The Clockwork Tower is one of the many mechanical marvels that dot the landscape of the Basilisk Protectorate. Constructed on metals not native to this plane, and not designed by any terrestrial mind the tower is an enigma to all but the artificers who dwell within.
Drawing energy from the land itself, the structure is a mass of perfectly interlocking gears and cogs that can cause it’s floors to revolve, telescope to one quarter of it’s height, or rise to three times it’s size. The exact purpose of this is unknown, but it has aided multiple times in the past with defense.
Against the tenacity of the undead horde, however, the defensive tricks of the Clockwork Tower meant nothing. The undead breached the defenses and slaughtered the Artificers within, the remaining Basilisk Knights were forced to retreat.
