The day after you return from the Kitty Mansion there is a bunch of rumors floating around. A tower, approximately 300 feet tall, give or take a hill giant, has appeared in the middle of Caenmore. There was no construction of it; it just appeared one morning, giving Mr. Coddywobble, the local barber, a heart attack as he passed by during the event. (services are at 10am at the temple of Ilmater) It appears to be made from solid stone, dark with silver marbling running throughout the cylinder. There are no visible entrances or exits, and windows only exist after the first 100 feet. A clearing of 20 feet surround it in all directions.
Every 30 or so feet, there are gargoyles that circle the tower, menacing and creepy. These rings rotate, every other level rotates the same direction, but no ring rotates the same speed. You can’t tell from the street, but you swear the gargoyles look alive. Ocassionally a telescoping tube extends out from a side and swivels around to get a peek of the town. A “peek” because at the end of the tube is a large eye, about 4 feet in diameter.
You aren’t sure, but you swear there used to be buildings where the tower stands now.
Word on the street is, an archmage named Koroboros is said to be the owner and new resident (literally, someone wrote that Koroboros is this way, with an arrow, and some choice words about his heritage on the cobblestones in front of the tower’s base in few languages, infernal, common, and pictograms).
You can occasionally hear some noises from it, but you really have nothing to compare them to. Some sort of electrical buzzes, some animal screeches, and the occasional, “How now, brown cow?”
No one has gone up to the tower yet. The intesection on which it appeard, is almost completely devoid of foot traffic. In the few hours it has been part of Caenmore, a new record on declining real-estate value has already been set for the surrounding blocks.
