Thanatos Tower is a giant structure located near the small town of Hugel.

Background[edit | edit source]

Aside from scarce historical documentation and spoken legends, very little is known about Thanatos Tower's origin. The most widely accepted theory is that the tower was built to honor the legendary magic wielding swordsman Thanatos' victory over Demon King Surt, an ancient jotunn that devastated the Norman world during the Thousand-Year War. According to the legends, Thanatos battled Surt for 10 days and nights before he sealed it in the southern Rune-Midgarts desert.

Thanatos Tower is an awe-inspiring sight today, but it was crumbling ruins when it was rediscovered by the Rekenber Corporation. Interested in extracting its secrets, Rekenber Corporation planned to reconstruct all thirteen of the tower's floors and conduct excavations that will continue the artifact research started by the great Sage Varmundt.

So far, they have restored the tower's lowest floors and had opened them to the public, charging admission to tourists to fund their continuing renovation efforts.

But one day, a strange flash of lightning, bright enough to be seen in Einbroch, recently struck the top of Thanatos Tower. There are differing accounts of what had happened, but the disaster left only a few survivors, all claiming that Demons or Angels attacked them. Despite this tragedy, the Rekenber Corporation refuses to give up and doggedly pursues its goals...[1]
