The rumors of a “shining citadel” of color and light, located at the very heart of the Plane of Shadow, may be fueled by the Blinding Tower - a mysterious edifice from which emerges a blinding light. This light sweeps out for hundreds of feet, slowly circling. Shadow creatures caught in the light suffer excruciating pain, but the light moves slowly enough that some are able to scurry past and assault the tower, seeking a way to extinguish the beam.

The Blinding Tower is a planar touchstone, granting powers of vision and healing to those who know its secrets.
