The Second Tower of Efdup

The new Tower of Efdup in Gobwin Knob features more of a Neo-gothic architectural style reminiscent of the real world Big Ben in London.
After the destruction of the original tower, and the end of the battle for Gobwin Knob, Stanley paid to have the city repaired to level 5. This included a new tower, with a completely new look. The new tower, unlike the original, is square, stately, and symmetrical. It still has a large number of stairs.
