Arcorar, also known as the Great King Forest, was a large forest region that at one time included the realms/domains of Rystall Wood, Cormanthyr, Elven Court, Jhyrennstar, Semberholme and Uvaeren.[1]


At its largest extent, Arcorar stretched from west of Cormyr to east of the Moonsea.[1]


The forest was originally populated after the Crown Wars when the elves were spreading out looking for new unspoiled regions to settle.[2][1] Over time, this forest broke up into smaller and smaller pieces until the name was no longer relevant, with the largest remaining fragment being Cormanthor.[1]
