Dark Sun: The Tyrant of Tyr
To gain admission to the Observation Tower or the Golden Tower, one must first petition for admittance. This bureaucratic paperwork limits which templars or imperial guests gain access to which particular ingress. A special department is staffed at the High Bureaus to process all requests. Having gained written permission for right of access, a templar travels to one of the Observation Tower entrances for a preliminary interview with the Senior Templar.
Located outside the walls of the King’s Garden, the Observation Tower appears as a smaller version of the Golden Tower. The most impressive feature is the 75-foot stone bridge that connects the Observation Tower to the Golden Tower. The Senior Templar maintains his offices here. Very important individuals on errands of imperial business are escorted from the High Bureaus to the Observation Tower.
