A large and largely peaceful river running from the Riverlands, where it splits off from the Black-Gold River to the Marshlands, where it empties into the bay of Nels’ Landing, near Denzegk. On the way the river winds through the lands of the Hawthorne, the de Pola, the Laira, the Vettini and the Gosteli. This makes it a vital trade channel for the Marshlands, as well as a source of fresh water for Denzegk.
The Master of Ships of the Pale Maiden resides in the de Pola-controlled city of Ebona.
During the Marshlander Civil War the river was used by Anthony Lugus to escape capture after and ambush by the forces of Pontreas and Gosteli.
