Aliban's tower. Art by Jeff A. Menges.

Aliban's Towers are spires on the world of Ulgrotha with no doors or entrance, created by a goblin spell to make rocks grow beneath one's feet as a defense against enemies or as a campsite, trapping one either inside or outside of the tower. They were named after the legenday goblin wizard Aliban. The spell needed to create them has been taught to the inhabitants of Aysen as a show of goodwill by Eron. The citizens of Aysen have build their cobbleroads thanks to this: a wizard would cast the spell, then workers would tear the structure down and use the stones for the roads.[1] Some towers still dot the Koskun Mountains. Feroz and Sandruu nearly camped among them one night before being ambushed by a Root Spider.[2]
