Yeah, the crater should be fairly obvious if you pay attention and notice that there are dead-end areas in both I and II that seem like they'd fit nicely together. Say, that strange room at the end of the Mine in Esteria... that certainly never showed up again.
As for the tower annex, nada. Maybe in a future game or maybe it's just one of those things we'll never know.

i guess it always puzzled me because the music changed inside, you couldn't use certain magics or items, and in origin someone said how it was weird that it could just "float" there, besides having little structural support. it always seemed to be that there's something "special" about that tower, but nothing really was..
the other thing, is why did the goddesses use the black pearl to raise the shrine in the first place? if the black pearl is what caused all the monsters to appear and what not, why not just leave it where it was?
The Goddesses (Eldeen Twins) found the black pearl. Best bet is the black pearl is linked to Darm before the goddesses found it, and the power of thier wings suppressed the link, as Cleria was refined, the pearl's power was being used, making the link stronger, allowing Darm to attack with demons, which led to the events of Origins.
My BEST conclusion is the goddesses finding the Pearl in Canaan, since the key's (swords) of the Ark were made of simular material even the black key Being the SAME material as the black Pearl.
Not to Mention Galbalan originated from Canaan and possibly the Eldeen hero too (evidence, True Galbalan boss in Ys VI)
I do agree that Ys can go deeper in origin as alot of stuff linked in the games have so much unexplained mystery to it.
The Eldeen were the only ones who could refine the black emelas, and they made artifacts out of it, like the Pearl, the Ark, the Key... Only they could control it with the white emelas of their wings (their whole bodies, maybe).
The galbalans were made by the people who sought to take the Eldeen's powers for themselves, out of grey emelas, the only kind they managed to create. One galbalan crossed the sea and wound up in Felghana. It's unclear if it did so before or after the disaster that struck Canaan. In any case, some Eldeens sent a hero to stop it's rampage (it's also unclear if the hero was Eldeen himself, or not), either from Old Canaan or from one of the places the Eldeen went to after the disaster.
Solomon's Shrine was risen into the sky because it was about to be invaded by the demons. It was kept into the sky, probably to keep the Pearl away from the power stored there.
Rado's Annex was special because it was strong with magic demonic power. Thus it could stand with so little support, negate all magic within it, and it housed the Demon Door, which made it an ideal place to enprison someone as powerful as a goddess.
Luther Gemma's my fave character. I thought about the idea of music and Rado and the association with Reah. In Bedekovic's record of Lado-song, the "holy god" mentioned in Slavic verses refers to a forgotten pagan god or goddess associated with fertility and vegetation. Rado spire you can see in the animated Ys Vanished Omen opening on YouTube near the end of the sequence, you get a great view of it^^ I think the black pearl's power caused it to attract the intentions of evil, in the anime of Ys II this curse is a problem.
Reminds me of a certain other game involving spheres & tower...FF Legend, anyone?
