I don't mind using the tower defensively, as I tend to combine the Tower with expansions such as crop circles or festival, which gives you a way to reclaim your follower from the tower once he's no longer needed.

Not sure Crop circles allow you to do that:
The type of follower affected is decided by the tile drawn
(CAR 7.4, p.131)
So you can't take off your follower from the Tower with any crop circle drawn.

Right you are! I didn't mean crop circles, I was just looking for examples. Normally I would use things like the dragon or the plague!
Look to the north. Keep looking. There's nothing coming from the south.
