The Watchtowers are bastions in the Supernal World, places where souls from the Mundane World are called and where they can scribe their names, Awakening and gaining the power to use magic. Mage lore says that each Watchtower was erected by one of the Oracles to help free the Mundane World from the curse of the Quiescence.
Five Watchtowers are known to exist:
- Acanthus, The Watchtower of the Lunargent Thorn
- Mastigos, The Watchtower of the Iron Gauntlet
- Moros, The Watchtower of the Lead Coin
- Obrimos, The Watchtower of the Golden Key
- Thyrsus, The Watchtower of the Stone Book
Hushed rumours speak of a sixth Watchtower, The Lone Watchtower, said to be the first Watchtower created, but no one has yet believably claimed to have found it.
