The Sky-Blind Spire

Titardinal's Spire is an ordinary-seeming stone tower at the edge of a large, live-giving lake. Few borderlands towers are so well placed, and it has changed hands many times. Unfortunately, Titardinal wove magic into every brick of his tower, making it a difficult place to hold onto for long. But the wizard's loftiest ambition was never achieved—perhaps you will claim it!

  1. I ran this dungeon for a one shot and it was brilliant! Thanks. Definitely keen to try some of the others. I missed the Compendium Kickstarter - right day wrong timezone - is there a late pledge option?

    1. There's no late pledge option, but both the PDF and a POD hardcover will eventually be up on DriveThruRPG, so you haven't missed anything!

    2. Forgot to say, if you want a notification and link when those products go up, pop your email in the (very low traffic) mailing list on the sidebar, there.

  3. Thanks for the adventure, it's really great. There's one thing I'm not entirely clear about, though.

    If the giants are blind to anything blue, how is the tapestry in the room 18 confusing them? Shouldn't they be able to see the corridor through it?

    I realize I might be making an ass of myself and missing something obvious (after all nobody has pointed it out since almost five years).

    1. Yes, good question! The curse means you never notice anything that's blue. It's not that it's invisible and you can see things beyond it, that part of your field of view never enters your awareness. (Like when you're looking for the mayo in the fridge and it's right in front of you.)

      If someone is doing a systematic search, like explicitly saying, "I touch every part of the south wall, east wall, west wall, north wall," then I think that would overcome the curse (e.g. by the GM saying something fishy like, "the north wall is kinda nondescript, hard to say really,") but anyone doing a less determined search would simply never notice anything is noteworthy about it.
