At the center of the Shattergraves is the foundation of the Sears Tower, once the tallest structure in the Fifth World. For mundanes, that’s about all there is to see, but on the astral rises an alchera of the tower as it was the day it fell. Every year on February 10th, the anniversary of the destruction, the towers manifest in the physical world for one day.
Lots of people crowd the tower when it manifests. It’s mostly researchers and tourists, checking out the ghosts moving through the motions of their last day. But, there’s also a lot of magicians looking for astral rifts said to manifest in the upper stories and the windows on the top floor that look out onto Chicago’s astral plane instead of the physical world. Every year, a couple of people are rumored to go missing in the tower, but when the tower fades at daybreak on the 11th, everybody shows up in one piece on the ground, no matter how high they were. Still, you always hear about somebody tricked into taking a ghost’s place, or being eaten by whatever dark critter living in the shadows of the basement.
In most ways, the area damaged by the destruction of the Sears Tower forms the borders of the Noose.
