IIRC It's only mentioned once, citing how far it is. Other than that, nothing.



Almost no new information about Ghiscari, Qarth and Great Moraq.

I believe much of the Qartheen and Ghiscari stuff was withheld on purpose.

Why :o

Is it because we, readers, already know enough stuff about these two people? Well, I'm not really into Ghiscari but I wish we had a little more information about Qartheen. It's ok, though.

BUT

nothing about Faros and Moraq... which is sad :crying:

In my nerdiest moment ever, someone asked me if something I said was true, and I replied, "by the stone cow of Faros, I swear." lol.

No one can overtop that. :lmao:

I think the point of "Ulthos" is much like the "Cities of the Winged Men" or "Carcosa" - to show how the edges of the map are shrouded in legend.



The whole point is that they explicitly *do not know* if Ulthos is an entire other continent, or just another large sub-region of Essos. They have third-hand and fourth-hand reports from shipping trade to the Jade Sea that south of Asshai there's this other landmass called "Ulthos" -- but is it another Great Moraq, or something else? They've only had the barest mention and really...all they know about it is the *name*.

I like the provenance but would like to get just a tiny bit of info haha

In my head canon Brandon the Shipwright settles there due to his direwolves breeding with dragons. Starks ride dire-dragons while the God of Dubstep drops it hard when they kick ass.

Yes its very Heavy Metal-like
