The Second Tower of Efdup
After the destruction of the original tower, and the end of the battle for Gobwin Knob, Stanley paid to have the city repaired to level 5. This included a new tower, with a completely new look. The new tower, unlike the original, is square, stately, and symmetrical. It still has a large number of stairs.
It is not clear where Wanda's living quartersErf-b1-p027are located. However given her past displeasure at being quartered in the Dungeon level during her time in Goodminton, it is likely her chambers are somewhere in the Tower.
