Talanor, the Bright Tower
Artifact - Staff of Stoorjian
Originally built by Stoorjian, the Tower of Necromancy served as his personal residence until his death. He wielded a staff adorned with a claw holding an small, humanoid skull. Set into the skull, was a large ruby said to have been the key to the tower. The staff was infused with such necrotic energy that the wielder could summon and command the undead. Following Stoorjian’s death, his apprentice Luanti’ava took control of the tower. She locked the tower and was unseen for hundreds of years before the current line of Hazards reclaimed the tower but found no sign of the former apprentice.
