Fushaum Bal (Black Speech for Fire Encampment), sometimes called just Fushaum (Black Speech for Encampment), is a landmark within Talath Úrui on the Plateau of Gorgoroth. [55.9S, 13.2E]

This walled town served as an encampment for the Men who served in Sauron's army. Since his downfall, the Easterlings and Haradrim remain here under the rule of their commanders, and have fallen to infighting. Fushaum Bal is divided by a deep gorge through which runs a river of lava that flows from Orodruin to the north-east. Now the north and south halves of the town are locked in conflict, the inhabitants of each seeking to wrest control of the entire town.

Fushaum Bal North is inhabited by Khundolar Easterlings under the command of Khirgi, the Hunter. Their faction seeks to gain control of all Fushaum Bal so that they may retake Fushaum Tûm from Thorakó, the Hewer.

Fushaum Bal South is inhabited by Haradrim under the command of Thâng, the Knife, and by Sûhalar Easterlings under the command of Mâlatuk, the Hammer. Their faction seeks to hold Fushaum Bal so that they may take for themselves the treasures they believe Sauron still owes them.






The following creatures are found within this area:


Frodo Baggins and Samwise Gamgee could see Fushaum Bal out on the plain when they climbed the Morgai.[1]
