* ''TabletopGame/Warhammer'' has them by the bucketload, at all levels of grandeur and sophistication. The most impressive is undoubtedly the White Tower of Hoeth in the kingdom of Saphery, where the greatest mages of the High Elves study and perfect their craft. The White Tower is several miles high and home to the greatest collection of magical artefacts and lore in the known world, as well as a vast community of mages, loremasters, scholars and academics. It is guarded by powerful spell walls, illusions and sorcery, and if those fail it is also home to an order of supremely capable warrior-ascetics who are themselves seekers of arcane knowledge.

* This is {{Lampshaded}} in ''TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening'', with suggestions on how to adopt it to modern settings (i.e. by making your Sanctum inside a penthouse).
** It's actually justified in-universe. Hallows (places where Mana naturally collects) tend to form on high places. Thus Mages that build high towers are more likely to attract a power source.
