The area of Forodwaith that lay north of Eriador was known as Forochel, together with the great ice-bay and cape, which carried the same name. This area roughly corresponded with the area where the Blue Mountains and the Iron Mountains once met.
Forochel was also around this area that the ancient stronghold of Morgoth, Utumno, was once located in the First Age. Forochel inhabited a tribe of brown skinned people called the Lossoth, or Snowmen. The chief of these tribes sheltered the Arthedain king Arvedui for a time and was given the Ring of Barahir as a reward.
Appearances in adaptationsEdit
The areas surrounding the Ice-Bay of Forochel is among the regions fleshed out in The Lord of the Rings Online. The lands around and between Lossoth settlements are available for exploration and adventuring.
