Exalted South: Crimson Sands
The Spire of Calima
Air Manse ●
The Spire of Calima is a small minaret jutting off the side of a half-intact tower within Old Chiaroscuro. Constructed of sapphire glass and blue jade, most of the structure is open to the warm winds of the South. Despite this, a cool breeze always blows making the spire comfortable even during the hottest seasons. Its domed balcony is inlayed with moonsilver and adorned with ornate wind chimes that can hear and project sound everywhere within the manse. There are many hidden passageways throughout the slender tower, offering multiple ways to get from room to room. Due to the exposed nature of the structure, sand accumulates in the corners and hallways, requiring at least a monthly sweeping.
Game Effects: (Manse’s rating of 1) x2 +2 Maintenance (sweeping away sand) = 4 Creation Points. The Spire of Calima has many Hidden Passages (2) and moderates heat via a Comfort Zone (1). The wind chimes found throughout work as Mela’s Sweet Whisper (1). A Jewel of the Flying Heart crystallizes in in the central balcony.
