The Mountain's Throat Entrance to Goblin Town


Something stirs beneath the Northern High Pass. In grim tunnels deep beneath the snow, goblins toil and fires glow. The pits of Goblin-town teem once more with living foes.

Depopulated following the goblins’ defeat at the Battle of Five Armies — in which the hordes of Goblin-town sought vengeance for the death of their leader, the Great Goblin — the foul warrens beneath the High Pass did not remain empty for long. Goblins from throughout the mountains reclaimed Goblin-town and a new Great Goblin rose up to lead them. Rumor has it that the Great Goblin courts an allegiance with Angmar, which would give the Witch-king a deep and dangerous new stronghold within striking distance of Rivendell. In the dark tunnels of Goblin-town, where hostile creatures blinded by malice and fear follow the whims of the cruelest masters, a one-eyed goblin is king.


Goblin-town is located in The Misty Mountains, north-east of Vindurhal and north of Hrimbarg in the Northern High Pass. There are two entrances, the "main gate" and the "secret" passage; see travelling information.
