Overview[edit | edit source]
Weathertop is a small plateau on the Footpaw island in the south of The Island, comprised of a boulder-strewn grassland dotted with trees and bushes. It is surrounded on most sides by cliffs, which can present a fall hazard to explorers if not careful. However its limited access routes make it a relatively safe space for survivors to build, as the paths to Weathertop can be walled off and it can be fairly easily cleared of its low- to mid-level predators, providing a large space for communities. There are very few trees, making wood-gathering excursions into the surrounding Footpaw necessary. There are no water sources on Weathertop, so it is suggested that survivors build water tanks to store rainwater. Despite lacking an abundance of resources, Weathertop can provide a large, safe area for building that provides a view of the surrounding area and can be defended.
Surroundings[edit | edit source]
The Weathertop is in the central region of the Footpaw. There are three points of access from Weathertop to the Footpaw, giving access to a wide variety of areas. In the north is another large, flat area with forests and provides access to the Swamp Biome, while the east and south provide access to rivers, beaches, an inlet usually rich in Trilobites and fish, and forests for collecting wood and thatch. To the west the Red Obelisk is only a few minutes' travel away by boat or foot. Weathertop and the Footpaw are located in a strategic area, being safe and with good access to the ocean on the south coast, while also having one of the shortest and most direct paths to the swamp and Redwood Forests to the north.

Resources[edit | edit source]
- Stone - The plateau is scattered with an extremely large amount of rocks, including lots of small, semi-hard to see nodes buried in the ground.
- Wood - Technically Weathertop is devoid of trees, but the surrounding region is mostly forest so Wood is not hard to come by.
- Metal - Weathertop has no metal nodes, much like the rest of the Footpaw, but it is possible to access small amounts of metal from the smooth river rocks in the surrounding region.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- The name of the location itself is a reference to the Lord of the Rings.
- The GPS coordinates to get to Weathertop are roughly 75 lat, 35 long (75, 35)
