The Tower of Owen.

The Tower of Owen (オーエンの塔, Ōen no Tō?) is a location in Final Fantasy III that lies to the east of Gulgan Gulch and north of Castle Argus. It is the tower that supports the entire Floating Continent's levitation, and was built by Owen, an Ancient. The party is urged to visit the tower by the Gulgans and must be in Toad status in order to advance past the first room.


Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

The Tower of Owen on the World Map.

After visiting the Gulgan Gulch, the Warriors of the Light head to the Tower of Owen to the northeast. There they are forced to transform into toads to enter its depths. As they climb the tower, they are targeted by mysterious threats and mocked of. However Desch helps the Warriors by activating passages in the tower, which amazes even himself.

At the top, the Warriors meet the evil Medusa and defeat her. However, the Tower is at risk of being destroyed, but fortunately, Desch regains his memories and remembers he is the guardian of the tower. He immediately jumps into the furnace, saving the tower, and allowing the Warriors to continue with their mission.

Spoilers end here.
