Area Map

"Tis written that this tower was built long, long ago, at a lord's behest. No accounts remain of why, however. None know what purpose it served. Some say it was to ward against the wyrm; others, an altar to the old gods." - Pawn

The Bluemoon Tower is located in a distant eastern part of Gransys, far north of the capital. It is visible from most eastern coastal areas.

In order to reach the Bluemoon Tower from Gran Soren, travel north along Conquest Road beyond the Windbluff Tower, passing east of Hillfigure Knoll. Take the right of two choices at a fork in the road (the other leads to the Blighted Manse).

Pass through Windworn Valley, where a heavy wind will impede the Arisen's progress. Here a second left fork leads north to a Travelers' Rest encampment, whilst the route to the tower is along the rightmost fork. Then traverse the Pastona Cavern and Smugglers' Pass to reach Cutlass Cape and the tower.

Quests

Enemies

Loot

Random items found scattered around the tower including Light-Cure, Interventive, Dose of Courage, Panacea, and various Coin Pouches. There is an Ore deposit on a lower walkway below the outer ruins which yields rare ores including Fuligin Ore - care should be taken when using indirect mining methods as ore released here has a tendency to drop into the water below.

On the upper tower platform will be found a Portcrystal between the two chests. An armor pile on the north side of the plateau may give Twisted Leathers. There are also Coin Pouches here, totalling 46,100 Gold, and some Bladeleaf.

There are four Seeker's Tokens to be found here, two are on ledges near the first Griffin statue on the left, another at the corner edge of the circular walkway round the main tower (after the locked door), and a fourth is found atop a high column, far above the first two.

Notes

Bluemoon tower, really high up

Upper arcade, above the main area, Bluemoon tower

  • On first visiting the tower consider bringing three Skeleton Keys to open the Smugglers' Pass treasure chests, which are located on the route to the tower.
  • It is a long walk to the Bluemoon Tower. The Travelers' Rest encampment under the Blighted Manse is nearby approximately halfway along the route, and may be useful.
  • The upper arcades of the tower summit (where Harpies roost) is accessible, via a jump from a flying creature such as a Griffin. (may glitch).
  • Though the outer curved path beyond the initially locked door would be accessible by a long jump or harpy ride from the broken walls in the first part of the tower an invisible wall prevents this. This may be to prevent 'continuity' issues during Griffin's Bane if the gates were opened prematurely.

Trivia

800px-Pieter Bruegel the Elder - The Tower of Babel (Vienna) - Google Art Project

The Tower of Babel by Peter Bruegel the Elder (15th century)

  • The tower is vaguely similar to some medieval Northern European (Dutch, Flemish) imaginings of the Tower of Babel (See Wikimedia:Tower of Babel in paintings) In the biblical story of the tower the builders are cursed by God, forced to speak different languages for their arrogance - this biblical confusion is vaguely mirrored in what Pawns say of the tower - "'Tis written that this tower was built long, long ago, at a lord's behest. No accounts remain of why, however. None know what purpose it served."
  • There are three large man-made structures in Gransys, of obvious non-military use, of which the origins are unknown or uncertain. The other two are The Watergod's Altar, and the Catacombs, which, according to pawns, were built for the water and earth gods respectively. It is possible that the Bluemoon Tower is the third, and it would have been likely to have been built in honour of the air or sky god. The symbolism is obvious: the Bluemoon Tower is decorated with statues of winged beasts, and has an elevated position making access to clear skies easy for those with the ability of flight.
