Warning: This page will contain spoilers of the Dark Tower.
The Dark Tower is a dungeon only for members. However, non-members are able to go to floor 5. It has 100 floors, each preceding level with more difficult monsters, and every 5 floors there is a boss. Leaving the Dark Tower makes you start over, unless you defeat the boss on every 5th floor creating a checkpoint. However it costs 500 gold to continue from that checkpoint.
The BGM of this area is:
The Dark Tower may be a reference, or based on the Pit of 100 Trials in the game Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, especially since Mira tells you during the story of the powerful wizard that he created the "Really Really Hard Test of Trials'!" and there having to be exactly 100 floors.
Mira's Speech & Dark Tower text
When you're not a member entering the dark tower:
"Oh no! Only members can access the tower right now!"
Having enough gold to start off from your last checkpoint:
"Do you want to continue climbing the tower from floor <floor>? It will cost you (gold image) 500."
Not having enough gold to start off from your last checkpoint:
"Oh no....you don't have enough gold!"
Upon going to enter the tower, a person named Mira talks to you saying:
"Hello there young one...welcome to the Dark Tower."
"The name's Mira, and this tower was once the home to a powerful wizard, who built it to test the power of other wizards."
"It is said that whoever can conquer every floor and make it to the top is a true wizard."
"But there is a catch! The battles here are harder, and once you leave the tower, you must start over."
"However, if you defeat the opponents on every 5th floor, you can return to that floor if you leave."
Reaching your first boss:
"Here's your first boss...there is one on every fifth floor. Let's see how well you do!"
Story Pt. 1:
"The wizard of this tower was once a student at the Academy, just like you..."
"But the wizard was MUCH stronger! WAAAAAY stronger!"
"The wizard practiced alone, not wanting any help from the other Academy students."
"He didn't want to waste time on them - they would only hold him back."
"So the wizard left the Academy a long long time ago...to train alone."
"He came here and built this tower using his awesome power! What a guy!"
Reaching floor 25:
"You made it to floor 25! One quarter of the way there...not bad, but not great."
Story Pt. 2:
"For years and years the wizard trained here alone. He mastered all the elements, learned all the spells."
"...But the wizard didn't need any help from the dumb Academy to do it!"
"One day, the wizard decided he was done training - he was already the best wizard ever!"
"So he decided to challenge the other wizards at the Academy, to prove he was the best."
"No wizard could match him, and so the wizard created this super-cool test to challenge wizards instead!"
"He called it the 'Really Really Hard Test of Trials'!"
"For this test, the wizard summoned the strongest monsters possible to challenge wizards at each floor."
"These monsters are the bosses of this tower. Here's another one now!"
Reaching floor 50:
"Floor 50 already....you've come all this way to challenge the strongest, have you?"
"If so, then you must first challenge the father of all dragons...Grandoff!"
Story Pt. 3:
"For each new student that tried the test and failed, the wizard added a new floor...and a new challenge."
"When no more floors could be added, the wizard made the challenges harder and harder."
"Eventually, it became obvious that no wizards would be able to climb the tower."
"So the legendary wizard disappeared, and the tower began to crumble."
"The wizard has not been seen since, but students from the Academy still try to climb the tower."
"He hoped that someday a student would be strong enough to challenge him, and so he would return to accept the challenge."
Reaching floor 100:
"Astounding. You have made it to the top of my tower..."
"And so you have earned the greatest of rewards...you must challenge the legendary wizard herself..."
"ME! THE GREAT AND POWERFUL MIRA SHADE!"
"HAHAHA! It was me all along! You should see the look on your face right now!"
"Come, wizard! It's time for you to face the strongest wizard of all time!"
Beating Mira Shade:
"Wow...You beat me...I'm speechless..."
"I can't believe I lost to a wizard from the Academy...I thought I was the strongest!"
"Well then! It looks like I was wrong about you...and about the Academy! You really are the best of the best!"
"Here...please accept this new robe as a gift from me. And tell all your friends to come here as well!"
"I'd love to meet as many wizards as possible...especially if they're as strong as you!"
Continue of climbing the Dark Tower:
"You are certainly something special...are you sure you're from the Academy?"
"The test you are on now...this is the very same test created by the wizard himself.
"Many wizards from the Academy tried it, but they ALL failed!"
"Things have been easy up until now...I think it's time to step things up!"
"You're still going? I'm...impressed!"
"This can't be...no wizards have ever made it this far..."
"...Who are you...?"
"No...you will NOT make it to the top of this tower!" "Face your next challenge...it will be your last here!"
If you have already defeated the Dark Tower, Mira tells you:
"Well hello there! If it isn't mister fancy wizard?"
"You already beat my tower...but come back someday...I may have more challenges for you!"
"Oh no....you don't have enough gold!"
"Hey, you're doing great! Here's a little reward..."
