The Tower of Knowledge

The Tower of Knowledge is a monument during the days of old Sosaria, located within the Lands of Lord British during the era of Ultima I.


This tower was one of eight major sites in the realm that adventurers once quested to find, in search of power or at the behest of the numerous kings of the land. In particular, the Stranger would be sent to this location at the command of the King of the White Dragon of the Lands of Danger and Despair.

The sign marking the tower's location bore the strange inscription, reading "Turis - Scientia - Magnopere"[1]. Visitors to this site were subject to strange forces, capable of increasing their intellectual capacity for the traditional magics of wizardry.

After the death of Mondain, and the sundering of Sosaria, this tower, like many prominent landmarks, vanished with the passing of time. It is not known what became of it.


  • "Turis - Scientia - Magnopere" translates roughly to "Tower - Knowledge - Deeply" in Latin.[2]
