Calenhad: A Beacon of Gondor (MERP ICE #3203)
situated within the northern foothills of the Ered Nimrais, Calenhad is one in a sequence of 7 beacon-towers. Its watch-fire relays caution to Minas Tirith of any assault on Gondor's frontiers. no matter if a Dunlending invasion from the west, an Orcish raid around the Anduin, or civil strife inside of Calenardhon, the tower's beacon is decided ablaze.
Calenhad's increased web site on steep cliffs initially sported only a impolite signal-platform. The structure's fire-cage, while set alight, warned within sight Gondorian settlements of incursions by means of Dunnish tribes. Centuries later, while Easterlings raided around the Anduin, a extra bold tower was once equipped over the platform's ruins. because the Shadow in Mordor grew, the tower used to be accelerated and bolstered to develop into a citadel of substantial army significance.
