In the northwestern part of Krashin, far from any settlement, a tower of dark stone rises out of the snow. The area around the tower is generally avoided. Many creatures are said to lurk there, and only the bravest dare go face these beings. It is said that a wizard resides in the tower, where he deals with the dead and conjures things into this world that should not be summoned. The beings he summons forth are said to be creatures resembling the dead in many ways. It is rumored that the mage conducts dark experiments to better understand death and especially the qualities of undeath.
