RotRL Wednesday Nights
The sight that proves most striking to visitors of Sandpoint at first is the ruins of the Old Light. It rises from sea level and is built into the face of a 120-foot-tall cliff, with the tower extending another 50 feet above that level to culminate in ragged ruins. The remaining shell is yet another reminder that neither Chelaxians nor the Varisians are the first settlers of this land, yet apart from a few badly weathered carvings signifying that the peak of this tower once held a brilliant light, no insight into the tower’s true purpose remains.
However, Brodert Quink believes that it was not, in fact a lighthouse, a but terrible war machine (built by Runelord Alaznist) whose controls are the standing stones in the Sandpoint Cathedral. He is not widely believed and his ideas about the Cathedral are considered blasphemous to many in town.
This information was corroborated by a nymph, however, and thus appears to be true.
The Old Light was the target of the giant raid led by Teraktinus. Why they wanted information on Alaznist’s tower is not known.
