The Tower of Air 'stands' above the peak of the tallest mountain in the
eastern range. It shares the same exterior physical dimensions of the
other towers (60' tall, 50' wide at the base and 30' at the top) but as
it is made from air, it is nearly invisible. When standing close to the
tower, it appears to be nothing more than a shimmering haze in the shape
of a tower. The double doors appear as clouds, and the key is a diamond
set with a turquoise
Keeper of Air Powers
So long as he has the key, the Keeper of Air has many special powers, the most
visible being his ability to fly at will and become as invisible as the air itself.
He can turn a hurricane into a gentle breeze, summon a tornado from still air,
or anything in between. Winds to not affect this Keeper, nor do poison gasses
or fumes or anything that can be breathed. This control over the air does give
the Keeper limited control over the weather, but not complete. He can use the
wind to move clouds into or away from an area, but as clouds are made from water,
he cannot create them, nor can he control lighting. His control of the air can
also be more subtle than creating gusts of wind. For example, more air can be
added to a small space, increasing the air pressure, or removed altogether,
creating a vacuum. It is also possible to remove the oxygen from a given area,
snuffing out flames and causing living things to suffocate. As with the other
Keepers, air elementals and air spirits may be conjured or banished at will,
and will always obey his commands. Avian creatures will recognize the Keeper of
air and never harm him. The Keeper may transform into vapor and back to his
normal form at will.
Earth is the bane of the Keeper of Air. The touch of the earth, itself, will not
harm the Keeper of Air, but any attacks which are based on earth or contain
earthly elements (stone, metal, etc.) will do increased damage if his defenses
are penetrated. Going underground is a bad idea for this Keeper, as his powers
will fade if he is confined within the earth. Being completely buried will render
him powerless. Earth elementals and other earth-spirits will recognize this Keeper
for what he is and most likely attack on sight.
Keeper of Air Unique Ring - Anemoi
The ground within the ring simply falls away, disappearing within the cloudy depths
of the domain now ruled by the winds. The clouds prevent the Keeper and his/her
opponent from seeing precisely where they step, but the levels it provides allow
for multi-tiered dueling of the most frantic manners. Massive gusts of wind allow
the duelists to leap from cloud to cloud, creating a sensation similar to flight.
Those able to fly will find that in this ring, their maneuverability is hindered by
the gusts. The seasons affect this ring, making it unique among those of the Keepers.
Spring (March-May) - The West Wind rules and soft, warm winds dominate the ring.
Summer (June-August) - The East Wind rules and dry, heated winds berate the ring.
Fall (September-November) - The South Wind rules and searing, humid winds saturate
the ring. Winter (December-February) - The North Wind rules and chill, violent
winds fill the ring.
