This decrepit tower stands in the foothills a half-day’s ride east of Riatavin, near the edge of the Shilmista Forest. Orgoth the Tainted lived here and stored the famed magic Tome of Alcaister within, along with decades of necromantic research. Orgoth died at the claws of three fiends he summoned and couldn’t control. Elves of the Shilmista warn explorers away from the place, which holds Orgoth’s monstrous research, wondrous treasures, and more than one demon.
Through the explorations of the Death Gate adventurers, it was discovered that Orgoth’s demon tormentors had kept his brain alive so they could continue torturing him. Since he’d spent so many years studying the Alcaister and the hidden magic of the necromancer Kartak Spellseer, he was able to finally overwhelm and kill the three demons, but unfortunately, he was trapped within the glass cylinder which housed the brain.
