Lady of the Calling Bells (3pp)

The Lady of the Calling Bells, rose to the position of Lady upon winning the annual Red Lotus tournament, a test of combat prowess held yearly in the Blazing Citadel. This achievement earned her lands and station in the material world, and granted her the title of Lady. The Fountain of Misdeeds is a firm believer in the cause of the Blazing Citadel, and takes her charge as ruler of a Tower of Calling Bells to an almost religious level. She recruits acolytes to serve the Tower on a regular basis, replacing them as they burn out. The Fountain of Misdeeds is not skilled in seduction, but more than makes up for this with her fury in battle, and her rage at perceived wrongs.

  • The Lady of the Calling Bells invokes the ethos built into the very walls of the Tower of the Calling Bells. She targets up to 3 people within 20 ft. of the walls of the tower with a DC 15 geas. The Lady of Calling Bells may choose a different geas for each creature. Unlike a normal geas, the affected creatures may attempt a new saving throw at the end of each turn while within the Tower of the Calling Bells.

Tower of Calling Bells

The Tower of Calling Bells is made from polished obsidian, spiraling high into the sky. As the Tower of Calling Bells gains attendants and finds resonance across the planes, the tower grows and changes, altered by the planar song. The Fountain of Misdeeds has imbued the Tower of Calling Bells with her own ethos, and those who seek to confront her within her stronghold must contend with a manifestation of her will.
