The Twisted Spire is a tall, undulating structure within the Amorphous Fields.

Background[edit | edit source]

Near the center of the Amorphous Fields, a tower of living, greenish flesh reaches 1,000 ft. towards the sky. From far away, this twisted spire looks like stone, but it's actually organic tissue. Interior vessels carry vital fluids to the top of the tower, pumped by massive, heart-like organs that can be seen beating within it as you approach. Other than this undulation, however, the spire doesn't shift and move the way the surrounding fields sometimes do.

The Halo[edit | edit source]

About three quarters of the way up, the spire is encircled by a ring of metal. This ring, called the Halo, is a circular structure that slowly turns around the spire. It has many green-tinted circular windows on all sides, including the top and bottom. Reaching the Halo requires flight or levitation, but if that can be accomplished, numerous hatches and ports allow entry. Within the ring is a numenera treasure trove - and ancient dangers as well. Explorers report waves of radiation, poisonous gases, and molecular - rearranging energy fields.[1]
