I'm confused - UU was founded long after AM - but it says in the books that the Tower of Art was there first and the city was built around it. So did the Tower of Art exist before UU despite being magical? Or did I misread something? - Hapenny, 19th December 2007.

I never really thought about it, but I wonder if it was a tower of sourcery back in the bad old days of the sorcerers? Maybe AM used to be a sourcerer's castle or something, and the tower is the only thing that was left standing after the Mage Wars? The mind runs rampant w/ possibilities!

The Companion says it's ancient beyond knowledge, certainly much older than the city.--Old Dickens 23:44, 19 December 2007 (CET)

A sorcery tower is possible, but this may or may not have been its original purpose. --Confusion (talk) 07:30, 1 January 2014 (GMT)
