This Map, originally by Erhard Ringer, appeared in a German Edition of the Norman Scrolls, and was scanned and colored by Theron whilst translated by Bandark. I have corrected and added certain items from Theron's map, in addition to adding the "hot spots" and including the available information about various places. I have taken the liberty to add certain items that do not exist in the Norman scrolls, where some tavern or Hall owners of IRC/Gor have placed their HomeStones.
Comments, criticism, and correction are welcomed (and requested!) -- kindly email Me or drop by #the-Lara-inn and we'll talk about it over a goblet of fine Arran or Cosian Ka-la-na

A Note on Gorean Directions
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


“For purposes of convenience [Tarl Cabot speaking in Scroll #4, Nomads of Gor] I am recounting directions in English terms, thinking it would be considerably difficult for the reader to follow references to the Gorean compass. Briefly, for those it might interest, all directions on the planet are calculated from the Sardar Mountains, which for the purposes of calculating direction play a role analogous to our north pole.

“The two main directions, so to speak, in the Gorean way of thinking are Ta-Sardar-Var and Ta-Sardar-Ki-Var, or as one would normally say, Var and Ki-Var; 'Var' means a turning and 'Ki' signifies negation; thus, rather literally, one might speak of 'turning to the Sardar' and 'not turning to the Sardar', something like either facing north or not facing north; on the other hand, more helpfully, the Gorean compass is divided into eight, as opposed to our four, main quadrants, or better said, divisions, and each of these itself is of course subdivided. There is also a system of latitude and longitude figured on the basis of the Gorean day, calculated in Ahn, twenty of which constitute a Gorean day, and Ehn and Ihn, which are subdivisions of the Ahn, or Gorean hour. Ta-Sardar-Var is a direction which appears on all Gorean maps; Ta-Sardar-Ki-Var, of course, never appears on a map, since it would be any direction which is not Ta-Sardar-Var.

The Gorean Directions

  Kail       |      Ror

   Cart      |     Tun
             |
           Vask
        [Verus Var]

“Accordingly, the main divisions of the map are Ta-Sardar-Var, and the other seven; taking the Sardar as our 'north pole' the other directions, clockwise as Earth clocks move (Gorean clock hands move in the opposite direction) would be, first, Ta-Sardar-Var, then, in order, Ror, Rim, Tun, Vask (sometimes spoken of as Verus Var, or the true turning away), Cart, Klim, and Kail, and then again, of course, Ta-Sardar-Var.”

The [Thassa-]Cartius River incidentally was named for the direction it lies from the city of Ar.
