- Located on the end of a high ridge, originally part of the Drúadan Forest, but long deprived of trees by masons and quarriers who came up the Stonewain Valley, Nardol was manned by a guard, who also protected the quarries. It was well-stored with fuel and at need a great blaze could be lit.
- Built upon this high summit, hence the name Nardol -- "Fire-hilltop." The guard stationed here could build a greate blaze which, on a clear night, could be seen at Halifirien some 120 miles to the west.
