"All was dark about it, earth and sky, but it was lit with light. Not the imprisoned moonlight welling through the marble walls of Minas Ithil long ago, Tower of the Moon, fair and radiant in the hollow of the hills. Paler indeed than the moon ailing in some slow eclipse was the light of it now, wavering and blowing like a noisome exhalation of decay, a corpse-light, a light that illuminated nothing."
The Two Towers

The Minas Morgul Fortress is the dreadful abode of the Nazgul, a captured and corrupted city of Gondor that now produces Orcs for Mordor.

Minas Morgul is one of the special outposts of Mordor in Edain Mod. It weakens enemies near it.

The fortress of Minas Morgul is one of two special outposts available to Mordor, serving a threefold purpose. It can recruit elite battalions and special forces to aid the war effort, protect and hold an area for territory control purposes, and weaken nearby enemies while producing resources as a supportive role.

All of the elite units of Minas Mogul are orc foot soldiers that are recruited for battle. These special orcs wear heavy armor, allowing them to sustain much more damage than normal Mordor orcs, and the armor also makes them fearless, and thus unaffected by fear-invoking effects that would weaken them or cause them to flee or freeze. This makes them useful in that they stay on the battlefield longer and can more easily overpower weaker troops that lack upgrades, and since they're unaffected by intimidation, they can fight with reckless abandon without a shred of cowardice.

The Morgul outpost also recruits one of the few cavalry units of Mordor, albeit in limited number. The Morgul Riders are a heroic battalion that are built to trample large numbers of foot soldiers for extreme damage. When paired with the Ringwraiths on their mounted steeds, these riders make for ideal companions in battle. The Ringwraiths empower the riders so that they slow down much less when trampling enemies, while the riders become wandering spirits that the Ringwraiths can convert into new phantom swordsmen. Speaking of Ringwraiths, the Morgul outpost can recruit one of them, the Witch-King, adding him to the battlefield to fight for you.
