Forochel is a region found within the land of Eriador.
Forochel (Sindarin for Northern Ice) is a frozen tundra found in the northern-most region of Eriador, where the Blue Mountains form a massive barrier on the western border. These frost-bitten expanses surrounding the infamous Ice Bay lie encased by steep mountain sides but connects to the Great Sea to the north and into the even more inhospitable Forodwaith to the east.
Forochel will always be remembered for when King Arvedui escaped Fornost in III 1974, hid in dwarf-mines at the slopes of the Blue Mountains with his men, and eventually gained help from the Lossoth who rightfully feared Angmar's wrath. Círdan the Shipwright sent a ship west of the mountains for the King and it arrived in March III 1975. However, a great storm trapped the ship in the ice masses until it was broken, whether that was an act of the Witch-king of Angmar or not is unknown. The last King of Arnor and his men were lost, and so also the two palantíri of Amon Sûl and of Annúminas. Today adventurers supporting the Free Peoples, as well as foes out of Angmar, are seeking other heirlooms that were lost but maybe lie waiting a finder under the snow.
