magic reflecting pool
So I'm working on designing an Ultimate Mage's Tower and just wondering what you would put in it.
I'm after everything from the mundane to the truly mystical.
My current thread, Developing a plausible and functional system for Fantasy Economics in an rpg.
Portals, alchemy lab, living quarters, dungeon for magical beasts or prisoners, storerooms, a room where the mage can experiment with the weather (top of the tower?), summoning chamber, servant quarters, herb garden, etc.
Observatory, library, copious amounts of crystal/exotic rock, rooms that defy gravity, space or time, dueling chambers, winding winding winding staircases, a huge balcony for basking in awesomeness, armory(staffs, wands, robes or other wizard apparel...maybe not), catacombs, a scrying pool of sorts and everything Gandwarf said...
Hope this helps
My thoughts on the subject are already available:
Although that was for an evil sorcerer's tower. A more friendly one might have a duck pond, a meditation center, a day care center, a gift shop, and mosaic map of the continent on one floor which changes to show the current weather patterns.
Got to have some sort of flying escape pod for when the hero/villain finally breaks through and is about to kill you. Maybe this pod will automatically go to a back-up tower. Lots of spiked pit traps as well.
If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.
-J. Robert Oppenheimer (father of the atom bomb) alluding to The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 11, Verse 32)

Thats a portable hole aint it ?
In my mages tower I made a long time back I had a lot of the above but also a garden full of wildly enchanted plants some good some terrible.
You need a teleport room too with magics to ensure a safe arrival for you and guests.
