Accursed Aether Tower
Unlike conventional Aether Towers, the Accursed Aether Tower not only
transmits Aether, but processes it for more effective use. "Effective Use"
is a subjective thing though, and the Strifeshadow-tainted Aether produced
by the tower is hardly useful to the living unless it is
purified back into its original form. This proved to be a major problem
for Warlord Jurahlas of the Seeking Hand of Ashram and the Shade Tyrant
Neraxtanus, the Thrice Revived, who for some months collaborated with each other in a mutual
attempt to break away from their superiors. They managed to get around the
problem by developing a technique by which the Strifeshadow-tainted Aether
transmitted by Accursed Aether Towers can be filtered by a Dark Elven Aether
Tower, recovering all of the original Aether, and dissipating the
Strifeshadow. As one would expect, this technique has been seldom used since
the rogue leaders were deposed by the Dark Elven assassin Kotaran.
Accursed Aether Towers function much like normal Aether towers
when transmitting Aether with only a few exceptions. One notable difference
is that due to the hold Strifeshadow can have on Aether, the effective
transmission range of Accursed Aether Towers is slightly higher than
average. Unfortunately though, due
to the more sophisticated nature of these infernal Towers, damage done to
them is more likely to inhibit the effectiveness of the transmission.
Fortunately for The Accursed, this is a valuable tradeoff for them; due to
their ability to hold terrain well, having to build fewer Aether Towers
amounts to a slight but significant savings which is in turn applied to
raising more Accursed...
