This place might change location, or name. All depending on my decision to

West of Anathar's Dell, there is a tower without entrance. The current
knowledge, of the common folk of the Dale, about this site is better described
by the following entry, in the journal of Glaenal from Anathar's Dell.
When I was a young boy, I asked my father about the tower. He said, that he
did not know much about it, that the tower had always been there, and that
nobody claimed it. He also said that the tower was too close to goblin and orc
lands, and that we should never travell to it. That was all.
In the Year of the Tankard (1370 DR), when I was sixten years old, my
friends and I, decided to take a look at the tower. The tower is located six
miles west-north-west of Anathar's Dell. It took us two, three hours to reach the
tower. It did not look like a tower to me, it was more like
one of those temples built by Cormyrian priests of Helm. The tower was not
so high either, only 70 feets. I remember that I had always tought that it was
several hundred feets high. But, it was not the tower that took my attention,
but the gate in the bluff. One hundred feet from the tower, there was stone
gate in the mountain. And a stair lead up to gate. When we were going to explore
the gate, a voice called us.
"You should not be here", the voice said. We turned around, and
saw a man standing close to a tree and some bushes. He was not tall, but not
short either. He was armed with a short bow, and I remember that I tought that
he was gooing to kill us. "Orcs have been here, less than a day
ago.", he continued. The stranger had also a longsword and his traveling
outfit was green and gray. "Besides, a strange creature has taken the
tower as residence.", he added. The stranger had black long hair and
beard, as the northen folks. But, he did not sound like a foreigner. "You
better go home, we will walk you home.", he said and started to go. We were startled, I remember, and, then there were sudently four of them. And
yes, we did as they said. They took us home. That was my last trip to the
Now, a human does not live so long, and maybe dwarves and elfes have
something else to tell, but then, you should better ask yourself.
