The Spire is an ancient Elven building, abandoned so long ago that no one remembers when it was built, or by whom. It is by far the tallest and most graceful building in Baden’s Bluff, impossible not to notice, a long, sharp, elegant spike rising from the Crown district, vising shining for miles out to sea on a clear day.
It is closed and rumored to be haunted by the ghosts of the powerful Elves who built it – not even Orcs or Goblinkin go there.
Once used as an astrological observation post by Elven visitors to the city, long before it was known as Baden’s Bluff, the Spire is now home to Zaindal the Drake. During the day, the vast undead wyvern takes refuge from the sun in the Spire. At night it comes out, perches atop it where the old observatory stood, and gazes balefully down on the city.
