Tham Amothir

Tham Amothir is a landmark within the Yondershire, in the Shire. [27.3S, 86.4W]

High above the lush fields of the western Yondershire lies the ruins of an old Elven settlement, a way-station for people from Gil-galad. Its beauty still shines through, in spite of the half-orcs that defile this location.

An overgrown path uphills begins at a fallen tower. [27.0S, 86.9W]

Prior to the Third Age, the land now known as Yondershire was wilderness, primarily consisting of wooded hills and heathlands rich with game animals. Both the Elves of Lindon and the Men that would come to be known as Hill-folk often fared into the wilds, but they made few permanent settlements here. Tham Amothir was one such, and it served as a way-station for the folk of Gil-galad that came here to hunt.
The Elves called this country Arassien, the Stag-lands, for Gil-galad and his kin often hunted the great harts and hinds that ranged here. After the death of Gil-galad, Círdan used the ring he had been gifted to preserve the woodlands of Arassien in the old king's memory, though the shipwright himself was much more concerned with the building of ships and the crossing of the Sea.
Today, folk of Yondershire can see the beauty of the Elf-ruins that remain, but they find it hard to imagine what Tham Amothir might have looked like when it was new. — Deed
