Fromia River

This muddy river tumbles out of the northern Antiquian Mountains into the lowlands of Aenoch where it wanders for many hundreds of miles until it reaches the sea. It is a muddy affair in its early courses, cutting down through steep valleys and over precarious falls, pulling dirt, soil, and clays along with it. But when the Olgdon spills into it, it clears and widens, consuming that massive volume of water and pushing it all down to the sea.

The upper courses of the river and its many feeder creeks attract prospectors of all kinds as it is rumored that out of this region of the Antiquian Mountains come its only precious metal - silver. Though, in truth, it must be said that few dwarves or gnomes ever bother with the region, indicating the lack of veracity behind this claim.

Where the river spills into the sea lie the Formian Ostiary, a wide, wet land.
