A cleric cautiously approaches a tower (Ultima II)

The foreboding towers first appeared in Ultima II: Revenge of the Enchantress. They were similar in many ways to dungeons, but grew more difficult the higher one climbed -- and they could be as tall as 15 stories. Towers were known for their oddly-placed cryptic writings.

This breed of architecture disappeared once Minax was slain by the Stranger and the timeline returned to normal.

Known Towers[]


Perhaps the world of evil became overcrowded, for its forces began building dungeons skyward; towers are upside down dungeons. Watch for secret messages in unlikely places.

- from The Second Age of Darkness (Ultima II)
