Gorhart is a small Almain settlement on the edge of the Odarath forest. It is sometimes called the "Camp of Cowards" because many of its first residents were Almain settlers from the west who were afraid to go further into Dalentarth's magical forests. Some of its inhabitants are still suspicious of the Fae and Alfar.
Gorhart was founded around 1110 BE (2157 NW). Important figures in Gorhart's past include Alden Gorhart, who established the Gorhart Inn, and St. Odwig, who began construction of the mission that bears his name.
Gorhart is the first settlement in Amalur that the Fateless One reaches after escaping from the Well of Souls. You will first encounter this village after Agarth gives you the main quest Into the Light.
In the centre of Gorhart, the Corner Shop, Golden Age Alchemy and the Gorhart Inn are clustered around the town well. By Gorhart Inn is the Special Delivery Chest, where equipment and Twists of Fate cards from DLC are stored for the player. On a hill at the edge of the village is the enclosed St. Odwig's Mission, including a shrine, chapel, bunkhouse and reliquary. The graveyard is behind Golden Age Alchemy at the foot of the mission's hill. On the graveyard are several graves, including the old grave of Alden Gorhart, the town's founder.
The town jail is in a cave called Lawbreaker's Grotto.
Gorhart is on the south-western edge of Odarath in Dalentarth near the Allestar Glade. The nearest settlement is the gnomish Allestar Tower. On the other side of Odarath are the summer fae House of Ballads and Shieldring Keep in Yolvan.
