The forest of Ishtar is a dry forest that follows the coast south of Findle and serves as the major source of timber and game for the city. This forest is mainly composed of small oak and wild olive trees and is dotted with large hills and boulders. The forest is easy to navigate as expert foresters regularly clear dangerous brush and apart from the occasional wild goat or wolf the biggest threat is banditry.

Ishtar is home of Quixote and is host to the Blackhorn Rangers, a group of woodsmen who provide goods and service while occasionally preying on the local trade caravans.
