|“||Retro: what were you planning for the top?
Sprankles: I haven't planned the top. I was thinking a dome, but that would be mighty phallic.
—Sprankles talks tops
It was constructed by Sprankles on the western outskirts of Summergate, between the West Road and Trance Swamp and within walking distance of the Crossroads Item Shop, Bearcote Hive, and Jevie Town. He referred to it as the White Tower.
After weeks of gathering diorite, the tower superstructure was completed on 4E:359.
The fifty-seven meter tower was a four-tier tapered diorite tower supporting five interior levels. The roof served as an observation platform offering stunning vistas of the central Summerlands. It was tall enough for the upper reaches to accumulate snow.
Two days later, they used the tower to take a wide photo of their recently completed Summergate Post Office.
Sprankles was unsatisfied with the building and unsure what to do within its walls, leaving it completely empty inside. After the Black Claim corrupted the region he abandoned it entirely.
On 4E:390, Jinx took over control of the property and renamed it the Rookery. She began renovations by installing a staircase to service the second level and a scavenged gossamer blue-green beacon. The rest of her plans for the tower were postponed until she finished construction of Dark Castle.
Jinx considered the Rookery as a potential location for the Sacrifice, but rejected it because the lack of direct roads made a community gathering more difficult.
|Sprankles: You've got the white tower, what else do you need?
Jinx: im fixing up the Rookery next
Sprankles: Makes it sound like a bar I couldn't afford to go to.
