What I Want to Know
In the Dungeons and Dragons 4th Edition Neverwinter Campaign Setting (NCS), there is a building called Cloak Tower.
The NCS says this about Cloak Tower:
The tower takes its name from a guild of mages called the Many-Starred Cloaks who lived and gathered there. They were well known in the city for their arcane skill and for the whimsical, colorful cloaks they wore. During the Spellplague, the tower and its occupants vanished. The tower reappeared half a year later on a different patch of ground in the city.
However, the book doesn't make it at all clear where the tower was previously or what its function was. It's also not at all clear how or why it might have moved, or where it went while it was gone.
If the tower is based on something from previous editions, then perhaps someone here knows more about it.
What was the cloak tower before it disappeared? Where was it? Where did it go? What happened to the mages?
Why I Want to Know
My campaign's last session went off the rails a bit and I had to improvise. As a result, the party has found a teleportation engine in the tower's basement, reactivated it, and teleported the whole tower as well themselves and all of its occupants (an army of orcs) to places unknown. I decided the engine would continue to randomly teleport them until it was turned off. So far they've visited a pocket of the astral sea that consisted of nothing, and a volcanic scene in the elemental chaos. I need to decide where the tower is going to end up, and how to get them back to Neverwinter. Knowing where the tower came from and where it went might inform my plan, or at least lead to a more interesting adventure in the tower.
