Ost Forod is a settlement located within the area of Tyrn Fornech, in Evendim. [7.8S, 64.2W]

The name is Sindarin for "Fortress of the North" and once that was true; high above the neighbourhood it stood vigil at the way through Evendim from the Shire in the south to Forochel in the north. Business was thriving and the nobility of Annúminas brought wealth and flair to what was once a town. Now inimical ruffians are openly roaming the village and would probably assault visitors was it not for the new Arbiter.

Ost Forod provides its services at a number of levels, climbing uphill towards the unreachable tower at the hilltop. The lowest level hosts a stable-master, mile-stone, mailbox, and most quest-givers. A healer and armament vendors for level 25 to 40 are found at the western wing. Further up and to northeast lies an excellent craft-fair with a provisioner, grocer/healer, and trainers. And the highest level, to the northwest, hosts a tavern keep and supplier.

The "Sparring Circle" can be found a bit downhills from the eastern gates and there the Bounty-hunter challenges take place.

Lore

"Rumors of lost treasure brought adventurous Men back into the region surrounding Lake Evendim, where the ruins of Annúminas and the tombs of the Kings of Arnor remain. These treasure-hunters established a town and trading post in the northern reaches of those lands, amongst the ruins of the old fortress of Ost Forod. Here they were content to scavenge for trinkets unearthed by time and weather, hunt the great Harts of the North, and trade with the Lossoth, the strange and sometimes dangerous Snowmen of Forochel.
"In these latter days, a less savoury element has entered the ranks of the Men of Ost Forod: brigands and tomb-robbers who plunder the very graves of the Dúnedain themselves. Though the Men of Ost Forod have chosen an arbiter from among their ranks to administer some form of law and justice, he can do little to stem the swelling tide of lawless men." — lorebook
