The Rangers of the North have many cities, fortresses, and towns scattered throughout Eriador, the Lone-lands, Minhiriath, Bree, and Enedwaith. Each of these structures is governed by one of the Lords of the Rangers. The capital of all these is Fornost, just south of the northern Eriador Downs. Each city is allowed to have 1 custom fortress near it and under it's supervision and unlimited as long as they are Lore ones.


Fornost is a large rectangular city built of Arnor brick. It sits on a hill overlooking surrounding farmlands and a river to the west. A large stair on the west side leads up to the main gate, which is guarded by a portcullis. Within is a large courtyard. The courtyard has exits on the north, east, and south. The north exits lead to guardrooms and battlements. The south exit leads to a large orchard that sits within the walls. The east exit is another portcullis, which allows access to the inner city. The inner city houses storage vaults, multi-story residences, and the Great Hall of the city, which is where the Lords convene to do their political business.

Fornost is administrated mainly by Combobob, the Chancellor.
