Choking Tower

From PathfinderWiki
For another meaning of "Choking Tower", please see The Choking Tower.

The Choking Tower, located in the Smokewood of south-central Numeria, was once the domicile of the technomancer Furkas Xoud, a former member of the Technic League.12


The 60-foot-wide soot-covered stone tower rises above the surrounding trees to a height of 220 feet, with strange pipes and chimneys sticking up farther. There are few windows on the tower, all of them covered by metal slats that leave inch-wide gaps. Its front door, a sealed iron hatch, is damaged and lacks any apparent means of opening it.13


Xoud is believed to have relocated here in 4703 AR to conduct research into the manufacture of golems, but as of 4712 AR had not been heard from for many years and may be dead.12 Despite this, strange rattles and cranks were occasionally audible from the tower, and smoke occasionally billowed from the chimneys, leading some to conclude that it remained occupied.13


The Choking Tower is the central location of the Iron Gods Adventure Path issue of the same name.
