The Dark Tower is the center of all creation. It is said to be Gan's body, and is held up by 6 Beams of great size and length, visible only by their effects on the lands along their lines - such as patterns in the clouds. At each end of the Beams, there is a portal, for a total of 12. Each portal is protected by a guardian animal. The Tower can only be entered in one of the infinite number of worlds, Mid-World. It is necessary to present a sigul of Arthur Eld in order to enter the Tower and in some legends it is believed the tower gave Arthur Eld the Sandalwood Guns.
The Tower is a six hundred floor spire made of black stone, and the only entrance is a door of ghostwood, with the words "Unfound" written upon it, the tower has a central oriel window which is striated with thirteen different colours which inspired the design of Arthur Eld's crown. In other worlds, the Dark Tower can take a number of forms including a tiger and a black house. The Rose, however, is not simply a manifestation of the Tower, but a completely separate entity.
