In the last battle of a story I am working on the last battle to be over the Space needle in Seattle Washington and I need a strategic reason why...
The Set up: Two groups are fighting over the Space Needle in the now destroyed City of Seattle.
What would be advantage to holding the Space Needle or wanting the Space Needle in an apocalyptic world and why people would fight over it? What are some strategic things about that Space make it a desirable location to try to secure and hold?
The one thing I can come up with is height, where who ever held the Space Needle would have a height advantage. I need other ideas why the Space Needle would be a desirable location.
Plus it's a land mark and a sign of the old world, so prestige and pride in holding a land mark of the old world. Other than that why?
