Zachaeld Tower is a mysterious tower of jade that is some 3000 feet in height. There are no doors at ground level, and the lowest windows are 500 feet up.

Details

  • It is a four sided tower of square design with no sign of being worn or damaged.
  • Each floor is fifteen feet high. The windows stretch floor to ceiling - they are more like large openings in the wall. The windows and the walls alternate - 5 ft window between 5ft of wall. Windows are aligned vertically at each level.
  • Everything inside the tower is jade, but without scratches or any damage - everything is smooth jade. No dirt, no debris. The tower stretches several hundred feet above the clouds, but clouds do not enter inside, stopping right at the windows.
  • There are 125 floors in total within the tower.
  • The ceiling of the tower is pyramidal, and blank, with no script on it.
  • The tower is 150 feet by 150 feet, with a 15 foot ledge running around the walls and a central square pillar (30x30). The tower is nearly symmetrical, the only non-symmetric feature being the supernal script that is inscribed all over the walls.
  • Each character of the golden script is a foot in height. The characters are embossed in gold and catch the faint light and glow.
  • On top of the pillar, there is a statue of four vaguely humanoid figures facing each other, hands outstretched and holding an emerald globe.
  • The globe is gently held by the four figures, with very few points of contact.
  • Four 5-foot wide bridges link to this statue.
  • The script inscribed within the tower is Supernal and is a record of the past, present, and future.

Exploring the Tower

  • The magic inside the tower is so strong that Keri fainted when she tried to sense the magic within the tower.
  • Removing the globe triggered a magical trap - there was a strong explosion, followed by a sucking force that pulled Skamos and Borys, who were outside and several levels down, back into the top of the tower.
