High in the northern Icerime Peaks is a city built around an ancient observatory discovered by the Surtovas centuries ago in the early days of Issia. In spite of its apparent age, the observatory is perfectly preserved, maintained by powerful lingering magic. The same night House Rogarvia vanished, Skywatch sealed its gates. No one, not even couriers or supply caravans has so much as been acknowledged at the gates and no one has left the city. Even divination magic cannot penetrate its walls. Rumors fly.
