The Tower of Savose Greenoak, Mage of the Country (Petrichor 365)

9 January, 2023

Outside of the commonly accepted boundaries of Port Imperial, and outside of the new wall being built, is the tower of Savose Greenoak, an elfin wizard who specializes in the magic of nature and the countryside.  It was built and grown over the course of a season soon after Petrichor was opened to exploration.

Fruit from the orchardIt is a unique structure for the area standing among gardens and small orchards the border of which are marked by a low stone wall that would barely slow an intruder but serve their purpose.  Those who would wish to steal from it feel that they are being watched and may be deterred and those that are truly hungry, Savose will share some of the bounty of their garden with, once per season, after that, they will be turned away to find their own way.  The gardens cannot sustain the whole city but it can help an unfortunate to survive one more day.

The ground floor of the tower is made of stone fused together with magic with the roots of trees that form the next two floors twining around them.  A set of roots forms a stairway to the door on the first floor, it and the floor above are made of living trees grown together to form the walls with the branches inside woven into floors and stairs and other useful things.  The windows and doors are magical bonded to the trees.

Amid the branches on the roof is a garden of rare and unusual plants that Savose has found or acquired such as a sapling from the fire tree.

Savose is devoted to learning, cataloging and understanding the flora and fauna of Petricore.  A task, they realize may be beyond even the lengthy lifespan of an elf but it has to be begun by someone.  And while Savose did not ask, the Empress approves of such a mission and has tacitly extended her protection over the tower and its gardens.

Notes: That is enough for today, Savose may get her own entry later in the process.
