The Tower of Conundrumus, and how it came to be in Goatskin Gorge, in the Western forests of Klah, has long been the subject of debate amongst historians and locals.
Some insist it was built by Goppenheim Claret, an extremely tall, thin and hygiene conscious man who lived some several hundred years ago, and who apparently used it as a custom-built shower.
Others disagree with this theory, arguing that it was obviously constructed by the local village to safely hide their famous plum cake recipe from jealous neighbouring towns, and still others declare it was erected by King Romulus the Romantic, to enable young lovers to hold hands and watch the setting sun.
Whatever the tower’s origins, it has certainly come in very useful in several historical battles, notably the Battle of Broomsticks in 1816, where an annual jam competition went horribly wrong and resulted in mass fighting with broomsticks by the participants. Fortunately a young boy had the presence of mind to steal the sought after winners trophy and escape to the tower, holding it at ransom over the edge until peace was restored.
The tower is now historically protected, and home to several families of swallows.
