Galder’s Tower DnD 5E Spell

Hello spellcasters of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for checking out the 26th episode of our third level 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 dnd 5e galder’s tower 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 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 some way incorporate his character kaulder 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 have 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.

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 it’s mechanics and really break down this spell.


  • 3rd-level conjuration
  • Casting Time: 10 minutes
  • Range: 30 feet
  • Components: V, S, M (a fragment of stone, wood, or other building material)
  • Duration: 24 hours

So the effect at a glance is as followed: Create a two story tower with the variety of possible combinations. If the spell is cast everyday for 1 year, the tower becomes permanent.

The cast time is 10 minutes, the range is 30 feet, the duration is 24 hours, at higher levels one additional story for each spell slot level above 3rd very cool.

The components are verbal, material and somatic if you’re curious about that material component it is a fragment of stone wood or some other building material and the school is conjuration. Which isn’t too too surprising. But in any case let’s take a look at it’s full description.


You’re conjure a two-story tower made of stone, wood, or else similar suitability sturdy materials. Anyway the tower could be round or else square in the shape. Each level of a tower is 10 feet tall and also has an area up to 100 square feet.

It Access between some levels which consists of a simple ladder and also hatch. Each and every level shall take on of the below mentioned forms, selected by you cast the spell:

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

An interior of the tower is a warm and dry, regardless of the conditions outside. Any type of equipment or else the furnishings has been conjured with a tower dissipate into a smoke if it removed from it.

An an end of the spell’s duration, all types of creatures and the objects within a tower which were not created by a spell appear safely outside on a ground and also all the traces of a tower and its furnishings disappear.

You can also cast this spell again while this spell is activate for maintaining the tower’s existence for an another 24 hours. You can also create the permanent tower by simply casting this spell in a similar location and also with the similar 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.

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 come equipped with food and that is of course worth noting but that being said it’s still amazing and all 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.

Alternative Uses

If you happen to meet a situation where you’re escorting the 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 traveling 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 tactician to really sit down and sort out the battle. Very cool stuff.
