Glasmelyn Llaw
Description A tower constructed of green crystal, built by the wizard Tarlada. It has the appearance of a giant green hand thrusting up from the ground, hence its nickname "the Emerald Hand". Located in a remote part of the Quiashrion Woods south of Dargon, it was infiltrated by Cefn and Je'en when they rescued a gypsy woman whom Tarlada had captured. After the wizard's death, it lay abandoned for several months until a pair of adventurers discovered and looted it. Unfortunately for them, the tower's magical defenses caused them to turn to stone.
