The Golden Tower
The Golden Tower was built nearly two thousand years ago by the great wizard Zhendred, who served as counsel to the great kings of old. He built the tower as a place where he could live and experiment in peace when he wasn’t in service to the kingdom. The tower was famous for its magical focus. Even the land around it became enchanted, growing into magnificent gardens. Many ages after Zhendred’s fall, the tower became the home of the archmage Parae, who was also in the service of the Thaladrin kings during his time.
During the Maulfang War, the Golden Tower became the meeting place (and hiding place) for the Gods. The magical protections surrounding the tower made it the safest place in all of Eilora.
After Yllandra’s betrayal near the end of the war, Parae used his incredible magic to lift the Golden Tower off of the peak and ascend with it into the clouds, leaving behind the devastated Blind Summit. There it remains, floating high above Eilora, moving silently through the skies.
No one who has attempted to reach the tower, whether by means of magic or flying beast, has ever succeeded.
