Gwynned - A mysterious explosion obliterated the jeweled Tower of the Gray Voyager in the capital of Ergoth Proper Bakukal, killing 11 people, including two nobles, who were living in an estate next to the tower. The tower was said to be the home of the enigmatic priest Yara.

The Tower of the Gray Voyager was set in a great garden above the level of the city, surrounded by high walls. Church records do not indicate if the tower had any other residents besides Yara, although the Imperial Guard hasn't been able to confirm if the tower grounds were empty or not.

The tower is famous across Ergoth Proper and beyond. There are many mysteries surrounding the tower and every thief knows the story of the Great Book, the book Ergothian's call the Codex of the Gray.

The Guard is leading the investigation into this mystery. Lord Cavalier Lyon Gauguin said that a mysterious man had been seen near the tower walls the previous night. "We are treating this as an attack on the church of Gilean, possibly by a church of darkness or even light," he said.
