TORVALDSLAND *a rough land located Northwest of the Hrimgar Mountains, above the Northern Forests and below the Polar Plain where very ferocious and aggressive Warriors live. They do not believe in the Priest Kings, but in Thor* "The stream of Torvald is a current, as a broad river in the sea, pasangs wide, whose temperature is greater than that of the surrounding water.

VICTORIA *bank of Vosk, large, thriving town, one of the founding members of the Vosk League* "The headquarters of the Vosk League is located in the city of Victoria.

Victoria lies rather toward the west, in the reaches traditionally more subject to Cosian influence." Pg. 34, Renegades of Gor.


VONDA *large port city on Olni River , part of the Salerian Confederation* "I think there is little doubt that the cessation of hostilities in the north was in no little part a function of the generosity of the men of Ar, a not impolitic generosity in my opinion, in sparing Lara the fate of Vonda."

Pg. 16, Explorers of Gor.

AREAS:



AR'S TRIUMPH*a military road which leads to Ar's Station, also known as Vosk Road* "It also commands, in effect, the northern terminus of one of the great roads, the Viktel Aria, or Ar's Triumph, leading toward Ar. This is also the road popularly known as the Vosk Road, particularly by those viewing it from a riverward direction." Pg. 63, Rogue of Gor.


THE BARRENS *large grasslands* "They are, in fact, substantially, vast tracts of rolling grasslands, lying east of the Thentis mountains. I have suspected that they are spoken of as the Barrens not so much in an attempt to appraise them with geographical accuracy as to discourage their penetration, exploration and settlement."

Pg. 129, Tarnsman of Gor.


THE NEST *home of the Priest-Kings in the Sardar* "My eyes still did not leave the dominion which lay below me. Its diameter might have been ten pasangs in width. 'This is the Nest?' I asked." Pg. 84, Priest-Kings of Gor.


PILLAR OF EXCHANGES *Northwest of Tharna, a place where prisoners are commonly exchanged* "Guided by the Tatrix, in perhaps no more than thirty minutes, we saw, gleaming in the distance, the Pillar of Exchanges. It lay about one hundred pasangs northwest of the city, and was a lonely white column of solid marble, perhaps four hundred feet in height and a hundred feet in diameter. It was accessible only on tarnback." Pg. 141, Outlaw of Gor.


PLAINS OF TURIA *large grassy area stretching from the Thassa and the Ta-Thassa Mountains* "I had left the vicinity of the Sardar Range in the month of Se-Var, which in the northern hemisphere is a winter month, and had journeyed south for months; and had come to what some call the Plains of Turia, others the Land of the Wagon Peoples, in the autumn of this hemisphere; there is, due apparently to the balance of land and water mass on Gor, no particular moderation of seasonal variations either in the northern or southeren hemisphere; nothing much, so to speak, to choose between them; on the other hand, Gor's temperaturs, on the whole, tend to be somewhat fircer than those of Earth, perhaps largely due to the fact of the wind-swept expanses of her gigantic land masses; indeed, though Gor is smaller than Earth, with consequent gravitational reduction, her actual land areas may be, for all I know, more extensive than those of my native planet; the areas of Gor which are mapped are large, but only a small fraction of the surface of the planet; much of Gor remains to her inhabitants simply terra incognita." Pg. 2 & 3, Nomads of Gor.


POLAR NORTH *a treeless plain covered with mosses, shrubs, and lichens during the summer, a frozen wasteland in other seasons. Home of the Red Hunters* "I looked downward, out across the ice of Ax Glacier. Beyond it lay the polar basin. The north is a hard country.

RAINFOREST-CANOPY *like the "ceiling" of the rainforest, it is 60' to 125' above the jungle floor this area contains the largest amount of birds, monkeys, reptiles, and insects* "The second level is often spoken of as the canopy, or as that of the canopies. This is the fantastic green cover which constitutes the main ceiling of the jungle. It is what would dominate one's vision if one were passing over the jungle in tarn flight or viewing it from the height of a tall mountain. Teh canopy, or zone of the canopies, ranges from about sixty to one hundred and twenty-five feet high, Gorean measure." Pg. 311, Explorers of Gor.


RAINFOREST-EMERGENT *125 to 200 gorean feet above the jungle floor, it has grown so much it pushes the ceiling down and overtakes it. Many birds live here, like the parrots, lits, and fleers* "The highest level or zone is that of the 'emergents,' that of those trees which have thrust themselves up above the dense canopies below them. This level is roughly from a hundred and twenty five feet Gorean to two hundred feet Gorean." Pg. 311, Explorers of Gor.


RAINFOREST-GROUND *area from the ground to 60', this area has many animals such as giani, jit monkeys, four toed leaf urts, and on the floor level, marsupials, tarsk, single-horned tabuk, jungle larls and panthers can be found* "The first zone extends from the ground to the beginning of the canopies above, some sixty feet in height, Gorean measure. We may perhaps, somewhat loosely, speak of this first zone as the 'floor,' or, better, 'ground zone,' of the rain forest." Pg. 311, Explorers of Gor.


RENCE ISLANDS *an area of islands which are formed by the intertwining of rence plants and floating on the water. These islands are rarely over 200' and 9' thick, with only a small amount showing above water, usually 3' or less* "The rence islands, on which the communities of rence growers dwell, are rather small, seldom more than two hundred by two hundred and fifty feet. They are formed entirely from the interwoven stems of the rence plants and float in the marsh. They are generally about eight to nine feet thick and have an exposed surface above the water of about three feet; as the rence stems break and rot away beneath the island, more layers are woven and placed on the surface." Pg. 13, Raiders of Gor.


SCHENDI RAINFOREST *area located on the border of the Thassa, near Schendi on the equator, which is home to many unique animals. Two lakes lie in the center of the forest, Lake Ngao and Lake Ushindi* "There is an incredible variety of trees in the rain forest, how many I cannot conjecture." Pg. 310, Explorers of Gor.


TAHARI DESERT *very large area located east of Tor, home to the Kavars and the Aretai* "'The secret is there,' said Samos, pointing to the map, 'in the Tahari." Pg. 34, Tribesmen of Gor.


VIKTEL ARIA *a military road which leads to Ar's Station, also known as Vosk Road* "It also commands, in effect, the northern terminus of one of the great roads, the Viktel Aria, or Ar's Triumph, leading toward Ar. This is also the road popularly known as the Vosk Road, particularly by those viewing it from a riverward direction." Pg. 63, Rogue of Gor.

THE WASTES*another name for the Tahari Desert* "The area, in extent, east of Tor, was hundreds of pasangs in depth, and perhaps thousands in length. The Gorean expression for this area simply means the Wastes, or the Emptiness. It is a vast area, and generally rocky, and hilly, save in the dune country. It is almost constantly windblown and almost waterless. In areas it has been centuries between rains. Its oases are fed from underground rivers flowing southeastward from the Voltai slopes." Pg. 33, Tribesmen of Gor.



BODIES OF WATER:

Pg. 24, Blood Brothers of Gor.


KAMBA RIVER *runs from the Rainforests to the Thassa* "The Kamba, as I may have mentioned, empties directly into Thassa; the Nyoka, on the other hand, empties into Schendi harbor, which is the harbor of the port of Schendi, its waters only then moving thence to Thassa." Pg. 99, Explorers of Gor.

Pg. 44, Marauders of Gor.


SUBEQUATORIAL CARTIUS *a part of the Cartius River* "'It had been thought, and shown on many maps," I said, "that the subequatorial Cartius not only flowed into Lake Ushindi, but emerged northward, traversing the sloping western flatlands to join the Vosk at Turmus.'" Pg. 16, Explorers of Gor.

THASSA CARTIUS *a branch of the Cartius River* "The actual source of the tributary to the Vosk, now called the Thassa Cartius, as you know, was found five years later by the. explorer, Ramus of Tabor, who, with a small expedition, over a period of nine months, fought and bartered his way through the river tribes, beyond the six cataracts, to the Ven highlands." Pg. 16, Explorers of Gor.


UA RIVER *connects Lake Ngao to Lake Shaba* "The Ua River is, literally, the Flower River." Pg. 100, Explorers of Gor.


VOSK RIVER *the largest river on Gor, site of many fierce battles it starts in the Voltai Mountain Range and runs to the Thassa* "As I crossed the Vosk, that mighty river, some forty pasangs in width, which hurtles past the frontiers of Ar to pour into the Tamber Gulf, I realized that I was at last within the borders of the Empire of Ar." Pg. 72, Tarnsman of Gor.


VOSK DELTA *at the mouth of the Vosk River where it enters the Tamber Gulf* "No one had been found who would guide me into the delta of the Vosk. The bargeman of the Vosk will not take their wide, broad-bottomed craft into the delta. The channels of the Vosk, to be sure, shift from season to season, and the delta is often little more than a trackless marsh, literally hundreds of square pasangs of estuarial wilderness." Pg. 5, Raiders of Gor.



MOUNTAINS:



FULVIANS *located in the foothills of the Voltai Mountains* "'It was much hotter here, in this area, and at this time of day, than it had been earlier in the villa districts, in the hills northeast of Ar, the Fulvians, foothills in to the Voltai.'" Pg. 299, Magicians of Gor.


HRIMGAR MOUNTAINS *the mountain range south of the polar north* "The Hrimgar Mountains are not as rugged or formidable as any of these chains, and they are penetrated by numerous passes." Pg. 192, Beasts of Gor.


RED MOUNTAINS *south of the Mountains of Thentis, Northeast of Ar* "I was somewhere in the Voltai Range, sometimes called the Red Mountains, south of the river and to the east of Ar." Pg. 144, Tarnsman of Gor.


SARDAR MOUNTAINS *1000 pasangs from the city of Ko-ro-ba, home of the Priest Kings* "'The Priest-Kings,' said my father, 'maintain the Sacred Place in the Sardar Mountains, a wild vastness into which no man penetrates. The Sacred Place, to the minds of most men here, is taboo, perilous." Pg. 20, Tarnsman of Gor


TA-THASSA MOUNTAINS *in the southern hemisphere of Gor, its western side is bordered by the Thassa* "The fleets of tarn ships of Port Kar are the scourge of Thassa, beautiful, lateen-rigged galleys that ply the trade of plunder and enslavement from the Ta-Thassa Mountains of the southern hemisphere of Gor to the ice lakes of the North; and westward even beyond the terraced island of Cos and the rocky Tyros, with its labyrinths of vart caves." Pg. 6, Raiders of Gor


THENTIS MOUNTAINS *before the Barrens, North of the Voltai Range. Place where Tarn are found.* "They are surely not a barrier, however, in the sense that the Voltai Mountains, or even the Thentis Mountains or Ta-Thassa Mountains, are barriers." Pg. 192, Beasts of Gor.


VOLTAI RANGE *south of the Mountains of Thentis, Northeast of Ar* "I was somewhere in the Voltai Range, sometimes called the Red Mountains, south of the river and to the east of Ar." Pg. 144, Tarnsman of Gor
