The Spire of Mysterious Origin
Outer Spire is a city in its infancy, having only been around for a few decades. The rapid growth from town to metropolis can be attibuted to the abundant air of mystery surrounding The Spire. From the moment that the Spire first rose from the Sea of Swords, the settlement that would become known as Outer Spire was bombarded with adventurers desiring to explore the structure, and with merchants desiring to sell those adventurers whatever they could.
Such rapid expansion led to a depletion of nearby resources, and thus Outer Spire had to quickly turn to importing with its neighbors, a task undertaken by Outer Spire’s governing body, a republic known as The High Council of Consuls.
