The Hunt is on...
Located at the heart of the Wise Quarter, this ominous white tower is made of solid marble, or something very much like it, perhaps of a magical quality. At a certain time of day, from a certain distance, the tower can be seen to bend and shimmer, like a quill halfway in a vial of water or a mirage above the desert sands.

No further news has surfaced on the issue. The people of Absalom continue to scratch their heads around four in the afternoon as the tower begins its daily dance.
Perplexing phenomenons aside, the tower serves as Absalom’s school of wizardy. Each year many hopeful students take the rigorous tests, but only a select few are ever accepted into the shining white halls to learn of magic and other secret things.
