The War Steadings are a landmark within Goblin-town in the Misty Mountains. [21.8S, 6.2E]

Found just past the Den of the Northern Army, this cavern serves as a barracks for Goblin-town. It is mainly inhabited by orcs, though some goblins and wargs can be found in here as well. Makeshift barricades and crudely assembled camps litter the tunnels and chambers of the cave.

The War Steading serves as a large barracks for Goblin-town, where their soldiers and skirmishers gather and prepare for raids upon the villages to either side of the Mountains. Mostly, they descend through the passages to the east to fall upon smaller and more weakly defended settlements of Men which border the Mirkwood, but on occasion, when their strength grows, they have been known to raid Elf-settlements on the edges of Rivendell's domain – though these over-bold assaults generally turn out badly for the goblins, and few return. - Deed Text
