"Then Sauron made it into a watchtower for Morgoth, a stronghold of evil, and a menace; and the fair isle of Tol Sirion became accursed, and it was called Tol-in-Gaurhoth, the Isle of Werewolves."
The Silmarillion

Tol-in-Gaurhoth is a fortress that can only be summoned by Sauron after he has received his Gorthaur form (10pp) or has picked up the One Ring. It was originally a fortification of the Noldor, captured and corrupted by Sauron for his evil purposes. It became known as the Isle of Werewolves, and therefore can produce these fearsome creatures. It can also produce resources, receive some upgrades, and make use of swarms of bats.

Only one Tol-in-Gaurhoth Fortress can exist on the battlefield at the same time. It can be placed almost anywhere as long as the terrain is flat and within Gorthaur's sight radius, making it very strategically versatile.
