‘castle of the elements.’ (Svt) the ancient castle of the Council of Sorcerë. The castle was built under the supervision of the council in the early Third Age, directly into the base of Mount Orendren, which the Synfari discovered to be the magical epicenter of Corwyn.

Desiring its secrets, the castle was besieged by the armies of Alokkair in the year 252 of the Third Age, but he was defeated by an alliance of elves, dwarves, and men at the Battle of Orgorod.

The castle was later conquered in the late Fifth Age by the armies of Sorimmar, who captured the castle, then expanded it for Sorimmar’s use. Once Sorimmar took control of the expanded fortress, he renamed it Erôn-Gothmar.
