    This is a tower designed so that, you can hit or shoot people's feet as they walk up the slope. This tower is very nice because it is a ground archer nest, which is actually just as effective, or more effective as a high archers nest.

    pretty self explanatory, You can remove the doors if you want to allow archers to stand on the ground and shoot, allowing them to never risk getting hit. The pit to the left is a "bomb pit". If someone throws a bomb onto the slope, you can grab it and throw it down there in order to avoid the damage and destruction.

    I've yet to build this in a game yet, and when I do I will probably build it on the Action classic server, because a noob is less likely to yell at me/try to fix it, and this tower reminds me of classic. (plus if I build it in a normal game it's most likely nobody will use it)

    Would this not be better built inside the ground?

    Still, seems pretty interesting, but especially weak to kegs and bombs. Still seems good.

    You could just make a tower with an archer nook like this:

    This is best done 2 blocks off the ground, lets you shoot at the feet of unsuspecting knights, and also makes it harder for battle builders to get through the bottom of your tower.

    Built this today on a server, another builder turned it into an exit with spike spam on it. There was many times I could have used it. For example, it provided a great place to snipe the enemy ballista sitting on top of the hill, but nope. Had to destroy it.
