To climb the tower of death
Chapter 1 - The floor of strength Chapter 1 takes place within floor 1, as chapter 2 will take place within floor 2. In chapter 1 the party must come to terms with their own death, and find the inner strength required to overcome the challenges they face here. Learning all the secrets they can, they must find their way to a stair to escape to floor 2. Chapter 1b - Interstitial space The space between floors, and between chapters. The party must find their way through the maze.
Dying a second death reduces you to nothing more than a small, cold, metal coin. The tower is full of lost, sad, and confused souls. The answer lies at the top.
Thousands of years after it's creation, Synthacrosia is in a state of disrepair. It is during this era, after the era of decline, that our party of heroes arrives. Confused, with the harsh reality of their own deaths still freshly on their minds, the party must figure out what is happening. The towers creator, Locorin, has been missing for millenia. His last known location was in his chamber at the top of the tower.
Jaxton Saleg has seen the worst that Synthacrosia has to offer, and he's had enough. His goal is to reach the top floor of the tower and find Locorin, but his motivation to do so is secret. Jaxton is disillusioned by life, having made and lost too many new friends in this tower. In his current state, life is worthless to him. Any that cross his way will be cut down, and their soul coins will be taken. Jaxton attempted this against the party of heroes as they exited the coalescent dome on the Floor of Strength, but he underestimated them and had to flee.
The party has bested Jaxton in their first meeting. Jaxton fled to nurse his wounds and gain more power, never forgetting his main goal of reaching the top and confronting Locorin. The party in the meantime made their way across the Floor of Strength, defeating everything in their way. They have successfully ascended to the floor 1 interstitial space, and now find themselves building up towards floor 2. They have yet to see what awaits them at the center of the interstitial floor.
To ascend the tower, reach locorin, and figure out what went wrong with what shouldve been a second chance at utopia.
Locorin is missing, the tower is declining, and a great power emanates from the top floor.
The tower is still declining, and every new soul is trapped in this place, regardless of their faith in life. There is no heaven to those who arrive in Synthacrosia.

The tower of souls. Massive, too large to comprehend, this tower sits within purgatory, constructed of metal, brass, stone, and pure energy.
Floor of Strength
The first floor of the Tower of Souls. Unfinished in its appearance. Consists mostly of stone, dirt, and metal.
