City at Abarksen
The Abarksen is an unatural formation brimming with Arcane power. It appears to be a tapering stone pillar about thirty feet tall with a single perfect hole about three feet in diameter near it’s tip. When inert, which is most of the time, it is a plain dark gray with deep but narrow cracks scattered on it’s surface.
It’s power and unknown origin brought many wizards to the area, seeking to study and understand the stone.
What causes the stone to activate is unknown, and such an event has not been triggered in a hundred years. Some think the wizards at the The Mage College know how to use it, but those rumors are unsubstantiated.
