Tower of the Eternal Sleeper
The Age of the Archmages, culminating in the Great Mage Wars and is believed to have led to the the Cataclysm that did shatter the great works of the Golden Age of Legends. Their numbers did include Critos the Black – Eater of Souls, Hotspur the Red – Phantasmalist, and Lancelin the Last. Lancelin is said to still be sleeping in his forgotten tower, waiting for some disputed omen.
Sages have put forth a variety of theories as to the location of the tower (some going so far as to suggest it moves with the changing of the moon) and the event that will awaken Lancelin. Some of the more popular theories include:
- the Eternal Flames of Dis being extinguished
- the return of the Dragon Lords
- the return of a man would be god – mage whose name has been erased from all records
- when the stars are right
- the Third Cataclysm (though some posit the reverse, that Lancelin waking will be the sign of the Cataclysm begining)
