Jump to: navigation, search

The Forest of Qohor is a large area of woodland and forest containing the Free City of Qohor on the eastern continent of Essos. It is located east of the Free City of Norvos and west of the Kingdom of Sarnor and the Dothraki sea. The forest stretches north to the Shivering Sea and south to the swamps of the Selhoru. The Darkwash is to the west of the forest, while Vaes Khadokh is to the east along a Valyrian road.[1][2]

Description

The Forest of Qohor is vast and takes roughly two weeks to cross by horse.[3] The Free City of Qohor is located on the western edge of the forest, which also contains the headlands of the Qhoyne. It is the land of the Black Goat, an old god worshipped only in Qohor. Its trees are large, with trunks as wide as city gates and leaves giving a golden hue when submitted to sunlight, making a golden canopy above travelers.[3]

The forest provides much of the lumber used by the eastern Free Cities for their keels and masts, as well as good fodder to trade to the Dothraki when they come off their mighty sea of grass.[4] Animals found within the wood include great elk, spotted tigers and lemurs with silver fur and huge purple eyes.[3] Pine-cones from the Forest of Qohor flow into Dagger Lake by way of the Qhoyne.[5]
