Tower of Joy is a ruined, round tower in the Red Mountains of Dorne. It lays in the Prince's Pass. It was used as a hideout by Prince Rhaegar Targaryen, where he kept Lyanna Stark. Lyanna stayed there after Rhaegar left to lead his father's army against Robert Baratheon's rebells. At the end of the War, Eddard Stark found his sister there, dying, after he and six of his companions approached the tower, finding it guarded by three members of the Kingsguard. [1]

The main inspiration for the tower. By Henning Ludvigsen, FFG©.

Construction was fairly simple. We built the tower itself during the period in which we halted all personal projects while we worked on getting our new map up (we made a new map in 2012 which had a much better scale). When things went back up we pasted it into the location and worked on the surrounding terrain. It's a pretty small location so things were done in about a day.
