Rangers of the North
The Forsaken Inn
One day’s journey east of Bree on the Great East Road, travelers will find the Forsaken Inn, and it is likely to be the last outpost of civilized life they will encounter for some time to come. The Inn itself is in disrepair, with a variety of cobbled-together wall fragments and a severely neglected roof – however, any roofed structure (even one with only half of its roof still intact), is a welcome sight in these lawless lands.
The Forsaken Inn is the Lone-lands settlement closest to Bree-land. Located on the Great East Road, it lies in the shadow of Weathertop. A respite for travelers, the Inn has a milestone, mail service, and many merchants. In additiopn to the Inn’s proprietor, NPC Anlaf the forlorn, and his staff, there are many travelers and guests at any given time.
To the north and northeast lie the ruins of the fortifications of the war between Arthedain and Rhudaur, now occupied and spanned by camps of orcs and goblins. Ruins also lie to the southeast, and along both sides of the road to the East. A long journey across the Lone-lands in that direction eventually leads to Ost Guruth, the last settlement before the Hoarwell, which marks the borders of the Trollshaws.
