#RPGaDAY 19: Tower

Day 19 of #RPGaDAY 2020. Today’s prompt is ‘Tower’.

One of the fantasy tropes is a solitary tower, often the residence of a wizard. It strikes me as a very inefficient way to house yourself. They’re harder to build (at least in traditional methods, and there’s no “Built Tower” spell in D&D) and they’re harder to hide. Yes, you can enjoy the view from the top, but you could also achieve that with, let’s say, a treehouse. And it’s not like there is not enough space in the wilderness for a more sprawling complex.
So why towers? It makes no sense to me.
