and the location of the Sorrows
The Sorrows is a stretch of the Rhoyne from south of Dagger Lake to beyond the ruins of Chroyane. It is full of fog and inhabited by stone men afflicted with greyscale.

The fog of the Sorrows is attributed to the fall of Chroyane and Garin's Curse upon the Valyrians during the Second Spice War. There has not been law above the Sorrows for a thousand years, so pirates are common in the Rhoyne north of Chroyane, although they do not enter the ruined city. Volantene galleys patrol the river south of the Sorrows. The Shrouded Lord is said to rule the Sorrows.
A Dance with Dragons
