Eyes of the Land by kalessaradan
Guarding the world from the forces of darkness is an arduous task. The Keeps of Light were established across the realm to assist in keeping a watchful eye over the land. Each tower belongs to one mage, a wizard that has dedicated his life to the preservation of the land and animals under his vigilant eye. For his life-long sacrifice he is given many gifts to assist in his daily tasks, and nothing can escape his watchful eyes.
