During the absence of people, a tall unfinished tower appeared in the burial ground. No one who had been in the city before the catastrophe remembered anything like that, which made the construction even more terrible and attracted desperate adventurers and explorers.
For those who returned to the burial ground, the tower became a kind of sacred symbol. A cult formed around it, the followers of which decided to settle right here - in abandoned buildings. Most likely, it was they who unearthed one of the mounds at the foot of the Tower, exposing a half-destroyed dome, in the center of which the forgotten reactor started to work. A lot of dark rumors originated about him. Someone said that it was only thanks to him that the city eventually turned green again, and the deadly anomaly disappeared. Someone said that the reactor is not so harmless, and it works on human sacrifices. Therefore, the cost of the revival of life in the region is prohibitive. And some madmen believed that the reactor feeds the nameless Tower, allowing it to climb higher and higher.
Of all the variety of crazy versions, the latter most often shakes the air of the Valley. It is supported by the cultists, who proudly call themselves Lookers-in-up. They believe that human lives are needed to keep the reactor running, and they wait patiently for the blood-packed Tower to continue to creep up. According to their legend, when the monumental structure finally reaches heaven, they will all climb it and watch the Burial Ground from the clouds, and with it the rest of the world will again be flooded with anomaly. But much, much more deadly.
Whatever it was, now, when the terrible city was finally partially accessible to the Wasteland raiders, many survivors rushed here in search of the remaining values. It is not surprising that the mystery of the Tower especially attracts their attention.
