The Faith seems to be evolving much like the Catholic Church in Europe.

With the Septons army reinstated, and the Septon becoming more involved in government.

Only a matter of time before the Westeri Inquisition happens, and they start beheading anybody that refuses to worship the Seven

I want to know about the black goat of Qohor.

Seems from the map to be a forested region.

Reminds me of Shub Niggurath

I'd like to see some sort of religious history... The people of Westeros (who came over from Essos thousands/hundreds of years ago) believe in the Old Gods/weirwood trees (north of the Neck, descend from the First Men), the Faith of the Seven (south of the Neck, descend from the Andals), the Drowned God (Iron Islands), and the Red God (anyone who follows a Red Priest(ess)). Belief systems in Essos are different... Dothraki believe in the Horse God, the House of Black and White in Braavos accommodates believers of numerous gods...

I read somewhere that the southern continent of Sothoryos is mostly in ruins. At this point, we don't know anything about the geography except what we see on maps, or the people who live(d) there. What was their culture like? What sort of belief systems did they have? Are any of those belief systems accommodated in the HoBaW?

Why would GRRM want its northern coast included in maps if he didn't have some use for it later in the story?
