2500th Year in the Era of Decline

Created by

Something about this place seems artificial, and strange. Clockwork servants roam the many levels of this unimaginable tower. Its denizens are people from all eras and locations, all gathered here, in the tower within purgatory. Synthacrosia is entering it's 3000th year of operation, and it's 2500th year of decline.     New souls arrive at the bottom of the tower. Floor one, within the Coalescent Dome . It's a picturesque landscape -- a small, quaint pond, with a single island, and a single tree. The surrounding area is nothing but an expanse of green hills. Before long, the rolling green hills and the impossibly blue sky meet. A faint rectangular outline in the blue sky betrays its true form, a wall, complete with a door. Through the door, through "processing", and out into the dark expanse of the first floor is where new souls find themselves.   The floor is massive, with the ceiling only barely visible -- the walls are too far away to see. The air smells of rust, giant gears laboriously turn for unknowable mechanisms, and a strange half dark half light fills the area.

Welcome to Synthacrosia, the great tower of purgatory.

  Stretching an unknown level of floors up, Synthacrosia extends into the abyss that is Purgatory. Floor one is dark, mechanical, full of rocks and dust. Floor two is occupied by a mysterious forest, with a cursed river running through it. Above that is floor 3, a massive, uninhabitable desert. Floor 4 appears to be an ocean spanning the entire floor. Floors 5, 6, the rest, are unknown, needing to be discovered by the party.
