Keeper of Earth

Mallory Maeda

Tower of Earth

The Tower of Earth isn't very visible as a tower, as it is embedded into the great cliff-face of the western mountains. There is no visible doorway to this tower, only a keyhole in the cliff 100' from the ground. As the Keeper approaches the doors, a stone stairwell will emerge from the cliff leading to the entrance. The Key of Earth is made of solid obsidian, set with an emerald.

Keeper of Earth Powers

So long as the Keeper carries the Key of Earth, he has access to the powers conferred by the Tower. All things that are 'of the earth,' sand, dirt, soil, stone and even metal, are his to command. The sole exception is brass, which 'belongs' to the element of Fire. Passing through these substances is as easy as a fish swimming through water, and he does not need breath if immersed within. None of these materials may harm, or even touch, the Keeper of Earth unless he should permit it. The earth, itself, will answer to the Keeper's will, moving and flowing as he sees fit, even vanishing or appear from thin air as he sees fit. The Keeper may also transform the various sub-elements of earth to others within its class (i.e., sand can become soil, rock can become gems, steel can become lead, and so on). Earth elementals may be summoned and banished at will, and any such spirit encountered will obey the Keeper's commands. All creatures native to the earth will recognize the Keeper for who he is, and never attack him. Only free spirits or those of unique power can retain their own will. The Keeper may also transform himself into a being of any of the 'earthly' elements and back to his normal form at will.

The Keeper of Earth, however, is very vulnerable to the most plentiful element of all: Air. Air itself is not harmful (as he does need to breathe) but toxic gasses and other air-based attacks will have increased effect upon the Keeper should his basic defenses be breached. Air elementals and all such creatures will know the Keeper for what he is and are likely to attack him on sight. The Keeper of Earth's powers will ebb should he ever lose contact with the earth (such as being levitated against his will) and will fail altogether should he be taken too far away from the earth which grants him his powers.

Keeper of Earth Unique Ring - Titan

Crags and mountainous spears of rock pierce the grounds of the ring, fusing and smashing against one another constantly to form a flat mid-level playing field with spindly pillars of earth rising to various upper-level platforms that tilt and could tumble with a single misplaced step, not to mention the presence of treacherous holes into the darkened and labyrinthine first level's Underdark. The Keeper and his/her opponent must battle it out while remaining aware of their surroundings, watching their footing, and making sure only to cause rockslides when it would be advantageous to do so.
