This is a new series articles presents playable adventure sites that expose your Middle-earth players to the richhistory of and dangers in the lands. All of the sites in these articles can be played by your players if you areplaying in the Third Age without necessarily coming into con
ict with the Fellowship, allowing you to use theWar of the Ring as an ongoing backdrop to your campaign 'running alongside' that story.Each entry begins with a short history of the ruins, followed by a brief description of the climate. After that afew story hooks are mentioned. The entry concludes with a description of what the ruins may be like today.The Narrator will have to create maps and encounters, of course.

by Joel SandaAmon Sûl ("Weathertop" in Westron or Mannish) lies at the southern end of the Weather Hills and was awatchtower that stood near the center of ancient Arnor. Elendil built the tower to hold a Palantir. In its laterdays, it marked where the kingdoms of Arthedain, Cardolan, and Rhuduar met after Arnor broke apartfollowing the death of its last king, Eärendur, in 861 of the Third Age.Weathertop lies about 100 miles east of Bree, along the Great Road. It is the highest point between Bree andRivendell along the Great Road so it makes an obvious point to survey the surrounding area.

LIMATE
Summers and winters are both mild. It's not uncommon for fog to
ll low-lying areas during cool times of theyear, lending a haunting scene for those gazing on the lands around from the top of Amon Sûl. The countrysidesurrounding the hill is scattered woodlands interspersed with some short grasslands. Concealment along theroad is particularly dif 
cult if there are watchers on Weathertop. Rain is common in the spring and earlysummer.

DVENTURE HOOKS
Weathertop is a convenient place to rest when traveling to or fromBree. Because it's the highest point along the Great Roadbetween Bree and Rivendell, it makes a convenient placeto observe the surrounding lands.
 
The small hollow with a nearby spring on the hill'snorthwestern slope where Aragorn led the hobbits isa possible rest stop, and some travelers are likely tobe aware of this spot.

HE RUINS TODAY
Today Weathertop is a ruined tower, with little leftbut the road leading up to the hill's summit and a ringof broken stones. There will likely be no timber or woodremaining from the tower's construction, as it has eitherrotted over the years or been used previously for
res.
