Places of Power: Visionary’s Perch

Far from the nearest shore, an ancient tower rises from the cold sea. Visitors who brave storm-lashed and pirate-filled waters to reach this remote island can gain a glimpse into the future or answers to their questions…for a price. The ancient cyclops seeress who dwells here, still watched over by the elves who conquered her people, requires a tribute from the penitents seeking her visions. Such prices may be designed simply to help fill the tedium of centuries in her gilded cage, or may in fact be a piece of a plan to rebuild her ancient empire; in any regard, they are non-negotiable.

Notable Locations

Most of Visionary’s Perch comprises locations of little interest to adventurers. A few locations, however, are notable:

  1. The Beach: The rocky beach on this nearby island provides a place for launches from anchored ships to land. It can accommodate up to three boats at a time.
  2. Elvenhome: This stately stone building houses the elves of Visionary’s Perch.
  3. The Working House: This building houses the various industries needed by those who live on the island, from library and offices to smithy and woodshop.
  4. Gate: This gate serves as a bottleneck the elves can use to seal the Seeress’ Tower from any outside forces.
  5. The Seeress’ Tower: A massive structure, built to giant scale in the fashion of the ancient cyclops empire, houses the seeress.
  6. Greenhouse: In this small building grows a supply of fresh fruit and vegetables.
  7. Watch Post:  This small watch post offers an expansive view of the back of the island.
