Of Kings and Dragons
The tall, thin spire of Highpoint Tower stands atop Aegos’s highest peak. Today little more than a shell, this tower once commanded extensive outbuildings and hosted many rooms where soldiers could train. The tower itself was used to watch the horizon for approaching fleets, and the massive hearth that now lies in ruins within the tower once generated fire and light that could be seen across the island. Bildt’s remote location and the treacherous nature of its seas have done a far better job at dissuading invaders than anything else, though, and eventually the people of Aegos abandoned Highpoint Tower to the wilds. The old trails that lead to the tower from Bildt still exist, although they are quite treacherous to travel. The largest tribe of winter wolves and worgs on the island now claim the ruins, and they do not suffer visitors lightly.
