The Cloak Tower was once the headquarters of a guild of mages called the Many-Starred Cloaks, well-known for both their magical skills and the colorful cloaks they wore. During the cataclysm, the tower (and its occupants) vanished, reappearing a half-year later in a different place. Tales tell that the first thieves who tried to loot the tower upon its reappearance found a tower empty, but with a rack bearing the cloaks of all the mages – ad the cloaks themselves attacked the thieves, leaving only one survivor.
Now, the tower is the headquarters of the Many-Arrow orcs in the city; while orcs would normally be considered a great threat, the Many-Arrow orcs are surprisingly well-organized and disciplined, and they have done much to keep the River District from falling into total chaos. Thus, for the time being, they are almost allies of the city and Lord Neverember; the Lord Protector has much more dangerous enemies to deal with.
