The Old Toll Tower was a fortification standing on the Solemn Isle, by the mouth of the Blessed River, strategically positioned so as to collect tolls from the various vessels that might pass from the sea to the river or vice versa. Hated as a symbol of Imperial interference in the lives of the common man, the Toll Tower was destroyed during the sack of the Pale City by the order of Auren I, as it protected the last remnants of loyalist resistance.
