as a focal point for mystic energy, capable of magnifying the power and range of spells to god-like levels.
