“I Am The Tower, The Tower Shall Not Be Broken”
The North Tower was established to give structure to new fighters coming up through the ranks, and recognize their achievements as they progress. The rank is structured around gaining proficiency in arms and assembling a full fighting kit. Both of these are significant achievements for new fighters, and as such we recognize them. The Tower also trains new fighters to work as a unit in melee fighting. A well disciplined unit of “junior” fighters will prevail over a mob of “experienced” fighters. The Tower is greater than the sum of it’s parts!
