The White Spire
Situated near the heart of the Upper City of Vesk, this gleaming tower is home to multiple arcane schools of thoughts and boasts one of the finest libraries on the continent. Even long established wizards find themselves ushered quickly out the heavily warded, twenty foot tall entrance doors when they lack the proper letters of introduction.
The White Spire is even more intriguing than its exterior architecture betrays. Below the level of the street a complex of labs spreads for multiple levels. These labs contain unusual alien creatures and alchemic experiments growing increasingly dangerous as you descend in levels. Many doors connect to transdimensional space or are portals to other parts of the world and some are to different planes all together.
One of the oddest elements of the White Spire is the stone itself. Composed of the purest white, the stone looks much like alabaster but lacks that stone’s softness. Any normal stone wouldn’t have the necessary structural integrity to be used in the soaring, impossible architecture of the spire. So it is open for debate as to what the stone is and even whether or not it is used to structural sense. How the spire stands remains an open question.
