Lord Oberon has long ago hidden his home of Avalon in the mists. Able to be found only by those endowed with magic... eternally hidden from the world of mortals. But Oberon distrusts everyone, and knew the possibility that one of his children might be mislead by the arrogent humans into showing the way to his sacred land. To prevent this from happening, he built lighthouse watching posts, known only to himself, hidden even from all but a few of his children. The few children he 'trusted' to man the watching posts were bond to the confines of the towers, unable to leave, and only able to confer with Oberon himself. These watch towers were also hidden in the mists, and hovered in between the worlds of the magic, and the mortals.
