Outside the town there is a small outpost- positioned at the top of a small hill. I've decided to go against my first instinct which was to have a more natural rounded hill and landscape and instead go for this kind of leveling that you can see above. So when we come to mountanous regions there will be a lot of these layers positioned at random heights, I don't want the world to look too artificial, but I also do want to keep this style going, so I'll have to do a few different versions to see what works.
Anyway, from left to right we have a small log wall down the hill to prevent access to the town without the say so of the guard- usually within the tower. And then we have the tower itself, with it's position you can see how much of a vantage point it provides!
