Watch Keep is a squat tower in the citadel of Alestron with views of the signal turrets overlooking the harbor. The standard of Alestron has flown unvanquished ever since the failed uprising.

Layout

There is a ward-room on the ground level, with a spiral stair leading up to a second chamber. From there, a ladder is required to reach the outdoor catwalk above.

Role in the Story

Spoiler warning: Contains plot elements from Stormed Fortress.

Third Age 5670: Duke Bransian keeps watch over troop movements from the catwalk. During the Siege of Alestron, Arithon engages his Masterbard's arts here to awaken Alithiel. With Dakar guarding nearby and Talvish, Fionn Areth, and Kyrialt in the chamber below, Arithon sustains Alithiel's powers to ensure that every combatant has the chance to escape safely. At the end of the siege, Asandir orders the flag of Alestron lowered from the Keep and replaced by the standard of the Fellowship.
