A Lamentation of Thieves
Ezraban was the mage that occupied the tower (that would eventually become part of the Darkstar Inn) approximately 200 years ago. Discovering the structure, he rid it of beasts and vermin and made it his home. He was fascinated with light and how it could be manipulated by magic to a variety of effects. Most importantly, Ezraban theorized that light was the basis of most common life forms. He hoped to construct a machine that could harness the power of light. To this end, he spent his tenure here in the tower summoning extraplanar beings in hopes that they could provide him with the knowledge he sought. One of them directed him to a material known as nullium, a piece of protomatter that was one of many building blocks used during Creation.
