View of the tower from the city wall

Central Tower is a partly ornamental and partly functional edifice located at the exact centre of DrumCity, giving a view over the entire city.
The tower is built of smoothstone with a halfblock and wood top, resembling a royal crown. The tower itself is vaguely styled around a king chess piece.
This is one of a series of towers by SlowRiot constructed during the founding of DrumCity at the precise centre of the carved out drum, to aid in city planning and as an orientation reference for visitors.
Central Tower is an exception to SlowRiot's practice of constructing his towers from bedrock to sky limit. It was felt that a tower of that height world would not be in keeping with the style of DrumCity, and its view over of the city would be impaired by clouds, and be at an unfavourable angle. Its constructed height provides a good view over the city and of the surrounding landscape.
Similarly, ToneDial's plans to build underground vaults below DrumCity meant that it was not excavated to the bottom of the world like the others in the series. Whether ToneDial's vaults do indeed exist or not is a topic of controversy.
