Full Item Description
The Arctic Spire is a tall red and white striped pole roughly twenty feet in height and three feet wide. It radiates an aura of icy cold and winter frost, centered around the glowing crystal sphere at it’s pinnacle.
The fey are a strange race. They do strange things for incomprehensible reasons, yet the Arctic Spire is perhaps one of the more understandable of their creations.
It’s sole purpose is to keep people away from their winter fortress, far north of any human settlements. Because the fey that reside there are immune to the cold, it was perhaps the wisest thing they could do to bathe their lands in the coldest temperatures known, uncomfortable to all but the hardiest of creatures.
In this task it has proved more than worthy of their efforts, for as of yet, none have made their way to the fortress through the terrible weather.
The Arctic Spire chills the air around it so much that within a few days snow begins to fall to the ground, though areas with less water in the air will get less snow. Regardless, the snow comes from a temperature change, so whether or not there is enough water to make snow, the area will become extremely cold.
If left somewhere long enough, the frozen area can grow to span an area miles wide.
