Appearance(s)

Duma Tower (Japanese: ドーマの塔 Doma's Tower) is a Valentian monument of worship to the fell god Duma, situated in the northernmost reaches of Rigel. It is the final dungeon of Fire Emblem Gaiden, and the final destination for both Alm and Celica on their different journeys. In the remake, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, it is the penultimate dungeon.

History

In her quest to locate the missing Earth Mother Mila, Celica ultimately arrived at Duma Tower, where after confronting waves of Duma's servants she encountered the dark priest Jedah at the tower's peak. Jedah offered Celica the opportunity to save Alm from being trapped in the Dragon's Maw by a landslide, by offering herself up as a sacrifice to Duma in exchange for Jedah clearing Alm's path.[1] As a result, Celica was trapped in the tower's altar basement, beset by hordes of Mogalls and other servants led by Duma himself.

Later, after conquering Rigel and killing Emperor Rudolf, Alm learned of a path to Duma's altar directly from the basement of Rigel Castle[2] and followed it, obtaining Falchion and emerging at the altar to aid Celica's struggling party. Together, the armies of the two defeated Jedah and Duma himself, ending the war and ridding Valentia of the influence of both gods as the culmination of Rudolf's plan.

Gameplay

Fire Emblem Gaiden

Celica's route

In Celica's route, Duma Tower is accessed in late Act 4 as her final destination. Celica must scale the tower by fighting her way through three rooms containing skirmishes, before being trapped by Jedah to allow Alm's route to continue past the Dragon's Maw. There are also three sets of lion heads present across the four intermediary floors: the entrance floor holds two, the second and third floor hold one each which are counted as the same pair in terms of uses, and the top floor contains another two.

Alm's route

Alm accesses the basement dungeon of Duma Tower in Act 5, comprising the chapter's entirety; unlike Celica's straightforward path through the main tower, Alm's path involves navigating a convoluted puzzle-like layout.

The first goal is to have Alm navigate a series of pits and fall into the right places, fighting through three skirmishes with his army as he proceeds, to reach the stairway leading back up to the treasury. Once he enters the treasury, Alm must fight three more skirmishes, except these times he fights alone with no allies. After clearing all three, Alm receives Falchion from a treasure chest, then must backtrack and navigate the pits again to find another stairway leading to the door where Celica's army is trapped. On entering the doorway, the final battle against Duma begins, with Alm and Celica's armies fighting together.

While Alm explores Duma Tower, the player may be notified of the status of Celica's army while they are held captive. There is a random chance that one or two of Celica's units take small amounts of damage every time Alm enters a room in the dungeon, and once Alm reaches the final battle himself, all of Celica's units will still have the damage they took when Alm was exploring.
