A massive tower made by suit1337 located fairly close to spawn.

Original Construction

The location was originally intended to be an oasis around a Nether portal within a natural desert. After the construction of a ring shaped oasis around a central portal, the burning netherrack and lava moat was constructed. Soon after, suit1337 decided to construct the tower.

While most of buildings like this are hollow, this tower was constructed solid out of stone brick blocks. The stone used to construct the tower was partially taken from a massive quarry located around -2k, -2k which suit1337, DakkaDok and a few others dug for this purpose. A central staircase leads from ground level to the top of the tower with a 2x2 Ironbar pipe with a water break at the bottom.

Due to the inactivity of suit1337 (from around 2013 to late 2016) the tower fell into ruins. Since frequent visitors traversed the tower without much care, the lower sections were completely disfigured. The main entrance hall around the portal (originally constructed out of standstone) was almost entirely destroyed as well.

Infrastructure

As stated, the tower was originally intended as an oasis in the desert. Due to the proximity to spawn, it was griefed frequently and any plans for providing resources were discarded. Though the tower lacks any resupply character, it connects to the Nether subway via a central Nether portal located at the base of the tower. Also the tower is said to hold a clue, where to find the End Portal.

Current Status

As of 2019, the tower stands unfinished and moderately griefed. The Nether portal located at the center still stands, and most of the stairways are still traversable to some extent. The bottom floor of the tower is completely caved in, seemingly the result of a large explosion.
