Secrets of the Scorpion page 65 claims the Towers were built in 1123, to serve as a military outpost for the Imperial forces that occupied the Scorpion lands following their failed coup. It is possible that Bloodspeaker mistakenly named Yogo Towers instead Shiro Yogo, home of the daimyo who was killed.
