Valdorian Age - Rising Power on the Frontier
The Sinking Tower
Dead center in The Canals is the Sinking Tower, former home of the sorcerer Largisse Foom. Fifteen stories tall, it’s the tallest building in Elweir. Stories say it was once twice as tall, but over the centuries it’s sunk into the ground much faster than the rest of The Canals. Most storytellers say demons dragged Largisse Foom down to the Nether Realms and now that he’s conquered a portion of the hells, he’s bringing his home down to him.
Whatever the case, the Sinking Tower has stood empty since Largisse Foom departure from Elweir – as a freehold, it’s not the Prince’s to give away and few people would willingly live in Largisse Foom‘s former home anyway. Many stories tell of thieves who tried to break into the tower and steal whatever they found there. All of them came to bad end, usually at the hands of demons or restless spirits that guard the tower against trespassers. A circular canal called Foom’s Way surrounds the place.
