Ancient records preserved in the musty libraries of Arthedain testified that the Númenóreans did indeed maintain a presence on Pitkämiehen Saari , one of the three isles making up the archipelago at the tip of Forochel's great cape. Royal archives dating from the reign of Tar-Ciryatan (S.A. 1896-2029) told of the establishment of Achrond, a whaling outpost "which stood beside a sheltering cove upon the threshold of Ekkaia." Later entries said that Achrond was eventually abandoned due to the declining success of its whalers. The refuge, an artificially-delved cavern in a hollow of the island's hill, remained largely undisturbed by the ravages of time; but the quays of the ancient harborage had long since vanished without a trace.
