The small fishing village of Sevant’s Cove lies north of Hardby up the Selintan River. Across the river stands a partially collapsed tower, unused for over a decade, with a broken well nearby. The wizard Sevant was once an adventurer who explored the western Flanaess, finally returning to his home in Furyondy. He later chose this site to build a home when he retired. He pledged his powers to defend the villagers if they would name their settlement after him. They agreed, and he kept his promise. After many long and fruitful years, he was attacked by a rival wizard (the Black Sorcerer of Verbobonc) and slain shortly before the Greyhawk Wars.
Now vacant, adventurers tried to loot the Sevant’s Tower-and those who got out alive told stories of deadly magical traps. Since then, it has remained untouched. The villagers don’t go near it. Some believe it is just not wise to mess with a wizard’s abode, while others profess that it is haunted, telling tales of ghostly lights and a creature of darkness that prowls the ruins. Still, the town benefits from the effects of some enchantments that remain, such as continual light street lanterns, permanent alarms on house doors, cantrips that clean clothes, and detect spell posts that warn the townsfolk of the approach of evil and undead.
