Hello spellcasters of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for checking out the 26th episode of our spell series. Today we have such a nice spell in store for us. Mechanically it’s amazing but there’s actually a really cool story behind this spell. Today we’re looking at galder’s tower spell this spell is usable by the wizard and it is found in the lost laboratory of kwalish. So this spell has a cool backstory to it.

Long story short there was this long time d&d player named lawrence he was dying of a rare form of cancer and he asked wizards of the coast if they could in someway incorporate his character gaulder into d&d and there’s like a lot of community stuff that happened a lot of people on reddit going nuts over it stuff like that.

Really great example of the d&d community coming together and we get one sick spell out of it. Sadly lawrence did pass away not too long after this spell was released but i can honestly say if you are reading this article or if you’ve used this spell in the past you certainly will not forget ever using this spell and through extension it immortalizes lawrence in the game that he loved as well. But yeah i think is super cool, so i don’t know really nice, really love wizards of the coast for doing that. So without further ado let’s take a look at its mechanics and really break down this spell.


  • Level: 3rd
  • Casting Time: 10 Minutes
  • Range/Area: 30 ft
  • Components: V, S, M *
  • Duration: 24 Hours
  • School: Conjuration
  • Attack/Save: None


You conjure a two-story tower made of stone, wood, or similar suitably sturdy materials. The tower can be round or square in shape. Each level of the tower is 10 feet tall and has an area of up to 100 square feet. Access between levels consists of a simple ladder and hatch. Each level takes one of the following forms, chosen by you when you cast the spell:

  • A bedroom with a bed, chairs, chest, and magical fireplace
  • A study with desks, books, bookshelves, parchments, ink, and ink pens
  • A dining space with a table, chairs, magical fireplace, containers, and cooking utensils
  • A lounge with couches, armchairs, side tables and footstools
  • A washroom with toilets, washtubs, a magical brazier, and sauna benches
  • An observatory with a telescope and maps of the night sky
  • An unfurnished, empty room

The interior of the tower is warm and dry, regardless of conditions outside. Any equipment or furnishings conjured with the tower dissipate into smoke if removed from it. At the end of the spell’s duration, all creatures and objects within the tower that were not created by the spell appear safely outside on the ground, and all traces of the tower and its furnishings disappear.

You can cast this spell again while it is active to maintain the tower’s existence for another 24 hours. You can create a permanent tower by casting this spell in the same location and with the same configuration every day for one year.

At Higher Levels: When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 4th level or higher, the tower can have one additional story for each slot level beyond 3rd. * – (a fragment of stone, wood, or other building material)

Very cool stuff! I really do love it, it’s so cool. This is honestly one of my favorite third level spells and in terms of utility it is virtually unrivaled. The only gripe i have about it is the dining space doesn’t equipped with food and that is of course worth noting but that being said, it’s still amazing and all of this for 24 hours man you can essentially live in luxury.

The biggest downside to this though is it’s not very large. An area of 100 feet is not super huge. I am that you have two levels so you could argue that it’s quite large in that respect but overall if you have a party of five it’s gonna get pretty cramped in there relatively quickly. But that being said, let’s take a look at some alternative uses of this 5e tower spell. Would you like to check out this galder’s tower vs tiny hut.

Alternative Uses

If you happen to meet a situation where you’re escorting a noble or other high-class individual and they don’t really want to sleep outside this is a great way of living it up in style and pacifying they’re whining. In addition to that this is just great for adventuring and travelling in general.

Especially if you have an older member of the party or something of that nature, really helpful, really good stuff. Or if you are a wizard of style and kite class much like the noble example this would really kind of help solidify your image. outside of that this would serve as a great outpost during a high-intensity long-term raid and be a nice clean dry place for you and other tacticians to really sit down and sort out the battle. Very cool stuff!
